Find your next Thriller & Suspense read

Your heart pounds. The clerk reminds you that the bookstore closes in five minutes. “Please finalize your purchases.” But which thriller novel should you buy? Do you play it safe with a Jack Reacher, or take a chance on a new author? And if so, which one?

Time’s up. You have been kicked out the store and are clutching an empty tote bag. You have failed your mission.

Choosing books shouldn’t be as stressful as escaping from the KGB in 1980s Berlin. At Reedsy Discovery, we’ve created a system to help you find the next great thriller author. Our team of hardened operatives (code-name: “reviewers”) are constantly curating new novels — for your eyes only.

Remember to “follow” your favorite reviewers to receive a weekly intelligence briefing (or “newsletter”) and be the first to read the next summer sensation before it becomes declassified.
