#ThrillerThursday (5/9/19)

From a series prequel (now on PBS!) to dogs with jobs–welcome to this week’s Thriller Thursday!

THE ROAD TO GRANTCHESTER by James Runcie

“Runcie’s exceptional seventh novel featuring Sidney Chambers (after 2017’s SIDNEY CHAMBERS AND THE PERSISTENCE OF LOVE), a prequel, opens with an extended section set during WWII… While Sidney has only one passing mystery to solve, fans of Runcie’s sophisticated mixing of whodunit plots with explorations of the human psyche in prior entries will relish getting a fuller picture of Sidney’s path toward a life in the church.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

THE SCENT OF MURDER by Kylie Logan

“Logan makes a confident stride from cozies into a harder edge story with this solid series launch. Believable characters, crisp dialogue, and an insider’s view of Cleveland’s energetic arts and restaurant scenes enhance the mystery. Readers will hope to see a lot more of Jazz and Luther.”—Publishers Weekly

#ThrillerThursday Excerpt from THE VANISHING MAN

Charles Finch has long captivated readers with his gentleman sleuth Charles Lenox series

Now in THE VANISHING MAN–the second in a prequel trilogy following THE WOMAN IN THE WATER–a young Charles Lenox is caught up in the case of a missing painting–a mystery with deeper secrets and wider consequences than he realized.

Read an exclusive excerpt from THE VANISHING MAN here!

Advance praise for THE VANISHING MAN:
“Fans of the series, which set the earlier Lenox novels in the 1860s, will know what’s coming in the detective’s personal and professional life, but that in no way decreases the pleasure of this account of his earlier life. Finch’s nimble prose, edged with humor, makes this twelfth in the Charles Lenox series a pure delight.”Booklist, starred review
