Thriller Thursday (11/19/20)

We’re solving mysteries in today’s thriller Thursday round-up, with one woman tracking a monster and searching for treasures, an English native undercover in San Francisco, a former FBI agent with a surprising murder, and a collection of novellas all centered around one mystery in a Japanese police station.

THE SILVER SHOOTER: A Rose Gallagher Mystery by Erin Lindsey

“In Lindsey’s exceptional third Rose Gallagher mystery, set in 1887, Theodore Roosevelt once again turns for help to Rose, who saved his life twice in 2019’s A GOLDEN GRAVE… Lindsey keeps the suspense at a high pitch throughout. Fans of Preston and Child’s Pendergast series will be enthralled.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

THE MAN IN THE MICROWAVE OVEN by Susan Cox

“The follow-up to Cox’s award-winning THE MAN ON THE WASHING MACHINE includes a delightful amateur sleuth and eccentric characters with appeal for fans of traditional mysteries. The intricate plotting will keep readers guessing.”–Library Journal, starred review

ONE OF OUR OWN: A Gregor Demarkian Novel by Jane Haddam

“The excellent 30th and final series whodunit from Edgar winner Haddam (1951–2019) featuring the brilliant but all too human Gregor Demarkian, who frequently consults for the Philadelphia PD, finds him still dealing with the fallout from 2014’s FIGHTING CHANCE… As always, Haddam cleverly integrates political issues such as illegal immigration and affordable housing into an intricate and gripping plot. This is a fitting coda to the career of one of America’s best contemporary fair play authors.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

PREFECTURE D: Four Novellas by Hideo Yokoyama

“Yokoyama knows his way around a police station, as these linked novellas, reminiscent of Janwillem van de Wetering’s Amsterdam Cops series, suggest… There’s more politics than mayhem here, but fans of hard-boiled fiction will enjoy seeing how Japanese cop shops work.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review
