Thriller Thursday (11/5/15 Edition)

Happy #ThrillerThursday to these new mysteries & thrillers hitting the shelves this week:

A Maximum Shelf Awareness selection! Cramped, claustrophobic, and under strict command, the confines of naval submarine HMS Tenacity are unwelcoming in the best of circumstances. For Lieutenant Danielle “Dan” Lewis, the only female aboard, who must methodically interrogate a tightknit and hostile crew about a suicide and a murder, it’s her own special place in hell. “The unusual setting, skilled writing, and obvious veracity make this a bold first effort worth awaiting a second.” — Library Journal

MADE TO KILL by Adam Christopher
“The action, plot, dialogue, and characters are straight out of Chandler, while the science-fiction elements are reminiscent of the very best of that genre from the 1940s and ’50s (think Philip K. Dick and Robert Heinlein). This first in the L.A. trilogy is a fun, fast read for anyone willing to take the speculative leap—a must-add for most fiction collections.” — Booklist, starred review

In this series debut, Sunny McKillip lands in Texas-sized trouble caring for Miss Ruffles, the small dog who inherited a large fortune when her owner was murdered. “The prairie wind brings a welcome change for Martin, author of the ultra-arch Philadelphia-based Blackbird sisters mysteries, promising a series with real heart in the craziest small town since Maggody, Arkansas.” — Kirkus Reviews

YAPPY HOUR by Diana Orgain
“Orgain adds another fun dog mystery to the popular subgenre, but this one comes with a twist: an amateur detective who doesn’t like dogs. Both pet- and food-mystery fans may enjoy this fresh new series, complete with dog-themed cocktail recipes.” — Booklist

THE CLOUD COLLECTOR by Brian Freemantle
The acclaimed spy novelist turns his attention to cyber warfare in this “realistic” (Publishers Weekly) thriller in which government hackers must follow an elusive electronic trail to stop a global terrorist plot.
