Thriller Thursday (4/13/17 Edition)

We’ve got two amazing debuts and three excellent series entries for you this #ThrillerThursday:

IF WE WERE VILLAINS by M.L. Rio
A literary debut in the tradition of Donna Tartt’s THE SECRET HISTORY about a group of seven young actors studying Shakespeare at an elite arts school who find their friendship turned into nasty rivalry that leaves one of them dead after a teacher switches around the in-character casting. “This novel about obsession at the conservatory will thoroughly obsess you.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

THREE ENVELOPES by Nir Hezroni
A thrilling debut that delves into the twisted mind of a rogue agent in the Israeli intelligence agency and his mysterious plot for revenge. “Hezroni’s superior thriller debut will send chills up the spines of even jaded genre fans. Hezroni maintains a high level of suspense as he expertly toggles between past and present en route to the heart-stopping conclusion.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

DEVIL’S BREATH by G.M. Malliet
Max Tudor must contend with his new role as a father as well as the murder of a glamorous film star in the next installment in Malliet’s wildly popular series. “Though dedicated readers may miss local favorites, it’s great to see the return of Malliet’s wit in a high-seas whodunit that deftly skewers the Hollywood high life.” — Kirkus Reviews readmoreremove

Thriller Thursday (10/8/15 Edition)

A couple of cozy mysteries will take the chill off this #ThrillerThursday:

THE HAUNTED SEASON by G.M. Malliet
In the fifth installment in the series, former-spy-turned-cleric Max Tudor must contend with his new role as a father as well as a murder all too close to home in Nether Monkslip. “As always, the mystery is as delicious as the tarts and as full of surprises as the Christmas cakes sold in the local bakery. The first three books in the Max Tudor series—WICKED AUTUMN, FATAL WINTER, and PAGAN SPRING—have been nominated for Agatha Awards, and no wonder: she has the cozy formula and tone down pat…” — Booklist, starred review

THE GRAVE SOUL by Ellen Hart
In Hart’s “riveting”* 23rd mystery featuring Minneapolis PI and restaurateur Jane Lawless, the investigator searches for the truth behind the death of Kira Adler’s mother, which has haunted Kira for many years. “Readers will be caught up in this harrowing look at the damage done in the name of family preservation.”
