Sunday Salon: International Thrillers

 I've been finding some good thrillers on NetGalley and on Kindle Unlimited, so am bursting with ebooks to read. 

The Greek Island Killer (DI Jack Dawes #1)Man Down (Rogue, #2) (Skrapnel)Eyeshot

Eyeshot by Taylor Adams I gave a 4 out of 5 stars.  A young couple in the Mojave Desert fights a deadly sniper when they follow a false detour into an isolated area. 

Man Down by Irma Ventner, a thriller set in Mumbai and South Africa, was written in Africaans and translated to English. Ranna Abramson travels home to South Africa to help find an ex-lover and journalist who has disappeared.

The Greek Island Killer by Frances Lloyd is set on a tiny isolated island in Greece, where a group of tourists are trapped with a killer, who might be one of them. 

Audiobooks are a new interest, as I've not before wanted to listen rather than to read. 

All the Devils Are Here (Chief Inspector Armand Gamache, #16)

All the Devils Are Here by Louise Penney was borrowed from NetGalley audiobooks. I am enjoying  all the different voices of the characters in the book though it's read by the same person. 

This book is set in Paris, where Inspector Gamache and wife Renee are visiting their two married children and their families. Unfortunately, the reunion is scarred by the hit and run accident of one of their dearest friends, Gamache's godfather. There is a mystery here about the accident which might have been a murder attempt and the Gamaches are bent of finding out what happened.

What are you reading this week?

I read a couple of thrillers during this pandemic. They seemed to be good reads for me for this time. I hope it works out like that for you, too.

I've only lately become a fan of audiobooks. Anything set in Paris is a book I'll look twice at. I will be eager to see what you think of it.

Have a good week!

I keep telling myself that I should start the Louise Penney series but I would have so many books to read to catch up.. Daunting. My Sunday Salon post

I love to read a certain author's Greek Island Mystery series. This author is great. Her main sleuth is called the fat man. I had to look up the author's name. Her name is Anne Zouroudi. I would love to keep up with your International mystery/thriller series.
