Thriller Thursday (1/12/16 Edition)

Happy #ThrillerThursday! We’re ecstatic that the world can now read Jane Harper’s THE DRY, but did you also hear Nancy Pearl enthusiastically recommend Becky Masterman’s Brigid Quinn series (A TWIST OF THE KNIFE) on NPR’s “Morning Edition” today?! So many good mysteries.

THE DRY by Jane Harper
A January 2017 LibraryReads and Indie Next pick with THREE starred reviews! “Luke lied. You lied. Be at the funeral.” This is the note Federal Agent Aaron Falk receives after hearing that his childhood best friend Luke has been found dead after committing a terrible crime in Jane Harper’s first mystery. When Falk reluctantly returns to his hometown amid the worst drought in a century to see if there’s more to Luke’s death than there seems to be, a long-buried mystery from Falk’s past resurfaces and he finds that small towns have always hidden big secrets. “A stunner… It’s a small-town, big-secrets page-turner with a shocker of an ending… Recommend this one to fans of James Lee Burke and Robert Crais, who mix elements of ‘bromance’ into their hard-boiled tales.” — Booklist, starred review

THE NOWHERE MAN by Gregg Hurwitz
Two starred reviews! In “bestseller Hurwitz’s stellar sequel to 2016’s ORPHAN X,”* Evan Smoak, a.k.a. “The Nowhere Man,” is captured, drugged, and spirited off to a remote location, heavily guarded from all approaches. His captors think they have Evan trapped and helpless, but they don’t realize that they’ve locked themselves in with one of the deadliest and most resourceful Orphans. “Evan’s efforts to elude Van Sciver and company will keep readers on the edge of their seats, but it’s Hurwitz’s engaging, sympathetic characters who place this thriller above the pack.” — *Publishers Weekly, starred review readmoreremove

Nancy Pearl LOVES Becky Masterman!

America’s favorite librarian Nancy Pearl was on NPR’s “Morning Edition” today, and she suggested some “under-the-radar” reads, including Becky Masterman’s Brigid Quinn series (RAGE AGAINST THE DYING, FEAR THE DARKNESS, A TWIST OF THE KNIFE)!

“Becky Masterman is an author I recently discovered. What I love about these books is that they’re page-turners, they’re really thrilling novels. The main character is a woman named Brigid Quinn, who is a former FBI agent now retired. Brigid is 60. I love that. When have we last seen the hero of a thriller age 60?
“But when Brigid was in the FBI, she was mostly assigned cases where she had to go undercover. So all of her working life, she has had to be somebody other than herself. And now she’s retired and married for the first time and trying to figure out what it’s like to be her[self] and not somebody else.
“Then, a case very similar to some of the cases that she worked on when she was in the FBI kind of falls into her lap. So the present and the past are coming together in this page-turning thriller.”

Check out all of Nancy’s suggestions here. A TWIST OF THE KNIFE will be available from Minotaur Books on March 21, 2017.
