cats in snowOur winter woes continue: the wind is howling like a banshee on top of the Flatiron and North Carolina is buried in snow! Good thing we've got our mysteries to keep us company on this chilly #ThrillerThursday:


WHERE MONSTERS DWELL
by Jørgen Brekke

Two gruesome murders take place half a world apart in Virginia and Norway and are somehow connected to The Book of John—a journal bound in human skin written by a sixteenth century serial murderer from Norway. "The buildup to each murder is extraordinarily well done and almost unbearably suspenseful. On the whole, the novel lives up to the edginess of this genre. Brrrr." — Booklist

THE DEALER AND THE DEAD by Gerald Seymour
"A war crime propels this stellar thriller from Edgar-finalist Seymour. How Seymour develops these characters and manipulates them until they all end up in Vukovar is a testament to his talent and skill." Publishers Weekly, starred & boxed review  
"The Bosnian conflict was spectacularly cruel. Two decades on, it continues to spur headlines and to provide potent plotlines for novelists. It’s fitting that Seymour, one of the finest contemporary espionage novelists, shines his unique light on it." — Booklist, starred review   

MURDER IN THE AFTERNOON by Frances Brody
In Brody's newest Kate Shackleton novel, Kate must help a family find a man who's presumed dead after he went missing from the local stone quarry. "The bucolic setting of the village of Great Applewick and the period atmosphere add authentic touches to this finely drawn traditional mystery with multiple storylines." — Publishers Weekly, starred review
