A LibraryReads Pick and a true crime investigation make up this week’s Thriller Thursday celebration!
MIRACLE CREEK by Angie Kim
“Intricate plotting and courtroom theatrics, combined with moving insight into parenting special needs children and the psychology of immigrants, make this book both a learning experience and a page-turner. Should be huge.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“With touches of mystery, legal thriller, and character-driven storytelling, where nothing is ever quite as it seems, Kim’s promising debut will certainly have readers looking forward to her next offering.”–Library Journal, starred review
THE LAZARUS FILES: A Cold Case Investigation by Matthew McGough
“In this engrossing true crime account, McGough, the author of a memoir, BAT BOY, and a former legal consultant for TV’s Law & Order, exposes a horrifying Los Angeles murder that was not solved for decades—and an even more disturbing LAPD cover-up… This memorable and powerful work deserves a wide readership.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review
