Happy #ThrillerThursday, lovely librarians! First, some awards news: we have 6 nominees for the 2016 Macavity Awards!
LITTLE BLACK LIES by Sharon Bolton
Best First Mystery
THE UNQUIET DEAD by Ausma Zehanat Khan
Now for some new mysteries hitting shelves this month:
WIDOWMAKER by Paul Doiron
A June 2016 LibraryReads pick! In this riveting new novel from Edgar finalist Doiron, Game Warden Mike Bowditch is on the trail of a ruthless vigilante amid the snow-covered mountains of Maine. “The suspense is strong and the action is well rendered. WIDOWMAKER will go down well with armchair outdoorsfolk, especially fans of C. J. Box and Craig Johnson.” — Booklist
PRESSURE by Brian Keane
A free diver is called in to investigate a seismological event in the Indian Ocean when events take a deadly turn and she and her crew must fight the monsters in the depths and those ashore. “Don’t just suggest to horror readers—although Keene does include a few fun insider references for genre fans. This is a perfect beach read for fans of Michael Crichton, Mira Grant, or Preston and Child—if you dare to take this book anywhere near an open body of water.” — Booklist, starred review
THE DEVIL’S COLD DISH by Eleanor Kuhns
In the fifth book in the 1790s historical mystery series from MWA Award winner (and librarian!) Eleanor Kuhns, Will Rees’ small farm town begins to suspect his wife of murder by witchcraft. “The historical research is impeccable and the theme of religious persecution is highly relevant for today.” — Library Journal
SIDNEY CHAMBERS AND THE DANGERS OF TEMPTATION by James Runcie
The eagerly anticipated fifth installment in the Grantchester mystery series. “Fans of the books and the British-made PBS program the series has spawned won’t want to miss this one.” — Booklist
POLARIS by Todd Tucker
A man with amnesia who wakes up on a submarine in the middle of a mutiny, but he has no idea which side he’s on.
