Thriller Thursday (11/19/15 Edition)

It’s a dreary, stormy day here in NYC—just the perfect weather for curling up with a good mystery!

“Readers know from the first page of this amazing novel that they’re in for a hard-boiled feast. A stunning achievement and a likely breakout book from a talented New Zealand author whose Auckland series has not received the attention it deserves in the U.S. Prepare for a burst of interest in this outstanding novel when the Warner Brothers film starring Bradley Cooper hits the big screen.”
Booklist, starred review

“Great dialogue and a hero who won’t stay hidden make this a winner for crime fans.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

IVORY by Tony Park
Alex Tremain is a pirate with a heart of gold embroiled in two separate and equally risky pursuits—one takes him to South Africa’s Kruger National Park and will pay enough for him to reopen his parents’ hotel, and the other involves the love of a lifetime. Can Alex pull off one last heist and walk away with both prizes? “The action here is crisp and nearly nonstop. A compelling tale filled with tension, blood, and a disturbing moral question: will humans stop killing Africa’s large animals before they become extinct?” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

AWAY IN A MANGER by Rhys Bowen
In this Christmas installment of Bowen’s New York Times bestselling historical mystery series, Molly Murphy Sullivan’s generosity to a beggar draws her into a dangerous investigation. “Full of historical details and holiday spirit, this makes an excellent Yuletide read.” — Library Journal
