Thriller Thursday (2/4/16 Edition)

Detectives and amateur sleuths abound in today’s #ThrillerThursday lineup:

SOUTH OF NOWHERE by Minerva Koenig
“This sophomore outing clearly demonstrates that Koenig’s acclaimed debut, NINE DAYS, was no fluke. Julie [Kalas] is an original heroine with a gutsy attitude and take-charge approach to life. Fans of Sue Grafton will welcome this hard-boiled protagonist.” — Library Journal, starred review

“The bodies keep piling up in this complicated tale, which offers enough mayhem, double-crossing, and general weirdness on the Tex-Mex border to last a lifetime.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review

THE LANGUAGE OF SECRETS by Ausma Zehanat Khan
Khan returns with another haunting mystery following detectives Esa Khattak and Rachel Getty as they investigate the murder of a federal agent who was deep undercover in a terrorist ring. “A heartfelt novel for lovers of crime fiction and anyone interested in the complexities of living as a Muslim in the West today.”
Library Journal, starred review
