The Collector by Daniel Silva (2023)
It’s time to add art to the mix with this best-seller, The Collector, by Daniel Silva. The best thing about this book? It’s fiction birthed from fact.

Deep State by Chris Hauty (2020)

A newly elected president causes hostility between the people and the unexpected and somewhat suspicious death of an important aide. Hayley Chill might be the only person who believes there’s more to that death than natural causes and he takes it upon himself to get all his questions answered. Like The Night Agent, the twist in this book has jaws dropping and there’s only one way to join that conversation – grab a copy now.
The Firm by John Grisham (1991)
Would this list be complete without the renowned legal thriller author, John Grisham? Of course not. There are secrets to uncover, and once again, no one to trust. This high-stakes, legal thriller is packed with twists, turns, suspense, and the truth no one sees coming.

The Investigator (Letty Davenport, #1) by John Sandford (2022)
The first book in the Letty Davenport series introduces Letty, who is set to become the lethally dangerous heroine everyone’s been waiting for. It, however, takes more than just boredom and restlessness to achieve that. Letty Davenport isn’t new to the life of crime and action, but when she’s given a case to investigate, she and her partner, John Kaiser, soon discover that what they signed up for is nothing compared to what they have coming. This book is called one of Sandford’s best books in years by Publishers Weekly.
The End Game by Catherine Coulter & J.T. Ellison (2015)
All it takes to get the action and thrills in this masterpiece is one tip that comes in the form of a call, and that is just one of many similarities between The End Game and The Night Agent. FBI agents must find a way to solve the cases despite all the looming disasters that now lurk in every corner of this must-read. The End Game is the third book in the A Brit in the FBI series, but it can be read as a stand-alone. There’s nothing in the way of what may just become one of your favorite spy/thriller books.
The Night Agent by Matthew Quirk (2019)
Matthew Quirk gets another spot on this stellar list. Chances are, you’ve only watched the Netflix series, but it’s time to experience the magic beyond the TV screen! This isn’t just for the fans who can’t get enough of the hit show, it’s for those who crave a more intimate relationship with their favorite characters and want to rediscover the story in its original written brilliance.
I am Pilgrim by Terry Hayes (2013)
I Am Pilgrim is Terry Hayes’s debut novel, and it’s the work he’s most known for. What Terry Hayes delivers in this 700-page captivating read is rich detail and a closer look into the secret wars fought daily in the interest of national security. When Pilgrim’s book on forensic pathology is used to cover up murders, the former intelligence agent makes it his duty to stop the impending doom. I Am Pilgrim is another classic book to watch out for on the big screen, although it’s been delayed for years.
The Charm School by Nelson DeMille (1988)
The Charm School takes readers into the world of spies and even deeper into the heart of Cold War-era Russia. Here, every chapter unravels a new layer of mystery, leaving readers unable to drop the story once they’ve started the journey. The author, Nelson Demille, is a decorated United States Army veteran(1966-69) who saw action in Vietnam, and in 2015, they were chosen as Thriller Master of the Year.
The Edge by David Baldacci (2023)
Another exciting tale from David Baldacci in the 6:20 Man series, The Edge sees the U.S. government call upon one man to solve a murder and retrieve some classified missing information. Devine needs to be on good enough behavior to get the answers he seeks. They need to trust him, but he can’t trust any of them, and just maybe, he has to look over his shoulder, too.
