Catch this one for a great read!

 I'm a long time fan of Lisa Gardner and her recurring character, Boston PD Detective D.D. Warren, is a favourite. Gardner's latest book featuring D.D.

No - it's not about donuts....

Boston Cream is Howard Shrier's third novel featuring PI Jonah Geller, but a first read of this Arthur Ellis award winning Canadian author for me. It definitely won't be the last.

No holds barred, gritty read

 Okay, it was the tag line on the cover of The Dispatcher that grabbed me first....

"The phone rings. It's your daughter. She's been dead for four months."

....and the story held me gripped until the last page.

Ian Hunt is a police dispatcher in a small town in Texas.

Jack Reacher fans - have you met Joe Pike yet?

 

I am always so excited when Robert Crais releases a new book - I just know I'm in for a night of great reading. Yes, a night - because once I start, I can't stop until I turn the last page. Crais' latest book - Taken - was no exception!

Dark and devious plotting....

 

Have you read or heard of Mo Hayder? Well, if you're a thriller/mystery/crime addict, you'll want to look her up.

Great new character from Brad Smith

 I've added Brad Smith's previous books to my Canadian authors displays at the library in the past, but I admit I hadn't read this author until I picked up his new release  - Red Mean

Fantastic plot line!

cover image Roslund and Hellström's novel, Three Seconds, hit bestseller lists in their native Sweden and in the US.

Loved it!

 

Ami McKay's first novel The Birth House was a phenomenal success. I have no doubt that her  newly released second novel - The Virgin Cure - will also be a bestseller.

If you like locked room mysteries...

I had never heard of Anne Holt  before - she's described as Norway's #1 bestselling crime writer. After finishing her latest book 1222, I can see why.

Fantastic read - and he's Canadian!

Comfy chair? Drinks? Snacks? Good lighting? Excellent! 'Cause you're not going to be getting up or stopping once you dive into Linwood Barclay's latest release - The Accident.
