Mystery Thriller

Mystery-thrillers are stories with twists and turns that keep you on your toes guessing about the truth, the POV's truth, and about what will happen next. They can be written from a hero's POV or from a sinister character's POV. Some are scary and make your heart beat faster, making it hard to put down. Some stories make you laugh if you have a witty writer with an unusual sense of humor easy to relate to. Both types can be hard to put down when they're page turners. And you can find many page turners among a variety of styles and writers, depending on what seeks your fancy.

Fringe winds from Hurricane Lori rushed in, carrying dust and debris. It blew through the highceilinged, chandeliered lobby and back into the wide open doors of the elegant and intimate dining room. White linen tablecloths fluttered and napkins flew in the air, sending plates and silverware crashing to the floor.
