Late July is high time for mysteries and thrillers, and the Best Mysteries & Thrillers of July prove that out. There are international spy thrillers, quirky buddy adventures, dark psychological thrillers, and suspenseful murder mysteries. Basically, the whole gamut and then some. Here are four books from the list, but you will want to check out the entire list here.

The Other Woman by Daniel Silva - This book is at the top of our Mysteries & Thrillers list, and it's also at the top of the Amazon Charts list. Daniel Silva is the Michael Jordan of spy novel writers, but more likable.

Baby's First Felony by John Straley - This is the first book in the Cecil Younger series since 2001. Cecil is a criminal defense investigator working in Sitka, Alaska (where the author also lives). It's a beloved series with memorable characters and a unique voice.

Baby Teeth by Zoje Stage - This is a book that the editors started talking about early (it was featured in our top 10 books for July). If you're a parent who thinks that child raising is difficult... well, you're right about that. But Hanna, the child in Baby Teeth, is different. As Amazon's Vannessa Cronin put it, she "makes Wednesday Addams look positively angelic."

The Last Time I Lied by Riley Sager - Riley Sager's debut Final Girls was a big success, and now the author has followed it up with another success, The Last Time I Lied. The book is set against the backdrop of a summer camp. It's creepy and fast-paced. Try to avoid reading it at night. We spoke to Sager here.
