March is truly international with thrillers that move through New York, Paris, Belfast, Croatia, Swedish Lapland and more! I updated the Win Books page with some terrific books. This month there is a mix of NY Times bestsellers, the latest in some of my favorite series, and a debut.
The Patriot Threat is the latest Cotton Malone novel by New York Times bestselling author Steve Berry and offers a tantalizing premise; what if the Federal income tax is illegal? Full Tilt by Rick Mofina is a chilling thriller about a manhunt for a killer who’s kept a collection of victims prisoner for years without detection and is sure to be an all night read. A woman looking for love online is entangled in a killer’s terrifying scheme in The Black Widow by Wendy Corsi Staub.
Several new historical thrillers are offered, starting with David Morrell’s latest Thomas De Quincey novel, Inspector of the Dead, set during the Crimean War, with Queen Victoria the target of a killer. M.J. Rose brings us the latest in her brilliant Daughters of La Lune series, The Witch of Painted Sorrows, a gothic novel set against the lavish spectacle of 1890s Belle Époque Paris. Too Bad to Die by Francine Mathews is a tense and enthralling historical thriller in which British Naval Intelligence officer Ian Fleming attempts to foil a Nazi plot to assassinate FDR, Churchill, and Stalin.
Adrian McKinty brings back series favorite Belfast Detective Sean Duffy, who is struggling with burn-out as he investigates a brutal double murder and suicide in Gun Street Girl. Doug Wynne’s latest, Red Equinox, is an homage to Lovecraft, and the Lovecraft eZine says, “No Lovecraft fan–or horror fan for that matter–should miss this one.”
Finally, the debut novel Wolf Winter by Cecilia Ekback is another historical thriller, set in Swedish Lapland in 1717, when the harshest winter in memory, the “wolf winter,” leaves settlers struggling to survive living in the shadow of a mountain with a dark history.
