Super Star Thrillers

We know that #ThrillerThursday is tomorrow, but we can’t wait to tell you about these forthcoming mysteries that all have multiple starred reviews:

EVERY FIFTEEN MINUTES by Lisa Scottoline – THREE stars! 
The head of a hospital psychiatric unit’s life begins to unravel when he has to field a sexual harassment claim and is implicated in the murder of a young woman, impacting his custody battle for his daughter.

[An] exciting page-turner. Once the red herrings are dispatched, the identity of the culprit who plots his downfall is a genuine surprise.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Occasional chapters from the killer’s viewpoint seem to lead the reader toward an obvious conclusion, but Scottoline has plenty of tricks up her sleeve. EVERY FIFTEEN MINUTES is a standalone, but it won’t disappoint fans of her popular Rosato & Associates series and may well attract new readers.”
Booklist, starred review

“In a nail-biting stand-alone with two heart-pounding climaxes and several pulse-racing twists, Scottoline grabs her readers by the jugular and won’t let go. Readers who crave an action-packed psychological thriller should add it to their wish lists.”
Library Journal, starred review

THE HIDDEN MAN by Robin Blake
“Set in 1742, British author Blake’s superior third whodunit featuring Dr. Luke Fidelis and coroner Titus Cragg centers on an impossible crime. The sleuths are an entertaining duo, and Blake again couples skillful plotting with authentic period details.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Blake brings Georgian England to vivid life in his mysteries. This is both an engaging mystery and a revealing window into Georgian England.”

Edgar-winner DeSilva’s excellent fourth Liam Mulligan novel finds the Providence, RI investigative journalist pursuing the truth behind a series of murders that appear linked to the governor, colorfully known as “Attila the Nun,” who hopes to solve the state’s public-pension crisis by legalizing sports gambling.

DeSilva’s Edgar and Macavity Award-winning books is a consistently well-written hard-boiled series. Still, this excellent addition features a bit of romance, a lot of action, plenty of snappy repartee, and social commentary on the fate of newspaper journalism and the corrupting role of money in the political process. Quality all the way.” — Library Journal, starred review

“The lean prose and clever plotting will remind hard-boiled fans of Loren Estleman’s Amos Walker novels.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review
