Whether you love historical mysteries or modern day gangsters, today’s #ThrillerThursday picks are just what you want:

THE DRAGON OF HANDALE by Cassandra Clark
In the “outstanding”* fifth historical mystery in the Abbess of Meaux series, Hildegard returns home to London and is considering rejoining the Order when she discovers the body of a young man ravaged by an animal larger than anything known in nature. Is it possible that the young man was killed by a dragon, as Hildegard’s been told? “Clark pulls everything together neatly in a moody, atmospheric whodunit while sustaining a high level of tension throughout.”
Publishers Weekly*

In Glinski’s debut mob-fueled thriller, an aging Polish crime boss in Philadelphia will do whatever it takes to stop the Italians from stealing his turf. “Glinski vividly portrays the seamy side of Philadelphia, while providing absorbing backstories for all the major characters. As the battle wages, the action sweeps the reader along toward the satisfying climax.” — Publishers Weekly
