Thriller Thursday (7/31/14 Edition)

We’re wishing an early #ThrillerThursday to these mysteries coming out next week since Anne will be on vacation (reading a thriller, naturally):

CITY OF GHOSTS by Kelli Stanley
In award-winning author Stanley’s latest mystery, P.I. Miranda Corbie is searching for her long-lost mother, but along the way she must expose a Nazi spy and clear her name after being framed for murder. “It’s neonoir in a classical five-act structure, starring one of crime’s most arresting heroines.” — Library Journal, starred review on CITY OF SECRETS

DEAD LINE by Chris Ewan
In this fast-paced thriller from the acclaimed author of the Good Thief series, a highly trained hostage negotiation specialist will do anything to find out what happened to his missing fianceé. “This adrenaline-fueled, stand-alone thriller is more akin to Ewan’s SAFE HOUSE than to his Good Thief caper novels, with Daniel Trent a driven protagonist in the Jack Reacher mold. Readers will want to see more of Trent, and this page-turner, full of twists and turns, cries out for a sequel.”
