A husband gone missing during a work trip to Lisbon + a retired mercenary caught in an embezzlement scheme + a body found behind a Jazz Age speakeasy + a town newcomer who is hiding a secret agenda of her own = this week’s thriller Thursday!
TWO NIGHTS IN LISBON BY CHRIS PAVONE
“Pavone has that special ability to construct plots that are artworks in their own right, marvels of architecture and intelligence. He’s at it again in this jaw-dropping thriller… Another jewel in an already-bedecked crown.”–Booklist, starred review
“Pavone skillfully layers plot details, often shifting points of view, all the way to the end of this superior, elegantly crafted yarn. The enigmatic central character, whose moral compass is set a bit differently than most, sets this above the pack.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review
THE GATEKEEPER BY JAMES BYRNE
“Though the author, who’s worked for decades in journalism and politics, has written this thriller under a pseudonym, it is clear that they know how to write a gripping and compelling story… Dez has a bright future ahead, and this one is a true keeper.”–Library Journal, starred review
“It’s hard to believe this is Byrne’s first novel: it’s so sure-handed, so cleverly written, so very difficult to put down… In a genre packed with burly, think-on-your-feet heroes, Dez is something new and fresh. He leaps off the page and into our imaginations.”–Booklist, starred review
LAST CALL AT THE NIGHTINGALE BY KATHARINE SCHELLMAN
“Schellman vividly evokes Jazz Age Manhattan as Vivian proves to be a most imaginative sleuth. Readers will eagerly await her return.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review
CAN’T LOOK AWAY BY CAROLA LOVERING
“Lovering unspools a taut, twisty, humdinger of a plot that encompasses the vagaries of true friendship as well as those of true love. A slow-burning literary tease that plumbs the heights and depths of young love, creative ambitions, friendship, and betrayal.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review
