A Thousand Cuts by Thomas Mogford

“Richly atmospheric… Throughout the series, Mogford has explored the multicultural tensions that define contemporary Gibraltar, and this time he ups the ante by adding a fascinating historical layer to that ambiguity-drenched cultural stew. Sanguinetti, naturally, feels caught in the middle as the riptide of present and past threaten to engulf him and those he loves. An essential international crime series.”–Booklist

“A high-grade thriller strong on character, police procedure, and page-flipping tension.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Paradise Valley by C.J. Box

“The intrepid, appealing Cassie relies on her keen investigative instincts to hone in on Pergram in this top-notch thriller, which makes vivid use of the American West.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

Let the Dead Speak by Jane Casey

“These character-driven Kerrigan mysteries are among the genre’s finest, and the last page here is likely to leave readers breathless and longing for Casey’s next.”–Booklist, starred review

“Compelling… The intricate plot unfolds naturally, as Casey never lets readers stray from Kerrigan’s point of view, so that they feel as if they are figuring it all out with her in this increasingly dark and tragic story.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

Penance of the Damned by Peter Tremayne

“Those who enjoy a rich historical setting, wish to learn more about ancient Ireland, and relish a perplexing puzzle will be well rewarded.”–Library Journal
