Now for a super-sized bunch of #ThrillerThursday reads:

FORCE OF NATURE by Jane Harper
A February 2018 LibraryReads & Indie Next pick and one of Elle‘s “Best Books to Read This Winter!” When a whistleblower goes missing on a corporate team-building hike, Agent Aaron Falk must uncover secrets and betrayals among friends to find out what happened in this new thriller from the New York Times bestselling and LibraryReads author of THE DRY. “…[Harper] manages to match her debut’s intensity with another riveting, tension-driven thriller. Perfect for fans of Tana French and readers who enjoy literary page-turners.” — Booklist, starred review

THE LEGACY by Yrsa Sigurdardottir
Two starred reviews! “This complex, character-driven procedural, the first in a new series from Sigurdardóttir, whose recent efforts have been supernatural-tinged thrillers, is powerfully rooted in buried secrets of childhood trauma. Recommended for fans of Tana French and Camilla Läckberg.” — Booklist, starred review

A DANGEROUS CROSSING by Ausma Zehanat Khan
Two starred reviews! “This fourth in the series is a complex global thriller lifted to bar-raising heights by Khan’s thoughtful (and timely) exploration of the tragedies and dangers that refugees face.” — Booklist, starred review

THIS FALLEN PREY by Kelley Armstrong
In the third installment of bestselling author Armstrong’s Rockton thriller series (CITY OF THE LOST was a May 2016 LibraryReads pick), Casey Duncan must discover who inside the off-the-grid town is acting as a dangerous criminal’s accomplice. “The third Rockton novel is perhaps the best yet. A crisply written thriller that keeps readers guessing….” — Booklist

GIRL UNKNOWN by Karen Perry
When a young woman appears in David Connolly’s university office and says, “I think you might be my father,” the Connollys may have a chance to expand their family and how much they can love—or they may be making themselves vulnerable to menace. “Writing duo Karen Gillece and Paul Perry’s second novel (after THE INNOCENT SLEEP, 2014), is must-read literary suspense, with dueling character perspectives and sly twists forming a gut-wrenching exploration of trust, manipulation, and obsession.” — Booklist, starred review

THE PLEA by Steve Cavanagh
Two starred reviews! In this sequel to THE DEFENSE, con-artist-turned-lawyer Eddie Flynn has an innocent client, a guilty wife, and only a few days to save them both. “This is perfect for anyone who likes a locked-room mystery wrapped inside a legal thriller on steroids.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review readmoreremove

Adult Books for Teens or So Sayeth Booklist (And We Agree!)

Gypsy Moth Summer by Julia Fierro

“YAs will get caught up in the story of Maddie and the other teen characters as they face complex social and environmental problems.”–Booklist

Trophy Son by Douglas Brunt

“YAs will enjoy the unpredictability of Anton’s rise to the top of the tennis world and his struggle to stay there, along with Brunt’s use of text messaging instead of dialogue.”–Booklist

All the Dirty Parts by Daniel Handler

“Amusing yet genuine, lustful yet sensitive, this odd novella approaches teenage horniness seriously and, in the process, touches on important subjects such as sexism, consent, and sexual identity…Although some scenes are graphic, Handler’s young fan base and Cole’s adolescent viewpoint will naturally draw in teens.”–Booklist

Nights of the Living Dead: An Anthology edited by Jonathan Maberry + George Romero

“With YA stalwart Maberry at the helm, this collection will get the veritable horde of teen zombie fans salivating.”–Booklist
