Best Mystery and Thriller Book Recommendations

If there’s one thing mystery and thriller lovers know, it’s that danger is lurking around every corner—or at least at the end of every chapter. Whether you’re an amateur sleuth who’s obsessed with figuring out whodunnit or you adore twisty thrillers that let you take a peek behind closed doors, we have endless recommendations for you.

Perhaps you enjoy domestic thrillers that prove white picket fences can hide horrendous crimes, or mysteries that take you around the world. You can take a step back in time with historical mysteries, or read a modern thriller that will make you rethink social media. You can even work your way through the masters of the genre, from Joyce Carol Oates to Jack Higgins.

From psychological thrillers to cozy mysteries, there's nothing like a novel designed to send chills down your spine. Discover everything from classic authors like Agatha Christie and Patricia Wentworth to modern writers like Lucy Foley and Liane Moriarty. And whatever you do, remember to lock your doors before you go to sleep.
