Winter thrillers, mysteries and suspense

By Sherry Mohan-Neves

Port Jervis Free Library

New Fiction:

“Robert B. Parker’s Bye Bye Baby, a Spenser Novel” by Ace Atkins. The tenth Atkins novel inspired by Parker, the late crime fiction master. “In this newest thriller featuring the legendary Boston private investigator, Spenser takes on a group of extremists to protect a congresswoman in danger.”

“Fear No Evil, an Alex Cross Thriller” by James Patterson. “Dr. Alex Cross and Detective John Sampson venture into the rugged Montana wilderness – where they will be the prey.”

“A Flicker in the Dark” by Stacy Willingham. “Don’t trust anyone in this wickedly good debut [novel]… A twisty and propulsive thriller.”

“The Last House on the Street” by Diane Chamberlain. “A community’s past sins rise to the surface…when two women, a generation apart, find themselves bound by tragedy and an unsolved, decades-old mystery.”

Yonder” by Jabari Asim. “A splendid addition to the library of fiction on American slavery.” [Using] “a grand way with language,” Asim “reveals the slaves’ everyday world away from the lash and brutality: the loves, the laughter, the age-old tussles with life.”

“Find Me” by Alafair Burke. “She calls herself Hope Miller, but she has no idea who she really is. Fifteen years ago, she was found in a small New Jersey town thrown from an overturned vehicle, with no clue to her identity.” “A page-turner of the highest order.”

“One Step Too Far” by Lisa Gardner. “Master storyteller and avid hiker, Lisa Gardner has written…an immersive, propulsive, utterly chilling, and yet deeply moving wilderness thriller in which her intimate knowledge of and love for the rugged Wyoming backcountry shines through on every terrifying page.”
