Top Crime & Thriller Out This Week.

First and foremost–hope you all are having a fantastic Valentine’s Day, whether you are spending it with loved ones or curled up with a book (or both!).

Tell Tale – Mark Sennen

If you’re looking for new read to pick up this weekend, we’ve had some great titles release this week. First up is Mark Sennen’s Tell Tale–the fourth instalment in his DI Charlotte Savage series. If you’re an avid watcher of Broadchurch, you’ll love these books. We also have a blog post straight from Mark himself going up tomorrow so check back here for that! Tell Tale is out now in paperback, but don’t worry ebook folks, we got you covered too.

YOU – Zoran Drvenkar

Also out just this Thursday is You. No, not you–YOU! Zoran Drvenkar is back again (sorry, did you not catch Sorry?) with another brilliant thriller. Drvenkar’s poetic writing style sings through the translation and we know you’ll be hooked within the first ten pages. Albeit ten pretty terrifying pages. And looks like HarperAudio currently has the first chapter of the audiobook up for free listen!

The Road to Samarcand – Patrick O’Brian

And what’s more thrilling than a good old tale of adventure? We’ve got a shiny new cover on Patrick O’Brian’s long out of print The Road to Samarcand (and it’s looking pretty swanky if we do say so ourselves). The New York Times lauds it as ‘The best historical novels ever written.’ So if that doesn’t spark your interest perhaps the prospect of its three exclusive three prequels to Derrick’s adventures on the high seas will.


Let us know if you pick up any of these and send us a picture on Twitter! You can find us there and on Facebook @KillerReads.
