Our Year in Reading: Mystery/Thrillers
Genre fiction has been a lifesaver this year! Escaping into a different world is therapeutic, and one of my favorite genres is mystery/ thrillers. Here are a few you might have missed this year:
Bug Montage is a former getaway driver who thought he had escaped the criminal life. After a series of setbacks, and with no other options, Bug agrees to one more job. This is the story of a heist gone sideways, of a man ground down by economic desperation, of fast cars and thrilling chases, of identity and love.
Sydney has returned to her Brooklyn neighborhood that is changing at a rapid pace. Long-time residents seem to be disappearing overnight, and Sydney is overtaken with paranoia and fear. A new neighbor might prove a useful ally as together they struggle to find the truth of what is going on before they end up disappearing themselves.
