Ten top thrillers with supernatural elements

Philip Fracassi is the author of the award-winning story collection, Beneath a Pale Sky, which received a starred review from Library Journal, was named “Best Collection of the Year” by Rue Morgue Magazine, and was a finalist for the Bram Stoker award.

His previous story collection, Behold the Void, was named “Best Collection of the Year” from both This Is Horror and Strange Aeons Magazine.

His novels include Don’t Let Them Get You Down, A Child Alone with Strangers, Gothic, and Boys in the Valley.

At CrimeReads Fracassi tagged ten of his "favorite novels that meld supernatural horror with awesome mysteries and breakneck thrillers," including:
J. Todd Scott, The Flock

Crime writer J. Todd Scott (The Chris Cherry trilogy, Lost River) entered new territory with his novel, The Flock, which incorporates bizarre elements involving mystic cults, the apocalypse, and borderline paranormal elements surrounding the weather and the unusual deaths of thousands of birds to create an intriguing, multi-layered thriller. Readers will be kept on their toes as they wade through action-packed chase sequences, epistolary clues in the form of coroner reports and news articles, and (quite possibly) the end of the world, all wrapped-up together in this taut, electrifying genre-mashup.
