Today’s #ThrillerThursday takes a Halloween night festival and throws in some murder, anonymous threats, an explosion, and a chilling investigation with SHATTER THE NIGHT by Emily Littlejohn.
A new addition to the series, Gemma Monroe, a small-town Colorado police detective, is back with even more murder to solve.
“Digging into the death of a friend threatens a police officer’s idyllic vision of her heroes…Littlejohn continues methodically building her heroine’s world, shifting from an almost supernatural-inflected focus to small-town secrets.”–Kirkus Reviews
“Cedar Valley, Colorado, is changing—mining operations have reopened in a nearby town, and the long-shuttered theater has been renovated and is building up to a performance of Macbeth. On Halloween night, the good times are brought to a halt when, shortly after Detective Gemma Monroe and her family call at his house, a judge is killed when his car explodes…Fans of Littlejohn’s mysteries (including LOST LAKE, 2018) will settle into this familiar blend of smart sleuthing and realistic portrayals of Monroe’s home life.”–Booklist
