The Night Shift on “Most Anticipated” and “Best of” Lists

With the book released next week, I’m thankful that THE NIGHT SHIFT has made numerous most-anticipated or best-book lists:

Newsweek —22 Books to Look Forward to in 2022“:  “Finlay burst on the thriller scene with Every Last Fear in 2021, and if possible, he’s outdone himself with this latest. It opens with a grisly slaying at a Blockbuster on the eve of Y2K; flash forward 15 years to the scene of an ice cream shop which looks much the same. The last words mumbled by the killer seem to suggest the killings are related, and in each case, there’s only one survivor. Finlay grabs readers from the very first line and keeps them propulsively turning pages with absolutely thrilling cliffhangers.”

PopSugar —Best New Thriller and Mystery Books of 2022 So Far” :   “Are you more of a twist filled thriller fan? Then this year has plenty of new releases to keep you happy, too. Prepare for fresh reads from the likes of Lucy Foley, Simone St. James, Ruth Wilson, Riley Sager, and Alex Finlay.”

BookBub — “The Best Mysteries and Thrillers of 2022”:  “If you love stories that keep you guessing — and keep you turning the pages — we have the perfect book list for you! We’ve rounded up the biggest, buzziest, most highly anticipated mysteries and thrillers 2022 has to offer.”

Goodreads — “Readers’ Most Anticipated Mysteries of 2022”:  “In honor of this happy phenomenon, we’ve crunched the numbers to create this mystery and thriller preview list, based on what Goodreads readers are tagging in their Want to Read lists.

Reader’s Digest — “27 Best Fiction Books of 2022 (so far)”:  “Encompassing the genres of thriller, mystery, and horror, The Night Shift is a novel that will stick with you.”

Crime by the Book — “Most Anticipated Early 2022 Crime Books”:  “This unique spin on a serial killer story takes readers deep into the heart of a mysterious series of crimes in the present day that harken back to a spree killing at a Blockbuster in 1999. Twisty, gripping, and character-driven, this is a top notch thriller that you’ll want to read in one sitting. THE NIGHT SHIFT is a genuine thrill ride with a tender heart at its core.”

Criminal Element —  “The Most Anticipated Mysteries and Thrillers of 2022”:   “We weren’t the only ones who devoured Alex Finlay’s breakout hit Every Last Fear, and we’re overflowing with anticipation for his must-read follow-up, The Night Shift!”
