What kind of suspense do you like to read? I would love to get different people's opinion on what kind of suspense makes for a good read.
What kind of suspense movies have you've seen that stick with you? One of my favorites is Wait Until Dark which came out in the late 60s. The heroine (Audrey Hepburn) was a blind housewife and some bad guys were after her.They were after a heroin filled doll. I still remember the scene in her apartment when they were trying to kill her. There was one part where I knew they would surprise her and I still jumped in my seat in the theater when it happened. Alfred Hitchcock did a great job of showing a suspenseful moment without much violence. Another older movie that has stuck with me is Charade with Gary Grant and Audrey Hepburn. It was a roller coaster ride and you weren't sure who was the good guys or the bad ones. Neither did the heroine. Very suspenseful with a great mystery. What are some movies you've seen that you remember and remember?
Some of the writers I read that do a wonderful job of keeping my attention to the very end are James Rollins and Michael Crichton. Two of my favorite books from them are Jurassic Park by Crichton and Amazonia by Rollins. But they aren't the only authors I love to read: Dee Henderson, Brandilyn Collins, Tami Hoag,Lisa Jackson, John Stanford and many, many more. What are some books you've read that have kept you up nights? Share some of the types of books you like to read in suspense/mystery genre.
