PAYOFF by Douglas Corleone
U.S. Marshal Simon Fisk is back in a second “pedal-to-the-metal thriller”* where he must venture to South America to get a Hollywood mogul’s kidnapped daughter back. “Like GOOD AS GONE, the novel accelerates to high speed almost immediately and doesn’t slow down until the book is finished. Another winner.”
GUN METAL HEART by Dana Haynes
Freelance operative Daria Gibron was injured on her last case, but she cuts her recovery short after an old colleague needs her help evading a dangerous Serbian mercenary group. “In her fourth adventure, former Shin-Bet operative Daria reads even more like the twenty-first century’s 007 as she punctuates breathless action with sharp wit, inventive strategy, and fashion commentary. A fine entry in a series that’s espionage at its most fun.” — Booklist
STRANGE SHORES by Arnaldur Indridason
Indridason’s beloved Inspector Erlendur returns to hunt for a missing woman who disappeared from the frozen fjords of Iceland, as well as his long-lost brother, whose disappearance in a snowstorm when they were children has colored his entire life. “Having been absent in Indridason’s previous two mysteries, Erlendur’s return will thrill fans. While series veterans get more insight on Bergur’s disappearance, no knowledge of the backstory is required for full enjoyment of this satisfying mystery.” — Library Journal
