We’re creeping into the spooky season with stories guaranteed to get your heart pounding. Acclaimed author Clay McLeod Chapman brings us a gothic tale of addiction and hauntings with GHOST EATERS, Ainslie Hogarth conjures up a darkly funny take on mothers and daughters in MOTHERTHING, and Claudia Lux’s SIGN HERE is a surprisingly poignant novel about a guy who works in Hell—literally. Our Behavioral Analysis Unit checks in with Kyle Mills, plus, we get up close and personal with David Baldacci, Nicci French, Jeffrey Archer, Mia P. Manansala, Lee Child and Andrew Child, Wanda M. Morris, and over 30 more thrillers, mysteries, and tales of suspense. The October issue of The Big Thrill is live now—we dare you to read it!
