IT, by Stephen King. To this day I am scared of clowns and balloons. I don’t walk in the rain. The book has put the “IT” fear in me. – RD Reader Eliatha Cyprus

Absolute Power, by David Baldacci. The story was horrifying and interesting and edge-of-my-seat thrilling, but what gave it extra oomph was knowing that it could all happen, or even may have happened already, because of the power that Presidents of the United States wield. I have read many good thrillers, but the possibility that this story could be real put the extra edge on it. I’ve read it a couple of times and intend to read it again. It’s that good. – RD Reader Narelle Cox

Parting Shot, by Linwood Barclay. It didn’t just tell one story. Instead, the author chose to tell two people’s journey to find the man who committed a felony beyond any imagination. Delving into issues such as psychological and physical torture, this thriller novel kept my heart racing. I would be lying if I were to say that I couldn’t put it down… instead, I couldn’t pick it up after putting it down. I didn’t want to know what happened. I didn’t want to know what they did to him. I didn’t want to know the words they tattooed onto his back as he lay unconscious, completely at their mercy. But I read it, and I’m so very glad I did. – RD Reader Elizabeth Wake
