Pretty Maidens All In a Row. Here's the synopsis.Mary Elizabeth Grange, also known as Beth to her friends and family, leads a happy, normal life in the small town of Oceanview, Florida. An only child, she has everything that she would ever want or need.This includes the love of everyone that surrounds her, even her music teacher, Jack Ashton. Though he is ten years older than her,he notices her and can't stop himself from falling in love with young Beth. He remains professional and is nothing but her teacher, adoring her from afar.
Then she is noticed. Her lanky, developing body and her childlike ways do nothing to dissuade his hungry eyes and his needy imagination. She glides through life happily but to him she becomes everything. Every flip of her long curly ebony hair, every smile, every gesture speaks to him as he quietly moves in the shadows. Richard's small, inconsequential world narrows even further. Real life recedes and fantasy, like a blazing fire, consumes him.Unbeknownst to her, he follows, taking pictures and taping them to his shabby walls. She becomes his whole world as he is drawn into deeper psychosis with the voice in his head slyly advising him, telling him what to do in order to achieve his ultimate goal.
He jealously looks on as she forms relationships, hating her best friend and believing that she as well as everyone around her is poisoning her. He dreams of rescuing her from all of the `evil forces' that surround her. He fantasizes of buying a sports car and driving up to her and he has no doubt that she will willingly step inside and be with him.He knows,she will love him then and give herself to him, and she will be his forever.
When his many pictures in his locked room are discovered by his drug
dealer brother, the ensuing teasing gets ugly and the normally docile Richard explodes into a murderous rage. After his brother is dead, Richard discovers his stash of drug money, which much to his glee,opens up opportunity for all of his dreams to come true.
Richard's and Beth's worlds collide in one brutal and obscene act as he brazenly flings reality aside and allows the delusions to totally devour him. By pure accident Jack, tries to intervene, is badly injured but gets help.
Her world destroyed, Beth must fight for her very sanity. Then at the farthest end of her nightmare and many miles away, happiness and normalcy are finally within her reach. Living in Newfoundland, Canada, she is older, in nursing school, and finally in love with her beloved teacher, who now lives In New York City.
Much to her bemusement, she starts to receive flowers from a secret admirer. Things start to take on a darker tone and she senses anything but affection from the gifts being left to her. Unbeknownst to her, Jack is receiving packages also and when she finally discovers this,a macabre picture starts to form.One which ties her to a vicious serial killer in her home state who is slaying young women. All of which look enough like her to be her sisters.
Sensing the killer is getting nearer by the day,Beth, with the help of her fiance and a New York city cop, who is his older brother, must go back. Go back not only to her home state of Florida, but also to that day so long ago to face demons from the past. To face the person who is killing her over and over. To find the man who hates her enough to carve the name of the nursery rhyme that her father always sang to her on the bodies of the slain girls. For she will be the last pretty maiden that he will hunt......

Check first time author Ralph H Perkins. He wrote a Mystery/Thriller titled Treatment. It got some great reviews and I really enjoyed it.

I also really like the prey series by John Standford. I also like Robin Cook's medical thrillers.

I just read a brand new medical thriller by Kathleen Dove. Always check the new releases. I am going to write a review later tonight for it. It was really good and well-written. The characters were so real. There are a few big surprises in it. It is a first book in a new series. I don't know how may books are in it, but there is an author website on the back of the book. Almost forgot. Title is Condition Unknown Book One: The Path to Revenge

I really liked Nocturne, Opus 1: Sea Foam by Norene Moskalski, a debut author. A really unique plot and ending--refreshing!

Can't believe no one has mentioned Preston and Child yet. Relic is the first in there Pendergast series. They've also written several together that aren't part of that series The Ice Limit is the first one that comes to mind and they've written separately too. Also, less well known is Steve Alten Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror is the first of his I read but I've read them all!

Child 44 is good, as is Shutter Island.
The Devil May Care, Meaning Of Theft or Whiteout are all quality thrillers

But some of my fav's have to be the Alex Cross thrillers (I think 'Along Came a Spider' is the best of them)

I love it when you read a good thriller you just want more!

Lee Child's Jack Reacher series is who you want.
Also: Thomas Harris, John le Carre and Dennis Lehane.

The four greatest thriller authors in the world.

I will have to agree with a couple others, Tanya French and James Patterson. I have started reading the Alex Cross series and it is WAY better than the movie....

A new author, Bruce Bradley, has written a great first novel called "Fat Profits." This is a thriller with a realistic background and the tension and excitement builds through the entire book. It is available here on and I have posted a review of the book on its page.
