thrillerthurs-9-8-16Happy #ThrillerThursday to series regulars and new mysteries:

THE WHITE MIRROR by Elsa Hart
THREE starred reviews! “Hart seamlessly melds the complex politics of 18th-century Asia with a superior fair-play plot in her second whodunit featuring Chinese librarian Li Du.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

BECAUSE I’M WATCHING by Christina Dodd
THREE starred reviews! “Dodd continues her flawless pivoting from romance to suspense with the third book in her riveting series set in the small Washington town of Virtue Falls. Scary, sexy, and smartly written, BECAUSE I’M WATCHING is Dodd at the top of her game.” — Booklist, starred review

KAROLINA’S TWINS by Ronald H. Balson
A saga inspired by true events of a Holocaust survivor’s quest to fulfill a promise, return to Poland and find two sisters lost during World War II. “Readers who crave more books like Balson’s ONCE WE WERE BROTHERS and Kristin Hannah’s best-selling THE NIGHTINGALE will be enthralled by KAROLINA’S TWINS.”
Booklist, starred review

STRIPPED BARE by Shannon Baker
Featured in a recent Library Journal mystery spotlight, STRIPPED BARE stars Kate Fox, a female Walt Longmire in Nebraska’s cattle country, who must find the person who shot her cheating husband, the county sheriff. “Baker’s writing evokes the beauty of the Nebraska Sandhills, and her colorful cast of secondary characters adds a depth of charm. Devotees of Craig Johnson’s ‘Walt Longmire’ series and fans of Judy Clemens are sure to appreciate this title.” — Library Journal, starred review & September 2016 Pick of the Month  readmoreremove
