What do unsolved mysteries, murder investigations, and true crime all have in common? They make for fantastic thriller books that reading fanatics can’t put down. Thrillers and mystery novels have been a genre favorite for decades - and there's a good reason why. These suspenseful novels are full of well-developed characters, intricate storylines, and, perhaps most important, a plot that’s full of twists and turns to keep readers on the edge of their seats. 

Thrillers are a genre of fiction literature that is often characterized by dark, twisting plots, excitement, fear, and more. While there are many subgenres of thrillers, the goal of the author is typically to keep the reader in suspense and guessing what comes next. Mystery novels make up a similar fiction genre to thrillers but traditionally follow an investigative storyline. Oftentimes, the reader is presented with the characters and works alongside the protagonist to figure out who the real suspect is. The exhilarating search to uncover the truth is what makes these novels true page-turners that readers won’t be able to put down.
