The Boy from the Woods by Harlan Coben

These top fiction novels are the best of the best and are well worth a read. Many of them appear in the Washington Post bestsellers and New York Times bestsellers lists or on Amazon.

Though my main interest is in paperback books. Most of the above novels are available as audiobooks through Audible or one of the other companies or as eBooks.

Many of us are working or not at home, are taking staycations or some even holidays and we are keen to read more in our downtime.

I have tried to give you a wide selection of thriller writers work from both industry giants and relative newcomers.

Reading fiction is a great way to spend your time and to grow.


Walk the Wire bestseller by David Baldacci


David Baldacci is one of my favorite writers.

FBI Agent Amos Decker at his best in a top notch thriller.

In the North Dakota’s Badlands a hunter discovers human remains. The woman seems to have undergone a post-mortem.

The dead woman, a teacher, had something to hide – her past was obscured.

The FBI investigator, Amos Decker heads to London, North Dakota, the centre of the fracking industry.

Decker soon realizes that the nearby ‘eye in the sky’,

A nearby Air Force Station and its technology may hold the key to unlocking the mystery.

The country is in grave danger!

This is David Baldacci’s sixth book in the Amos Decker murder thriller series.

The Boy from the Woods bestseller of 2020 by Harlan Coben

the boy from the woods bestseller 2020 Harlan Coben

The Boy from the Woods is a great novel by #1 New York Times bestselling author Harlan Coben.

This thriller details a missing teenager and the impact of her disappearance on those around her.

A mysterious man, Wilde, has much to consider. Many years before he was found living in the woods. He had no memory of his past and he was fostered eventually as the police could find no trace of his family.

Wilde’s world has gone full circle and many years on he lives, once more, alone, in the woods on the periphery of town. Alone and distrusted – separated from his neighbors.

A TV celebrity lawyer called Hester Crimstein tries to get Wilde to assist in finding the girl.  Tensions rise as a team of ex-military security experts comes to town. Wilde faces intense challenges and walls of silence in this taut cleverly constructed thriller from a top fiction thriller writer, Harlan Coben.

The Boy from the Woods is a great New York Times best seller book and a great read!


One Minute Out by best seller author, Mark Greaney

One Minute Out by Mark Greaney


Mark Greaney is a best selling fiction author and New York Times bestseller. He co-authored Tom Clancy Jack Ryan Novels and is a great writer. One Minute Out is a superb novel with a gripping yarn and beautiful writing style.

The Gray Man, a supremely dangerous assassin is at the heart of this tightly written thriller.

Court Gentry discovers a human trafficking ring while in Croatia. The story doesn’t end there but leads all the way back to Hollywood.

Gentry has a mission to obliterate the ring, but others, in the CIA, have other plans. They have difficult decisions to make. The ringleader of the organisation can give them information about a potential attack on the USA by terrorists.

The information is too important to lose …it will not be lost!

One Minute Out is a superb novel by a superb writer, Mark Greaney, who I can thoroughly recommend.

Many of us are reading much more in these days of virus – Stranger than Fiction!

This is one to read!
