A portrait of a marriage so hilariously terrifying, we can only give you the initial premise: on their fifth anniversary, Nick Dunne’s beloved wife Amy disappears, and all signs point to very foul play.

Lawrence Block! Lawrence Block (2011)
A Drop of the Hard Stuff. Mulholland Books

Nic Pizzolatto! Nic Pizzolatto (2010)
Galveston: A Novel. Tantor Media, Unabridged CD edition
Pizzolatto's crime fiction debut is a no-nonsense novel noir with psychological depth. His hero is dying of lung cancer as he tries to save a pretty 18-year old prostitute and her child from ruthless hoodlums. Brutal, but honest. Much better than the best-selling run-of-the-mill thrillers. More...
