As lockdown-like restrictions are back in my city, books and paintings are the only thing keeping me occupied.
For this month’s recommendation, I have a set of four nail-biting thrillers for you.
The Good Neighbour by R.J. Parker
Imagine your car breaks down after hitting a deer. You see a light in the house nearby and approach it, asking the owner to help you call the tow truck. The next day, you decide to take a nice bottle of wine as a thank you gesture. But as you reach the house, you see a couple of police cars. The owner of the house is murdered. The one you met last night… was the killer! Sounds creepy? This is the story of Leah Talbot. Poor thing crashed her car and the next day, her whole life came crashing down. Leah ends up being the killer’s latest muse…
Stolen Daughters by Carolyn Arnold
Firefighters discover a burned body of a teenager in an abandoned house. A witness called in 911 and stopped the house from burning down to ashes. The killer is angry.

Detective Amanda Steele receives a note from the killer, telling her he’s done the right thing by killing ‘bad people’.
