Nightshades by Melissa F. Olson
In this urban fantasy thriller from Melissa F. Olson, Alex McKenna is a special agent assigned to the Bureau of Paranormal Investigations. The BPI is tasked with investigating vampires (shades) in Chicago, and she’s sent along on a case involving missing children.
As BPI agents begin winding up dead, McKenna has to get to the bottom of the disappearances with the help of some unlikely allies. Olson is known for her urban fantasy Scarlett Bernard and Boundary Magic series, and this novella promises some “visceral action” with a new take on the vampire mythos.
The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware
A writer for a travel magazine, Lo Blacklock, has been given a prime assignment: spend a week on a luxury cruise. It starts off well with happy guests and smooth sailing. However, when the weather turns, the trip takes a dark turn. Lo sees a woman thrown overboard, someone who wasn’t on the manifest. It’s a mystery in the same vein as The Girl on the Train and Gone Girl, The Woman in Cabin 10 has all the hallmarks of an excellent thriller: suspenseful, intriguing and unsettling.
Dark Matter by Blake Crouch
You might have seen some of Blake Couch’s other works: he’s the author behind the Wayward Pines trilogy, and his newest novel, Dark Matter, has been picking up buzz for years now. Crouch sold the movie rights for the novel in 2014 before it was even finished, and it’s now set to come out later this summer.
In it, Jason Dessen is knocked out and awakens to find himself strapped to a gurney, surrounded by people who he doesn’t recognize. The world he’s in is one he doesn’t recognize: he’s married to someone else, and he’s no longer a regular college professor, but a brilliant genius. This is a fast-paced thriller that deals with alternate worlds and paths not taken.
