It’s #thrillerthursday and we’re reading:


Doing the Devil’s Work
by Bill Loehfelm

“This series just keeps getting better.”–Kirkus (starred review)

“Loehfelm’s third crime novel featuring the marvelously complex New Orleans police officer Maureen Coughlin is every bit as good as its standout predecessors, and provides fresh evidence that Maureen merits a long literary life … The often lyrical prose will remind many of the grim, hard-edged style of James Ellroy.”–Publishers Weekly (starred review)

The Witch Hunter’s Tale by Sam Thomas

“Outstanding… The best to date.”–Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Thomas’s follow-up to The Harlot’s Tale does not disappoint. With authentic historical details and fascinating characters, this book will draw readers deep into the elaborate world of 17th-century England, midwives, and witch hunts.”–Library Journal (starred review)

Death of a Dishonorable Gentleman by Tessa Arlen

“Incorporating exquisite period detail into her well-mannered mystery, Arlen offers readers an engaging peek into the lives of upper and lower classes of early 1900s England.”–Library Journal

“Lively… Mystery fans eager for yet another look at the quasi-feudal system that prevailed in England before WWI will be most rewarded.”–Publishers Weekly
