One of Us Knows: A Thriller by Alyssa Cole

Oh, this hooked me so quickly. Kenetria Nash is seven different people in one head and, in turns, body, with dissociative identity disorder likely caused by childhood trauma none of them remember—much like the situation they’re in now. As the plot thickens, they must decide who to trust—both outside and within themselves—while confronting monsters past and present and fighting to survive. This unique, potent thriller is a fantastic follow-up to Alyssa Cole’s When No One Is Watching, while standing entirely on its own.  —Jocelyn

The Last Murder at the End of the World by Stuart Turton

This new thriller by Stuart Turton took me by surprise! I am a fan of his earlier mystery/sci-fi The 7 1⁄2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle, and was expecting a similar genre blend. This time, Turton delivers a mystery within a speculative future in which a mysterious deadly fog has plagued Earth and the last remaining colony of survivors is run by an overseeing, god-like AI. This, plus Turton’s innate ability to create complex storylines, make it a nonstop read.  —Nikole

The London Séance Society by Sarah Penner

The London Séance Society is an atmospheric Victorian–era mystery that draws readers into a world of séances, society clubs, and plenty of hidden secrets. Blending historical details with elements of the paranormal, Sarah Penner takes readers on a twisty journey into a world where the line between the living and the dead is delightfully blurred and those who use false methods get what they deserve.  —Kristina

The Noh Mask Murder by Akimitsu Takagi, translated by Jesse Kirkwood

Originally published in 1950, Akitmitsu Takagi’s The Noh Mask Murder now appears in a new English translation, giving Western audiences a second stand-alone novel to devour from this Japanese mystery writer. The story tracks a race between the revelation of secrets and the mysterious deaths of the family who has held the secrets. A classic murder mystery that will immediately evoke Agatha Christie and Arthur Conan Doyle for Western readers while taking darker yet wry turns all its own.  —Jocelyn

Missing White Woman by Kellye Garrett

I absolutely sped through this one! Kellye Garrett delivers a twisty, propulsive mystery whose deft foreshadowing does nothing to spoil an absolutely crazy plot that touches on everything from police racism to best friend backstabbing to the kaleidoscopic possibility of social media in a divided world. I know I came up with about half a dozen different theories about the story’s culprit, but I was still surprised by the end! —Yves

My Murder: A Novel by Katie Williams

My Murder flips the whodunnit on its head, and it’s such smart, speculative, feminist fun! Lou is many things—a professional, a wife, and a mother—but is also the victim of a serial killer recently cloned back to life through a government project. This second chance seems like a blessing, but it’s not all adding up, and now she must become the detective of her own murder. I was hooked from the start and enjoyed every moment of suspense, every twist and turn, and all the ways it made me think. —Melinda

Listen for the Lie: A Novel by Amy Tintera

This edgy thriller hooked me from the beginning and never let go. Sex, lies, and a true-crime podcast converge in a mystery narrated with wicked dark humor. Fascinating, although unreliable, characters provide a surprising number of laugh-out-loud moments. Grandma may be the best grandma ever. I found myself guessing wrong through the many twists and turns until the final reveal. This is a well-written, fun, very entertaining read.

The Hunter by Tana French

Tana French has a special way of mixing beautiful Irish settings, detailed character development, and murder into a well-rounded literary thriller. Some of the best elements of her latest intriguing, slow-burn mystery are the dialogue and the character dynamics. This is the second book in the Cal Hooper series, but not having read The Searcher, I did not feel lost while reading The Hunter. If you have access to Libro.fm, this is a great book to listen to! Highly recommended!
