The Herd (2020)
"Andrea Bartz has created another deliciously twisty thriller that is so much more than a page-turner. At its heart, The Herd is an ambitious novel about the complex dynamics of an exclusive all-female coworking spaceempowering yet cut-throat, open yet exclusive. Filled with insights and biting social commentary about the commoditization of female ambition, The Herd is sure to be one of the spring’s buzziest must-reads."
Pretty Things (2020)
"Part psychological thriller and part morality tale, Janelle Brown's Pretty Things is literary suspense at its best. Gorgeous prose, complex characters inhabiting the fascinating worlds of elite Instagram influencers and high-stakes scam artists, a thought-provoking dual narrative, a twisty plot with a shocking, never-saw-that-coming ending--this brilliant novel has it all! I read it in one day in one sitting, mesmerized, and I loved every moment."
Take Me Apart (2020)
"Take Me Apart is a stunning debut. In gorgeous prose, Sara Sligar creates a haunting and decidedly feminist literary thriller that explores mental illness, violence, and the nature of obsession. I loved this novel so much that I blew off all my responsibilities, turned off my phone, and blistered through the whole thing in one sitting. Unforgettable and thought-provoking, Take Me Apart has my highest recommendation."

An absolute pleasure to read, guaranteed to have readers turning the pages late into the night."
Don't Look For Me (2020)
"Wendy Walker has done it again, created a nail-biter that’ll keep you up all night. But DON’T LOOK FOR ME is so much more than a twisty thriller. It’s a heartbreaking portrait of a family coping with grief and an insightful study of guilt and blame, gaslighting and agency. If you love fast-paced page-turners with relatable, flawed characters, look no further!"
Nights When Nothing Happened (2020)
"In intricately elegant prose, Simon Han explores the desire to belongto a marriage, a family, a community, a country. Nights When Nothing Happened is about how we use words and silences to connect and wound, and how we make sacrifices for those we love. It broke my heart and gave me hope, all at the same time."
