Another exciting Thursday for us here at KillerReads and the Harper Fiction Marketing team! We have some stellar titles releasing today, and you might just have stumbled upon your new read for the weekend. In no particular order (our books are our children–we love them equally!), here’s the run down of some heart-racing thrillers available now:
The Sandman by Lars Kepler
The fourth book in the Joona Linna series, but you can easily read it as a standalone. Plus The Sandman will leave you hungry for more so you’ll probably find yourself wanting to delve into Joona’s earlier adventures anyway. The No. 1 Swedish thriller by the author of The Hypnotist and The Fire Witness with over 1 million copies sold. We’ve currently got a GoodReads giveaway until the end of this month where you have the chance to win a copy!

The Invention of Fire by Bruce Holsinger
Fan of C. J. Sansom? You’ll love this. Set in the turbulent 14th century, this historical thriller written by an award-winning scholar of the Middle Ages is richly atmospheric – perfect for long, cold nights. With famous figures like Geoffrey Chaucer peppering its pages and the threat of an unknown new weapon rocking the London backstreets, The Invention of Fire is sure to keep you heart-racingly warm.
