Thriller Thursday (10/29/15 Edition)

Get in the Halloween spirit with these new mysteries:

CORRUPTED by Lisa Scottoline
A November 2015 Indie Next pick! Bennie Rosato revisits her past when she represents Jason Leftavick, a former client she couldn’t free from juvenile detention after he finally stood up to a class bully. Now Jason’s an adult, accused of murdering the very same bully who first got him in hot water. “Both the juvenile case and the murder case are compelling on their own, but the combination and the glimpse into Bennie’s younger self make this a wonderful addition to an always-strong series. Scottoline is an A-lister all the way, and her Rosato series is always an A-plus in terms of reader interest.” — Booklist, starred review

WHAT YOU SEE by Hank Phillippi Ryan
Reporter Jane Ryland and detective Jake Brogan explore where their loyalties lie as Jane looks into a child abduction and Jake investigates a stabbing case that leads him to a dark conspiracy of extortion and stolen lives. “Ryan’s latest thriller is built like an intricate house of cards, threatening to crumble at any second. Mystery readers get ready: you will find yourself racing to the finish.” — Library Journal, starred review readmoreremove

Friday Reads: HOME IS BURNING

One of our favorite memoirs of the fall season, Dan Marshall’s HOME IS BURNING is finally on shelves this week! We looooved Dan’s potty-mouthed, touching account of caring for his ailing parents and we’re not the only ones:

A BEA 2015 Editor’s Buzz Panel selection
An ALA Annual “Read ‘n Rave” selection
A Fall 2015 Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers pick
A November 2015 Indie Next pick
A Maximum Shelf Awareness selection
An Entertainment Weekly Fall Books pick

“Marshall evokes sympathy, but never pity, as he conveys his family’s pain through fart jokes, farcical misadventures (sexual and medical), and—in the middle of all the confusion—emotion so raw and potent it’s almost jarring. Honesty is the key; Marshall never shies away from the filthy, uncomfortable reality, and it’s that brutal truth-telling that makes his memoir a must-read.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Marshall’s brutally honest account of the worst year of his life will have readers marveling at how a memoir about two sick parents can still be so laugh-out-loud hilarious.” — Library Journal, starred review

“…funny, heartbreaking, and unapologetically crude. A poignantly provocative memoir.” — Kirkus Reviews

“[A] raucous, rowdy, heartbreaking story.” — Booklist
