Katherine's Favourite Crime Reads: April 2016

Imprints Booksellers - Friday, April 08, 2016

Katherine our very own Queen of Crime Fiction has done the heavy lifting for you this month and chosen her five favourite new thrillers. From a tangled web of conspiracy and intrigue in Tim Baker's Fever City to a brand new Bernie Gunther mystery with cameo by W. Somerset Maugham, these are the most enthralling new crime books for the month of April. 

 

Fire Damage by Kate Medina, Paperback, $29.99rrp

The first in an exciting new crime series featuring psychologist Dr Jessie Flynn a brilliantly complex character who struggles with a dark past of her own. Four-year-old Sami is deeply traumatised, and it's up to psychologist Dr Jessie Flynn to unlock his terrifying memories. She needs to find out who ‘the girl’ is – but nothing can prepare her for the truth about what haunts him.


 

Fever City by Tim Baker, Paperback, $29.99rrp

Nick Alston, a Los Angeles private investigator, is hired to find the kidnapped son of America's richest and most hated man. Hastings, a mob hitman in search of redemption, is also on the trail. But both men soon become ensnared by a sinister cabal that spreads from the White House all the way to Dealey Plaza. Decades later in Dallas, Alston's son stumbles across evidence from JFK conspiracy buffs that just might link his father to the shot heard round the world.


The Trap by Melanie Raabe, Paperback, $29.99rrp

Twelve years ago, Linda's sister Anna was murdered. Her killer was never caught, but Linda saw him. Now, all these years later, she's just seen him again on TV. He's become a well-known journalist, and Linda–a famous novelist and infamous recluse–knows no one will believe her if she accuses him. She does the only thing she can think of: she sets a trap, writing a thriller called Blood Sisters about the unsolved murder of a young woman. When Blood Sisters is published, Linda agrees to give just one media interview. At home. To the one person who knows more about the case than she does...

The Other Side of Silence - Bernie Gunther #11 by Philip Kerr, Paperback, $29.99rrp

The French Riviera, 1956. A world-weary Bernie Gunther is working under a false name as a hotel concierge. His attempts to keep his nose clean go horribly awry when a wartime acquaintance sucks him into a blackmail plot involving one of the most famous British writers of the 20th century, W. Somerset Maugham, and the Cambridge Spies and a mass murderer who, in 1945, was responsible for the deaths of thousands, among them a woman Bernie loved.



The Travelers by Chris Pavone, Paperback, $29.99rrp


Will Rhodes is an award-winning correspondent for The Travelers, on assignment at a luxury Argentinian resort, but his life is about to be turned upside down when a new flirtation turns into something far more dangerous. Turns out he's been targeted, he just doesn't know why. He doesn't know what these people truly want and how far into his life they will reach, to his friends and his colleagues, to his boss and his wife. He doesn't know that they will stop at nothing in their pursuit, and he doesn't know about the secrets he has already been keeping...
