Six Picks: Thrillers

If there’s one genre we love above all others (though please don’t make us definitively choose), it’s thrillers. Psychological thrillers, crime thrillers, conspiracy thrillers—we aren’t picky when it comes to the sub-genre—we’ll devour any heart-pumping mystery you set in front of us. The landscape is a crowded place, however; how do you know if a thriller’s twist is going to be twisty enough, or if the protagonist will be likable enough to root for? Allow us to help. We’ve picked six favorite thrillers that we’ve enjoyed recently and we want you to know about. Pick up one or two, and don’t forget to lock all the windows and doors before cracking the cover!

What are some of your favorite thrillers? Which ones should we read? Let us know in the comments below and you may see your suggestion in a future episode of Six Picks!

    My husband and I often joke about how we can never go to Northern England or London, especially Oxford, because everyone seems to get murdered or disappeared there! Many BBC programs/series that we watch are murderous stories in Northumberland! Noticed a couple of these picks are set in London! Thanks for the recommendations as I have been looking for a good thriller!

  • Lucy M. Lockley

    Currently listening to BEHIND HER EYES by Sarah Pinborough; an unusual love triangle, unspeakable secrets, unreliable narrator (possibly more than one!) – has you wondering “how the h*?#’ does she know that!” Delicious psychological suspense – such fun! 🙂

    I’ve read IN THE WOODS. I’ve read everything Tana French has written. BROKEN HARBOR is the best in the series.

    I cannot wait to read “The Girl Before” by JP Delaney. I loved BEHIND HER EYES BY Sarah Pinborough and THE DRY by Jane Harper

  • Dana Marshall

    I’ve read everything Tana French has written. Taylor Stevens is a local author and she is just as fascinating as her main character. I would also recommend Jane Casey. Her first book is The Burning and she probably has my favorite ongoing character ever. Maeve is an young Irish detective on the London murder squad and every book in this series is excellent.
