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.

 

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!

The Maltese Falcon by Dashiell Hammett

The Maltese Falcon by Dashiell Hammett

The Maltese Falcon by Dashiell Hammett

American writer Dashiell Hammett wrote the classic novel The Maltese Falcon.

It was originally serialized, like many of Charles Dickens’ works, in the Black Mask magazine in 1929 to 30. The book was made into the classic film of the same name with actors Humphrey Bogart, Mary Astor, Gladys George, Sydney Greenstreet and incredible Peter Lorre.

Sam Spade is the main character and practises as a private detective, in partnership with Miles Archer, in San Francisco.

A glamorous beauty, Miss Wonderly, hires them to follow a man called Floyd Thursby, who she says has run away with her sister. Archer sets off to follow Thursby, but winds up dead that night. He’d been shot. Next Thursby gets himself killed and the police suspect Spade.

Miss Wonderly is unmasked. She is actually called Brigid O’Shaughnessy. It transpires that she is  on the hunt for a very valuable black statue of a falcon. She is not the only one. A shady Greek called Joel Cairo and Casper Gutman are also after the falcon. Gutman has in his service, one Wilmer Cook, a young, volatile, gun-totting thug. O’Shaughnessy will not spill the beans to Spade, though she is desperate for his help.

I can’t tell you the rest as it would spoil such a wonderful plot.

It is a story which is full of mystery, intrigue and thrills set off with a touch of the exotic.

Dashiell Hammett wrote this best seller novel, The Maltese Falcon, while living at 891 Post Street in downtown San Francisco. He is one of the worlds finest writers of detective novels and his work endures.

The Altman Code by Robert Ludlum

The Altman Code by Robert Ludlum

The Altman Code by Robert Ludlum

The Altman Code is Robert Ludlum’s fourth book in the immensely popular Covert One series.

A photographer is cruelly killed on the docks in Shanghai, China. His crime? He took photographs of a cargo ship being loaded. The film is destroyed.

The US navy secretly follow a ship mid-ocean – the ship is Chinese, the cargo – believed to be lethal. Aboard are believed to be enormous quantities of chemicals. Chemicals which could be used to create WMD! Weapons of Mass Destruction!

The US President has no intention of seeing these weapons reach rogue elements in the already volatile Middle East.

The situation is immensely delicate.

After years of wrangling with the Chinese, they are close to agreement over human rights negotiations. The President does not want to jeopardise this, or to create an international incident.

Jon Smith, of Covert One, is deployed to find the evidence to incriminate the Chinese vessel. However, vital evidence is lost and an agent is killed. The options are narrowing.

Jon Smith’s mission is imperative and dangerous. The smoke and mirrors hide deadly secrets going to the heart of the powers governing China.

The Altman Code by Robert Ludlum is a thrilling read, as you might expect.

Mr Mercedes by Stephen King

Mr Mercedes by Stephen King. A suprb thriller.

Mr Mercedes by Stephen King

 

The Sunday Express said that this novel, Mr Mercedes by Stephen King, was’the best thriller of the year’.

Stephen King has written over fifty worldwide best-selling books. Mr Mercedes was the first novel of his to feature the character, Bill Hodges.

Several of Stephen Kings books have been made into films such The Shawshank Redemption.

King was shortlisted for the CWA Gold Dagger Award for Mr Mercedes and won the prestigious Edgar Award for best novel for it. Mr Mercedes was also awarded the Goodreads Choice Award for the Best Mystery and Thriller of 2014.

Stephen King has also been awarded the National Book Foundation Medal, the National Medal of Arts and the Grand Master Award from the Mystery Writers of America.

No doubt, like many police officers Bill Hodges, cannot forget the cases that he couldn’t close. One particularly unpleasant case remains at the forefront of his mind. Early one morning at the opening of a jobs fair, eight people in the line-up of hundreds were killed.

They were killed by a madman who drove a stolen Mercedes into them. The deceased just wanted to improve their lives and the lives of their families on that morning and yet, their lives would cease that fateful day.

The horror of that day and the killer at large haunts Hodges. Then one day the fire is re-ignited in him. He receives a letter from someone claiming to be the killer. He says he will kill again.

Bill Hodges had never liked to see a criminal get away with a crime. He was intent that this killer would not repeat his crime, retirement or no retirement, he was going to get him!

Brady Hartsfield is intent on killing again, taunting Hodges just adds some spice to the event.  This time he is intent on killing many more.

Hodges and his buddies will do everything they can to catch the killer before it is too late.

This is a beautifully crafted novel with three dimensional characters and a fast paced, page turning plot from one of the masters of the craft.

Take the time to read this novel, Mr Mercedes, you will not be disappointed.

The Rooster Bar by John Grisham

The Rooster Bar by John Grisham

The Rooster Bar by John Grisham

The Rooster Bar by John Grisham.

What’s to say about John Grisham – except SUPERB! Some of my favourite books and films.

The Rooster Bar is another winner and is utterly engrossing.

It’s an ingenious novel relating to a group of third year law students Zola, Mark and Todd who spend much of their spare time in The Rooster Bar where Todd serves drinks.

They realise that they have been conned. They went heavily into debt borrowing money to pay for the courses at a poor law school where the graduates rarely pass the final bar exams and then get low grade jobs when they do.

They find out that the law school is one of a group of them owned by a dodgy hedge fund in New York who also specialise in student loans.

Deciding that they want to get their own back, they realise that there may also be a way to make some cash into the bargain.

The Rooster Club is a great novel by a fabulously inventive writer, John Grisham.

The Rooster Bar de John Grisham.

Qué decir de John Grisham, excepto ¡EXCELENTE! Algunos de mis libros y películas favoritos.

The Rooster Bar es otro ganador y es absolutamente fascinante.

Es una novela ingeniosa relacionada con un grupo de estudiantes de derecho de tercer año, Zola, Mark y Todd, que pasan gran parte de su tiempo libre en The Rooster Bar, donde Todd sirve bebidas.

Se dan cuenta de que han sido estafados. Se endeudaron mucho pidiendo dinero prestado para pagar los cursos en una escuela de derecho pobre donde los graduados rara vez aprueban los exámenes finales de la abogacía y luego obtienen trabajos de baja calificación cuando lo hacen.

Descubren que la facultad de derecho forma parte de un grupo de propiedad de un fondo de cobertura poco fiable en Nueva York que también se especializa en préstamos para estudiantes.

Al decidir que quieren recuperar lo suyo, se dan cuenta de que también puede haber una forma de hacer algo de dinero en efectivo.

The Rooster Club es una gran novela de un escritor de ficción de suspenso fabulosamente inventivo, John Grisham.

Origin by Dan Brown

Origin by Dan Brown

Origin by Dan Brown

Origin by Dan Brown.

Dan Brown writes another in the Robert Langdon series following on from Angels & Demons, The Da Vinci Code, The Lost Symbol, and Inferno.

It is a novel full of twists and turns which keeps you guessing. Langdon, the well-known Harvard professor of symbology and religious iconology, is invited to Bilbao in Spain to an event at the Guggenheim Museum. Edmond Kirsch, a former student of Langdon, is to give, what he calls, a major announcement which, ‘will change the face of science forever’ and which will answer two of life’s most enduring questions…’Where did we come from?’ and ‘Where are we going?’

The billionaire is a futurist who puts forth incredible high-tech inventions and who makes spectacular predictions.

The event turns to chaos and Kirsch’s controversial discoveries are at risk of being lost.

Langdon is shocked and is forced to escape Bilbao with Ambra Vidal, the director of the museum who worked with Kirsch to organise the event. In search of a secret password that will unlock Kirsch’s secret, they escape to Barcelona. Two world religious leaders, Jewish Rabbi Yehuda Köves, and Islamic Imam Syed al-Fadl are killed.

Langdon is under constant threat from fanatics and an enemy that will not stop. The Spanish throne is implicated in this race to uncover Kirsch’s incredible discovery.

Dan Brown is a highly inventive writer and Origin is sure to be another success for this great writer of thriller fiction.
