“Nobody reads a mystery to get to the middle. They read it to get to the end. If it’s a letdown, they won’t buy anymore. The first page sells that book. The last page sells your next book.” MICKEY SPILLANE
My 2015 list this year includes Mystery, Suspense, and Thrillers!
Thereby Hangs a Tail by Spencer Quinn. Chet the Dog is so famous he has his own website- http://www.chetthedog.com/
The Good Girl by Mary Kubica. The “good girl” runs into a bundle of trouble.
Last Words by Michael Koryta. He didn’t know it at the time, but they were the last words he spoke to her.
Little Black Lies by Sandra Block. Black lies are definitely worse than white lies.
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. No doubt this will be on many best lists!
The Night Ferry by Michael Robotham. This ferry will take you on a wild ride.
Orient by Christopher Bollen. Strange things are occuring in the town of Orient on Long Island.
The Wild Inside by Christine Carbo. Some parts of this book are “unbearably grizzly”!
One Step Too Far by Tina Seskis. A twisty, psychological thriller debut novel.
The Silent Sister by Diane Chamberlain. Another winner from author Chamberlain.
Great list of books and I love the MICKEY SPILLANE quote too! So true 🙂 I have an awesome mystery book that I could not put down (perhaps it will make it on a future list of yours) called “Uncontrolled Spin” by author Jerry Summers (http://www.jerrysummersauthor.com/)
You can read an excerpt from the book on his website. It follows marketing mogul Sean Green and his budding romance with new client Jessica Silva (looking to get her apparel company on the map). During their relationship Sean’s best friend and best client is murdered and the plot twists and turns begin! I like this book because it has really well developed characters, it covers a wide array of genres, and it keeps you guessing from start to finish. Hope you will give it a read
