For whatever reason, Amazon has some killer sales going on right now when it comes to top-notch thriller novels. After searching high and low, we’ve made a list of the best deals available–a mixture of previously released titles, new releases, and upcoming pre-orders.
Foreign Agent by Brad Thor
Thor’s fifteenth Scot Harvath novel is a whopping 47% off right now, which means you can get Foreign Agent in hardcover for under fifteen bucks. Likewise, Thor’s 2015 novel, Code of Conduct, is also on sale for the same price. My advice: buy them both! Even if you haven’t read any of the prior books in this series, you’ll be totally fine jumping in with either Code of Conduct or Foreign Agent.
First Strike by Ben Coes
It was pretty obvious a few years back when Ben Coes released his debut novel, Power Down, that he was going to be a special author. Several books later, his Dewey Andreas series is one of the absolute best out there. In fact, my current top-five authors in the political thriller genre right now are Vince Flynn (or Kyle Mills, who has taken over his franchise), Brad Thor, Daniel Silva, Ben Coes, and Brad Taylor. Already proven to be one of the best, Coes’ latest thriller, First Strike, is the best novel of his career. With non-stop action from page one and some of the finest action sequences in print today, First Strike is a must-read for anyone who enjoys the genre. If you haven’t read it already, now’s your chance. First Strike is available for 40% 0ff, an absolute steal for one of the year’s best books.
Ghosts of War by Brad Taylor
Speaking of Taylor, who I just mentioned above as one of the five best authors in the genre right now, his most recent Pike Logan thriller is 36% off this weekend. Ghosts of War follows Pike Logan and Jennifer Cahil as they team up with two Israeli operatives who have an easy job offer on the table. Of course, that “easy” job turns out to be anything but. Soon the bullets are flying, and Pike finds himself in the middle of a conspiracy involving some powerful Russians. Meanwhile, the Taskforce, the black-ops, off-the-books team that Pike is a part of, is forced to lay low after a former team member went rogue, putting heat on everyone else. Ghosts of War is Taylor’s best novel to date, and at 36% off, it’s a total no-brainer. Order your copy right away!
Guilty Minds by Joseph Finder
While Finder, one of the true masters at crafting heart-racing suspense, has made a career out of writing standalone novels, he’s finally found a franchise guy to build a series around in Nick Heller. A wise-talking, highly skilled private spy, Heller has now starred in three books, including this summer’s Guilty Minds. While the first two books in the series were good, Guilty Minds is on another level entirely. And right now, this page-turning thriller with a conspiracy-laden plot is 45% off! Act fast because this sale won’t last for long.
Night School by Lee Child
In this forthcoming novel from Lee Child, available on November 7th, Jack Reacher returns to night school for a top-secret mission. I don’t want to give away all my thoughts on this book because I’ll be posting my official review next week, but I will say this: Lee Child does not disappoint! Night School is a prequel novel and my personal favorite Reacher book in years. I thought last year’s Make Me wasn’t quite up to par, but this year’s book most definitely is! Pre-order Night School right now and get it 44% off.
Liberty’s Last Stand by Stephen Coonts
Coonts’ latest novel is quite possibly the most politically incorrect novel ever written… and it absolutely rocks. After the American President declares martial law, he then shuts down the courts, sends Congress home, censors the media, and essentially tears up the United States Constitution in the process. But that is just the beginning. Soon, anyone who opposes his political ideology, especially conservatives, are rounded up and thrown into concentration camps. While the president’s evil plan is working, there’s one thing he wasn’t counting on: Texas. When the Lone Star State shocks everyone by declaring their independence, a war breaks out between America and the newly formed Republic of Texas. When tested, will liberty stand? While some (especially those who are on the left side of the political spectrum) will find this book offensive, most will enjoy it for what it is–a nonstop, relentless political thriller. Get Liberty’s Last Stand for 35% off this weekend!
The House of Secrets by Brad Meltzer
When Hazel Nash wakes up in the hospital, she barely remembers the car accident that put her in a coma for multiple days. But rather than rest and take some time to heal up, Hazel is questioned by the FBI. It turns out that her father, who was driving the car and died in the accident, was the last person to be seen with a man who recently turned up dead. Oh, and by the way, that person was found with Benedict Arnold’s bible in his chest cavity. Hazel’s dad was the famous host of a television show called The House of Secrets. As the story unfolds, Hazel discovers that her dad has been keeping some secrets of his own. Nobody mixes historical fiction and suspense the way Meltzer does. Act fast, and you can order The House of Secrets for 40% off for as long as this deal lasts!
No Man’s Land by David Baldacci
Special Agent John Puller is back, and this time he’s investigating a case that’s personal to him. Baldacci is on an absolute tear, delivering hit after hit. His other book from this year, The Last Mile (part of his Amos Decker series) was fantastic. While the Will Robie series is my personal favorite of his many franchises, Puller is a close second. No Man’s Land has a very Jack Reacher-like vibe to it. While it’s not out until November, you can pre-order it right now for 44% off.
Fool Me Once by Harlan Coben
I could go on and on about this book, but this sums it up: Fool Me Once is our highest-rated thriller of the year, period. Enough said, right?! Oh, yeah, and it’s 40% off right now. Seriously, you can’t beat this deal.
