The Best Horror of the Year. Vol. 11

A must-have volume for horror aficionados and a solid starter for readers looking to discover new authors in the genre.

Stolen Things

With the current social climate as backdrop, this novel touches on race, homosexuality, police brutality, teenage love, rape, and murder, all within an intense read. Perfect for fans of Karin Slaughter or Lisa Scottoline. [See Prepub Alert, 2/11/19.]

Lock Every Door

Likable characters, great writing, just enough twists, and a Rosemary’s Baby vibe will make this a summer hit. Purchase for Stephen King and Gillian Flynn fans. [See Prepub Alert, 1/23/19.]


This latest from Epstein (The Painter from Shanghai; The Gods of Heavenly Punishment) starts slowly but builds to a twist ending, bringing these two story lines to a satisfying conclusion. Give this to fans of Kristin Hannah's The Nightingale. [See Prepub Alert, 10/29/18.]

The Stranger Inside

A great addition to the psychological thriller genre.

No Exit

Cross Her Heart

Fans of Pinborough's smash debut, Behind Her Eyes, won't be disappointed with this sophomore effort. A slow start builds into a fast-paced, twisty thriller that is hard to put down. Devotees of B.A. Paris and Ruth Ware will be fascinated as well. [See Prepub Alert, 3/26/18.]

The Captives

Obsession and control are the main themes driving the characters toward the surprising but satisfying conclusion of this compelling debut thriller from Immergut (Private Property: Stories). It's a slow burn but definitely worth the wait.
