Thriller Thursday (7/31/14 Edition)

We’re wishing an early #ThrillerThursday to these mysteries coming out next week since Anne will be on vacation (reading a thriller, naturally):

CITY OF GHOSTS by Kelli Stanley
In award-winning author Stanley’s latest mystery, P.I. Miranda Corbie is searching for her long-lost mother, but along the way she must expose a Nazi spy and clear her name after being framed for murder. “It’s neonoir in a classical five-act structure, starring one of crime’s most arresting heroines.” — Library Journal, starred review on CITY OF SECRETS

DEAD LINE by Chris Ewan
In this fast-paced thriller from the acclaimed author of the Good Thief series, a highly trained hostage negotiation specialist will do anything to find out what happened to his missing fianceé. “This adrenaline-fueled, stand-alone thriller is more akin to Ewan’s SAFE HOUSE than to his Good Thief caper novels, with Daniel Trent a driven protagonist in the Jack Reacher mold. Readers will want to see more of Trent, and this page-turner, full of twists and turns, cries out for a sequel.”
Booklist, starred review

BOSTON MOB: The Rise and Fall of the New England Mob and Its Most Notorious Killer by Marc Songini
From information based on newly declassified documents and the use of underworld sources, BOSTON MOB tells the “sad, true, bloody story” (Kirkus Reviews) of psychopathic strongman Joseph “The Animal” Barboza—one of the most feared mob enforcers of all time, who killed as many as thirty people for business and pleasure.
