Thriller Thursday & 2014 ThrillerFest Award Nominations!

Thriller Thursday & 2014 ThrillerFest Award Nominations!

Happy #ThrillerThursday! We've got three great mysteries AND fantastic news about ThrillerFest Award nominations!

THE AXE FACTOR by Colin Cotterill
An April 2014 LibraryReads pick! In Cotterill's third Jimm Juree mystery, the reporter's latest assignment is a profile of a writer who might also be a potential serial killer. “In addition to a clockwork plot and an intriguing setting, what really makes this book sing is Jimm’s own caustic, ribald observations. A stunner of a novel, third in the Jimm Juree series by the author of the acclaimed Dr. Siri novels.” — Booklist, starred review

DEAD PEOPLE by Ewart Hutton
In the next installment in this Welsh police procedural series, Detective Sergeant Glyn Capaldi finds several bodies at a remote site in the hills. His superior officers believe it's just a dumping ground, but Capaldi isn't convinced and sets out to learn who these dead people were and how they ended up there. “Fans of the cynical Scotsman John Rebus will find a lot to like in this hardworking Welsh outcast.” — Booklist  

BLOOD ALWAYS TELLS by Hilary Davidson
“In her new stand-alone thriller, Davidson introduces the reader to a cast of troubled, double-crossing characters who end up entangled in a dangerous game… you can’t help turning the pages in anticipation of yet another twist or turn. Recommended for mystery fans who appreciate quirky tales of revenge and family drama.” — Library Journal. Want to know more? Check out our feature.
