Try Something New: Thriller

Spring is in the air so it’s time to make some changes and give your bookshelves a little spring clean. We think change is a good thing (promise) so if you’re looking to try something a little different then why not take a look at our excellent thriller round up…

The Perfect Girlfriend, Karen Hamilton

Be prepared to put your life on hold for The Perfect Girlfriend (Good Housekeeping)

Brace yourselves as this is a thriller you won’t be able to put down. Meet Juliette. She’s intelligent, driven, committed – and in love. 

Juliette loves Nate.
She will follow him anywhere. She’s even become a flight
attendant for his airline, so she can keep a closer eye on him.

They are meant to be.
The fact that Nate broke up with her six months ago means nothing.
Because Juliette has a plan to win him back.

She is the perfect girlfriend.
And she’ll make sure no one stops her from
getting exactly what she wants.

True love hurts, but Juliette knows it’s worth all the pain…

The Family Next Door, Sally Hepworth

‘Women’s fiction at its finest’ – Liane Moriarty, Number One New York Times bestselling author

If you loved Big Little Lies then we think you’ll love The Family Next Door…if you think you know your neighbours – think again.

The small suburb of Pleasant Court lives up to its name. It’s the kind of place where everyone knows their neighbours, and children play in the street.

Isabelle Heatherington doesn’t fit into this picture of family paradise. Husbandless and childless, she soon captures the attention of three Pleasant Court mothers.

But Ange, Fran and Essie have their own secrets to hide. Like the reason behind Ange’s compulsion to control every aspect of her life. Or why Fran won’t let her sweet, gentle husband near her new baby. Or why, three years ago, Essie took her daughter to the park and returned home without her.

As their obsession with their new neighbour grows, the secrets of these three women begin to spread – and they’re about to find out that when you look at something too closely, you’ll see things you never wanted to see.

The Burial Hour, Jeffery Deaver

‘If you want thrills, Deaver is your man’ Guardian

You can’t go wrong with a thriller from Jeffery Deaver…the master of suspense.

When a man is snatched from a New York street in broad daylight, the only clue is a miniature noose left on the pavement.

By the time criminal forensic scientist Lincoln Rhyme is involved, a video of the missing man is already online, his dying breaths set to a grisly music by someone calling himself The Composer.

Rhyme and fellow investigator Amelia Sachs must follow The Composer across the globe as he continues his horrifying creation, kidnapping further victims to add their last breaths to his piece.

But with Rhyme and Sachs in a whole new world with its own rules, how can they possibly guess what danger they’re in when the music finally stops?
