In other words, Ms. Macmillan is one heck of a good writer. Scott Von Doviak. But the challenge is a worthy one, and the finished product is immensely enjoyable Von Doviak finds the appropriate tone for every occasion in this unpredictable novel, whose moods range from hard-boiled to slapstick to gothic.
Andrew Gross. Button Man has plenty of zip—and a lot of moxie, too. Robert J. His mission is to find an individual code-named Roland, who may have been captured by the Nazis. The can-do spirit of Mr. The Thirty-One Kings is old-fashioned in many ways—which is what makes it such a reassuring pleasure to read.
Robert Galbraith. Rowling—begins in the year Lethal White Robert Olen Butler. The alienated son of a famous stage actress, Cobb plays several roles in his life. Why the need to blur his identity? One of the pleasures of Mr. Paris in the Dark, with its ironic twists. Jefferson Parker. Positive The Wall Street Journal Roland Ford is a compelling hero: financially comfortable but not emotionally complacent, empathetic and equipped with the training and inclination to vanquish wickedness.
Martin Solares, Trans. Without losing sight of its central narrative, the book on occasion ascends into the realm of surrealism and the fever dream Maurizio de Giovanni, Trans. But he pines in silence for his young neighbor Enrica, who yearns to wed the discreet policeman but fears that she should instead marry the German military man courting her, even as that Nazi is being ensnared by the spying Livia.
These romantic, suspenseful and political strains interweave and resolve in superbly artful fashion. Tana French.
Olen Steinhauer. Where have they gone? What are they planning? The Middleman , with its abundance of multidimensional characters and political viewpoints, is a thought-provoking novel that never ceases to excite as a thriller. Anne Holt, Trans. There is also fascination in seeing Ms. Holt enter the minds of characters troubled and admirable alike—and of seeing the admittedly conceited Hanne grow less self-centered and more generous in her treatment of Henrik, who himself comes more into his own and even discovers the fulcrum on which the two deaths turn.
Emily Arsenault. Arsenault, in her earlier books, displayed impressive abilities and great charm. With this new work—its diverse supporting cast and mix of wry wit and psychological dread—she vaults to an even higher plateau of achievement. Intertwining strands of police-procedural and personal-confessional details set the reader up for one of the most surprising plot twists in recent memory.
J L Butler. But the client, Martin Joy, has a dark, aggressive side. But Fran has her doubts and her efforts to assist him Lawrence Osborne. The semi-exotic, lushly described Only to Sleep ends with a whimper, not a bang—which seems a fine way to leave an old fictional friend, taking at last a well-earned rest in the sun after having given readers decades of pleasure. The second part seems to meander, then erupts in an abundance of physical action. Malcolm Mackay.borrconscevi.tk
The Glenn Beck Program
Into this grim environment enters Martin Sivok, a year-old Czech hood-for-hire with a shaved head and a case of culture shock. He quickly teams up with a young Glasgow-born Pakistani, Usman Kassar. August Thomas. Thomas, an American who has studied in Turkey, does local color well and danger sequences even better.
What have we got? Dan Fesperman. Alice Blanchard. Mick Herron.
Herron cleverly spins the templates of the spy thriller, and his style can bite with the wit of an Evelyn Waugh or Kingsley Amis. Cara Black. To be determined.

Maria Hummel. Anthony Horowitz. Horowitz continues his imaginative literary gamesmanship in his witty and suspenseful new work The Word Is Murder , with its dry tone and insider anecdotes about publishing and the movie business, is certainly one of the most entertaining mysteries of the year. And: Is the pencil truly mightier than the butcher knife? Positive The Wall Street Journal The Good Son who is anything but is not so much a mystery story, then, as the case study of a psychopath, an unlikely thriller that we continue to read—thanks to Ms.
While CIA agent Jenna, with her seductive allure and her hand-to-hand combat skills, comes close at times to seeming like a female James Bond, Star of the North is saved from caricature by passages of the grimmest realism and welcome bursts of humanism and hope. Ruth Ware. And at the end of Ms. The truth. Fuminori Nakamura, Trans. Cult X , translated into handsome, unadorned English by Kalau Almony, pushes the boundaries of the thriller genre to an extreme degree. Nakamura has written a daunting, challenging saga of good and evil on a Dostoevskian scale.
Those who persevere to its finale may well feel the richer for it. Jacqueline Winspear. The wartime details sandbags in front of shop fronts, blackout curtains, ambulance-driving classes transport us with ease to a milieu where danger is omnipresent but—thanks to the presence of steadfast figures like Dobbs and her like-spirited colleagues—so is hope. Kirk Wallace Johnson.

But in Mr. Christine Mangan. Mangan makes good use of her arid locale—which is oppressive for Alice but inspiring to Lucy But caveat lector : Tangerine , like its namesake fruit, can be both bracing and bitter.

Bohjalian twists the tension tight and keeps the surprises startling. But Cassie in peril, like Cassie pre-Dubai, refuses to toe the line, ignoring the advice and disobeying the instructions of those trying to help. Walter Mosley. Herron cleverly employs the tropes of spy fiction to construct a frightening psychological puzzle. He then transforms the conundrum into yet another unexpected story, one that leaves the reader hoping for a resolution that may or may not materialize.
Perry, in this first-rate thriller, proves as cagy as his criminal mastermind: The reader rarely anticipates his next move. Melissa del Bosque. In Bloodlines , the author gives us both the engrossing drama of a police procedural — from seeming dead ends to panic-stricken emergencies — and a scrupulous journalistic account of a significant episode in the drug wars.
David Ignatius. The Andalucian Friend has a populous international cast of shady Swedish cops, vicious Spanish, German and Russian crooks, and the 'ordinary' citizens caught in between But are they taking place in the same time frame?
And what might they have to do with each other, if anything at all? The reader follows a rich cast of villains and heroes through a multistate, bullet-riddled adventure involving street crime, turf wars and human trafficking, but in due course Mr. Ide provides plenty of satisfying answers—and in a satisfyingly clever fashion.
