We’ve got two historical thrillers to share with you this #ThrillerThursday, but first some terrific news: Peter James will be awarded the Diamond Dagger for lifetime achievement by the Crime Writers’ Association!
THE LAST DAWN by Joe Gannon
Nicaraguan police captain Ajax Montoya and his partner Gladys are tasked with finding a young American journalist who vanished in war-torn El Salvador. “The sequel to 2014’s NIGHT OF THE JAGUAR is just as hard-hitting and impossible to put down. This tough-talking thriller, certain to keep readers glued to their seats, is set against the civil war in El Salvador and offers an absolutely gripping mix of fiction and fact.” — Booklist, starred review
A PRISONER IN MALTA by Phillip DePoy
“Edgar-winner DePoy transforms playwright Christopher Marlowe into a swashbuckling action hero in this solid first in a new historical series. DePoy piles on the twists and introduces some humor into the tense story line, which should find favor with Susannah Gregory readers.” — Publishers Weekly
