Mary Kubica, author of The Good Girl and the newly released Pretty Baby, takes readers through suspenseful twists and turns after a chance meeting between two women on a train platform. Fans of Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl will appreciate this interesting take on the thin line that separates sanity and darker impulses
Characters in thrillers--especially the women--live in a parallel universe, don't they? A universe where they've never read a thriller or seen one on TV or in a movie theater. Because otherwise they wouldn't behave like dummies even now, heading past the middle of the decade. Take Jennifer Lopez in this year's erotic thriller The Boy Next Door.
