Thriller Thursday (5/22/14 Edition)

Thriller Thursday (5/22/14 Edition)

It's gray and gloomy here today—in other words, perfect weather to stay in this #ThrillerThursday and read these books:

BOOTY BONES by Carolyn Haines
In Haines's latest “entertaining” (Booklist) Southern mystery, Sarah Booth Delaney and her fiancé, Graf, are looking forward to their romantic vacation. That is, until Sarah's asked to look into the murder of a treasure hunter.

THE STRANGER YOU KNOW by Jane Casey
Secrets from Maeve Kerrigan's colleague DI Josh Derwent's past come back to haunt him—and their latest investigation—in Casey's newest thrilling book in the series. “...the Maeve Kerrigan series [are] all solid police procedurals with exceptionally well-drawn characters whose relationships continue to develop in each entry. Derwent, a brilliant copper in Maeve’s eyes despite his numerous personality defects, serves as a foil and balance for her, and, with him at the center here, this novel attains further complexity in the interplay of the police-force members. Prime crime fiction.” — Booklist, starred review 

RESISTANT by Michael Palmer
In his final book, New York Times bestselling author Michael Palmer brings his medical expertise to the forefront in a novel that brings our worst fears of hospital contamination to light. Can a doctor uncover the cure? “This exciting, fast-paced thriller culminates a successful writing career for Palmer, who, in October 2013, died unexpectedly at age 71. Palmer drew upon his own extensive expertise in emergency medicine for such best-selling novels as EXTREME MEASURES and THE FIRST PATIENT.” — Library Journal, starred review
