Joe Perrone Jr As the Twig is Bent
This a terrific thriller that's doing gangbusters on Amazon.com


message 10: by Joe (new)

Joe Perrone Jr If you have a Kindle, why don't you download a sample. I think you'll find it quite interesting. Otherwise, it's available in paperback, and Amazon has it with the "look inside" feature, so you can explore it that way. Let me know what you think. I just published a sequel, also, called Opening Day. You might like that too, and it's on sale for only $7.96 in Kindle and $10.76 in paperback.

message 8: by [deleted user] (new)

I vote for TERROR ON THE BEACH by Peggy Holloway.


message 7: by Judy (new)

Judy I have read SO many of these books before I discovered Goodreads, and so many are favorites--how can you pick just one or four.


message 6: by Cathy (new)

Cathy DuPont Great list!


message 5: by Beverly (new)

Beverly Biographical novel of Charles "The Origin"
Darwin by Irving Stone

If you're interested in Darwin,
this is the best based on fact
book written.


message 4: by Donna (new)

Donna I'm like Judy, I read about half these before I got into GR and only put a few on my read list. I need to up date my list, I guess. I just don't know how to vote for one or even four they are all so darn great!


message 3: by Razz (new)

Razz "Six Bad Things" (Hank Thompson, #2) by Charlie Huston; " Skeleton's Knee and The Scent of Evil by Archer Mayor; The Eye of the Leopard by Henning Mankell; "When She Was Bad" and "Split Image" by Ron Faust; Disgrace by J.M. Coetzee; "The Sculptress" by Minette Walters; Down in the Flood by Kenneth Able , "The Last Good Kiss" by James Crumbly are just a few that have been some of my favorites.


message 2: by Shirley (new)

Shirley First Night of Summer A gritty, must read psychological thriller/ mystery. Disturbing yet relevant---and full of emotion. Not for the faint of heart. I found it to be a touching story where good triumphs over evil. Great ending!
