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 web of lies and dark secrets. A nail-biting hunt for a serial killer.
For over twenty years, Detective Stella Carrigan has managed to bury the nightmare of being kidnapped from her foster family. Her traumatic childhood motivated her to stand up for others and climb the Chicago Police Department ladder by storm. But when Stella is called to a series of murders of women in the sleepy small town of Vandalia, the past abruptly catches up with her - and brings her to the edge of the abyss.
The killer leaves seemingly unrelated clues with each body: A lock of hair, rosebuds, sewing thread - none of the investigators can make sense of any of it. But with each victim, Stella pieces together a picture of horror that brings a terrible suspicion to light: Is this all the handwriting of her tormentor from her childhood? Are the crime scene clues hidden messages that only she can decipher?
Stella must not only face the biggest case of her career, but also the demons of her own past. In the process, one thing becomes clear: the small town of Vandalia has its very own secrets. Dark, murderous secrets. And everyone who tries to uncover them finds themselves in great danger...

“Please find me, Thomas! Please!”
Two years ago, Dr. Gina Brady broke Thomas Prescott’s heart, but now her panic-stricken satellite phone call starts it beating again with a fury. Thugs kidnapped the good doctor from the remote jungle village where she was working, and now the retired homicide detective’s expert skills are desperately needed to save her.
Led by a colorful, but perhaps untrustworthy local guide, Prescott journeys deep into the Bolivian Amazon, plunging into a world where the only thing more dangerous than the gun-toting drug traffickers and the ruthless tribesmen, is the jungle itself.
When Gina’s trail leads to a chance encounter with an archaeological expedition, the search for the missing doctor takes on even deadlier consequences. But Prescott will not relent in this punishing quest until, once again, he holds Gina in his arms.

“The women you used, the ones you destroyed, we are still here, and there are many of us. And now, we’re coming for you.”
FBI-profiler Eva Rae Thomas faces a devious plan in multi-million-copy bestselling author Willow Rose’s blood-rushing thriller of murder and revenge.
A girl falls from the penthouse floor of an apartment in Washington, D.C.
Media Mogul Richard Wanton owns the apartment and is seen standing on the balcony when the girl falls.
He is accused of killing her, but the FBI struggles to find enough solid evidence to convict him.
They have a witness, someone who was in the apartment when it happened, but she doesn’t want to talk to them.
She’ll only speak to one person, ex-FBI profiler Eva Rae Thomas. The problem is, Eva Rae Thomas has no interest in talking to her.
As a matter of fact, she’d rather see this woman dead than have to face her.
But Eva Rae Thomas isn’t someone who can leave a case alone, especially not when she starts to ask questions and things aren’t adding up.
As she digs in deeper—with the entire world watching—she soon finds herself in too deep and realizes she can’t trust anyone’s motives.
But by then, it is too late, and the killer is already tracking her down.
Reviews from Goodreads:
⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ The plotline was fresh, original, and exciting and definitely kept the twists, turns, and surprises coming. The characters were complex, completely polarizing, and full of depth.

⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ What a delight to read a book with such great twists! Truly holds a reader's interest.
This is a dark story because it's a dark subject and many kudos to Willow Rose for tackling it. Especially when you learn that it's based on her own experience! Rape is much more common than we would realize, and I agree with the author that this story needed to be told.
⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ “The women you used, the ones you destroyed, we are still here, and there are many of us. And now, we’re coming for you.”- Quote from the book.
Eva Rae is pulled into a dangerous situation once again... An unsavory acquaintance, from a devastating relationship in Eva Rae's past, comes back to haunt Eva Rae when she's contacted regarding an ongoing homicide investigation. Her refusal to assist becomes the catalyst for what follows…
A dark, intense thriller that will leave you in suspense until the very end!
⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ Based on a true and painful story of sexual abuse of women by powerful men.
I was totally immersed in this brilliantly written story. Much respect to Willow for her strength and bravery in penning this story.
⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ OMG, Willow! I wished we had the option to give you more stars. I would certainly give you much more!
This book hits on a subject that gets swept under the rug more times than we can count and it is really sad that it does!
You all need to read this awesome book. Bravo to you Willow for taking a stand. Thanks for writing such a fantastic book!
⭐️⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ A riveting tale with the usual plot twists and a surprise ending. A tale that mimics true life all too well. A story that needs to be told.

"Non-stop action drives a cleverly woven plot is perfect for those who love Michael Crichton’s blend of plausible science fiction and masterful action-adventure.

When an employee of the English pub where you're staying during your vacation is murdered, and it happens on the first night you're there, it's definitely not the way to start a vacation!
A vacation in Northern England with three friends is a dream come true for Kat. Many famous authors lived and worked there, and Kat, who is an author, was looking forward to learning more about them. But the ugly hand of murder upset her plans when Sam, a popular employee at the pub, is murdered on his way home from work.
Kat's been involved in several successful murder investigations at her home back in Kansas (her husband is the local District Attorney), and she feels she has to help investigate his murder. And even though she'd promised her husband she wouldn't become involved in any more murder investigations, she can't turn her back on Sam's uncle, the owner of the pub, who has no idea what to do. She can see that he desperately needs her help.
Kat can't get rid of the thought that Bailey, Sam's Belgian Malinois dog, must have known who the murderer was because he didn't try to protect Sam from the killer. After all, he'd come to Sam's rescue before, so why didn't he protect Sam on the night the murder took place? Had he recognized the murderer? Was it someone Sam knew and was on friendly terms with?
Join Kat and her friends as they explore the Northern England countryside while they help the local authorities solve a murder.
