Thriller Thursday (9/11/14 Edition)

Today’s #ThrillerThursday features two debut mysteries and two new thrillers from prolific veteran writers:

Former Nicaraguan Sandinista guerrilla comandante-turned-cop Ajax Montoya investigates a series of murders that appear to be political executions in this “impressive”* debut novel with “beautiful, emotion-drenched prose… The novel’s considerable power is in the author’s skill in making details sing.”

NINE DAYS by Minerva Koenig
Another superSTAR first novel! “Texas architect Koenig’s complex and intriguing suspense debut introduces ‘Julia Kalas’—the name the WITSEC program assigned her after neo-Nazis made her a widow. Fans of distinctive female characters like Nevada Barr’s Anna Pigeon and Becky Masterman’s Brigid Quinn will be thrilled to add Koenig to their ranks.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

VIRTUE FALLS by Christina Dodd
A chillingly suspenseful novel in which a young woman discovers the truth about the decades-old murder of her mother, and the killer who is still out there. “…red herrings galore and multiple third-person points of view will keep readers guessing whodunit right up to the end. For romantic suspense fans and those who enjoy tautly plotted page-turners.” — Library Journal

Gregor Demarkian plans to enjoy early retirement—that is, until his best friend on Cavanaugh Street, Father Tibor, is charged with murder. “In her fiendishly clever 29th Gregor Demarkian novel, Edgar-winner Haddam once again brings Agatha Christie’s magic tricks into the 21st century. The solution is both surprising and logical, demonstrating that Haddam has few peers at playing fair.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review
