Thriller Thursday (2/4/16 Edition)

Detectives and amateur sleuths abound in today’s #ThrillerThursday lineup:

SOUTH OF NOWHERE by Minerva Koenig
“This sophomore outing clearly demonstrates that Koenig’s acclaimed debut, NINE DAYS, was no fluke. Julie [Kalas] is an original heroine with a gutsy attitude and take-charge approach to life. Fans of Sue Grafton will welcome this hard-boiled protagonist.” — Library Journal, starred review

“The bodies keep piling up in this complicated tale, which offers enough mayhem, double-crossing, and general weirdness on the Tex-Mex border to last a lifetime.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review

THE LANGUAGE OF SECRETS by Ausma Zehanat Khan
Khan returns with another haunting mystery following detectives Esa Khattak and Rachel Getty as they investigate the murder of a federal agent who was deep undercover in a terrorist ring. “A heartfelt novel for lovers of crime fiction and anyone interested in the complexities of living as a Muslim in the West today.”
Library Journal, starred review

KEEP CALM by Mike Binder
When a bombing at 10 Downing Street wounds the Prime Minister and tests Great Britain’s resolve, American ex-cop Adam Tatum must confront a conspiracy in the highest halls of power. “Binder has produced an elegant thriller, with a plot that uncurls so effortlessly the reader is guyed along as easily as the hero. A thriller with resonance.” — Booklist

MYSTERY OF THE VENUS ISLAND FETISH by Tim Flannery
Young anthropologist Archie Meek (who is anything but) has a hunch that a ceremonial mask surrounded by 32 human skulls might be connected to the recent deaths of three museum curators. “This is a fun, intriguing mystery debut.”
Booklist

A VOICE FROM THE FIELD by Neal Griffin
In this gripping thriller about human trafficking, Detective Tia Suarez will stop at nothing to rescue the woman she saw bound and gagged in the back of a van and take down the group responsible. “A convincing hybrid of thriller, procedural, and midwestern noir.” — Booklist
