29 Plot Twists Even Bestselling Authors Didn’t See Coming


  • Lisa Unger about My Sister, the Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite: “Such a rich, darkly funny story about two sisters — one of them, true to the title, a serial killer. But it’s not her fault! They were asking for it… or were they? How far would you go to protect your family? The answer is complicated and the telling so engrossing.”


  • Peter Straub about In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware: “I started In a Dark, Dark Wood on an airplane, kept dipping into it whenever I was left alone, devoured another big chunk on the flight home, and after that surrendered myself to it until the last revelation had bloomed, the final surprise had exploded, and the bittersweet conclusive turn had folded the final page.”


  • Harriet Tyce about The Eighth Girl by Maxine Mei-Fung Chung: “Intricately plotted and sensitively written, The Eighth Girl draws the reader into the dark heart of London’s underworld with relentless tension until the shock of the final reveal.”


  • Gillian Flynn about The Dinner by Herman Koch: “The Dinner begins with drinks and dark satire, and goes stealthily and hauntingly from there. It’s chilling, nasty, smart, shocking, and unputdownable.”


  • Flynn Berry about The Good Son by You-Jeong Jeong: “A gripping, atmospheric, edge-of-your-seat thriller, The Good Son is moody and dark in the best way, with an unreliable narrator you won’t soon forget. I loved it.”
