Definition of "Thriller Genre": The thriller genre is very broad and can be difficult to define. However, the focus of a thriller ebook is typically on action, danger and suspense. The genre can be broken into an almost infinite number of sub-genres, including action thrillers (think Clive Cussler ebooks), romance thrillers, psychological thrillers (think Psycho by Hitchcock), science fiction thrillers, and spy thrillers, just to name a few. Common elements can include car chases, gun shoot outs, explosions, or in the case of psychological thrillers, the elements of danger can be related to the mental manipulation of characters by other characters. It is an expansive genre, and one of the most popular at eBookHounds.
Some examples of the best thriller authors and ebooks of all time: Dan Brown (The Da Vinci Code), Robert Ludlum (The Bourne Identity), Michael Crichton (The Andromeda Strain), John Grisham (Time to Kill), John D. MacDonald (Cape Fear); James Patterson (Kiss the Girls). As you can see, ebooks in the thriller category vary widely in their substance, and the sub-genres can almost be considered genres of their own!
A kidnapped baby. A mother’s will to find her. A killer targeting them both.
By USA Today best-selling author Pamela Crane comes a psychological thriller critics are calling "a literary ride that you'll sink your teeth into and savor until the last chilling page." Perfect for fans of Tess Gerritsen and C.J. Box.
Three years ago Tina Alvarez was trapped in a sex-trafficking ring. Three years ago she bore a daughter who was sold on the black market. But three years didn’t erase her tenacity to get her little girl back … and get even with the ones who took her.
When rookie private investigator Ari Wilburn accepts her first case to find Tina’s long-lost daughter, Ari unravels a mystery bigger than a missing child lead. A serial killer is targeting people close to her, and the key to who—and why—is buried deep in her past. As the investigation puts her in the killer’s crosshairs, Ari must decide between saving herself or guarding her family’s grisly secrets.
But for Ari it’s not easy being a savior. Bringing Tina’s daughter back means taking the child from the only family she knows. Is reuniting Tina with her little girl worth destroying this child’s life, and possibly her own?
A killer is watching. Plotting. Can Ari stop the death toll before she’s next?
A private investigator crime fiction story for fans of J.D. Robb, Brad Meltzer, and Melinda Leigh.
“An intensifying thriller and investigative mystery. Should a mother be reunited with her kidnapped child if the child is better off without her? The story raises interesting questions that will get you thinking. And the twist ending…you won’t see it coming. If you like I Am Watching You, Lies That Bind Us, or Sometimes I Lie, you’ll love The Death of Life.” – reader review

It doesn't take long for the mobsters to put a price on his head, and the first life Biggs will have to save is his own. Can the ranger save the innocent girls from sexual slavery or will a murderous cartel cut his retirement short?

What if a cop went rogue and killed an innocent man?

"Much like the script of an action-packed movie, Enemy in Blue will buffet you from one hair-raising scene to another -- and will always leave you pondering, who's the real enemy?" -L.Capritta
For anyone that craves an action-packed thriller and can't get their fill of Grisham, Koontz or Patterson...Enemy in Blue is your next escape!
"For action, body-count and digging into the underworld of police politics--this is really a great read. However, the best asset of the novel is the incredible drawing of the antagonist--the evil Sergeant Shaver really shines." -P.Weekly
Mackenzie Sutherland is shrouded in black at her most recent late husband’s funeral. Just get through this, she tells herself. Then on to a family meeting regarding the deceased’s will—which was recently altered to leave his three grown children with a paltry share of his multi-million dollar grocery enterprise. Mackenzie’s not-so despondent face might tell more observant onlookers she’s not exactly your typical grieving widow—but then, no one can see through her veil. This is by design. Alluring and dangerously attractive, she’s been down this road before.
Three times, in fact. In Dennis Carstens’ FIFTH hard-boiled legal thriller, we meet the classic black widow. All of Mackenzie’s late husbands were millionaires. Each died suddenly and quite mysteriously of massive heart attacks (in spite of no history of heart trouble). And each left their children with nothing—and their young, beautiful bride (of about a year or so) with millions.
No one can resist Mackenzie’s charm. Not her current family attorney, not even sharp, successful lawyer Marc Kadella—who considered Mac his first childhood crush and just happens to run into her at their high school reunion (at which both parties are conveniently minus a plus-one).
After every death, Mackenzie’s stepchildren balk at the measly inheritance left by their fathers. And every time, they vow to get their due—with no consequence. But this time is different. The Sutherland family suspects foul play, and might even have cause to bring their evil stepmother to court (thanks to a quick exhumation and toxic analysis).
If only they can keep themselves alive long enough to get that far…
Carstens’ thought-provoking legal thriller is ripe with the kind of perplexing ethical dilemma and crisp, realistic courtroom jargon fans of the genre adore—with a jarring dose of twists and turns to keep the pages turning. Personal Justice merges the fabled tale of a wicked black widow with a smart, blood-boiling legal romp. And we promise: you’ll never guess the ending.
Fans of lawyer mysteries, especially the action-packed ones and those heavy on courtroom drama with a twist, are in for a treat-- even Perry Mason’s got nothing on Marc Kadella.
For thirty years, Brendan Murphy has done the impossible. He has kept his client, Professor Edward Wynne Carter, III, alive on Virginia’s Death Row. Three juries have convicted Ed of murdering his pregnant wife in 1983, but Ed continues to insist that the real killer is Allison Byrd, the law student who stalked him relentlessly and whose lies sent him to Death Row. Now Ed’s execution is set for March 3, 2017, the day before his son Wynne’s marriage to Claire Chastain.
Mckenzie Fitzgerald, a name partner in Hugh Mahoney’s San Diego law firm, learns of Ed’s impending execution on the day that she also learns she has been nominated to the United States Supreme Court. She has evidence of Ed’s innocence, but her career will be destroyed and she will lose the nomination if she reveals it. Determined to save her career, she stubbornly insists Ed is guilty.
When Claire tries to help Brendan prove that Allison is the real killer, Allison makes an attempt on Claire’s life. Jeff Ryder steps in to protect Claire and agrees to help her find evidence that Allison killed Ed’s wife. But when Claire is kidnapped on her wedding day and Brendan has a heart attack, Jeff becomes responsible for saving Claire and Ed in the face of mounting evidence that Ed had both motive and opportunity to kill his wife.

“A Prize Plot.” -San Francisco Examiner
“A bright, light, cleverly written tale.” -Cincinnati Post
HE KNOWS TOO MUCH—BUT HE DOESN'T KNOW WHAT HE KNOWS…
Things were going lousy for ex-reporter Paul Mcdonald: No money, no girl friend, no bright new career as a mystery novelist … and then along came private investigator Jack Birnbaum with an offer: he’d detect, and Paul would write the client reports. It wasn’t much, but it would keep Spot the cat in Kitty Queen tidbits.
But then somebody poisoned Jack in Paul’s own living room. A day that begins with a body in your house really ought to get better, but next comes burglary and after that, assault-by-cop. And Paul’s got a feeling that’s just the beginning. There must have been something someone didn't want him to know in one of those client reports. But what?
The wise-cracking, funny, but slightly depressed ex-journalist better become an ace private investigator in about two seconds—or end up like his detective mentor.
Birnbaum's last report concerned a kidnapped child, so Paul begins there. The trail leads him to the laboratory of a Nobel laureate geneticist, and then to San Francisco City Hall, where an extremely nasty surprise awaits. But there’s an upside—lovely witness Sardis Kincannon. Nothing like falling in love while you’re running for your life!
The FIRST Paul Mcdonald P.I. mystery by the Edgar-winning author of the Skip Langdon series
“One more blithe San Fran outing with a likeable journalist-sleuth by the name of Paul Mcdonald … Smith improves with each story and this is her best to date.” -Kirkus Reviews
The San Francisco Bay Area shines here, as does the author's wit and humor.
Fans of CASTLE, MURDER SHE WROTE, even ELLERY QUEEN will enjoy this fast-paced and funny take on the mystery-writer-as-detective. As will people who like their male sleuths wry, witty, and a little on the soft-boiled side—fans of Parnell Hall’s Stanley Hastings, say, Tony Dunbar’s Tubby Dubonnet, Gregory Mcdonald’s Fletch (this Mcdonald, it's worth noting, is Paul’s personal hero), Lawrence Block’s Bernie Rhodenbarr, and especially Rex Stout’s Archie Goodwin. Female sleuths with a sense of humor remind us of him too—for instance, Criminal Minds’ Penelope Garcia and the immortal Amelia Peabody (of whom he’d be terrified if they ever met).
"I'm coming for you. You will never escape me."
She's the most dangerous inmate in the hospital for the criminally insane...and she just broke out. Get the series: Red Angel(#2) and Night Cage (#3). When Trey Campbell takes his family to Catalina Island, his escaped patient leaves a trail of bodies behind as she hunts for her one true love – from a previous life.
A gripping psychological thriller full of page-turning suspense and mind-bending horror for fans of James Patterson, Gillian Flynn, and Robert Bryndza.

From The Authors:
Writing about RN Gina Mazzio and her boyfriend, RN Harry Lucke, has been a fun experience. It's also a privilege to tell about characters who dedicate their lives to helping others. Many of the people our protagonists work with (as in real life) spend each and every day, perhaps not with murder, but certainly in pain, distress, and danger. We hope most of our books bring the positive recognition that nurses deserve.

An action-packed unraveling of the secrets of ancient history mixed in with a chilling conspiracy that brings to mind Dan Brown’s bestseller INFERNO.
“Swigart is one of the few thriller writers with a poetic sense … [who] knows how to give high velocity to an action mystery.” -San Francisco Chronicle
Papyrologist Lisa Emmer’s world flips when the Surete meets her at her Metro station with news of the savage murder of the esteemed Paris historian Dr. Raimond Foix, her friend and mentor in the study of ancient documents. Horrified, Lisa finds clues at the crime scene left behind for her by her mentor—clues to a secret kept hidden for centuries. These clues make her a prime suspect in the murder investigation, and also put her directly in the cross-hairs of a deadly commando group that proves to be none other than a contemporary offshoot of the Inquisition.
They want an ancient document that reveals a secret so explosive it could change the world—a document they’ve been tracking for centuries. Led by a sadistic priest and a vicious but very accomplished nun with excellent military cred, their mission is to destroy the document—no matter what the cost in blood.
Desperate to clear her name and to stay alive, with the help of a handsome yet mysterious banker, Lisa must solve the clues and uncover the millennia-old secret before her adversaries can find and destroy it. Since she was a child Lisa had suffered from uncontrollable fugue states. Now she discovers just in time that what she always thought was a liability may in fact be an almost paranormal ability to see things in ways others cannot. The trail leads everywhere from ancient cemeteries and tombs throughout France to Istanbul and Greece, as Lisa and Steve desperately stay one step ahead of their enemies, solving the clues to a dangerous treasure hunt their lives now depend upon.
A must-read for fans of Steve Berry, Dan Brown and Raymond Khoury!

Wrath - The Lieutenant Harrington Series, Book 1
Miami homicide lieutenant Nash Harrington has seen countless murders. Blood and bodies are nothing to lose sleep over.
Yet what seems to be a run-of-the-mill murder stemming from infidelity turns into a full-blown killing spree.
For this killer, taking the lives of his wife and her lover is merely the beginning. He’ll take the deceit no more. His decision has been made. All the women who've wronged him in the past will die.

Unknown to the lieutenant, one of his loved ones has a history with the killer. And that history is etched in the killer’s mind.
The THIRD book in Edgar-winner Julie Smith's Rebecca Schwartz series.
"Warmth, wit and local color in a fast-moving story ... Smith's best work so far." -Kirkus
So what’s a nice Jewish girl doing at an Easter sunrise service?
Lawyer Rebecca Schwartz would pick the one with the body nailed to the landmark cross! Coincidence? Not so much. She's there because her boy friend's covering the service for the San Francisco Chronicle. The body's there because someone's making a statement he doesn't want the press to miss.
Next: mass shellfish poisoning at Pier 39. A very different kind of serial killer is operating here—one who seems to have a grudge against the whole city.
And this is a very different kind of serial killer tale—a funny one. (If your don't count the murders, or course.) Rebecca's warm and witty, never takes herself too seriously, and on one occasion offers closing testimony with green hair. A highly embarrassing moment, but the bright chartreuse is all in the service of making her case.
No way does she believe her client would nail somebody—especially to a cross. And the things she has to do to prove it are hilarious and often unorthodox, yet always professional. Sometimes hyper-professional--the average lawyer simply can’t be bothered spraying herself with Thunderbird to fit in with her witnesses!
A wild ride through Baghdad by the Bay…and a great courtroom drama.
They woke up in the trunk of a car,
with no idea where they were,
Imagine THE BOURNE IDENTITY meets THE FIRM.
"Exciting from beginning to end!" --Sandra L. Whaley
"I like this author!!" --Connie L. Scheible
"Kept me turning pages until the sun came up!" --Mike Mellor
TWO BLOOD-SPATTERED STRANGERS awake, locked in the trunk of a car--with a murdered cop and the smoking gun. Aside from raging headaches and no idea what's happened, they appear to have nothing in common. Troy thinks it's 2001 and he's still a combat surgeon fighting terrorists in Afghanistan. Emmy believes it's 2002 and she's still grifting a living from the streets of L.A.
Are they archenemies or coconspirators? Lovers or friends? What are they doing in the Caribbean, and why is a Croatian assassin determined to kill them? The only thing they know for certain is that they'll be spending the rest of their lives in prison if the police catch them before they learn the truth.
If you enjoy David Baldacci, Lee Child, Tom Clancy, Nelson DeMille, Ken Follett, Vince Flynn, Andrew Peterson, Daniel Silva, Brad Taylor, or Brad Thor, odds are you'll be smiling a few pages into my books as well.

This is the SECOND paranormal mystery in the Kate Benedict series.
SOMEONE’S GOING TO DIE--AND IT COULD BE THE NEW PRIME MINISTER. OR MAYBE KATE'S BEST FRIEND IN THE WORLD!
Two politicians and her best friend have the death-predicting auras London architect Kate Benedict can see despite her most fervent wishes. She’s had the dubious gift for a year now, and suddenly there’s no longer any ignoring it.
But the only way to get to the two pols is via her old friend, DCI Clarke; yet her warnings go unheeded. Her frustration builds when her best friend, Anita, refuses to believe in their existence as well — even when one appears over Anita’s boss in the hospital where she works. And then Anita develops her own aura.
A wild chase through seamy and posh London, clever detection, and an intricate plot make this paranormal mystery appealing to cozy and hard-boiled fans alike. In DOUBLE BLIND, the early promise Carrie Bedford showed in THE AURA is not only fulfilled, but even blooms and grows more sure-footed.
Double Blind is sure to delight fans of traditional British murder mysteries as well as anyone who likes female sleuths and international mysteries.
WHO ELSE WILL LIKE IT: Anyone looking for a new, fresh female sleuth, as well as fans of paranormal suspense, traditional (yet not too cozy) stories, contemporary British women detectives like the ones found on the BBC’s ROSEMARY AND THYME and MURDER IN SUBURBIA, and mysteries with a metaphysical twist, like Kay Hooper’s Bishop Files series, Iris Johansen’s THE PERFECT WITNESS, and Heather Graham’s Krewe of Hunters books.
"Double Blind is a cozy mystery with intense characters who struggle in a world of pharmaceutical intrigue with political twists. Author Carrie Bedford writes with a high suspenseful flair and creates an engaging protagonist, Kate Benedict. Paranormal elements mix with murders, kidnappings, and a dash of romance, all racing through an unusual and satisfying plot. A fast read, well-written, and thoroughly enjoyable."
--Paula Cappa, author of The Dazzling Darkness
