Must-read thrillers/suspense

C. B. St Hilaire
The list author says: "I've read some truly terrible suspense novels. I always finish them (no matter how bad they are) but I've found myself thinking--where was the plot? Who were the characters? How did that even get published!? Here are a list of books that really make the cut. Good plot, great characters to love, and the sortof genius required to write a good thriller. It takes a lot for me to give a mystery a thumbs up."
Blood Memory: A Novel
Blood Memory: A Novel
"This was the first Greg Iles book I read and I was immediately hooked. It is still my favorite of his. I think he is brilliant."
Dead Sleep
Dead Sleep
"Oh brace yourself.  This one is really creepy. It will give you goosebumps."
The Devil's Punchbowl (Penn Cage, Book 3)
The Devil's Punchbowl (Penn Cage, Book 3)
"A wild ride with many twists and turns.  Penn Cage is really a loveable character."
The Surgeon (with Bonus Content): A Rizzoli & Isles Novel
The Surgeon (with Bonus Content): A Rizzoli & Isles Novel
"I read this and became hooked on the Rizzoli and Isles series by Gerritsen.  I think I read them all in the span of about a month--they are that good. I now am one of those people that pre-order her new books long before they publish."
The Bone Garden: A Novel
The Bone Garden: A Novel
"This is very different from her more current novels (such as Rizzoli & Isles).  I thought it was incredible.  Part historical fiction, part thriller--this was the epitome of a page-turner."
Dark Places
Dark Places
"I've never read such a dark, disturbing thriller."
Sacred: A Novel (Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro Series)
Sacred: A Novel (Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro Series)
"Absolutely the best of the Kensie & Gennaro series (Gone Baby Gone is another title in this series that you may have heard of).  What makes this seris great is the characters (Angela & Patrick) and the intensity of the stories."
