Amazon First Reads: Thriller/Mystery (Aug. 2020)

Amazon First Reads for August are here!! A possibly-troubled five-year-old, a therapist haunted by an ugly past, a series of grisly Uni murders…if these sound up your alley, you might want to check out this month’s Amazon First Reads! AFR offers a list of titles that aren’t released yet; you can choose one of these titles for only 1.99$, but you can also get the e-book you want for free if you’re an Amazon Prime Member. Now, fellow readers, let’s browse through these picks…

*US title:

Girl Gone Mad by Avery Bishop

A therapist’s dark past comes back to haunt her (she and her friends had bullied the middle school “new girl” to a breaking point) when she realizes her friends start dying one by one 14 years later, and she starts seeing (or hallucinating?) a woman who looks exactly like the girl she’d bullied.

*UK title:

The Other Girl by C. D. Major

A 5-year-old girl was admitted to an asylum, and 15 years later, she survives the fire that destroys it. Is Edith mad, or are the “insane” stories she told as a child actually true?

*US/UK titles:

Deadly Waters by Dot Hutchison

Dead bodies of Uni students who had raped several women start showing up all over campus, and the main character – a journalism undergrad – is assumed to be behind all these killings.

Interference by Brad Parks

Interference is a sci-fi/medical thriller about a doctor who suffers from seizures and suddenly goes missing. Could this be related to his latest research?

Which of these sound(s) like something you’d like to read?
