Three times a charm

Three times a charm

Thrillers to keep you awake all May!

Nora Roberts never fails to entertain, and her latest novel doesn’t disappoint. Year One is the first book in Chronicles of the One … and sees, with one drop of blood, the world as we know it end. In its place, something extraordinary begins. The Doom is a deadly and mysterious pandemic that starts in Scotland … a virus that kills some people, leaves others with strange abilities. Riveting, intriguing, we couldn’t put it down. Little Brown, R275.

Fiona Cummins’ The Collector opens with the news that a five-year-old girl has been missing for 100 days. The little girl, who was abducted on her way home from school, has cleft hands … and the chief suspect is a man who’s a collector of human skeletons with deformities. A man whose home was filled with bones … a home from which a six-year-old boy with an awful bone disorder fled minutes before it burnt down. A man who’s just escaped from police custody. Scared yet? Here’s another one to keep you up all night. You’re welcome! MacMillan, R285 (Get It Book Club* price R228)

We’d recommend a strong Scotch and all the lights on when you settle down with Alan Drew’s Shadow Man. Set in a suburban Southern Californian town, it’s a hugely suspenseful tale of a serial killer – one who slips into houses late at night, shattering any illusions of safety the residents have. When we say ‘gripping thriller’ it’s not a cliché. Completely chilling and just brilliant. Corvus, R295
