Thriller Thursday (11/17/16 Edition)

Happy #ThrillerThursday to two new entries in acclaimed series mysteries:

DESOLATION FLATS by Andrew Hunt
Two stars for the third book in the Hillerman Prize-winning Art Oveson Mystery series, starring a Mormon deputy sheriff in 1930s Salt Lake City. “[A] knockout of a novel… so powerful it can be taken as a stand-alone. The real magic here, though, is the author’s ability to make this ordinary man so fascinating. Credit Hunt’s writing. Like his hero, it’s only plain on the surface.”
Booklist, starred review

STONE COFFIN by Kjell Eriksson
The newest book in the award-winning and internationally-acclaimed detective Ann Lindell mystery series, shortlisted for the Prize for Best Swedish Crime Novel. “When a speeding car kills a young mother and daughter, complications indicate much more than a simple hit-and-run. Eriksson’s seventh is full of twists, three-dimensional characters, quiet authority, and heart.” — Kirkus Reviews

Thriller Thursday (7/16/15 Edition)

We’ve got a couple of cops on the case and two terrific mysteries for you this #ThrillerThursday:

AFTER THE STORM by Linda Castillo
A tornado unearths human remains leading to a thirty-year-old cold case in Painters Mill. Meanwhile, a very emotional and personal turmoil strikes at Police Chief Kate Burkholder’s budding relationship with state agent John Tomasetti. “Another strong showing from a very fine crime writer.” — Booklist

FLASK OF THE DRUNKEN MASTER by Susan Spann
Spann’s third historical set in 16th-century Japan offers an accessible entry into the country’s fascinating history and culture. Now that Laura Joh Rowland has finished the ‘Sano Ichiro’ series, Spann’s mysteries, as well as the excellent historicals of Dale Furutani and I.J. Parker, will fill the gap. An added draw are Hiro and Father Mateo, who make a remarkable crime-solving team.” Library Journal

OPEN GRAVE by Kjell Eriksson
The sixth book in this award-winning Swedish crime series finds police inspector Ann Lindell investigating the death of a Nobel Prize-winning professor. “More a psychological study than a police procedural, this entry is for connoisseurs of subtle, character-driven crime fiction.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

Thriller Thursday (5/1/14 Edition)

May day, May day! We're desperately lost in these great new mysteries: 

BLACK LIES, RED BLOOD by Kjell Eriksson
Swedish Detective Ann Lindell is excited about her new romance—that is, until her lover is identified as a suspect in a homeless man's murder...and disappears. “Eriksson, nominated five times for Sweden’s best crime novel award, effectively combines procedural and psychological detail in this involving mystery.” — Booklist 

MURDER ON THE HOOF by Kathryn O'Sullivan
In this delightfully cozy sequel to FOAL PLAY, Fire Chief Colleen McCabe must find a murderer who is targeting actors in the local community theatre production. “An amiable mystery, sure to interest fans of Margaret Maron’s Deborah Knott series, also set in North Carolina.” — Booklist

EVERY HIDDEN FEAR by Linda Rodriguez
In award-winner Linda Rodriguez's new Skeet Bannion mystery, the half-Cherokee heroine grapples with murder and tricky family ties. “A local bad boy returns to town, reveals long-held secrets, which results in his murder. Police officer Skeet must unravel a complicated family drama to save a teenager's life. This third engrossing title is set in Missouri, near Kansas City.” — Library Journal
