It’s the end of February, so now is the perfect time to abandon the hope that Spring will ever come and curl up with a terrifying tale. Kobo agrees, which is why they’ve put Chilly Thrillers on sale until Monday 2/29! We’re thrilled that titles by both Louis Charbonneau and Edo van Belkom are featured at $2.99.
In Louis Charbonneau’s books, STALK, THE DEVIL’S MENAGERIE, and NIGHT OF VIOLENCE, an ex-CIA agent must evade the mafia, an FBI agent races against time to catch a serial killer hunting young women, and a low-level mobster tries to survive a night in the hotel from hell. All three have plenty of chills, with fast-pacing and nail-biting climaxes. Publishers Weekly said STALK has “believable characters and action aplenty.” THE DEVIL’S MENAGERIE is full of “nonstop suspense…this book is difficult to put down” (Library Journal). We’re also huge fans of the appropriately gruesome, cool, and modern cover art!
In Edo van Belkom’s TEETH, a detective must solve a series of murders by castration, while in MARTYRS, a Jesuit professor fights to save his students from an ancient evil. Both books were finalists for the Aurora Award, a prestigious award from the Canadian Science Fiction and Fantasy Association. Robert J. Sawyer, winner of the Hugo and Nebula awards, compared TEETH to Stephen King’s Carrie, saying, “TEETH works on several levels: as an over-the-edge contemporary horror novel, as a police procedural, and as a thriller. From its unforgettable opening scene to its last page, TEETH will haunt you for the rest of your life; you will be mesmerized, repelled, and thrilled.” Fangoria called MARTYRS “strong and compelling,” and said that it is “chilling and compelling… a solid, finely crafted horror novel.”
