Psychological Thriller – A Thin Line

A Thin LineA Thin Line
David Boiani
Published: February 2016
ISBN: 978-1519167088
Pages: 226
Genre: Psychological Thriller

John Corbin has been investigating, catching, and convicting murderers, rapists, and pedophiles for twenty years as a Seattle detective. But lately, someone has been beating him to the punch and eliminating these vile criminals before he can apprehend them. John is learning that there is a thin line between innocent or guilty, good or evil, alive or dead.

By definition, a thin line is a very narrow division between two alternatives. Some being exact opposites, while others are separated by the narrowest of threads. This novel follows this definition to the letter. In life, many situations aren’t just black or white. There is usually a modicum of grey to fill in the space. Who is right? Who is wrong? Who is good? Who is evil? Perhaps everyone at one time or another lies somewhere in the middle….

A Thin Line is a tale that will immediately draw you in and keep you guessing. A suspenseful psychological thriller with twists and turns that will toy with your mind and emotions, driven by a chilling narrative that builds the tension right up until its explosive conclusion.

Psychological Suspense – The Thundering

By Megan Davidson
Publisher: Champlain Avenue Books
Published: September 2015
ISBN: 978-1943063093
Pages: 288
Genre: Psychological Thriller, Psychological Suspense, Women’s Suspense

The Thundering is the story of psychologist Cathy Morgen, who encounters the most challenging case of her career very early one morning in 1961 at Summerhaven Mental Hospital.  Joseph, a teenage boy who has been admitted on an emergency basis, is behaving exactly like a frightened horse — kicking, neighing and biting.  What has caused this apparent delusion?  Can Joseph be restored to humanity?  Cathy has no answers, but she is determined to find them.  Not only does she feel compassion for Joseph, but she hopes that treating him will help her overcome her guilt at failing to save a similar young patient.  Assisting Cathy is her flighty teenage daughter Suzie, who is entranced by the idea of helping Joseph. Opposing Cathy and her attempts to solve the mystery of the horse-boy are an arrogant psychiatrist; Summerhaven’s genial but deceptive director, and Cathy’s own husband, Dan, who longs for a conventional marriage.

Attempted escapes, brilliant insights, shocking confessions and unthinkable acts of betrayal all play a role in helping Cathy discover Joseph’s traumatic past and heal his broken psyche.  She will pay a significant price for his return to the world of humans.
