I’ve missed the last couple #thrillerthursdays and it’s not for a lack of trying but here we are! We made it to the next Thriller Thursday & tomorrow is


I just finished I Killed Zoe Spanos the other day and lemme tell you—the hype is real! If you haven’t picked it up, checked it out, or pulled out your e-reader, you may want to consider. Kit Frick knocked it out of the park. Not to mention the book itself is gorgeous!

Some Choose Darkness by Charlie Donlea, Kensington Publishing

This is my next dive—Some Choose Darkness. With the recent release of The Suicide House by Donlea, I wanted to start here. I caught a first glimpse into The Suicide House through #bookishfirst a few months ago and I tried to get my hands on a galley ever since. Luckily, it’s out now and the wait is over! Now to get my hands on a copy!

〰️I hope you’re doing well and I can’t to hear about what books you’re hooked on currently!〰️

Synopsis of Some Choose Darkness

A modern master of suspense, critically acclaimed author Charlie Donlea delivers a taut, gripping novel about the deadly secrets hiding in plain sight …

Forensic reconstructionist Rory Moore sheds light on cold-case homicides by piecing together crime scene details others fail to see. Cleaning out her late father’s law office after his burial, she receives a call that plunges her into a decades-old case . . .

In the summer of 1979, five Chicago women went missing. The predator, nicknamed The Thief, left no bodies or clues behind–until police received a package from a mysterious woman named Angela Mitchell, whose unorthodox investigations appeared to unmask the killer. Then Angela disappeared without a trace. Forty years later, The Thief is about to be paroled for Angela’s murder. But the cryptic file Rory finds in her father’s law office suggests there is more to the case.

Making one startling discovery after another, Rory becomes helplessly entangled in the enigma of Angela Mitchell and what happened to her. As she continues to dig, even Rory can’t be prepared for the full, terrifying truth that is emerging . . .

“Engrossing . . . Donlea smoothly mixes red herrings and genuine clues. Readers who relish a good puzzle will be rewarded.”
