Now on to this week’s new books!

HE SAID/SHE SAID by Erin Kelly
Two starred reviews! On the eve of a solar eclipse, a couple forced into hiding discovers that they can no longer run from their past in this taut psychological suspense novel. “HE SAID/SHE SAID is a thriller to savor, and should be one of the highlights of the summer.” — Associated Press

WOLF ON A STRING by Benjamin Black
Bestselling author Black turns his eye to sixteenth century Prague and a story of murder, magic and the dark art of wielding extraordinary power. “Black displays his mastery of yet another mystery subgenre in this brooding, atmospheric whodunit set in 16th-century Prague. Superior prose complements the intricate plot.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

YOU BELONG TO ME by Colin Harrison
An elite immigration attorney and obsessive collector of antique New York City maps is drawn into a swiftly escalating series of murders in Harrison’s latest whodunit. “In his latest New York-centered crime thriller, Harrison spins a tightly wound tale of obsession and betrayal. The narrative is as impressively constructed as the maps in Paul’s collection: each section laid out in seamless order to allow for a satisfyingly neat conclusion.” — Publishers Weekly readmoreremove

Thriller Thursday (3/9/17 Edition)

Happy #ThrillerThursday! First, some nice awards news: three Minotaur titles have been nominated for the 2017 Barry Awards:

Best Novel
A GREAT RECKONING by Louise Penny

Best Thriller
THE ONE MAN by Andrew Gross
COLLECTING THE DEAD by Spencer Kope

The readers of Deadly Pleasures Mystery Magazine will vote on these nominations and the award winners will be announced as part of the Opening Ceremonies of Bouchercon in Toronto on October 12, 2017.

Here’s what we’re reading this week:

THE FIFTH ELEMENT by Jorgen Brekke
Two starred reviews! Set in northern Norway around Trondheim, Brekke’s “stellar”* third installment in his Odd Singsaker homicide detective series is divided into four sections and follows what happens when Odd searches for his missing wife. “This narrative device is initially perplexing, but it all makes perfect sense in the end.” — *Publishers Weekly, starred review

BLUE LIGHT YOKOHAMA by Nicolas Obregon
Two starred reviews! “After a tantalizing prologue, Obregon maintains a high level of suspense throughout his superior fiction debut, an intricately constructed whodunit that doesn’t sacrifice depth of characterization for plot. While the complex mystery itself will keep readers turning pages, the book’s real strength is Iwata, a compellingly tormented lead, whose demons don’t prevent him from doggedly pursuing the truth.” — Publishers Weekly, starred & boxed review readmoreremove

In the fifth series mystery, Bell Elkins investigates a West Virginia nursing home where Alzheimer patients are dying at alarming rates. “The setting and the tone will appeal to fans of both Sharyn McCrumb and Julia Spencer-Fleming, and the introspective protagonist and literary quality recommend it to followers of Tana French and Louise Penny. Another outstanding entry in a superb series.”

Minotaur Stars Roundup

We’re seeing *stars* for these four excellent mysteries:

A GREAT RECKONING by Louise Penny (FOUR STARS)
“The lyrical 12th entry in bestseller Penny’s remarkable series, which has won multiple Agatha awards, finds former Chief Insp. Armand Gamache coming out of retirement to clean up the corrupt Süreté Academy du Québec. This complex novel deals with universal themes of compassion, weakness in the face of temptation, forgiveness, and the danger of falling into despair and cynicism over apparently insurmountable evils.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

Once again Penny displays her remarkable ability to serve equally well both series devotees and new readers (if there are any of those still to be found). Gamache fans will be thrilled by the way this installment unlocks some of the series’ enduring mysteries… At the same time, the main plot offers a compelling mystery and a rich human drama in which no character is either entirely good or evil, and each is capable of inspiring empathy.” Booklist, starred review

“A chilling story that’s also filled with hope—a beloved Penny trademark.”
Kirkus Reviews, starred review

This riveting read, with characters of incredible depth who only add to the strength of the plot, will keep readers guessing until the last page. For series fans and those who enjoy the small-town mysteries of Julia Spencer-Fleming.” Library Journal, starred review

THE ONE MAN by Andrew Gross (FOUR STARS)
“Bestseller Gross revisits the horrors of Auschwitz in this harrowing, thematically rich thriller… Alternating between scenes of American hope-against-hope optimism and Nazi brutality, Blum’s deadly odyssey into and out of this 20th-century hell drives toward a compelling celebration of the human will to survive, remember, and overcome.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

“This is Gross’ best work yet, with his heart and soul imprinted on every page.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“This is a genre departure for Gross, who was inspired by his Polish father-in-law to write a Holocaust espionage novel. While the Mendl plot is fictitious, the background and many characters are historically based, adding compassion and depth to a story that is as moving as it is gripping. A winner on all fronts.” — Booklist, starred review

“This is a first-rate tale from a real pro who here takes a different direction from his previous work.”Library Journal, starred review
