When he is confronted by a prestigious Corporate company with a strange offer, an ultimate recruitment test, he could not/would not want to refuse.

2. Leave No Trace by Mindy Mejia

Published 04/09, This book is a psychological suspense thriller that revolves around a speech therapist Maya whose life takes an unexpected turn when she is assigned to a difficult patient – a boy, who after spending 10 years into the wilderness, is as silent as a dead night.

Now, the father is still missing, and the son wont talk! Maya would go to any extent to unite the lost son with his dad, but is it worth the struggle?

This is a very intriguing book knit very carefully with the right sentiments. Head over to my review here to learn more.

 3. The Darkest Place by Jo Spain

Published 20/09. Jo Spain is one author I’ve enjoyed reading, and this book is no exception. ‘Island of the Lost was the isle’s name long before the hospital was built. In winter, they say the fog falls so heavy there that you can’t see your hand in front of your face. Storms rage so forcefully you can be blown from the cliffs. Once St. Christina’s was built, the name took on a new meaning. Very few who went into that place ever left.’

How does that sound? Creepy? Interesting? Scary? Well, its a mixture of all those! Learn more

 4. A Little Bird Told Me by Marianne Holmes

Published 13/09. This is a debut novel that really feel like one. It’s a soft Domestic Noir that will give the fear and creeps while reading. In the scorching summer of 1976, Robyn spends her days swimming at the Lido and tagging after her brother. It’s the perfect holiday–except for the crying women her mum keeps bringing home. Twelve years later, Robyn returns home, to a house that has stood empty for years and a town that hasn’t moved on, forced to confront the mystery that haunted her that summer.

And atone for the part she played in it.
