Admin_99 Posted March 8, 2021 Share Posted March 8, 2021 Another week, another batch of books for your TBR pile. Happy reading, folks. * Laurie Flynn, The Girls Are All So Nice Here (Simon and Schuster) “A sharp, pitch-black thriller that takes the mean-girls trope to another level.” –Kirkus Donna Leon, Transient Desires (Atlantic Monthly Press) “Atmospheric . . . The action builds to a thrilling denouement involving coast guard boats and navy commandos.” –Publishers Weekly J.T. Ellison, Her Dark Lies (MIRA) “Mesmerizing…Fans of Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca will want to check out this compulsively readable tale.” –Publishers Weekly Kate Quinn, The Rose Code (William Morrow) “Quinn (The Huntress) returns to WWII in this immersive saga. [Her] page-turning narrative is enhanced by her richly drawn characters and by the fascinating code-breaking techniques, which come alive via Quinn’s extensive historical detail. This does not disappoint.” –Publishers Weekly Matt Miksa, 13 Days to Die (Crooked Lane) “A riveting international thriller…taut and full of action, twists and turns.” –NY Journal of Books Jess Montgomery, The Stills (Minotaur) “Like Sharyn McCrumb’s and Julia Keller’s thrillers, this third Lily Ross tale (following The Hollows, 2020) is a fine example of Appalachian storytelling, thoughtfully portraying characters at the intersections of kinship, poverty, power, and survival.” –Booklist Melissa Colasanti, Call Me Elizabeth Lark (Crooked Lane Books) “With a bone-chilling premise and heart-stopping revelations, Colasanti has penned a haunting psychological thriller that will linger with you long after the final page is turned.” –Heather Gudenkauf Dan Davies, Lying for Money: How Legendary Frauds Reveal the Workings of the World (Scribner) “Readers who like their true-crime stories laced with economics will enjoy these forays into the dark side.” –Kirkus Chip Jacobs, The Darkest Glare: A True Story of Murder, Blackmail, and Real Estate Greed in 1979 Los Angeles (Rare Bird Books) “The engrossingly bizarre tale of a murder plot within Los Angeles real estate circles…An entertaining true-crime period piece built around a chillingly odd sociopathic villain.” –Kirkus Reviews Harold Schechter, Maniac: The Bath School Disaster and the Birth of the Modern Mass Killer (Little A) “The minute-by-minute account of the event and the firsthand reports create a strong sense of place and time and bring this chilling story to life…a vivid narrative that’s sure to please those interested in historical true crime tales.” –Library Journal View the full article Quote Michael Neff Algonkian Producer New York Pitch Director Author, Development Exec, Editor We are the makers of novels, and we are the dreamers of dreams.
