SAINT X by Alexis Schaitkin

A haunting portrait of grief, obsession, and the bond between two sisters never truly given the chance to know one another. “This killer debut is both a thriller with a vivid setting and an insightful study of race, class, and obsession.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Thriller Thursday (12/12/19)

Today’s #ThrillerThursday takes a Halloween night festival and throws in some murder, anonymous threats, an explosion, and a chilling investigation with SHATTER THE NIGHT by Emily Littlejohn.

A new addition to the series, Gemma Monroe, a small-town Colorado police detective, is back with even more murder to solve.

“Digging into the death of a friend threatens a police officer’s idyllic vision of her heroes…Littlejohn continues methodically building her heroine’s world, shifting from an almost supernatural-inflected focus to small-town secrets.”–Kirkus Reviews

“Cedar Valley, Colorado, is changing—mining operations have reopened in a nearby town, and the long-shuttered theater has been renovated and is building up to a performance of Macbeth. On Halloween night, the good times are brought to a halt when, shortly after Detective Gemma Monroe and her family call at his house, a judge is killed when his car explodes…Fans of Littlejohn’s mysteries (including LOST LAKE, 2018) will settle into this familiar blend of smart sleuthing and realistic portrayals of Monroe’s home life.”–Booklist
