Books with twists and turns will blow your mind, grab you by the shoulders and shake all the certainties out of you. That’s why we love them – the tension, the pace, the classic cliff-hangers that keep us reading deep into the night. All decisions are removed from your hands as you surrender yourself to the roller-coaster ride that will take your breath away. These books come in many guises and they are not all thrillers or crime. All the books here promise that frisson of excitement combined with a trickle of fear. At the heart of this cornucopia of stories and settings, you will find forbidden thrills, shocking endings, danger in unexpected places, dark and twisted humour – and plenty of What the F**k moments. So climb on board, hang on tight and prepare for your jaw to drop.
