Sometimes you get in the mood for a little suspense, and there's no better way to scratch that itch than with a killer book—literally.

To add a bit of excitement to your bookshelf, we found some of the best thriller books out there—many of which have been adapted for the big screen. But the story that seems obvious is nowhere close to the truth. Created into a drama starring Emily Blunt, this story follows Rachel Watson, a commuter who catches sight of the same alluring couple every day while on her train ride.

But, in a welcome plot twist this year, two talked-up debuts justified the hype. In this genre, a throat-grabbing opening is obligatory, but what follows often fails to maintain the grip. Authors of successful franchises often become sick of revisiting the same protagonist each year: there are horror stories in publishing about the awful day when a top-selling writer of cop novels suddenly delivers a first-world-war bildungsroman. Both novelists have become expert technicians at the continuation of a signature brand. Peter James showed that a diversion this year into ghost stories with The House on Cold Hill had not diverted energy from his consistently impressive sequence of DS Roy Grace policiers , the 11th of which, You Are Dead Macmillan , confidently combines a cold case with a very hot one. The brilliantly versatile Laura Lippman combines the best elements of her standalone psychological novels with the greatest strengths of her series featuring journalist turned private eye Tess Monaghan in Hush Hush Faber , a Monaghan mystery that probes the extremities of maternal love. This is a novel that has the CIA failing to spot a problem from the past — an agent who is, Hamlet-like, avenging his dead father — and seeing but having little idea how to deal with the present difficulty of Islamist jihad.
