Mysteries and Thrillers and Suspense: Oh My!

Help! Teach me how to read in my sleep. I clearly need more time. Here are 6 mystery/thrillers that were published this month that I still haven't gotten to. Have you read any of them? Which one should be at the top of my list? Any I should cross off?

6 mystery-thrillers to read in June

Under the Harrow by Flynn Berry is a mystery set in England involving two sisters: one is found dead in the first chapter and the other must learn to cope with loss while trying to find out what happened. Many reviews mention the great tension. (Penguin Books) Missing, Presumed by Susie Steiner is suspense set in contemporary Cambridge (UK) and is centered around a missing student and the female detective in charge of finding her. (Random House) One of the characters in 738 Days by Stacey Kade suffers PTSD after having been held captive by a kidnapper for two years. The story is about her meeting the TV star whose poster kept her company until she escaped. But is she really free? This novel has won starred reviews. (Forge)

With Malice by Eileen Cook is about two privileged friends who take a trip to Italy. Only one returns: what happened to the other girl? Was it accident, murder, or something else? This one has gotten mixed reviews (HMH Books for Young Readers) The House of Secrets by Brad Meltzer and Tod Goldberg is a spy thriller involving amnesia, a daughter and father, and a possible history of violence. This is the first in a new series. (Grand Central) Lost and Gone Forever by Alex Grecian is the latest in the really good Scotland Yard's Murder Squad mystery series set in the 1890s. Jack the Ripper may play a part in this one. I highly recommend the other novels in the series. (Putnam)

I read Missing Presumed. It's okay. I would say 3.5/5, in my opinion.

I'm no help, these are all new to me.

I haven't read any of them but they all sound good.

i am betting the The House of Secrets by Brad Meltzer and Tod Goldberg is good because Goldberg wrote Gangsterland, which was excellent, and i am eagerly awaiting the sequel AND one of his sisters posts on IG and i followed her before i knew that . she's an artist .. her IG name is colormetrue

These all sound really good. I am not sure I would be able to pick which to start with either.

Choices, Choices! I think I'd start with the one in The Yard series since I already know it will likely be good!

Missing, Presumed and With Malice are both on my TBR but all of these sounds great! I love a good suspenseful read this time of year.

I have not heard of any of these, but not my typical genres. Hope they are good!

I can't contribute a thing about these books or their authors. However, I'll mention a current favorite mystery author: Keigo Higashino, especially his Detective Galileo series -- very nice plots. Only a few of them have been translated from Japanese, and I'm hoping more will appear soon.
