Thriller Thursday (8/2/18 Edition)

Twisty thrillers and series favorites return in today’s #ThrillerThursday picks:

BLOODY SUNDAY by Ben Coes
Also available in audio
“A simple premise drives bestseller Coes’s excellent eighth thriller featuring indomitable CIA agent Dewey Andreas: North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un is dying of cancer. It’s a complicated mission, and in the end only Dewey has the skills, courage, and sheer badass tenacity to pull it off. A ticking clock ratchets up the tension in the best entry in the series so far.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

SHE WAS THE QUIET ONE by Michele Campbell
Also available in audio
When twin sisters Rose and Bel Enright enroll in a prestigious New Hampshire boarding school, it brings out a rivalry between them that few ever knew existed…and leaves one girl dead. “…Campbell’s skillful characterization and her shocking final twist make this follow-up to IT’S ALWAYS THE HUSBAND well worthwhile. Readers who enjoyed Simone St. James’ boarding-school mystery, THE BROKEN GIRLS, should give this a try.” — Booklist

REQUIEM by Geir Tangen
The first in a new Nordic crime series starring journalist Viljar Gudmundsson and Investigator Lotte Skeisvoll. “Already an international best seller, this initially self-published debut by a Norwegian crime book blogger is true to the genre. A dark and slightly creepy thriller that fans of Henning Mankell and Arnaldur Indridason will appreciate.” — Library Journal readmoreremove
