You might want to read Retribution by Jilian Hoffman. I found it terrifying.

OP back.

I see the novel I got Girl on the Train is in the movie theatres right now. This may actually be one of the rare times I've read a book & seen the movie for it. The last time I can recall this situation is back w/ the Bridge of Teribithia.

Any other good books these days?

I think James Lee Burke is one the best fiction writers out there. He has two main series of books, one dealing with a detective in New Orleans and another covering a century of a Texas family.

I'm in the middle of reading Michael Connelly's latest Harry Bosch novel, The Wrong Side of Goodbye. I stayed up really late last night reading the first 100+ pages. https://smile.amazon.com/Wrong-Goodb...chael+connelly

I just finished his latest Myron Bolitar novel, Home. I couldn't put it down. One of his best. https://smile.amazon.com/Home-Harlan...s=harlan+coben

After I read "Retribution" by Jillian Hoffman, I could not sleep and heard every little sound in the house. Terrifying is an understatement. I was petrified. And I usually like scary books !

Nobody writes crime mysteries like Michael Connelly (except maybe Patricia Cornwell). He's phenomenal.

I'm listening to the audio book of Sleep No More. I'm not into Stephen King, so when King recommended this book I should have known better.
