Here's your weekly dose of #ThrillerThursday:

BEHIND THE SHATTERED GLASS by Tasha Alexander
If you prefer your historical mysteries with a touch of Downton Abbey, check out BEHIND THE SHATTERED GLASS, the eighth book in the series starring the lovely sleuth Lady Emily Hargreaves. "Fans will enjoy the series return to Anglemore Park and its cast of characters. Newcomers will relish the upstairs-downstairs plotlines and Lady Emily’s particular talent at interrogation." — Library Journal

CROOKED NUMBERS by Tim O'Mara
Raymond Donne’s former student Douglas Lee had everything going for him thanks to a scholarship to an exclusive private school in Manhattan, but all of that falls apart when his body is found below the Williamsburg Bridge with a dozen knife wounds in it. Now Ray must draw on his past as a cop to find the truth. “O’Mara never hits a wrong note in his suspenseful sequel to Sacrifice Fly.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

RUNNER by Patrick Lee
Lee’s explosive new thriller series starring retired special forces operative Sam Dryden has sold international rights in seven countries and the film rights were optioned by Warner Brothers (our personal casting suggestion: Channing Tatum). Dryden lives a quiet life—that is, until a young girl literally running for her life crashes into him on a seaside boardwalk in the middle of the night. After helping to evade her pursuers, he learns that she escaped from a secret government prison and only knows her name, Rachel, and that she has a mysterious skill that makes her very dangerous. Steve Berry, Lisa Gardner, and Lee Child all love RUNNER, and Library Journal called it “a high-tech thriller that’s hard to put down.”
