The Other People (2020)
C J Tudor
"Chilling, moving, and disquieting, The Other People proves C. J. Tudor is a force to be reckoned with. With nuanced characters and a satisfying, intricately braided slow-burn that builds to a heart-pounding finish, this novel gripped me, surprised me—and stuck with me long after the final page."

The New Girl (2020)
Harriet Walker
"With elegant prose and complex, vivid characters, The New Girl is a delicious slow burn of a thriller. Harriet Walker has an impressive hold on how women really think, and she sweeps the reader into the book’s suspenseful world, skillfully capturing both the sparkly mania of the fashion world and the strange bell jar of new motherhood. I can’t wait to read more from her."

All the Broken People (2020)
Leah Konen
"This fast-paced but nuanced thrill ride grabbed me on the first page and didn't let go. With spare, haunting prose, a tense and richly wrought setting, intricate plotting, and twists that would make Hitchcock himself gasp, All The Broken People is a masterful debut. Thriller fans, meet your new favorite author."

Everyone Knows How Much I Love You (2020)
Kyle McCarthy
"Ever since I finished Everyone Knows How Much I Love You, I haven't stopped thinking about it: how the prose pops and fizzes; how the characters reside in my mind still like ants in a terrarium; how McCarthy masterfully articulates aspects of the female experience I've always intuited but haven't seen in print. It's a stunning, evocative, unflinching debut, and I can't wait to read whatever she writes next."

Behind the Red Door (2020)
Megan Collins
"Taut, provocative, disturbing--Megan Collins' sophomore novel is more than a thriller; it's a dark and deeply compelling examination of the knife's edge between trust and fear. With muscular prose and richly wrought characters, Behind the Red Door grabbed me, startled me, and didn't let go until I'd torn through every chilling word."

They Wish They Were Us (2020)
Jessica Goodman
"A juicy, fast-paced, addictive tale that's more than a mystery--it's a timely exploration of ambition, loyalty, and how far we'll go to belong. I couldn't put it down."

If I Disappear (2021)
Eliza Jane Brazier
"Subtle, surprising, and genuinely scary...an unflinching exploration of our obsession with true crime and the darkness marbling our psyches. With sinewy prose and nuanced observations about the female experience, this debut marks a ferocious new voice."
thumb
The Girls Are All So Nice Here (2021)
Laurie Elizabeth Flynn
"Juicy, twisty, and relentlessly unsettling, THE GIRLS ARE ALL SO NICE HERE is more than a thriller; it's a masterful portrait of the complexities of female friendships and the raw yearning to fit in. With characters unflinchingly wrought in all their vulnerability and a setting so real, I felt I'd visited the Wesleyan campus myself, this book is a brilliant and wickedly wild ride. I couldn't put it down."

Just One Look (2021)
Lindsay Cameron
"Bitingly modern and totally addictive, Just One Look is a juicy entry into the unhinged-women canon. I loved it—it’s propulsive, surprising, and deeply creepy. With wry prose and deliciously wicked twists, Lindsay Cameron’s suspense debut is the freshest take on stalker fiction since You."

In My Dreams I Hold a Knife (2021)
Ashley Winstead
"Beautiful writing, juicy secrets, complex female characters, and drumbeat suspense—what more could you want from a debut thriller? I'm Ashley Winstead's new biggest fan. If you liked Marisha Pessl's Neverworld Wake or Laurie Elizabeth Flynn's The Girls Are All So Nice Here, trust me—you will love this."
