The Ignored by Bentley Little

[GOODREADS]

Genre: Horror, Thriller

Many horror stories are about loners or misfits, but The Ignored is about a man who is so average, who fits into society so well, he disappears from view. In a harrowing progression reminiscent of an episode from Twilight Zone, Bob Jones drifts into a state where his co-workers can’t see him, his friends don’t recognize him, his parents die and he’s not even invited to the funeral. Then he joins up with others of “the Ignored,” a tiny minority in their own pocket of reality who validate each other in their mediocrity.

Where Are the Children? by Mary Higgins Clark

[GOODREADS]

Genre: Mystery, Thriller

Neeve Kearny may be the only person in New York worried about the disappearance of Ethel Lambston.

Ethel, a bestselling author famous for her juicy exposÉs, is one of the best customers at Neeve’s exclusive Madison Avenue boutique. But Ethel’s ex-husband, her parasitical nephew, and the fashion moguls skewered in her latest article all have reason to be glad she’s no longer around.

When Ethel Lambston is found with her throat cut, Neeve’s memories of her mother’s long-unsolved murder loom up once again. Now, as an innocent witness in the Lambston investigation, Neeve is drawn into a new nightmare … a sinister labyrinth of greed and ambition that will lead her into mortal danger.

Mice by Gordon Reece

[GOODREADS]

Genre: Thriller, Mystery

Shelley and her mom have been menaced long enough. Excused from high school where a trio of bullies nearly killed her, and still reeling from her parents’ humiliating divorce, Shelley has retreated with her mother to the quiet of Honeysuckle Cottage in the countryside. Thinking their troubles are over, they revel in their cozy, secure life of gardening and books, hot chocolate and Brahms by the fire. But on the eve of Shelley’s sixteenth birthday, an unwelcome guest disturbs their peace and something inside Shelley snaps. What happens next will shatter all their certainties-about their safety, their moral convictions, the limits of what they are willing to accept, and what they’re capable of.

Contest by Mathew Reilly

[GOODREADS]

Genre: Thriller

The New York Public Library. A silent sanctuary of knowledge; a 100-year-old labyrinth of towering bookcases, narrow aisles and long marble hallways. For Doctor Stephen Swain and his daughter, Holly, it is the site of a nightmare. Because for one night this historic building is to be the venue for a contest. A contest in which Swain is to compete - whether he likes it or not. The rules are simple: Seven contestants will enter, only one will leave.

With his daughter in his arms, Stephen Swain is plunged into a terrifying fight for survival. The stakes are high, the odds brutal. He can choose to run, to hide or to fight - but if he wants to live, he has to win. For in this contest, unless you leave as the victor, you do not leave at all.

» Homelanders by Andrew Klavan «

{GOODREADS}

Charlie West just woke up in someone else’s nightmare. He’s strapped to a chair. He’s covered in blood and bruises. He hurts all over. And a strange voice outside the door just ordered his death.

The last thing he can remember, he was a normal high-school kid doing normal things—working on his homework, practicing karate, daydreaming of becoming an air force pilot, writing a pretty girl’s number on his hand. How long ago was that? Where is he now? Who is he really? And more to the point … how is he going to get out of this room alive?

» All Around the Town by Mary Higgins Clark «

{GOODREADS}

Professor Alan Grant is found stabbed to death in his New Jersey home. All the evidence points to an obsessed student, 21 year-old Laurie Kenyon, who sent him passionate letters, followed him, even watched him through his study window—-and awakens in her door room, covered with Grant’s blood and clutching the knife that killed him. Attorney Sarah Kenyon, Laurie’s sister, alone understands Laurie’s daily nightmare and the trauma left by a childhood kidnapping too hideous too be recalled. Laurie’s abductors, now a prominent televangelist and his wife, fear she will start to remember her life with them. And her past must be kept buried at all costs—-even if it means carrying out the murderous threat made to a terrified girl years ago..

» The Guards by Ken Bruen «

{GOODREADS}

Still stinging from his unceremonious ouster from the Garda Síochána—the Guards, Ireland’s police force—and staring at the world through the smoky bottom of his beer mug, Jack Taylor is stuck in Galway with nothing to look forward to. In his sober moments Jack aspires to become Ireland’s best private investigator, not to mention its first—Irish history, full of betrayal and espionage, discourages any profession so closely related to informing. But in truth Jack is teetering on the brink of his life’s sharpest edges, his memories of the past cutting deep into his soul and his prospects for the future nonexistent.

Nonexistent, that is, until a dazzling woman walks into the bar with a strange request and a rumor about Jack’s talent for finding things. Odds are he won’t be able to climb off his barstool long enough to get involved with his radiant new client, but when he surprises himself by getting hired, Jack has little idea of what he’s getting into.

» All Unquiet Things by Anna Jarzab «

{GOODREADS}

Carly: She was sweet. Smart. Self-destructive. She knew the secrets of Brighton Day School’s most privileged students. Secrets that got her killed.

Neily: Dumped by Carly for a notorious bad boy, Neily didn’t answer the phone call she made before she died. If he had, maybe he could have helped her. Now he can’t get the image of her lifeless body out of his mind.

Audrey: She’s the reason Carly got tangled up with Brighton’s fast crowd in the first place, and now she regrets it—especially since she’s convinced the police have put the wrong person in jail. Audrey thinks the murderer is someone at Brighton, and she wants Neily to help her find out who it is.

As reluctant allies Neily and Audrey dig into their shared past with Carly, her involvement with Brighton’s dark goings-on comes to light. But figuring out how Carly and her killer fit into the twisted drama will force Audrey and Neily to face hard truths about themselves and the girl they couldn’t save.
