Give Me Your Hand by Megan Abbott

Edgar award winner Megan Abbott is wonderful at portraying doomed female friendships with the sizzling tension usually reserved for forbidden romances. This claustrophobic psychological thriller examines the way a dark secret between two old high school friends re-emerges when they reunite as adults, threatening to tip them both into insanity. Just like the high school friend your mother didn’t approve of, this book will shock you, make you cackle, and get under your skin. - Ilana

The Marsh King's Daughter by Karen Dionne

Helena didn’t know she was a prisoner until she was 12. Raised in a remote marsh in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, she spent her childhood shadowing her father, who taught her how to track and hunt like their Native Americans ancestors. Decades later, Helena must use these same skills to track her father, who has escaped from prison and is looking to kidnap again. I was immediately enthralled by Dionne’s thrilling and atmospheric storytelling and read this book in a single sitting. - Jade

Watch Me Disappear by Janelle Brown

A tantalizing blend of investigative thriller and introspection into what it really means to know those you love. This is a perfect thriller of a beach read (even more appropriate as the opening scene is set at the beach!). The strong writing and exciting twists and turns make this a very enjoyable mystery and a great read if you loved Gone Girl or The Woman in Cabin 10. - Megan

The Good Son by You-Jeong Jeong

Suspense fans rejoice! You-jeong Jeong is a master in the genre, translated into English for the first time here. Reading The Good Son, I had the thrilling, stomach-lurching sensation of realizing I had been led somewhere I wasn’t quite expecting, yet the unfolding truth at the heart of the book is chillingly convincing. From the opening scene, when Yu Min wakes inexplicably encrusted in blood from head to toe, this is a gripping, discomforting read. - Ilana
