Hi, can I suggest Deathloop? This is a debut novel by an established screenwriter, ref. B008DRX7D4 it is the most original book I have read in years. Really unusual, dense, and full of surprises. I was recommended this book and would never have bought it without the recommendation. Currently it is 77pence. Mis C. Roberts

Define original
if you mean different, how about Andrew Nicoll, The Good Mayor
Or One Hundred Years of solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez , or another favourite of mine The House Of The Spirits by Isabel Allende .
If you mean by a new author, I have just finished What Lies Within by Audrey Finch. I think this is her first novel.
Happy reading! I'm off to look at Penitent

Something different? I saw a review of Straw Dogs by Bolaji Olatunde Straw Dogs in the April, 2012 edition of Kirkus Reviews. The Kindle edition is just £1.99Straw Dogs. I tend to avoid self published books but acting on a whim, I bought this one because Kirkus said it had a a "fictionalized version of Frank Sinatra" (Sinatra is my favourite singer). I really enjoyed the book, after I got used to a few silly typos. It's smart, sleek, funny and full of suspense, despite the somewhat unimaginative title.

I recently read The Zombie Room by RD Ronald which was completely brilliant and kept me gripped from start to finish. Of all the books I've read this year, The Zombie Room would be my stand out book and I would definitely recommend it.

The most original books I've read recently are "1982, Janine" by Alistair Grey - which isn't remotely what it seems to be on the first page - and "English Weather" by Neil Ferguson, which tells the story of the hero's life backwards and through the eyes of other characters.

Neither of them are really what you'd call thrillers though - sorry, I followed a link and didn't see "Thriller Forum". Still, they're extremely good and I recommend them.

I'd recommend 'Mist Over Pendle' by Robert Neill which is a really well written and gripping historical novel based on the Pendle witch trials of the 17th century. It's difficult to find (I got a copy last year after a lot of effort). I did my degree in Manchester and Pendle is close by - a fascinating and atmospheric place witches or not! I hope you find it and enjoy it as much as I did!

Mial Pagan's novella, 'Thicker Than Water' (a Dermot O'Hara Mystery) is now available as a Kindle download.

Review
"An excellent little "murder mystery" with an unexpected twist. It oozes small-town Irish charm."

Possibly the most original psychological thriller ever written is "The Insult" by Rupert Thomson".
