Andrew Pyper recommends
Before I Wake (2006)
Robert J Wiersema
"Before I Wake provocatively dances along the lines between faith and science, life and death."
The Good and the Ghastly (2011)
James Boice
"Bloody and bloody funny, James Boice’s at once coolly objective and deeply human writing does the dystopian novel like no other. The Good and the Ghastly reads like Cormac McCarthy executing a Kurt Vonnegut premise through a Joan Didion filter. An original, in other words."
Midnight in Havana (2012)
(Inspector Ramirez, book 1)
Peggy Blair
Every House Is Haunted (2012)
Ian Rogers
"Ian Rogers' stories are old-fashioned in the very best sense: classic chillers in the spirit of Shirley Jackson and Richard Matheson. Every House Is Haunted is full of well-crafted, satisfying twists, a fine companion for any reader of literate horror."
Zagreb Cowboy (2015)
(Marko Della Torre, book 1)
Alen Mattich
"Zagreb Cowboy is invigorating Euro noir, dark and energizing as good coffee."
Still Mine (2016)
(Clare and Malcolm, book 1)
Amy Stuart
"Twisty and swift, Amy Stuart’s Still Mine is a darkly entertaining mystery machine. But what will really surprise you is the emotional foundation on which it has been built."
The Hatching (2016)
(Hatching, book 1)
Ezekiel Boone
"The Hatching is old school global plague horror of the freakiest sort. A deft and nasty thriller."
Our Little Secret (2017)
Roz Nay
"Roz Nay shows how the past is never truly past, and can be darker than we guess, especially when it comes to first loves. A most promising debut."
Yesterday (2017)
(Hans Richardson, book 1)
Felicia Yap
"At once a high-concept thriller with a sci-fi premise and an old-school noir, Felicia Yap's Yesterday is a tasty, satisfyingly grounded blend. A rich, rewarding debut that shows the ways that memory can betray us as painfully--and perhaps as inevitably--as those we love."
Find You in the Dark (2018)
Nathan Ripley
"Find You in the Dark is an unsettling exploration of obsession you won't soon forget. Nathan Ripley delivers a first novel that fans of Patricia Highsmith psychological thrills and Thomas Harris cat-and-mouse suspense will devour. I certainly did."
Seven Days (2019)
Patrick Senécal
"A visceral thriller propelled by the seething, heartbreaking passion of revenge. Senécal holds nothing back, which is what makes reading him feel so dangerous."
Death in the Family (2020)
(Shana Merchant, book 1)
Tessa Wegert
"Tessa Wegert's Death in the Family assembles delicious ingredients--isolation, a ticking clock, family secrets--and creates a mystery at once familiar and distinctly her own. Bloody good comfort food."
Loss Lake (2020)
Amber Cowie
"A small town gothic thriller that pokes its toes into the dangerous waters of the monstrous, Loss Lake is a perfect diversion for a long, chilly night. Amber Cowie delivers a mystery that tastes like Halloween, complete with scares and surprising identities behind its masks."
What You Never Knew (2021)
Jessica Hamilton
"Jessica Hamilton brings the spooky thrills in her debut, an involving spin on the gothic cabin-in-the-woods mystery. What You Never Knew definitely puts good use to its inventive - and chilling - point of view: a story told partly by the living, partly by the dead."
The Blacktongue Thief (2021)
(Blacktongue, book 1)
Christopher Buehlman
"Nobody combines the lyrical and visceral quite like Christopher Buehlman. The Blacktongue Thief is fantasy of distinction-in its wit, its hard magic, its chiseled detail. Prepare to be transported."
Come With Me (2021)
Ronald Malfi
"This is what it is to be transported: you might think you're on solid ground, but Come with Me is a story that will carry you, inescapably, into the uncanny, the horrific."
Chasing the Boogeyman (2021)
(Boogeyman, book 1)
Richard Chizmar
"Chasing the Boogeyman pulled me down deep then buried me alive. Combining gritty true crime with the darkly imagined, Chizmar offers something unique—and uniquely frightening."
Beneath the Stairs (2022)
Jennifer Fawcett
"Are you always on the lookout for a rich, mystery-riddled haunted house novel for grown-ups? Me too. Jennifer Fawcett's Beneath the Stairs is that book. A thrilling, thoughtful, character-driven crucible that reveals the ways childhood fear clings to us, shapes us, but can also show the one way out of our adult darkness."
Ordinary Monsters (2022)
(Talents , book 1)
J M Miro
"J.M. Miro's Ordinary Monsters reads like a Dickensian X-Men. At once lush and refined, grounded and fantastical, it will pull you into its world in the way of the most fulfilling entertainments."
The Opportunist (2022)
Elyse Friedman
"In The Opportunist, family brings unavoidable dangers. So does money. So does our memory of who we used to be. For her part, Elyse Friedman brings wit and pace and plenty of surprises to a novel you think you've figured out at least three or four times, but each time you'll be thrilled when proven wrong."
A History of Fear (2022)
Luke Dumas
"A delicious walk along the razor's edge between the imagined and the supernatural, A History of Fear is candy for readers who like their thrills real and their horror a worrying whisper in their head."
