These thrillers come with something extra:atmosphere, character and conflict resolution. In “The Other Mother” by Carol Goodman, a woman assumes best friend’s identity and flees home and husband, infant daughter in tow, to take a job as a live-in archivist for her favorite author. “In the spirit of Du Maurer’s Rebecca, Goodman has concocted a labyrinthine tale deliciously riddled with dark motives and tangled identities” (Kirkus). “The Flight Attendant” by Chris Bohjalian takes off the morning after a drunken hook-up in Dubai, when the titular character awakens to a most unpleasant surprise.

Quotable“The precise role of the artist is to illuminate that darkness, so that we will not, in all our doing, lose sight of our purpose, which is to make the world a more human dwelling place.” James Baldwin
