I could really go for a good thriller to read. I am looking for something that I wont want to put down and will keep me on the edge of my seat as I read.

Someone recently suggested I read Dean Koontz's Mr. Murder and/ or The Watchers. I thought the Watchers was incredibly boring and I tried getting into Mr. Murder but after about 75 pages or so ( I know that isn't enough to tell ) I was bored silly. Maybe I just don't like his writing.

Anyway, I was hoping I could get some suggestions on some great thriller books to read! If you could include a brief synopsis that would be great!

Thanks in advance!

Try A Study in Red: The Secret Journal of Jack The Ripper by Brian L. Porter. I assure you the edge of your chair is where you'll be.

Check out, "They Never Die Quietly". There are only 17 reader reviews but everyone says it's a page-turner.

Hello Jennifer,
If you like TECHNOthrillers--I recommend America on her Knees by Steven A Buckman! It's a real page turner and has the first woman president to boot! Give it a look, Denise

Check out "McGowan's Retreat" by Rob Smith for a roller coaster of a a roller coaster, you go up the hill and then down and around curves and twists and turns. Not a traditional whodunit, but definitely some thrills and chills along the way. It's about the current events of the financial meltdown and the effect it has upon some of the is worth the read.

Try the Revenge of the Sisterhood series by Fern Michaels. The books should be read in order. Go to This site will tell you the sequence.

Have you ever read Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, Joel Rosenberg, David Baldacci, Olen Steinhauer or actually any of the old Tom Clancy books? Flynn is one author I highly recommend

Sin & Vengeance is a true page-turner. You can download the entire book free as a pdf at

Check out the reviews and you'll see excellent reviews going back to 2005. The book was also optioned for film in 2008.

Walk Me to Midnight
by Jane St. Clair

I just finished this book by a first-time author which kept me up all night. It is not only a great suspense novel, but a social commentary on the American way of death and assisted suicide. Don't let the Christian publisher push you away from Walk Me to Midnight. It's not religious, but more New Age. Parts are hysterically funny too.

Texas Girl says:
If you've never read Robert Ludlum, any of his are spellbinding. Don't judge the Bourne series by the movies. The premise in the most general of terms is all that you can compare. Jason Bourne wakes up with amnesia, and everytime he finds a piece of information that may lead to him finding out who he is, someone tries to kill him and he learns that he has skills that frighten him. What he learns makes him think he is the kind of man he doesn't like, but there are too many inconsistencies. So the book is all about him unraveling the truth without getting himself or the woman he has "kidnapped" killed.

Nelson Demille also writes unbelievable page turners. Catherdral has to do with IRA terrorists in NY, By the Rivers of Babylon has to do with Mid-East terrorists (pre 9/11), Medal of Honor is the story of a Viet Nam vet dealing with a Me Lei type event. Was he in on it or not? The Gold Coast is about how a normal Long Island lawyer gets sucked into the life of a Mafia Don who moves into the neighborhood. The Gate House is it's sequel. The Charm School is set before the fall of the Iron Curtain and explores the idea that the Russians took some of our soldiers that were captured during WWII, Korea, and Viet Nam and set them up in a town that looked just like an American town and made them train Russian spies to pass for Americans.
