Top 5 Mystery Books

Books are a way of escaping the outer chaos. At least for me, it is and mystery thrillers pave a good pathway of escaping into fantasy and thrill. Here are the top 5 hottest mystery books of 2022 you will enjoy reading.

So dive in, you book junkies!

5. The Missing AmericanBy Kwei Quartey

The Missing American by Kwei Quartey isn’t only a page-turner and an eyeopener. If you’ve always been interested in knowing about scam emails and who may be behind them, here’s what happens to someone who responds to 1 of these.

The book relies on Ghana, which can be plenty of fun to travel over at a time when traveling is difficult. This beauty is shortlisted for the 2021 Edgar Allan Poe Awards.

4. The Survivors: A NovelBy Jane Harper

Nobody would do unsettling murder mysteries in small, remote communities—where everyone knows each other and has many secrets—as well as Jane Harper. Kieran Elliott’s life turned around forever when a reckless mistake led to devastating consequences.

The guilt that also haunts him resurfaces during a visit with his young family to the tiny coastal community he once called home. Kieran’s parents struggle in an exceeding town where the ocean forges fortunes.

Between them, there was only his absent brother Finn. When a body is discovered on the beach, long-held secrets threaten to emerge—a sunken wreck, a missing girl, and questions that have not been washed away. Brace yourselves to read it in one go!

3. ShiverBy Allie Reynolds

If you mostly wanted your mysteries set in snow, Shiver by Allie Reynolds is a decent one to start with. This book is an Agatha Christie-style plot, but with more grit, that makes a specialty of a bunch of snowboarders who are friends and competitors.

It is set during a French alpine resort and moves between this and events of a decade ago. Creepiness and competitiveness are combined in this.

2. House of Correction : A NovelBy Nicci French

In House of Correction, the long-time writing duo Nicci Gerrard and Sean French introduces us to Tabitha, a depressed, isolated young female who has ended up in prison for a murder she’s pretty sure she didn’t commit (but she cannot remember what exactly happened).

Join her as she embarks on her crime-thriller adventure and investigation of who committed the crime— all from behind bars.

1. The Man Who Died Twice By Richard Osman

This is the follow-up to Osman’s likeable and funny first book The Thursday Murder Club which was a fixture on bestseller lists since the 2020 release.

This new whodunit returns to the sleepy retirement village of Coopers Chase, where our septuagenarian sleuths have returned to the jigsaw room—only to appear out their peace shattered again when a ghost from the past sends one among their number a letter, some years after his supposed violent end.

The Man Who Died Twice looks set to charm everyone who loved his earlier book; it seems that the second Thursday Murder Club outing is even better than the first.
