Thriller Thursday (10/6/16 Edition)

Two LibraryReads picks, a Prohibition mystery, and Vera Stanhope returns in this week’s #ThrillerThursday picks:

ALL THE LITTLE LIARS by Charlaine Harris
An October 2016 LibraryReads pick! #1 New York Times bestseller Charlaine Harris returns to her Aurora Teagarden mystery series with a fabulous new book (the first in over a decade!) in which the small-town Southern librarian must find her half-brother and his three friends. “Harris weaves a complex tale of difficult family dynamics that highlights the horrors of being a teenager. Aurora, a smart and witty protagonist, possesses all the Southern charm necessary to carry this entertaining series.” — Publishers Weekly

THE MOTION OF PUPPETS by Keith Donohue
An October 2016 LibraryReads pick! This new horror novel from the bestselling author of the LibraryReads pick THE BOY WHO DREW MONSTERS (which has been optioned for film) is a chilling tale of romance and enchantment set in a Québec toy shop, patterned after the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. “Intricately plotted, absorbing, and suspenseful, this is a moving, modern story set in what feels like a fairy-tale world but is actually terrifyingly realistic.” — Booklist, starred review

THE MOTH CATCHER by Ann Cleeves
Cleeves makes a much-anticipated return with another investigation for her brilliant detective DCI Vera Stanhope, brought to life in the hit TV series Vera by Brenda Blethyn. “Nobody does eerie like Ann Cleeves in her immensely popular Vera Stanhope mysteries. The television series based on the Stanhope mysteries, hugely popular TV in the UK, is now available through Netflix or on DVD at one’s public library.” — Booklist, starred review

TEETOTALED by Maia Chance
In Maia Chance’s follow-up to her acclaimed Prohibition-era caper COME HELL OR HIGHBALL, Lola Woodby is hired to find a diary, but soon the diary owner’s future mother-in-law is murdered. “Lola and Berta may not be Holmes and Watson, but their deficits in experience and talent are balanced by determination and an abundance of action. P.G. Wodehouse fans will find a lot to like.” — Publishers Weekly
