Thriller Thursday (2/6/14 Edition)

Happy #ThrillerThursday to these great new mysteries celebrating a #BookBday this week:
DOING HARM by Kelly Parsons
“As a medical thriller, this skillfully wrought debut gets high marks for building tension to a breathtaking climax." – Library Journal, starred review. Even TV star Joel McHale ("The Soup," "Community") loves it! 

WHO THINKS EVIL
by Michael Kurland
"This latest in Kurland’s novels about the notorious Professor Moriarty—Sherlock Holmes’ most clever adversary—makes for fun reading. Calling Moriarty the hero of these books might stretch the meaning of 'hero' a bit too far—he’s still the evil man we’ve always known him to be—but he’s a fine sleuth and sure makes for a compelling protagonist. Splendid stuff." – Booklist 
"This cozy historical is perfect for World War II buffs interested in the home front scene." – Library Journal
"Ballard infuses emotion and empathy into a very intelligent, believable mystery. Fans of Rhys Bowen may also appreciate this appealing and engagingly written series." – Booklist

Thriller Thursday (1/30/14 Edition)

You didn't really think we'd let a Thursday go by without sharing some of our favorite thrillers, did you?!

THE ORPHAN CHOIR by Sophie Hannah
Sophie Hannah writes taut, psychological suspense novels and her latest takes domestic horror to a new level when a woman is haunted by choral music only she can hear. “Absolutely haunting, in every sense of the word.” — Booklist, starred review

THE PAWNBROKER by Aimée and David Thurlo
In this new series, ex-special ops soldier Charlie Henry is settling into civilian life as the owner of the Three Balls pawnshop; that is, until his best friend is shot and puts Charlie on a mission to track down the killer. "...Hawaii 5-0 set in the Southwest should make for a popular series." – Library Journal

MORIARTY RETURNS A LETTER by Michael Robertson
In the next book in Robertson’s contemporary Baker Street mystery series, a desperate detective imitates Professor Moriarty to protect himself from a criminal and a century later, the lawyers answering mail at 221B Baker St. will pay. "You don’t have to be a Sherlockian to enjoy Robertson’s excellent fourth Baker Street mystery..." – Publishers Weekly, starred review

We Love the Ava Lee Mysteries

We Love the Ava Lee Mysteries

Today we’re thrilled to share with you Ian Hamilton’s mystery series starring Ava Lee, a forensic accountant who also happens to be a deadly martial artist with a taste for luxury and a mind like a steel trap. Yeah girl! 

Ava made her debut in THE DISCIPLE OF LAS VEGAS which Booklist called, "Slick, fast-moving escapism reminiscent of Ian Fleming, with more to come in what shapes up as a high-energy, high-concept series.” DISCIPLE was followed by another globetrotting follow-the-money adventure, THE WILD BEASTS OF WUHAN.

Now, Ava must rescue her family from gangsters and bankruptcy in the third book in the series, THE RED POLE OF MACAU (available Dec. 31), which is getting terrific reviews:

"Hamilton delivers a fantastic read once again. Recommended for mystery and crime thriller fans." Library Journal, starred review

"Asian locales and action increasing to a deadly climax add to the appeal...in Hamilton’s surefire series." – Booklist 

"Hamilton delivers colorful snapshots of Hong Kong and Macau, a well-paced plot, and a smart and capable heroine who’ll make you see accounting in a whole new light." – Kirkus Reviews

Can't get enough of Ava Lee? The fourth book in the series, THE WATER RAT OF WANCHAI is coming in May 2014, but the e-galley is available now. Get whitelisted and download your copy. [...]
