The Suspense is Killing me!: Good thrillers of all kinds

Novels you just can't put down-- whether because they are so action-packed or so terrifying or just so psychologically astute.

What makes a thriller thrilling?  What idea or setting or character  hooks you into reading way past bedtime?  There are as many kinds of thrillers as there are readers--

what sort thrills you and why?

 

Bring along a brownbag lunch and a book on the theme. A selection of books is on the New Book Shelf, or choose another favorite.
