Thriller Thursday (1/14/16 Edition)

Our first #ThrillerThursday titles of the new year ALL have *starred reviews* and major accolades:

ONCE A CROOKED MAN by David McCallum
“David McCallum — yes, actor David McCallum of ‘The Man from U.N.C.L.E.’ and ‘NCIS’ fame — confidently embarks on a second career in his highly entertaining debut that mixes the espionage novel with the mystery thriller. While occasional bits of humor add levity to the plot, McCallum keeps a near hard-boiled edge to the story. It seems McCallum had a lot of fun writing ONCE A CROOKED MAN, as will his readers devouring his energetic novel.” — Associated Press

VAGABOND by Gerald Seymour
A legendary spy handler is called out of retirement for the most dangerous and high-stakes operation of his career. “British spymaster Seymour delivers another first-rate effort—this one focused on an old-fashioned hero facing up to new challenges.”Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“Seymour’s legion of fans will love VAGABOND.” — Booklist, starred review

EVEN THE DEAD by Benjamin Black
Solving a case has a profound effect on pathologist Quirke in this Dublin-set thriller. “Black fashions a meticulously written installment notable for its palpable sense of place, a slate of fully drawn characters, and a meaningful denouement.”
Kirkus Reviews, starred review
