All Hallows Eve

by Maria Cox

Are you skipping the Halloween hoopla this year? Rather stay in and curl up with a good book? Well, below are three suggested titles from the top ten best thrillers of all time according to Publishers Weekly. In no particular order:

The Spy Who Came in from the Cold by John le Carré

This is the quintessential espionage thriller. Set during the Cold War, this rich tale still captivates with its spellbinding portrayal of the world of secret agents.

 

The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris

psychologicalthriller

 

An FBI agent is sent to interview a demented prisoner in hopes that the prisoner’s medical expertise will aid in profiling the man responsible for murders across the Midwest.

 

The Andromeda Strain by Michael Crichton

This first novel by Crichton still ranks as one of the top science fiction thrillers of all time. What could be creepier than microscopic killer germs run amok?

 

Now, if none of these titles appeal to you may I suggest Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, it’s the latest mystery novel to be adapted into a movie.

A wife’s disappearance plunges her husband into a nightmare as it rips open ugly secrets about their marriage and, just maybe, his culpability in her death.

 

Happy Halloween!
