Help! Teach me how to read in my sleep. I clearly need more time.
Here are 6 mystery/thrillers that were published this month that I still
haven't gotten to. Have you read any of them? Which one should be at
the top of my list? Any I should cross off?
Under the Harrow by Flynn Berry is a mystery set in England involving two sisters: one is found dead in the first chapter and the other must learn to cope with loss while trying to find out what happened. Many reviews mention the great tension. (Penguin Books) Missing, Presumed by Susie Steiner is suspense set in contemporary Cambridge (UK) and is centered around a missing student and the female detective in charge of finding her. (Random House) One of the characters in 738 Days by Stacey Kade suffers PTSD after having been held captive by a kidnapper for two years. The story is about her meeting the TV star whose poster kept her company until she escaped. But is she really free? This novel has won starred reviews. (Forge)
With Malice by Eileen Cook is about two privileged friends who take a trip to Italy. Only one returns: what happened to the other girl? Was it accident, murder, or something else? This one has gotten mixed reviews (HMH Books for Young Readers) The House of Secrets by Brad Meltzer and Tod Goldberg is a spy thriller involving amnesia, a daughter and father, and a possible history of violence. This is the first in a new series. (Grand Central) Lost and Gone Forever by Alex Grecian is the latest in the really good Scotland Yard's Murder Squad mystery series set in the 1890s. Jack the Ripper may play a part in this one. I highly recommend the other novels in the series. (Putnam)
