Happy #ThrillerThursday! Did you mystery junkies know about HitListReads.com? It’s a brand new website dedicated to thrillers, action, and suspense novels. On the site you’ll also find author interviews, free book contests, and read-alike recommendations.
The current Author of the Month is Olen Steinhauer, whose fabulous new book ALL THE OLD KNIVES has four starred pre-publication reviews, not to mention current raves, such as this one from the New York Times: “Mr. Steinhauer sustains the difficult balancing act of melding a heart-racing espionage plot with credible dinner table conversation.”
Also out this week is ASYLUM by Jeannette de Beauvoir: a chilling mystery set in Montreal, featuring amateur sleuth Martine Leduc and an investigation into the violent deaths of four women that are linked to a dark secret from the past. “The story alternates between the present-day investigation and the first-person story of one of the orphans, an approach that succeeds in giving the tragedy a human dimension. A complex and heartbreaking mystery.” — Booklist
