Yes--it's hot! But it IS summer. Cool down with these chillers.

sad black and white GIF

Here are four chillers that I have loved and a few I'm really excited about.

The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye: A Lisbeth Salander novel, continuing Stieg Larsson's Millennium Series, was released June 26, 2018

The Birdwatcher by William Shaw has a follow up called, Salt Lane. I loved the former and cannot wait to read the latter.

Actress and activist Amber Tamblyn just came out with her debut, Any Man. Strong stuff going on here and it's worth a look. 

The Lost Ones by Sheena Kamal is a debut novel and a page turner: contacted by the desperate adoptive parents of the child she gave up fifteen years earlier, Nora embarks on a search through the streets of Vancouver. It's on the shelves right now!

What a great start to cool down.
