Thriller Thursday (9/28/17 Edition)

This #ThrillerThursday we’re reading two new series mysteries and a chilling true crime account involving the Coors brewery.

SLEEP LIKE A BABY by Charlaine Harris
In the next installment of the #1 New York Times bestselling and LibraryReads author Charlaine Harris’s Aurora Teagarden series, Roe has a newborn to care for, a vulnerable new marriage to nurture, and a new puzzle—who is this mystery woman dead in their backyard, and what happened to their home nurse, Virginia? “Engrossing… Harris smoothly weaves together several seemingly unrelated threads to create a richly layered tale of how the bad choices people make in life can come back to haunt them. ” — Publishers Weekly

TRACE by Archer Mayor
Two starred reviews for the newest book in the Joe Gunther series! “Outstanding… Mayor keeps the suspense high as he showcases each of his detectives’ special talents—Spinney’s patience and doggedness, Kunkle’s unorthodox but effective rule-bending, and Martens’s bravery and resourcefulness—in this welcome addition to the long-running series.” – Publishers Weekly, starred review readmoreremove

Thriller Thursday (11/17/16 Edition)

Happy #ThrillerThursday to two new entries in acclaimed series mysteries:

DESOLATION FLATS by Andrew Hunt
Two stars for the third book in the Hillerman Prize-winning Art Oveson Mystery series, starring a Mormon deputy sheriff in 1930s Salt Lake City. “[A] knockout of a novel… so powerful it can be taken as a stand-alone. The real magic here, though, is the author’s ability to make this ordinary man so fascinating. Credit Hunt’s writing. Like his hero, it’s only plain on the surface.”
Booklist, starred review

STONE COFFIN by Kjell Eriksson
The newest book in the award-winning and internationally-acclaimed detective Ann Lindell mystery series, shortlisted for the Prize for Best Swedish Crime Novel. “When a speeding car kills a young mother and daughter, complications indicate much more than a simple hit-and-run. Eriksson’s seventh is full of twists, three-dimensional characters, quiet authority, and heart.” — Kirkus Reviews
