I really enjoyed Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, and I would recommend this book for those who enjoy psychological thrillers.

Currently, I'm reading The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides. This is also a psychological thriller, and I'm really enjoying it so far. I'll come back here when I'm done and let you know if I still recommend it!

Dark Web Murders by Brian O'Hare - Good mystery especially if you're a fan of Midsomer Murders (comes pretty close)

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Operation Barracuda - An engaging read that has a little bit of everything in regards to C/T/H/M genres

Meddling Kids by Edgar Cantero - To me, this could fall into the Thriller category due to the storylines though it does contain some graphic descriptive imagery so reader beware

The Nancy Drew Graphic Novels by Papercutz - a refreshing take on the young detective series set in a modern day setting. Readers are pretty much in the dark up to the reveals; nice quick reads.

Haven't been reading much Crime/Thriller pieces lately but should get back to it.

I think I'm going to try reading Thomas Harris' Hannibal. I've been meaning to get to it, and I'm hoping it will help with the resurgence of my slump. 🤞

Edit: I finished the book and enjoyed it. :)

Thank you for all your recommendations! I'm curious about The Nancy Drew Graphic Novels. I might check those out!

Sure! It's about this woman who shoots her husband to death and becomes silent. No one knows why it happened because she just stops talking after the event occurred. Now, there's a doctor who's determined to figure out the truth.

I think that's all I can say without giving too much away. :)
