Thriller Thursday (4/28/16 Edition)

Make sure these stellar new mysteries are on your shelves today!

MURDER AT THE 42ND STREET LIBRARY by Con Lehane
The first book in an amazing new series that features crime at some of America’s most famous institutions of higher reading! Ray Ambler, the curator of the library’s crime fiction collection, joins forces with NYPD homicide detective Mike Cosgrove in hopes of bringing a murderer to justice. “Lehane awards his previous detective, bartender Brian McNulty, a cameo but focuses on the complicated Ray, who looks like a promising newcomer in the talented-amateur ranks.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

HARD LIGHT by Elizabeth Hand
In the third Cass Neary mystery, the offbeat photographer is reunited with her long-lost lover, Quinn O’Boyle, who is wanted by both Interpol and the Russian mob. When Quinn then fails to show at their rendezvous point, Cass is fearful she’ll be the next to disappear, and goes on the run. “This great adventure story starring a troubled but intriguing protagonist will please Cass fans, those who like their kick-ass heroines north of 22, and readers who fancy a walk on the wild side.”
Library Journal, starred review

KILL SWITCH by Jonathan Maberry
In the eighth book in the series, Joe Ledger must stop a terrorist about to unleash electronic pulse bombs on 100 US cities. “A blend of sf, horror, technothriller, and crime novel, this is one of the best adrenaline reads out there. A hot pick for anyone who likes The X-Files (Maberry wrote for this franchise as well) or other apocalyptic fiction by authors such as Ben H. Winters and Colson Whitehead.”

Happy National Library Week 2016!

Happy National Library Week! Con Lehane wants to tell you all about his love of libraries and how they helped shape his newest book, MURDER AT THE 42ND STREET LIBRARY. Take it away, Con!

My new mystery novel has a librarian as a protagonist, something of an adventure for me because I’ve never been a librarian. Much as I love libraries, and while I’ve spent time in a good many of them, in order to write about a librarian and a library, which I planned to do in MURDER AT THE 42ND STREET LIBRARY, I needed to do more than read about it or look at one; I needed to feel what it’s like to work in a library. I’d been to the New York Public Library’s main branch, the 42nd Street Library hundreds of times, so the iconic structure at the corner of 42nd Street and Fifth Avenue presented itself as the logical place to house my new protagonist Raymond Ambler. To do so, I made him curator of the library’s (fictional) crime fiction collection.

Next, I wormed my way into an appointment to the Frederick Lewis Allen Memorial Room at the 42nd Street Library. The Allen room at the 42nd Street end of the second floor marble corridor is designated for writers with a book contract who are making use of the general research collections. It requires a key card to enter and has a dozen or so desk spaces that one uses on a first-come first-served basis. It’s place where you can hang your hat, so to speak, and leave your materials (in a little cubby, desks are not reserved) overnight. The fact of the matter is I did have a book contract but my main purpose was not to use the research collection. My aim was to absorb—to be and work at the library until I knew in my bones what my new friend Raymond Ambler knew and felt. To that end, I spent most of the winter of 2012 ensconced on the second floor of the library writing the first draft of MURDER AT THE 42ND STREET LIBRARY. readmoreremove

THE LAST PAINTING OF SARA DE VOS by Dominic Smith
Two starred reviews for this novel that deftly bridges the historical and the contemporary, tracking a collision course between a rare landscape by a female Dutch painter of the golden age, an inheritor of the work in 1950s Manhattan, and a celebrated art historian who painted a forgery of it in her youth. “Highly evocative of time and place, this stunning novel explores a triumvirate of fate, choice, and consequence and is worthy of comparison to Tracy Chevalier’s GIRL WITH A PEARL EARRING and Donna Tartt’s THE GOLDFINCH.” — Library Journal, starred review
