April Thrillers

There are quite a few new thrillers coming out in April. I thought I would try to start with these and see if there any that might tempt you.

Mark Alpert gives us a thriller with a twist of fantasy in The Furies. Furies are human just like us, except for a rare genetic mutation that they’ve hidden from the rest of the world for hundreds of years. They might have been called witches in history. In the present day, John Rogers meets a beautiful woman named Ariel in a bar and is led into the middle of a secret war among the Furies. People seem to agree that it is more thriller than fantasy.

Notorious by Allison Brennan comes out in late March. This title starts a new series for Brennan featuring Maxine Revere, a cold-case investigative reporter. While attending a funeral of a friend who supposedly committed suicide, her friend's sister drags her into investigating the case and it pulls her into investigating another case of a murder at her old high school.

Nicci French has the newest Frieda Klein title in Waiting for Wednesday. By the way, did you know that Nicci French is actually two people? It is the writing team of Nicci Gerrard and Sean French, a married couple. This newest has Frieda with her practice on hold while she tries to recovers from the near fatal injuries she sustained in the last book. Frieda finds  her control slipping but becomes involved in a new case when her  niece demands her aunts help for a friend whose mother was brutally murdered in her own home.

Until You're Mine by Samantha Hayes has Claudia Morgan-Brown leading what appears to be a perfect life. Claudia, heavily pregnant, hires a nanny to help prepare her for the infant. Zoe came highly recommended but she makes Claudia nervous. When she find Zoe going through her personal things in her room, she becomes frightened.

Elizabeth Haynes has Under a Silent Moon coming out in April. In the early hours of an autumn morning, the police are called to investigate two deaths. The first is a suspected murder at a farm on the outskirts of a small village. A beautiful young woman has been found dead, her cottage drenched with blood. The second is a reported suicide at a nearby quarry. A car with a woman's body inside was found at the bottom of the pit. As DCI Louisa Smith and her team gather evidence, they discover a shocking link between the two cases and the two deaths. This may be the start of a new series by Haynes.

In a particular interesting one for me, Jenny Milchman gives us Ruin Falls. A rare family vacation quickly becomes a nightmare as Liz Daniels' children vanish from the hotel during the night. When her husband disappears later in the morning she discovers that he orchestrated their disappearance. The police will not get involved so Liz must figure out what happened on her own. 

OK - there are 6 titles to get you started on a busy spring publishing month.
