The Chestnut Man by Søren Sveistrup was such a good thriller! I first heard about this book on The Popcast podcast when it was Jamie B. Golden’s “green light” one week. (LOVE this podcast and it brings so much joy to my weekly work commutes.)
Last Day by Luanne Rice is a suspense novel about twin sisters who run an art gallery. The story involves murder, theft, betrayal, jealously…pretty much every element of your typical “thriller.” I put that in quotations because this was just so-so for me. I want to truly be in suspense when I read a thriller and be a little nervous about what the next chapter holds and this one just didn’t do that for me.
If I were to recommend a psychological thriller to a true suspense fan, I would want you to consider the following:
The Rainmaker by John Grisham was a Christmas gift from my parents. This legal thriller was published in 1995, and while some of the technology used was outdated (hello, car phones!) the story did not seem outdated at all.
