20 Best Thriller Audiobooks to Get Your Heart Racing


December 17, 2019
Few stories lend themselves to audio better than thrillers. Not only does listening give you time to play detective and try to figure out the mysteries with the characters, but it also adds to the suspense. There’s no way to quickly flip through the tense, nerve-wracking parts—and that’s what makes hearing them so much more exciting. Whether you enjoy classic detective thrillers, or something more sinister and psychological, there are endless stories to choose from. Here are the 20 best thriller audiobooks to get you started.
