Halloween is inching ever closer, and now’s the perfect time to start thinking about books that scare and/or creep the tar out of you. I don’t normally read “scary” books, but there are a handful of thrillers that definitely kept me up at night.
- Lucy (Laurence Gonzales) – A story about the world’s first ape-human hybrid, considered by some a modern version of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.
- Helter Skelter (Vincent T. Bugliosi, Curt Gentry) – The true story behind the Manson murders, written by the prosecuting attorney. All the more terrifying because it’s true.
- Long Lankin (Lindsey Barraclough) – What could be more horrifying than a cannibalistic ghost?
- The Relic (Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child) – A deadly monster who must feed on the human hypothalamus gland in order to live…and it’s trapped in NYC’s Museum of Natural History. What could possibly go wrong?
