DARK ROADS by Chevy Stevens

A LibraryReads pick!

“Recommended for all fans of psychological thrillers. The menace and suspense are heightened by the wilderness setting, a recent trend.”–Booklist

GONE FOR GOOD by Joanna Schaffhausen

2 starred reviews!

“Excellent fair-play plotting, genuine surprises, and convincing characters make this a surefire winner.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

“In this strong series debut, though, these multiple story lines provide layers to a heroine who sacrifices everything she loves in pursuit of justice, emerging with an optimistic eye toward what comes next.”–Booklist, starred review

THE DARKNESS KNOWS by Arnaldur Indridason

“At the start of Indridason’s superb sequel to 2017’s THE SHADOW DISTRICT, a melting glacier reveals the body of Reykjavík businessman Sigurvin, who has been missing for 30 years… As in the old Icelandic sagas, the author strips bare such archetypal human concerns as revenge, honor, and family loyalty. Konrád, who still misses his beloved wife six years after she died of cancer, is an irresistible lead. Indridason is writing at the top of his game.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

THE ELIMINATION THREAT by Michael Laurence

“The complex plot involves a conspiracy related to petrodollars, the U.S. national debt, and a Russian plan to destroy the economies of Western nations.”–Publishers Weekly

THE ISLAND by Ben Coes

“Iranian Zakaria Mansour, the ‘commander general of Hezbollah,’ has an ambitious plan: to assassinate the U.S. president during a speech at the United Nations, slaughter thousands in the New York City streets, and electronically destroy the Federal Reserve.”–Publishers Weekly
