Thriller Thursday (8/14/14 Edition)

Murder, murder everywhere! Well, maybe just in this week’s #ThrillerThursday picks:

THE FROZEN DEAD by Bernard Minier
This suspenseful and “compelling” (Booklist, starred & boxed review) murder mystery set in a high-security asylum for the criminally insane and the snowy mountains of the French Pyrénées has two starred reviews and is one of Talia’s favorite Fall mysteries.

BEWARE BEWARE by Steph Cha
P.I. apprentice Juniper Song finds herself nose deep in a Hollywood murder scandal as she tracks a murderous screenwriter, uncovering blackmail and secrets along the way. “In her second outing, Korean Song defies the stereotype of the Asian American woman, working to overcome her background and what she suffered in Cha’s debut, FOLLOW HER HOME, and facing a formidable moral dilemma in the process. This is prime L.A. noir with a feminist slant.” — Booklist

A DISTANCE TO DEATH by Holly Menino
In the second Tink Elledge equestrian mystery (after MURDER, SHE RODE), Tink must solve a murder while navigating the steep twists and turns of the legendary Tevis endurance trail ride. “A stunningly riveting look into the world of endurance riding…[through] some truly startling riding scenes and Menino’s deep knowledge of horses and riding.” — Booklist

HALF IN LOVE WITH ARTFUL DEATH by Bill Crider
Sheriff Dan Rhodes returns for his 21st(!) mystery set in Backlin County, Texas, and this time, a vandal is wanted for murder. “Rhodes continues to maintain law, if not order, in Crider’s amiable mystery. Since Rhodes doesn’t have the crime fighting weapons shown on TV, he must get things done the old-fashioned way in this amusing tale.” — Publishers Weekly
