I was asked to preview this one, so maybe I'll be cited as 'shill'! Anyway, whatever, I haven't read many (any?) books previously where the the protagonists are a burnt-out social worker and a long-term schizophrenic. This one worked for me.

If you are looking for a great read, may I recommend 'Snapshots' available through Amazon.

At only 1.98 Beast In The Basement is a bargin. Its full of suspense and tension and is very well writen. Jason Arnopp (Doctor Who: The Gemini Contagion) is a wonderfully skilled writer reminiscent of Stephen King - this one has a twist to knock your socks off too.

Just found the thirteenth torment and added to my wish list. Didnt have to bother with capital letters to find it! Thanks for the recommendation.

Sou'Wester says:
It's a slang word, thought to have been in existence for about a hundred years, meaning stooge or decoy. Probably has its origins with dodgy U.S. market traders who'd travel from town to town; they'd set up a stand and start proclaiming their wares to the locals but they'd have an accomplice mingling with the crowd. Their job was to pretend to be a genuine customer who would enthusiastically "buy" the product being sold, thereby encouraging others to take interest. It's one of the oldest tricks in the book and you'll still see it perpetrated today. The word's meaning has extended to cover any kind of situation where someone is planted to drum up interest; for example TV companies will "plant" people in the audience of a live show to enthusiastically applaud and cheer performers and usually, unless the performer is hopelessly dire, the rest of the audience will follow suit! . As regards its specific use here, a "shill" review is usually considered one posted by a relative/accomplice of the author without revealing their connection. It's a bit of a low trick to play on customers (those who fall for it, that is) but I don't know that it's strictly illegal.

Loved this unusual thriller by Linda Prather. Bet you can't... FIND ME (Catherine Mans' Suspense) only 77 pence.

Just finished reading The Fey (Alex the Fey thriller series) really enjoyed it. Was quite different from most books. Plus there's a full series :)

Alive: The True Story of the Andes Survivors
love this book. Read it a bunch of times and still can't put it down.

Hit List
All Chris Ryan books are really good to me, I have a whole shelf of them. But this one is by far the best.

The Brass Verdict
Really good book, would definitely recommend to anyone.

Modern Murder
New author's first book, but actually really interesting. There is a love story in it between the two main guys, but the story itself is really good.

Dark Watch: The Oregon Files #3: A Novel from the Oregon Files

Alpha Force: Rat-Catcher

That's all I can think of at the moment. Love everyone else's suggestions. Will definitely be checking them out.

I like reading medical thrillers, but don't remember reading one about a drugs trial before, so I think this classes as original

Trial #1322 (a medical/psychological thriller)

A really original book is SAVAGE by international best selling author Willow Rose. It is a family saga over 3 decades. It is free only two days more here : Savage (Daughters of the Jaguar)
