Thriller Thursday (1/5/16 Edition)

New year, new mysteries!

A happy #ThrillerThursday to MRS. SHERLOCK HOLMES: The True Story of New York City’s Greatest Female Detective and the 1917 Missing Girl Case That Captivated a Nation by Brad Ricca!

Kirkus‘s starred review said, “The author of SUPER BOYS: The Amazing Adventures of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster—The Creators of Superman returns with the astonishing story of the first female U.S. district attorney. Rapid, compelling storytelling informed by rigorous research and enlivened by fecund imagination.”

Now allow us to whet your appetite for a compelling true crime book coming in April: INCENDIARY: The Psychiatrist, the Mad Bomber, and the Invention of Criminal Profiling by Michael Cannell. Long before the specter of terrorism haunted the public imagination, a serial bomber stalked 1950s New York. The race to catch him would give birth to a new science called criminal profiling.

Our friends at Minotaur have put together a very cool interactive map to follow the “Mad Bomber” throughout NYC! Once on the site, you can click the Right Arrow to turn through “pages” that describe the various bombings while also showing you on the map the location in the city.

Look for an extended excerpt of INCENDIARY in the April issue of Smithsonian Magazine (on stands March 29). readmoreremove
