This #ThrillerThursday we’re reading two new series mysteries and a chilling true crime account involving the Coors brewery.
SLEEP LIKE A BABY by Charlaine Harris
In the next installment of the #1 New York Times bestselling and LibraryReads author Charlaine Harris’s Aurora Teagarden series, Roe has a newborn to care for, a vulnerable new marriage to nurture, and a new puzzle—who is this mystery woman dead in their backyard, and what happened to their home nurse, Virginia? “Engrossing… Harris smoothly weaves together several seemingly unrelated threads to create a richly layered tale of how the bad choices people make in life can come back to haunt them. ” — Publishers Weekly
TRACE by Archer Mayor
Two starred reviews for the newest book in the Joe Gunther series! “Outstanding… Mayor keeps the suspense high as he showcases each of his detectives’ special talents—Spinney’s patience and doggedness, Kunkle’s unorthodox but effective rule-bending, and Martens’s bravery and resourcefulness—in this welcome addition to the long-running series.” – Publishers Weekly, starred review
THE DEATH OF AN HEIR: Adolph Coors III and the Murder That Rocked an American Brewing Dynasty by Philip Jett
In 1960 the kidnapping of Adolph “Ad” Herman Joseph Coors III (of Coors brewery) set off the biggest manhunt in American criminal history since the Lindbergh kidnapping. “The author puts his legal experience to good use with behind-the-scenes insights into investigative legwork while crafting a suspenseful true-crime narrative that reads like an edge-of-the-seat detective story.” — Booklist
