#ThrillerThursday (3/21/19)

Today’s #ThrillerThursday celebration features a cozy series-starter, the aftermath of a family tragedy, an eagerly-awaited sequel, a Bostonian bike courier, and a military thriller!

MURDER ONCE REMOVED: Ancestry Detective (Volume 1) by S. C. Perkins
“This debut features an intelligent genealogist detective, a strong supporting cast, some romantic tension, and information about Texas history that should appeal to readers of Rett MacPherson’s genealogy mysteries as well as cozy lovers who prefer a dash of history in their mysteries.”–Library Journal (starred review, Debut of the Month)

IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE by Jesse Blackadder
“Issues of trust, the burden of responsibility, and forgiveness are dealt with on an expert level. This is a masterpiece of women’s fiction, as the complexities and intricacies of both the characters and the situations are devastatingly and utterly realistic. The story is raw in its intimacy, grabbing hold of the readers’ heart, and not letting go.”–Booklist, starred review

REDEMPTION POINT: A Crimson Lake Novel by Candice Fox
“Fox, formerly one of James Patterson’s coauthors, builds tension and suffuses it with humanity in this compelling sequel, featuring a pair of protagonists readers will take to their hearts.”–Booklist, starred review

A TOWN CALLED MALICE by Adam Abramowitz
“A crafty plot and a nuanced look at gentrified Boston lifts Abramowitz’s impressive second mystery featuring bike messenger and would-be stand-up comic Zesty Meyers (after 2017’s BOSSTOWN).”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

TREASON by Rick Campbell
“Campbell has crafted a marvelous series that realistically portrays life in the military, in general, and on board a submarine, in particular. An involving ensemble cast more than supports the riveting premise in this fine military thriller. Campbell is definitely a comer in the genre.”–Booklist
