Mystery Thriller

A Silent Takeover by Sarvananda Chandrashekaraiah

A Silent Takeover was intense and suspenseful, and was a thriller to its very core. This book flows so smoothly, at a nice brisk pace. It’s one that you could easily read in a day or two if you were so inclined. There is an intriguing plot, lots of twists, some wonderful characters, plenty of clues, suspects, and a good dose of thrill.

Book Review: The Glass Hotel by Emily St. John Mandel

The Glass Hotel by Emily St. John Mandel starts with what appears to be a scene of Vincent’s final moments after falling off a ship. The 5 star luxury Glass Hotel was in Caiette, a small and remote part of Vancouver Island. It was owned by super wealthy Jonathan Alkaitis and part of the story was about his Ponzi scheme but also was about his ‘wife’ Vincent who disappeared from the deck of the ship Neptune Cumberland.

Book Review: Wicked Money by Minal Sarosh

Wicked Money contains everything needed for a great thriller: just the right amount of characters, all with their own believable personalities; tons of gritty action throughout; familiar locations, an eye for detail, sharp dialogue and conflict on every page.

Book Review: The Last Mrs. Parrish by Liv Constantine

The Last Mrs Parrish is admittedly light on psychological suspense but is one very sassy thriller which takes some surprising turns as the story progresses and quickly becomes an insidiously addictive read! The simple premise undersells this novel which has a lot more substance than it might appear and is underpinned by a solid plot, ensuring that it is more than simply chic lit with its claws out! In a well constructed story that zips along and touches upon some surprisingly weighty issues the end result is a riotously funny and very honest novel.

Book Review: Lock Every Door by Riley Sager

Lock Every Door by Riley Sager contains all the horror and gothic tropes that I love in this type of story – ominous dreams, strange noises at night, cryptic notes, secret nooks and crannies, a combination of unfriendly and over friendly neighbours, mysterious and sudden disappearances, and that's just for starters. The creepy, picturesque setting of The Bartholomew was as glamorous and seductive as it was eerie and claustrophobic, and as you would expect has a cursed history, of suspicious deaths.

Book Review: The Sister by Louise Jensen

The Sister by Louise Jensen is this author’s debut novel, and what a cracker it is! A dark psychological thriller, the twists and turns continue in a relentless fashion. I will admit to wanting to smack Grace a couple of times and yell at her because she couldn’t see what I could see! 

Book Review: Faith and the Beloved by Kochery Shibu

Faith and the Beloved by Kochery C Shibu opens with a murder of Tony D'Souza by nerdy girl Alice Cherokil.

Another interesting character is Prem Rolland who comes from a small village Kishanganj and His brother Arun Rolland was killed by police. The lives of these three characters, Alice, Naithy and Prem intersect and the web of love, lust, faith and betrayal begins.

Book Review: Behind Closed Doors by B. A. Paris

Behind Closed Doors was a psychological thriller/suspense novel and it kept me turning the pages to see what was going to happen next! Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace.

He’s a dedicated attorney who has never lost a case; she is a flawless homemaker, a masterful gardener and cook, and dotes on her disabled younger sister.
