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!

The Body Keeper (Detective Jude Fontaine Mysteries Book 3)

by Anne Frasier

 

The Thriller Award–winning series continues as Detective Jude Fontaine finds a decades-old connection to missing children that will freeze her blood.

A boy’s frozen body is found trapped in the ice of a Minneapolis lake. The horrifying discovery leads Detective Jude Fontaine and her partner, Uriah Ashby, to more bodies in the ice, all of twelve-year-old boys missing for twenty years.

Then, in one of the worst blizzards the city has ever seen, a four-year-old is abandoned on Jude’s doorstep. The child can’t tell them where he’s from, who his parents are, or how he got there. He doesn’t even know his name.

But in his unspoken language, Jude reads something horrifying—a connection to the dead boys. Now a four-year-old with no name may be the only key to a twenty-year-old, very cold case.

The Children of Abydos

by Edita A. Petrick

 

How is there evidence that the gas station clerk has been shot three times point blank and survived?

With an ambitious past now in ashes, Harmon is a twenty-year veteran of the Bureau. Blunt, with little patience for idiots and even less political savvy, he’s just been transferred to a small resident agency in Santa Rosa. It’s not exactly an outright dismissal but it’s the opposite of a promotion.

Given a new partner - Kate, green and freshly graduated - and a routine investigation, it’s not long before Harmon realizes that this case is far more than it seems. Why has he been given a case when the suspect is already in police custody? How can there be evidence that the gas station clerk was shot point-blank three times … and survived?

With far more questions than answers, Harmon and Kate are ferried from case to case as they realize that they’ve been tossed down an increasingly deadly rabbit hole - but by who? And why? And could a seemingly impossible tale of an immortal man be … plausible?

Deception lies at every corner; the stakes are mounting and with it—the feeling that they’re expendable pawns in the hands of a hidden puppet master.

A case cloaked in mystery, explosive leads and a partner with a hidden past, Harmon will need his wits about him if he ever wants to make it through this investigation alive.

A riveting, fast-paced paranormal thriller - this novel will keep you at the very edge of your seat and turning each page until the very last.

The Last Child: A Novel

by John Hart

 

Winner of the 2010 Edgar Award for Best Novel

Heralded by the Washington Post as a "a magnificent creation, Huck Finn channeled through Lord of the Flies", John Hart's The Last Child is his most significant work to date, an intricate, powerful story of loss, hope, and courage in the face of evil.

Thirteen year-old Johnny Merrimon had the perfect life: a warm home and loving parents; a twin sister, Alyssa, with whom he shared an irreplaceable bond. He knew nothing of loss, until the day Alyssa vanished from the side of a lonely street. Now, a year later, Johnny finds himself isolated and alone, failed by the people he'd been taught since birth to trust. No one else believes that Alyssa is still alive, but Johnny is certain that she is---confident in a way that he can never fully explain.

Determined to find his sister, Johnny risks everything to explore the dark side of his hometown. It is a desperate, terrifying search, but Johnny is not as alone as he might think. Detective Clyde Hunt has never stopped looking for Alyssa either, and he has a soft spot for Johnny. He watches over the boy and tries to keep him safe, but when Johnny uncovers a dangerous lead and vows to follow it, Hunt has no choice but to intervene.

Then a second child goes missing . . .

Undeterred by Hunt's threats or his mother's pleas, Johnny enlists the help of his last friend, and together they plunge into the wild, to a forgotten place with a history of violence that goes back more than a hundred years. There, they meet a giant of a man, an escaped convict on his own tragic quest. What they learn from him will shatter every notion Johnny had about the fate of his sister; it will lead them to another far place, to a truth that will test both boys to the limit.

Traveling the wilderness between innocence and hard wisdom, between hopelessness and faith, The Last Child leaves all categories behind and establishes John Hart as a writer of unique power.

Now with an excerpt from John Hart's next book The Hush, available in February 2018.

Cut Reality: A Novel

by Zack Hacker

 

When death washes ashore on reality TV, who's to blame? And what's real?

"Intelligently conceived and well-executed...A mystery that thoughtfully reflects on the hazy line between suspicion and reckless mania." - Kirkus Reviews

Join Jason Debord as he seeks clarity following the death of a reality TV co-star and ends up uncovering criminal conspiracy.

When Jason returned home from competing on Beached he'd lost weight, couldn't sleep, and felt more alone than ever. But, he expected those changes. Jason had no way to predict that one of his fellow competitors would fling himself from a cliff. Unless he didn't.

Jason can't believe it, but the network broadcasts the alleged suicide to the world, so he pushes forward in his own amateur investigation. Met with resistance from the cast and crew, he persists only through the support of his developing romance with Blake, a psychologist who observes alarming similarities between her patient and her partner.

Events in Cut Reality have a variety of interpretations. While under the watchful eye of the public, Jason has to decide: is what he uncovers too coincidental to be true, or so hard to accept because it's his new reality.

Buy Zack Hacker's anticipated debut novel to find out what Jason discovers...

What critics are saying:

"On the surface, Cut Reality is a murder mystery; but actually it is much more...Highly recommended for those who like their intrigue steeped in philosophical insights and dilemmas." - Midwest Book Review

"When I heard the premise of Cut Reality, I almost died...and I wouldn't lie about that." - Jonny Fairplay, Survivor NSFW

"[Zack Hacker] makes poignant critiques though subtle plot developments, holding back from judging society at large, but willing to poke holes in some of our accepted values...From the first tension-filled scene...Cut Reality will keep readers guessing, but also leave them with plenty to think about." - SPR

"The perfect genre book at the perfect time." - San Francisco Book Review

"Cut Reality is the type of thoughtful, provocative work that you don't see much of in the reality TV fanbase anymore. I had a lot of fun reading it." - Mario Lanza, author of When It Was Worth Playing For, The Funny 115, and host of Survivor Historians

"★★★★★ I have always loved books that can surprise me - this book did that and more." - Readers' Favorite Reviews

by Derek Blass


The streets aren't safe when your enemy wears a blue uniform and a gold badge.

What if the good guys weren't good?

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

What if it was all caught on video and the cop would do anything to cover it up?

"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

Cold Steele: A Hard-Boiled Police Procedural (The Jasmine Steele Mystery Series Book 4)

by Kimberly Amato

 

A SERIAL KILLER IS SAYING IT WITH FLOWERS...

In the fourth installment of Kimberly Amato’s chilling hard-boiled mystery series, badass detective Jasmine Steele is back -- and shockingly, to herself most of all -- she’s as happy as she’s ever been.

She and her brilliant psychologist partner Frankie are planning a wedding that’s been years in the making, and she’s settled into a new chapter of life with her nephew-turned-adopted son, Chase. But the good life turns out to be more fleeting than the detective’s caffeine withdrawals.

Jasmine, or Jazz, to her friends, gets a rude awakening when a 3-year-old cold case comes back hot. New York City’s “Carnation Killer,” a serial rapist and murderer, leaves his fifth calling card on a woman named Emilia Smith. The calling card? A heart-shaped carving into the woman’s chest and a single white carnation.

On the creep spectrum, Jazz puts this killer somewhere between Jack the Ripper and the Zodiac Killer. And her veteran right hand man is on medical leave.

She’s joined instead by temporary partner Detective Sydney Locke, a welcome new character. Sydney’s pretty green but has a fiery determination and talent for the beat that Jazz recognizes within minutes. Soon enough, they’ve got a mentor/protégé thing going – which certainly comes in handy at their often patriarchal workplace.

And it turns out Jazz and Syd will need that and more when the military gets involved with the investigation-- because the victim is none other than the daughter of a high-ranking official, and the brass knows more than they’re saying.

What the team do know is that Emilia’s last night alive was spent at a college bar that sparks Jasmine’ least happy memory –the very same establishment that served as a backdrop to her own early adult years, a past defiled and traumatized by a dangerous man.Just as Jazz is finally ready to be happy, her bone-chilling trauma comes rushing back. And the Carnation Killer is still out there.

Thread of Hope (The Joe Tyler Series Book 1)

by Jeff Shelby


This is the FIRST book in the Joe Tyler series.

If someone took your child, how soon would you stop looking for her? If someone accused your best friend of a terrible crime, when would you stop defending him?

Seven years after Joe Tyler’s daughter Elizabeth was abducted, he hasn’t stopped looking for answers, and he hasn’t forgotten the friend who stood by him as he lost his wife, his home, and his career in his search. Now he’s been brought back to San Diego by the news that this friend has been arrested for beating up a teenage girl—a girl not much older than Elizabeth would be now.
Joe is convinced Chuck Winslow is innocent, but Chuck is in a coma and can’t explain what happened. And the more Joe hears about what Chuck’s been up to in the years he’s been gone, the less Joe recognizes his old friend. To find out the truth, he will have to face his ex-wife, his former bosses, and a hometown full of wealth, lies, and illicit privilege. When Chuck’s accuser goes missing, Joe must decide where his loyalties truly lie.

Jeff Shelby is the best-selling author of The Noah Braddock series (Killer Swell, Wicked Break and Liquid Smoke) and has been compared by reviewers to Harlan Coben and Robert Crais. In Thread of Hope, he delivers a gut-wrenching tale of painful secrets and even more devastating truths as well as an exploration of how a single thread of hope can keep one man going.

Qualify (The Atlantis Grail Book 1)

You have two options. You die, or you Qualify.

The year is 2047. An extinction-level asteroid is hurtling toward Earth, and the descendants of ancient Atlantis have returned from the stars in their silver ships to offer humanity help.

But there’s a catch.

They can only take a tiny percent of the Earth’s population back to the colony planet Atlantis. And in order to be chosen, you must be a teen, you must be bright, talented, and athletic, and you must Qualify.

Sixteen-year-old Gwenevere Lark is determined not only to Qualify but to rescue her entire family.

Because there’s a loophole.

If you are good enough to Qualify, you are eligible to compete in the brutal games of the Atlantis Grail, which grants all winners the laurels, high tech luxuries, and full privileges of Atlantis Citizenship. And if you are in the Top Ten, then all your wildest wishes are granted… Such as curing your mother’s cancer.

There is only one problem.

Gwen Lark is known as a klutz and a nerd. While she’s a hotshot in classics, history, science, and languages, the closest she’s come to sports is a backyard pool and a skateboard.

This time she is in over her head, and in for a fight of her life, against impossible odds and world-class competition—including Logan Sangre, the most amazing guy in her school, the one she’s been crushing on, and who doesn’t seem to know she exists.

Because every other teen on Earth has the same idea.
