Unsolved murders. Detectives on the hunt. All good mysteries keep you on the edge of your seat and these three won’t disappoint! These are the best of the best mysteries of 2020!
Our Remarkable Reads Mystery Bundle includes:
- Leave the World Behind by Rumaan Alam
Hailed “fall’s biggest book” by Entertainment Weekly and is a finalist for the National Book Award (NBA) for fiction and just so you know, the NBAs are the Golden Globes for the literary world. So needless to say this book is THAT good! Amanda and Clay head out to a luxury home in Long Island for vacation. But their holiday is interrupted when the owners come knocking because of a mysterious blackout that’s hit Manhattan. Soon mayhem ensues - missing children, a noise from the heavens so loud the windows crack, a flock of deer who appear suddenly in the yard, unseen dangers abound in what buyer Michelle calls “a nail-biter” and a “prescient novel and psychological thriller unlike any I’ve read before.”
Fun fact: Leave the World Behind is set to be a Netflix film starring Julia Roberts and Denzel Washington.
- When No One Is Watching by Alyssa Cole
A unique psychological thriller set in a gentrifying neighborhood in Brooklyn. As condos start cropping up and FOR SALE signs start littering Sydney Green’s block she begins to investigate what is happening to her neighbors and neighborhood. It turns out not everyone is moving to the suburbs. “This book is tense, prescient and had my stomach turning inside out,” buyer Michelle says and bookseller alumni Leah says “When No One is Watching brings the topical discussions the nation is having and writems into very real situations. I was equal parts deeply unsettled and impressed.”
Fun fact: Alyssa Cole is an established writer of historical fiction, science fiction and romance, most notably the Reluctant Royals series. This is her first foray into mystery.
- Devil and the Dark Water by Stuart Turton
If you love Sherlock Holmes and Netflix’s new Enola Holmes then this is the book for you! Part mystery-detective thriller, part adventure story, buyer Michelle thinks Devil and the Dark Water is “clever, funny, and has all the elements of a classic Agatha Christie novel.”
Fun fact: We have a special gift for you courtesy of Turton’s publisher and our friends Sourcebooks. Each Remarkable Reads Mystery Book Bundle comes with a special Devil and the Dark Water tote bag and signed bookplate from the author. These are an exclusive gift that comes with the Remarkable Reads Mystery Book Bundle. The tote and bookplate are not available for individual sale.
