Here are my top 10 suggestions for a good thriller book to get your claws into.


Author – Courtney Summers

Sadie hasn’t had an easy life. Growing up on her own, she’s been raising her sister Mattie in an isolated small town, trying her best to provide a normal life and keep their heads above water.

But when Mattie is found dead, Sadie’s entire world crumbles. After a somewhat botched police investigation, Sadie is determined to bring her sister’s killer to justice and hits the road following a few meagre clues to find him.

When West McCray—a radio personality working on a segment about small, forgotten towns in America—overhears Sadie’s story at a local gas station, he becomes obsessed with finding the missing girl. He starts his own podcast as he tracks Sadie’s journey, trying to figure out what happened, hoping to find her before it’s too late.

Readers thoughts on this…

“I picked this book up on a whim and I GREATLY enjoyed it. This is a must-read for my fans of crime fiction.”

“This is one of those stories that seeps into your bones somewhere along the way, and it changes the way you look at the world a little. It is the best mystery—and one of the best books, period—that I have ever read, and it is also one of the bleakest, most devastating reading experiences of my life.”

When The Lights Go Out

Author – Mary Kubica

Jessie Sloane is on the path to rebuilding her life after years of caring for her ailing mother. She rents a new apartment and applies for college. But when the college informs her that her social security number has raised a red flag, Jessie discovers a shocking detail that causes her to doubt everything she’s ever known.

Finding herself suddenly at the center of a bizarre mystery, Jessie tumbles down a rabbit hole, which is only exacerbated by grief and a relentless lack of sleep. As days pass and the insomnia worsens, it plays with Jessie’s mind. Her judgment is blurred, her thoughts are hampered by fatigue. Jessie begins to see things until she can no longer tell the difference between what’s real and what she’s only imagined.

Meanwhile, twenty years earlier and two hundred and fifty miles away, another woman’s split-second decision may hold the key to Jessie’s secret past. Has Jessie’s whole life been a lie or have her delusions gotten the best of her?

Readers thoughts on this…

“My oh my, this was a compelling and heartbreaking read my friends! Mary Kubica is the master of suspense and sure knows how to keep the reader on their toes. Like a spider caught in a web, I couldn’t pull myself away from When The Lights Go Out.”

I Know You Know

Author – Gily Macmillan

Twenty years ago, eleven-year-olds Charlie Paige and Scott Ashby were murdered in the city of Bristol, their bodies dumped near a dog racing track. A man was convicted of the brutal crime, but decades later, questions still linger.

For his whole life, filmmaker Cody Swift has been haunted by the deaths of his childhood best friends. The loose ends of the police investigation consume him so much that he decides to return to Bristol in search of answers. Hoping to uncover new evidence, and to encourage those who may be keeping long-buried secrets to speak up, Cody starts a podcast to record his findings. But there are many people who don’t want the case—along with old wounds—reopened so many years after the tragedy, especially Charlie’s mother, Jess, who decides to take matters into her own hands.

When a long-dead body is found in the same location the boys were left decades before, the disturbing discovery launches another murder investigation. Now Detective John Fletcher, the investigator on the original case, must reopen his dusty files and decide if the two murders are linked. With his career at risk, the clock is ticking and lives are in jeopardy…

Readers thoughts on this…

“Gilly Macmillan is a master when it comes to creating perfectly-plotted psychological suspense and characters with real emotion and depth. I KNOW YOU KNOW is a smart thriller that will keep readers on the edge of their seats, from the first gripping chapter all the way through to the mind-blowing finale. Add this to your to-read list.”

“Hands down one of the best thrillers I have read this year.”

The Forbidden Door

Author – Dead Koontz

She was one of the FBI’s top agents until she became the nation’s most-wanted fugitive. Now Jane Hawk may be all that stands between a free nation and its enslavement by a powerful secret society’s terrifying mind-control technology. She couldn’t save her husband, or the others whose lives have been destroyed, but equipped with superior tactical and survival skills—and the fury born of a broken heart and a hunger for justice—Jane has struck major blows against the insidious cabal.

But Jane’s enemies are about to hit back hard. If their best operatives can’t outrun her, they mean to bring her running to them, using her five-year-old son as bait. Jane knows there’s no underestimating their capabilities, but she must battle her way back across the country to the remote shelter where her boy is safely hidden . . . for now.

As she moves resolutely forward, new threats begin to emerge: a growing number of brain-altered victims driven hopelessly, violently insane. With the madness spreading like a virus, the war between Jane and her enemies will become a fight for all their lives—against the lethal terror unleashed from behind the forbidden door.

Don’t miss any of Dean Koontz’s gripping Jane Hawk thrillers:

Readers thoughts on this…

“This series is pretty darn good. Each book is a breakneck thrill ride – and the rate at which he is releasing them I am guessing he sat down one day and the words just started pouring out. The intensity and speed with which they poured out have translated very vividly into the delivery. Each time I start reading I take a big breath because I know I am going to be holding it until I finish.”

“So what do you get when you mix the Matrix, Jason Bourne and your scariest roller coaster ride all in one? You get Dean Koontz’s latest thriller, The Forbidden Door. The newest installment in the Jane Hawk series (#4) is 480 pages of non-stop action, adventure and a wish that not only the book but the entire series never ends.”

Under My Skin

Author – Lisa Unger

It’s been a year since Poppy’s husband, Jack, was brutally murdered during his morning run through Manhattan’s Riverside Park. In the immediate aftermath, Poppy spiraled into an oblivion of grief, disappearing for several days only to turn up ragged and confused wearing a tight red dress she didn’t recognize. What happened to Poppy during those lost days? And more importantly, what happened to Jack?

The case was never solved, and Poppy has finally begun to move on. But those lost days have never stopped haunting her. Poppy starts having nightmares and blackouts–there are periods of time she can’t remember, and she’s unable to tell the difference between what is real and what she’s imagining. When she begins to sense that someone is following her, Poppy is plunged into a game of cat and mouse, determined to unravel the mystery around her husband’s death. But can she handle the truth about what really happened?

Readers thoughts on this…

“This book was one WILD and CRAZY RIDE!!!”

“Really fantastic!! I’ve read Lisa Unger before and she never disappoints!! The characters in this book feel so real and believable. I felt their struggles and frustrations. The ending was a complete surprise, as all good mysteries should be.”


Leave No Trace

Author – Mindy Mejia

There is a place in Minnesota with hundreds of miles of glacial lakes and untouched forests called the Boundary Waters. Ten years ago a man and his son trekked into this wilderness and never returned.

Search teams found their campsite ravaged by what looked like a bear. They were presumed dead until a decade later…the son appeared. Discovered while ransacking an outfitter store, he was violent and uncommunicative and sent to a psychiatric facility. Maya Stark, the assistant language therapist, is charged with making a connection with their high-profile patient. No matter how she tries, however, he refuses to answer questions about his father or the last ten years of his life

But Maya, who was abandoned by her own mother, has secrets, too. And as she’s drawn closer to this enigmatic boy who is no longer a boy, she’ll risk everything to reunite him with his father who has disappeared from the known world.

Readers thoughts on this…

“This is a wonderfully atmospheric psychological mystery from Mindy Melia that grips from beginning to end.”

“My initial impression when I first started reading LEAVE NO TRACE by MINDY MEJIA was that it was an extremely compelling tale and I was totally intrigued in discovering all the multiple layered mysteries that this book had to offer. I found the storyline to be quite interesting and unique but I struggled a little bit with some of the main characters, Maya’s choices that she made and her motivations.”

In Her Bones

Author – Kate Moretti

Fifteen years ago, Lilith Wade was arrested for the brutal murder of six women. After a death row conviction, media frenzy, and the release of an unauthorized biography, her thirty-year-old daughter Edie Beckett is just trying to survive out of the spotlight. She’s a recovering alcoholic with a dead-end city job and an unhealthy codependent relationship with her brother.

Edie also has a disturbing secret: a growing obsession with the families of Lilith’s victims. She’s desperate to see how they’ve managed—or failed—to move on. While her escalating fixation is a problem, she’s careful to keep her distance. That is, until she crosses a line and a man is found murdered.

Edie quickly becomes the prime suspect—and while she can’t remember everything that happened the night of the murder, she’d surely remember killing someone. With the detective who arrested her mother hot on her trail, Edie goes into hiding. She’s must get to the truth of what happened that night before the police—or the real killer—find her.

Unless, of course, she has more in common with her mother than she’s willing to admit…

Readers thoughts on this…

“This is my third Kate Moretti novel and I am a big fan of her writing style. This one has a dark and twisted theme. It reads just like a true crime story.”

“In Her Bones has a very dark and creepy theme to it which I loved.”


Author – Amy Lukavics

At seventeen, June Hardie is everything a young woman in 1951 shouldn’t be—independent, rebellious, a dreamer. June longs to travel, to attend college and to write the dark science fiction stories that consume her waking hours. But her parents only care about making June a better young woman. Her mother grooms her to be a perfect little homemaker while her father pushes her to marry his business partner’s domineering son. When June resists, her whole world is shattered—suburbia isn’t the only prison for different women…”

June’s parents commit her to Burrow Place Asylum, aka the Institution. With its sickening conditions, terrifying staff and brutal “medical treatments,” the Institution preys on June’s darkest secrets and deepest fears. And she’s not alone. The Institution terrorizes June’s fragile roommate, Eleanor, and the other women locked away within its crumbling walls. Those who dare speak up disappear…or worse. Trapped between a gruesome reality and increasingly sinister hallucinations, June isn’t sure where her nightmares end and real life begins. But she does know one thing: in order to survive, she must destroy the Institution before it finally claims them all.

Readers thoughts on this…

It is such a powerful read. At first, I didn’t know if I was going to like it, the first 100-200 pages took me a while to read because I wasn’t that into it, but then I started tearing through this book, unable to put it down.”

“I’ve been told by so many people that I need to read this book. It gets so much hype that I thought there was absolutely NO way it would live up to it. But it did more than that. It surpassed it.”

Red War

Author – Vince Flynn

When Russian president Maxim Krupin discovers that he has inoperable brain cancer, he’s determined to cling to power. His first task is to kill or imprison any of his countrymen who can threaten him. Soon, though, his illness becomes serious enough to require a more dramatic diversion—war with the West.

Upon learning of Krupin’s condition, CIA director Irene Kennedy understands that the US is facing an opponent who has nothing to lose. The only way to avoid a confrontation that could leave millions dead is to send Mitch Rapp to Russia under impossibly dangerous orders. With the Kremlin’s entire security apparatus hunting him, he must find and kill a man many have deemed the most powerful in the world.

Success means averting a war that could consume all of Europe. But if his mission is discovered, Rapp will plunge Russia and America into a conflict that neither will survive.

Readers thoughts on this…

“I absolutely loved this Mitch Rapp thriller from Kyle Mills. He has done a tremendous job of carrying on Rapp from the Vince Flynn era and he continues to create amazing, from the headlines Thrillers!”

“Mitch Rapp is back in Red War in what I believe to be Kyle Mills’ best work yet. A task I didn’t think was possible after my personal favorite Order to Kill since taking over writing duties in 2014 for the series.”

Flight Or Fright

Author – Stephen King

Fasten your seatbelts for an anthology of turbulent tales curated by Stephen King and Bev Vincent. This exciting new anthology, perfect for airport or airplane reading, includes an original introduction and story notes for each story by Stephen King, along with brand new stories from Stephen King and Joe Hill.

About the Book:
Stephen King hates to fly.

Now he and co-editor Bev Vincent would like to share this fear of flying with you.

Welcome to Flight or Fright, an anthology about all the things that can go horribly wrong when you’re suspended six miles in the air, hurtling through space at more than 500 mph and sealed up in a metal tube (like—gulp!—a coffin) with hundreds of strangers. All the ways your trip into the friendly skies can turn into a nightmare, including some we’ll bet you’ve never thought of before… but now you will the next time you walk down the jetway and place your fate in the hands of a total stranger.

Featuring brand new stories by Joe Hill and Stephen King, as well as fourteen classic tales and one poem from the likes of Richard Matheson, Ray Bradbury, Roald Dahl, Dan Simmons, and many others, Flight or Fright is, as King says, “ideal airplane reading, especially on stormy descents… Even if you are safe on the ground, you might want to buckle up nice and tight.”

Readers thoughts on this…

“I enjoyed this a lot. As in other anthologies some of the stories were great, some not as much but overall a solid lineup.”

“Did love this one! Some of the stories were a little “eh” but a lot of them were really good. Especially in the second half of the book! No surprise but Joe Hill, Roald Dahl, Stephen King, and Bev Vincent were fantastic!”




  • Amer Azmi

    I love your site since you’re frequently updating your site consistently with new books that I’ve never heard of before. I’m fan of murder and killer story. I’m also love psycho story. From all the list in this article, only 2 books I found that is interesting for me which is The Forbidden Door and Sadie. The Forbidden Door seems like a psycho story and Sadie is murder story. Thanks for this list. I’ll check them out in the Amazon later 🙂

  • Danny

    Flight or fright looks seriously cool. Stephen King is a great writer; I’m glad you included him on the list! I must admit, he was the only one of the authors that I actually recognized. I imagine there are a few big names contributing to the anthology too though, right?

    Red War looks pretty good too; but why is this one a thriller rather than historical fiction? Or a bit of both?

  • tim

    What great picks on some super thrillers.   I always hate when I buy a book and get 50 pages in to realize I’m not into the story.  Funny how that is sometimes.  All of these seem to be winners.   Looking forward to the new Koontz.

    Just got back from a trip to Vegas…long flight from the east coast and am sorry I didn’t have King’s new one “Flight or Fright”.   Maybe it’s better that I didn’t read it in flight now that I thank about it.  ha!

    Great reviews and selections…thanks a gain for awesome scoop. 

  • Anna

    You’ve found some interesting reads. I enjoy a mystery without murder or anything to scary. I would probably go with When the Lights Go Out. Was is scary or just intense? My mom used to read Dean Koontz all the time. So maybe that one would be my 2nd choice.

  • Daniel

    I must say that my favorite genres are horror and thriller. Reading books is the same as watching film, you don’t see scenes but you can imagine it while reading. I have read “In Her Bones” and that book is amazing and it is not expensive at all. I can’t wait to see most popular thriller books in 2019.

  • Ropata

    Wow your top ten pick here sound really moving! I think it would be great to see at least a couple of these thrillers were someday soon made into a movie if they haven’t already lol. I particularly like the look of, “Under My Skin” and I think I definitely going to get a good read out of that. Thanks for the awesome recommendations

    I actually find thrillers to be the most exciting genre of books to read, mainly for the realism it portrays as to how far the human mind create its own fear. So Crazy! 

  • Chris

    All of the books mentioned in your article above look like interesting choices if I’m honest with you…but one really stands out to my tastes…

    I’m a BIG horror fan and over the years I have gone through a lot of horror authors – Dean Koontz is always near the top of this list (behind the great Stephen King of course!). 

    I was wondering if this ‘The Forbidden Door’ release had these elements of horror to it, or has he opted to go down a slightly watered down route and release a thriller instead?

  • Parmi

    Thanks for sharing these! I have been wanting to get back to fiction books for a while now and I come to think of it, I think thriller books might be a good place to start. I love thriller movies, so I can imagine the same with the thriller books. 

    I find ‘Fight or flight’ to the most interesting out of these. I used to be terrified of airplanes when I was young, so think with the kind of plot it has, it will be able to resonate with me well. Plus it’s written by Stephen King so you can’t really go wrong with his books.

  • Stew

    Nice list of thrillers.  I think I like all of them being a mystery and thriller fanatic.

    There are 2 that stand out for me.  The first is When the Lights Go Out, and the second is Flight or Fright,  I read Stephen King a lot, but have never seen this book.  I think I have to get it now.

    When the Lights Go Out sounds perfect from your description and its now on my list of books to read.

  • Ruya

    I’m so happy that I’ve found your site, this is just what I’ve been looking for! I’m a real bookworm and I love searching for new books. I haven’t read a thriller book in years and would love to buy one. “The forbidden door” and “Under my skin” sound pretty exciting. I just bookmarked your site in order to stay updated about new and interesting reads. 

  • Shane

    I think you have put together a very worthwhile site with a format that is easy to read and understand. I stand in a bookshop for ages trying to read a little snippet to see if i might like it. so to be able to do that here makes it very simple and time saving, to look at the small taste of what the book is about before purchasing is great. You have put together a very interesting list of top thrillers. Very professional site, keep up the good work.

    Thanks Shane 

  • Rika

    I am a big fan of suspense dramas, but thrillers are 2nd on my list.  I love to read as much as possible.  I think you have a great website here with excellent reviews.  From the Top 10 list, “I Know, You Know” caught my attention.  In your opinion which one would you say stand out above the rest?  (I am not sure if you listed the Top 10 list from best to worst).

    Thanks for a great post!

  • Kuu

    Out of all the books that you have listed out my favourite book is the The Forbidden Door. I just loved the story and how the author created the main character. I think Jane was a very brave soul and she did her best. Since I have already read this book which one of these books will you recommend for me? I really enjoy reading books that are well detailed and really expand your mind. Thanks in advance. 

  • glenda

    Thank you for this list of top 10 Thriller Books! ‘Just the thrill of it’ Reading this thriller-packed books are one way of relieving stress from days work and also keeping your mind stimulated as if the events are happening you feel you’re actually there, hovering behind the protagonist awaiting what comes next.


  • Gabbey

    Wow you really selected some pretty awesome books! I’ve always been a fan of thriller books but scared of thriller movies or anything scary. The adrenaline and suspense scares me in thrillers. I think I would definatly read “When the lights go out” that seems like an interesting book, I’ll have to look into it more! Where is the cheapest place to buy this book? Thanks for your help!

  • Marlinda Davis

    Hey there! This is just what I’ve been looking for to get into the mood and spirit of Halloween. I’m all about romance EXCEPT for this time of year. ‘Leave No Traces’ sounds interesting. I think I’ll bookmark this page and get it later on when I’m ready to do some reading. This weather certainly is perfect for it. Cuddling up in the blanket with a hot cut of cocoa reading sounds like a date to me! haha!

    Thanks for sharing,


  • John

    What a great selection of some intriguing thrillers.  Your short extracts or summaries are wonderful as they give me a great idea of that its about or rather tempt me to want to read more. I am really intrigued by the Red War the most.But Flight or Fright looks very hold onto your knuckles kind of story and reading too.This might be a silly question but have either of those been made into a movie?  As in addition to reading the books, they look worth waiting or watching too!

  • Lauren Kinghorn

    Ooh Jayde, your reviews make me want to buy, buy, buy.  I’m bookmarking this page so I can do just that when I have clocked up some more Amazon vouchers with my Affiliate earnings. You give just enough intrigue to make me want to read each book. I’m particularly interested in “I know you know” and “Under my Skin”.  Ooh, and “In Her Bones”.  What a brilliant line-up. 

    Do you have a post on best books written Indie Authors? I’m on an Indie Author mission at the moment after interviewing an Indie Novelist, Melina Lewis and reading her riveting page-turner, “After You Died”.  We want to start an Indie Author movement.

  • TeeTeng

    Hi. Thriller books is a development story that makes people curious but wants to know the story inside. I really like two of your books, ‘I Know You Know’ and ‘The Forbidden Door’. The stories inside are about the truth about detectives fighting against enemies and how to find out the killings, it is a good book for readers to broaden their knowledge. I have long time not read about in thriller books, but after reading your article, I have raised a lot of interest in thriller books, it is really exciting!      

  • Emmanuel Buysse

    Great post and good info!

    Really, you come with the right post for me.

    In the previous one I stated I love Thriller books and look: you have a post about it!

    Only Sadie I don’t like, but really, the rest I’m going to order, I will have great nights reading this, in the cold winter.

    Thanks a lot for it, you made a man happy.

  • Stefan

    Great, finally some thriller book ideas I can check out.

    I started running out of good stories and had to move to another type. I love thriller the best though.

    I know you know is the first I’ll check out. and then the Russian story at the end of the list. Political thrillers are my favorite and red war seems to perfect for me. Thanks 🙂

  • Norman

    Great site, and great post! You’ve covered a really nice mix of different types of thrillers – just reading the summaries took me out of my usual reading topics focus. It was a much-needed diversion. The 3 which have caught my eye are “Sadie,” “The Nightingale” and “Red War”. Each is different, but full of potential twists and turns. I’m going to bookmark your site so I ca refer back to it to top up my reading list. Awesome job. Thanks!

  • Anusuya

    Can you think of a better companion than a book? It educates you in many ways.

    It thought me ways to eat, live, dream and the list goes on and on. It instills wisdom within us to decide between wrong and right and taking small to big decisions in life.

    More importantly It dragged me from rags to reaches. 

    I love books.

    I love many kinds of books. The books on the this are all exciting. The credit goes to the author how he/she brings the plot up to bring you the excitement. The author here has done a full justice to each of the books here in my opinion.

    I like “Nightingale” the character that have some relevance I can connect to my culture. The marriage of a girl is decided by the father. Some of them end up similar to June. I am really inclined to check it out.

    The books are all time favorites of most and I am sure lot of people will enjoy it.

From my perspective, I tend to that Under My Skin by Lisa Unger is a best read as I’ve read that book many times. This particular book contains lot of suspense and I love reading books like this. I’m planning to take up RED WAR next time as the synopsis sounds good.

  • GeeEss

    It’s by luck I came across your site doing some casual search over the internet (Google to be more precise)! You have done a splendid job in listing top ten picks horror and thriller segment. All of them seems to be perfect for one breath reading from cover to the last page. However my top 2 priority picks will be Flight Or Fright by Stephen King and The Forbidden Door by Dead Koontz.


  • Henry

    Hi! Your site has become an important reference for me when picking up books. Flight to Fright by Stephen King and Bev Vincent has caught my attention. It would be interesting to read while waiting for flights. Naaahh! Just kidding! I would prefer to read when my feet are firm on the ground! 🙂 Thank you very much for these recommendations in this list!

  • Sahar

    I love your choice of books, they look really interesting. I have been reading so many self-help books that I forgot how much fun it is to read thriller books and unleash the imagination. Will definitely be checking them out one by one. Love how your choices are not so generic 🙂

     Keep it up!


  • mzakapon

    Hi, You have listed top 10 thriller books here. I love to read thriller book specially with spy story and action adventure. I like the “The Forbidden Door” and have read it twice. the main character Jane was a real hero in this story. I think Nightingale is another popular story and have not read yet. But I am going to read that one soon. I actually love to enjoy reading books in my leisure time and if you have any suggestion for me, please tell me. Thanks for sharing this information.

  • Ngonidzashe Manzwangani

    mmmmh, its quite a thrilling list of Top 10 thriller books, I had a tough time on deciding the best out of the list, but I at last fell in love with Sadie’s story because its related to my life. Having raised up with my brother with much love, I just felt how Mattie’s life meant to Saddie. The death of Mattie is a total blow to her sister. I am really eager to know how McCray’s help will bring relief to Sadie. I will have my hands on this book very soon. 

    Thank you so much

  • Lok Which

    Hello, Woow great suggestions of books here, I was on your previous post for Top 10 mystery books and I picked just one to read (dare me) it’s really a nice experience. Here I think I love the design of under my skin. It is my next to read, I know I’ll have a sweet experience with it. I’ll keep following your blog for my interesting books.

  • Richard

    Hi JAYDE,

    Your top ten list could not have come at a better time. Finding great gift ideas has always been a struggle and I want to thank you for taking the guesswork out of it and help narrow down the choices.

    When compiling your list, did you have an age group in mind that this is best suited to? I have found that many books are written with a target audience in mind and knowing this will assist in my choices.


  • Antoinette Song, PhD

    Hello Jayde,

    I love your site, it looks great. In addition, you did a wonderful presentation of these books and gave me a motive to read them. I was not a fan of thrillers or fictions, but you gave me a motive to read the ones you reviewed in this particular presentation just to discover. 

    I went through your most recent posts and appreciated the consistency in introducing and reviewing new books. You allow readers to discover new publications and enrich their library.

    You are doing a wonderful Job.

  • Agelita

    Hi and thank you for the wonderful list of books. The one that really caught my attention is “In her bones” and I’ll be reading it over the holidays. I’m a screenwriter and I love the thriller genre, so reading a good thriller is always amazing for me. Of course, “In her bones” looks like it’s much more than just a good thriller. It promises a twist in the genre with all this family deal going on. I hope it’s as compelling as it promises to be! 

    You’ve done a great job creating this list. Thanks!

  • Thriller books website

    I went into your website today. I’m not a huge fan of thrillers. However there must be a good amount of people that do. Your website has plenty of content and a good amount of traffic. Your book reviews are well written with plenty of details. I love the portion of the website. Where you offer to publish other peoples books. I noticed that your linked with amazon. I would recommend linking to other seos like facebook, bing, Pinterest. Other then that your website is solid.

    Thank you.

  • ecpags74

    Thanks for these recommendations!  I’m always on the look out for a good read and some of these will definitely fill the bill.

    I’m not inclined to read the “Flight or Flight” while I’m on a plane though.  It reminds me of the Twilight Zone episode where William Shatner is the only one on a plane who sees the little gremlins ripping the plane apart.  So scary!

    Thanks for all of this.

    I love reading thrillers, and Dean Koontz is one of my favorite authors, so I will definitely have to get The Forbidden Door.

    Looking at your other recommendations, Sadie also looks like a great read.

    My third choice here would definitely be The Nightingale. Stories about mental facilities are usually not easy to put down.

    Thank you for this list and I will definitely be visiting again to get my next list of to read books.

    I’m excited by all your recommendations. I haven’t read a book for so long, due to many other commitments. Your post has reminded me that I need to find this part of myself back. 

    I’m eager to start reading ‘The Forbidden Door’ and ‘I know you know’. 

    Can’t wait to get my hands on these books. Thanks for the great review!

    Oooh, I love coming to your site to find new books. Thrillers are my absolute favorites, and I’m happy to see a nice list of them here! 

    All of these books sound SO good. I’m especially intrigued by “Leave No Trace”. I think I’m definitely going to have to put that one on my to-read list. I think “Flight or Fright” will just make me even more afraid of flying! lol (Or maybe it’s supposed to help ease the fear?)

    I wish I had time for all of these. Do you have any top picks? If you had to choose 1 or 2 from this list, which would they be?
