Thriller Thursday & CWA Dagger Nomininations!

Happy #ThrillerThursday! We’ve got two terrific mysteries AND great news about CWA Dagger Award nominations!

FALL OF NIGHT by Jonathan Maberry
“Maberry does some of his best writing in this sequel to 2011’s DEAD OF NIGHT. Maberry, no slouch when it comes to action and suspense, seems to have found new energy here, as though he’s been jump-started by the story he’s telling. He still has a lot of books ahead of him, so calling this his masterpiece would be premature, but a case could be made that this is the best—and most terrifying—book he’s written so far.” — Booklist, starred review

DE POTTER’S GRAND TOUR by Joanna Scott
In 1905, a tourist agent and amateur antiques collector named Armand de Potter mysteriously disappeared off the coast of Greece. When his wife is left to piece together his life, she realizes that everything was not as it seemed. “Ardently researched and sporting historic de Potter photographs, this smart, brisk, witty, and provocative novel is alight with vivid descriptions of the de Potters’ travels, and electric with Agatha Christie–like suspense.” — Booklist
