Thriller Thursday – Detectives Edition!

Thriller Thursday – Detectives Edition!

The detectives in today's #ThrillerThursday round-up are smart, brave, and fearless. Good thing they're the good guys (and gals)! 

ENEMIES AT HOME by Lindsey Davis
In first-century Rome, a burglary that led to murder might now result in many more deaths—unless Flavia Albia can untangle the crime in time. “Diamond Dagger Award winner Davis vividly portrays the setting, 'a poisoned city, where a paranoid emperor had caused often-lethal mistrust,'...” — Publishers Weekly 

THE BAKLAVA CLUB by Jason Goodwin
In Goodwin’s final book in the Edgar Award–winning Inspector Yashim series, the eunuch detective must find a Polish prince kidnapped by three naïve Italian liberals, exiled in Istanbul. “Yashim's fifth, and reportedly final, case unfolds more like a picaresque caper than a whodunit, elegantly written and immersing the reader in exotic 19th-century Turkey.” — Kirkus Reviews 

LAND OF SHADOWS by Rachel Howzell Hall
L.A. homicide detective Elouise “Lou” Norton tries to connect a teen’s death with her own sister's murder 30 years ago. “A racially explosive Los Angeles provides the backdrop for this exceptional crime novel from Hall. Dead-on dialogue and atmospheric details help propel a tale full of tormenting moral issues. If the bad grow so close to the good, how do the cops weed them out? And how do we right all these wrongs? Lou, a brave lady in a brave book, does the best she can.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review  

NEVER LOOK BACK by Clare Donoghue
Detective Inspector Mike Lockyer searches for a London serial killer while struggling to maintain a relationship with his daughter, who matches the victim profile. “Donoghue keeps a tight rein on the plot, revealing what the reader needs to know a little at a time—and there’s a lot to know. This is a gutsy, gruesome, and compelling thriller that will appeal to fans of dark British police procedurals.”
