I’ve enjoyed Griffin over the years and was excited to see a new series by her. Hidden is the first novel in the Texas Murder Files. We get to meet a tenacious report, and a police detective who won’t rest until they stop a killer.
Summer is the perfect time to listen to a murder-mystery. The Bone Jar by S.W. Kane delivers an intense murder-mystery thriller. It’s the first in the Detective Lew Kirby series. Grab an iced-coffee and discover the secrets of Blackwater Asylum.
For me summertime screams psychological thrillers and mysteries. The Girl from Widow Hill by Megan Miranda was the perfect fix. Miranda delivered a suspense, twisted and clever-murder mystery.
The Business of Blood by Kerrigan Byrne takes us to 1890, London, where the business of murder is booming. Grab a cuppa and meet feisty, determined Fiona Mahoney but prepare for trouble….
I was immediately intrigued by the synopsis of Eight Perfect Murders by Peter Swanson and grabbed the audiobook narrated by Graham Halstead. A book store owners blog post, appears to be the manifesto for a serial killer.
Alone in the Wild by Kelley Armstrong is the fifth novel in the Casey Duncan series set in Rockton, Alaska, a remote village cut off from civilization. Twists, complex characters, the wild landscape of the Yukon and an intense case will keep readers flipping the pages.
I didn’t realize when the cover and synopsis pulled me in to The Janes by Louisa Luna, that this was book two in the Alice Vega series. Gritty, dark, with moments of humor Luna delivered a suspenseful crime thriller that could easily have been pulled from today’s headlines.
I am always looking for something a little different when I make my selections for the HoHoHo Readathon. Some years I slip in a horror but this year, Shamus Dust by Janet Roger crossed my desk. A murder-mystery that begins in the wee hours of Christmas morning.
