The Werewolf and the Snowman
Two of last year’s best thrillers are available in paperback tomorrow, Tuesday, April 17.
Jo Nesbo’s sales are on an acutely upward trajectory and his bestselling, The Snowman, was a favorite among Northshire’s serious mystery readers last year. Sarah Knight thinks it’s “excellent and scary” which is precisely what one hopes for in a good thriller.
The Last Werewolf, by Glen Duncan, gained the admiration of our resident horror (and otherwise all-around) critic, Alden Graves. Said he, “Duncan’s unlikely meld of supernatural lore, raunchy explicitness, and existential tragedy makes for a uniquely entertaining read.” Even I, who rarely if ever ventures into anything that could be described as horror, voraciously turned the pages of Duncan’s spell-binding monster novel. It was raunchy indeed, not to mention literary and funny. (Look for the sequel, Talulla Rising, in late June!)
