THE BREAKDOWN by B.A. Paris
A Library Journal Spring 2017 Editors’ Pick with two starred reviews! A woman who believes she was a witness to a crime obsesses over whether she could have prevented a death, while fearing for her sanity. “This psychological thriller is even harder to put down than Paris’ 2016 best-seller debut [and LibraryReads pick] BEHIND CLOSED DOORS; schedule reading time accordingly. With two in a row, Paris moves directly to the thriller A-list.” — Booklist, starred review

DOWN A DARK ROAD by Linda Castillo
In the electrifying ninth thriller in the New York Times bestselling series (AMONG THE WICKED was a July 2016 LibraryReads pick), a convicted murderer is on the run and Chief of Police Kate Burkholder must catch him before he strikes again. “Castillo works in fine details and insight into Amish life, but this is no gentle read—there is plenty of tension and some good red herrings that will keep any mystery reader satisfied.” — Booklist

THE DARK DARK by Samantha Hunt
