Mystery/Thriller Recommendations

Post by hsimone »

Are there any novels that you would recommend to others that you found particularly entertaining, well-written, or hooked you from the beginning to the end in the mystery and/or thriller genres?

I really enjoyed The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides. I read this one toward the end of last year and sped right through it. The story follows a woman whose husband was killed and she never uttered a word after the event, and a doctor who tries to figure out what truly happened the night her husband died. Did she kill her husband? Was there someone else that did it?

I loved this book as well!

I recommend "The woman in the window" by A.J. Finn, another great book that follows an agoraphobic woman witnessing a murder, or did she? I loved this book!

All the Missing Girls by Megan Miranda is a FANTASTIC mystery. She's a great author, and this is one of my favorite novels by her.

I just finished my review for Mixed Blessings by J.M. Muse. It's a novel about races, religions, and power in America. I really enjoyed it and I find it important.
