Thriller Thursday (4/24/14 Edition)

Happy #ThrillerThursday! Here are the latest mysteries keeping us up well beyond bedtime:

In Calkins' next mystery with “rich, historical detail” (Publishers Weekly), chambermaid Lucy Campion must learn how a dead body discovered in the wreckage of the Great Fire of London actually perished.

DON'T EVER LOOK BACK by Daniel Friedman
In Friedman's “fine sequel and a must-buy!” (Library Journal), feisty octogenarian Buck Schatz has unfinished business from his past to take care of. “Edgar-finalist Friedman injects a darker tone into his alternately humorous and moving sequel to 2012’s DON'T EVER GET OLD. The howdunit of the 1965 crime will please Golden Age puzzle fans.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review 

THE POOR BOY'S GAME by Dennis Tafoya
A former U.S. Marshal's life turns upside down when the most dangerous criminal she's ever faced—her father—escapes from prison. “Tafoya delivers a gut-wrenching crime thriller as gritty and harsh as a Philadelphia winter. The equation seems simple, but Tafoya does a superb job keeping the reader guessing to the surprise end.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review  

THE FURIES by Mark Alpert
A shadowy clan with an ancient history has discovered a medical miracle—and will kill to keep it secret. “Alpert has a knack for making unbelievable things seem not only plausible but also completely real. Alpert’s carefully constructed alternate history of witchcraft—and sorcery, too—is very clever. Good stuff.” — Booklist 

A modern Indiana Jones steals a relic of Alexander the Great in this thrilling debut novel. “Two of my favorite topics—the lost tomb of Alexander the Great and Napoleon Bonaparte—joined in a rip-roaring, across-the-globe adventure. A superb debut by an exciting new voice in the thriller genre.” — New York Times bestselling author Steve Berry
