Thriller Thursday (10/29/15 Edition)

Get in the Halloween spirit with these new mysteries:

CORRUPTED by Lisa Scottoline
A November 2015 Indie Next pick! Bennie Rosato revisits her past when she represents Jason Leftavick, a former client she couldn’t free from juvenile detention after he finally stood up to a class bully. Now Jason’s an adult, accused of murdering the very same bully who first got him in hot water. “Both the juvenile case and the murder case are compelling on their own, but the combination and the glimpse into Bennie’s younger self make this a wonderful addition to an always-strong series. Scottoline is an A-lister all the way, and her Rosato series is always an A-plus in terms of reader interest.” — Booklist, starred review

WHAT YOU SEE by Hank Phillippi Ryan
Reporter Jane Ryland and detective Jake Brogan explore where their loyalties lie as Jane looks into a child abduction and Jake investigates a stabbing case that leads him to a dark conspiracy of extortion and stolen lives. “Ryan’s latest thriller is built like an intricate house of cards, threatening to crumble at any second. Mystery readers get ready: you will find yourself racing to the finish.” — Library Journal, starred review

THE CIRCLE by Bernard Minier
“Dolls float on the surface of a swimming pool. A young man dangles his legs in the water, seemingly oblivious to his surroundings. In the house adjoining the pool, a woman lies drowned in a large, old-fashioned bathtub… French author Minier’s second psychological whodunit featuring Commandant Martin Servaz shows his mastery of the creepy setup.The Russian nesting doll of a plot is perfectly executed and delivers two genuine gut punches at the end.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

A DEATH IN THE FAMILY by Michael Stanley
“This fifth mystery featuring Detective Kubu is another fast-moving procedural notable for its warm characterizations and vivid sense of place. A natural for fans of the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency.” — Booklist
