- About the Authors
Psychological Suspense plays with readers’ minds, casting them into the role of fascinated observer as they follow tales of elegantly twisted plots and dangerously twisted minds. Uncertainty over what has happened, and who is telling the truth, marks these novels, as do a claustrophobic feel and ratcheting tension. The stories, which range from unfortunate meetings of strangers to deadly relationships within families, offer a thrilling mix of creepiness and unease, an eerily disquieting recognition that something is dreadfully wrong in a seemingly normal world.
