Thriller books by 5310 Publishing
Thriller is a genre of fiction, having numerous, often overlapping subgenres. Thrillers are characterized and defined by the moods they elicit, giving viewers heightened feelings of suspense, excitement, surprise, anticipation, and anxiety. Thrillers generally keep the audience on the "edge of their seats" as the plot builds towards a climax. The cover-up of important information is a common element. Literary devices such as false clues, plot twists, unreliable narrators, and cliffhangers are used extensively. A thriller is often a suspense-driven plot. Suspense gives the viewer a feeling of pleasurable fascination and excitement mixed with apprehension, anticipation, and tension. These develop from unpredictable, mysterious, and rousing events during the narrative, making the viewer or reader think about the outcome of certain actions. Suspense builds to make those final moments, no matter how short, the most memorable. The tension in a thriller story keeps the person hooked to reading or watching more until the climax. The psychological thriller is a subgenre of thriller that explores the psychology of its characters, who are often unstable. What makes a thriller psychological is that the most important questions revolve around the minds and behaviour.
