Layne Fargo recommends
Foul Is Fair (2020)
(Foul Is Fair, book 1)
"Capin’s writing will seduce you with its beauty and then, when you least suspect it, slice you to the bone?just like Foul is Fair’s captivating, vicious, entirely unforgettable heroine, Jade."
Follow Me (2020)
"In this twisty thriller about every woman's worst online nightmare, Barber expertly explores complex issues of privacy, voyeurism, and consent while keeping the pages turning with heart-pounding, all-too-plausible suspense."
Take Me Apart (2020)
"Sara Sligar’s obsession-worthy debut combines the penetrating insight of the best art criticism with the seductive menace of a modern Gothic romance. Take Me Apart is my favorite kind of thriller: masterfully paced and psychologically precise, with subtle twists that reveal themselves like a developing photograph."
"Zoje Stage's foreboding sophomore novel combines the bone-chilling paranoia of The Shining with the uncanny suspense of Suspiria. Just as deliciously unsettling as her unforgettable debut, Wonderland is a must-read for horror and thriller fans."
Behind the Red Door (2020)
"Megan Collins is the master of emotionally resonant, deeply personal suspense fiction where the small details are just as chilling as the dramatic turns. Behind the Red Door is gripping and gorgeously-written and, like her stellar debut The Winter Sister, I'm certain this book will haunt me for years to come."
Somewhere in the Dark (2020)
R J Jacobs
"This pulse-pounding thriller, [with an]unforgettable heroine, as heartbreaking as she is chilling, and Jacobs's evocative writing makes you feel like you're breathing in the sweltering Nashville air. Somewhere in the Dark is expertly plotted, emotionally satisfying, and not to be missed!"
The Watcher (2020)
(Kateri Fisher, book 1)
"The Watcher is a taut literary thriller about desperation, desire, and what people are capable of when they've got nothing left to lose. Pashley's masterful prose makes your heart ache and your pulse pound for every single character populating this chilly, unforgiving--and unforgettable--world."
The Lady Upstairs (2020)
"Sharp as a stiletto and twice as sexy, The Lady Upstairs is the smart, sultry noir we need right now. Sutton's feminist femme fatale heroine will seduce and intoxicate you, and you'll love every second of it."
Girl, 11 (2021)
Amy Suiter Clarke
"GIRL, 11 is a chilling, expertly-constructed thriller that strikes the perfect balance between page-turning twists and piercing commentary on the true cost of crime. If you devoured I’ll Be Gone In The Dark, Amy Suiter Clarke’s debut is about to be your new obsession."
Girl One (2021)
Sara Flannery Murphy
"Sara Flannery Murphy’s Girl One is both a heart-pounding, bingeworthy thriller and a riveting exploration of creation, consent, and the power of sisterhood. Don’t miss this compelling new entry to the feminist literary canon!"
