3 Days To Live by James Patterson (Grand Central) is the top holds title of the week. LibraryReads and Library Journal offer read-alikes for patrons waiting to read this buzziest book.

Three original thrillers combine in one new book from best-selling Patterson with authors Duane Swierczynski, Bill Schweigart, and Julie Margaret Hogben. The title story features a retired CIA agent who is poisoned on her honeymoon in Berlin—and wants revenge in her last three days to live. The second story finds a tech executive in Washington, DC, facing a deal gone wrong and a hit out on his family. Lastly, a Los Angeles doctor is murdered in a botched attempt to steal drugs, and her housekeepers face off against the Russian mob for control of the doctor's estate.—LJ Reviews

All Her Little Secrets by Wanda M. Morris (Morrow)

Appeared on the November 2021 LibraryReads list

“All is not as it first seems in this thriller set in present-day Atlanta. In-house attorney Ellice is suddenly elevated to corporate general counsel after her boss’s death, but things don’t add up. A beautifully written, entertaining mystery with on-target social commentary about workplace politics and racial and sexual discrimination. For fans of Alyssa Cole, Attica Locke, and S. A. Cosby.”—Nina Radakovich, Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System, Atlanta, GA

The Paris Apartment by Lucy Foley (Morrow)

Appeared on the February 2022 LibraryReads List

“Foley hits it out of the ballpark with this solid thriller set in a Paris apartment building. Jess goes looking for her brother, but finds only the smell of bleach and a broken St. Christopher medal lodged in the floorboards. Written in short chapters with multiple points of view and delicious secrets dropped along the way, this gripping, wild ride is impossible to put down. If you like Liane Moriarty or Ruth Ware, pick this one up.”—Douglas Beatty, Baltimore County Public Library, Baltimore, MD 

What Happened to the Bennetts by Lisa Scottoline (Putnam; LJ starred review)

Appeared on the March 2022 LibraryReads List

“A carjacking involving a seemingly perfect family from the Philadelphia suburbs launches a suspenseful tale of bad guys, good guys, good bad guys, and bad good guys. With enough red herrings to fill a smorgasbord, this book about grief, corruption, and family will appeal to fans of Iris Johansen, John Grisham, and Wanda M. Morris.”—Lois Gross, Hoboken Public Library, Hoboken, NJ
