Friday Reads: Minotaur Stars Edition

Friday Reads: Minotaur Stars Edition

TGIF friends! We're in Minotaur #FridayReads heaven with these three mysteries that have multiple starred pre-publication reviews!

THE WOLVERINE BROS. FREIGHT & STORAGE by Steve Ulfelder
As Conway Sax vows to avenge fellow AA member Eudora Spoon's murder, he gets increasingly caught up with family drama between her two sons.

“Action stoked, this complicated thriller-both for the character study and the murder plot-satisfies on many levels. The intense culture of AA and recovery is particularly well done. Pair with Robert Crais or Archer Mayor.”
Library Journal, starred review

“Stellar... Sax, a Spenser-like paladin more plausible than Robert B. Parker’s original Spenser, makes mistakes that are front and center and whose consequences resonate from book to book. Fans will be interested to see what effect this entry’s hard knocks on Sax’s soul have down the line.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review

THE DEVIL MAY CARE by David Housewright
The search for a suddenly missing man entangles unlicensed P.I. Rushmore McKenzie with one of the most powerful—and ruthless—local families.

“Exceptional... Wry humor helps balance the tension in this tale of misguided love and obsession.” Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Housewright not only delivers steadily growing suspense, but also provides a canny tour of the high and low life in and around the Twin Cities, including an unforgettable tour of the posh Lake Minnetonka. Housewright may be the best Minnesota Noir writer going.” Booklist, starred review

THE LATE SCHOLAR by Jill Paton Walsh
Lord Peter Wimsey and his detective novelist wife, Harriet Vane, return to uncover a disappearance related to a valuable manuscript at Oxford in Walsh's brilliant new continuation of Dorothy L. Sayers's classic mysteries.

“Walsh’s pitch-perfect re-creation of the charismatic leads is a delight. Sayers fans can only hope for more.”Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Delicious.” Booklist, starred review
