They say everyone has a novel inside them, waiting to get out… so what’s yours? We recently posed that question to the Reader’s Digest Community – that if you were sitting down to write the ultimate gripping thriller, what would be the title of your future best-seller? Here then are the ten best fake thrillers that should be real.
The Dreadful Hunt for Dawn
The Dreadful Hunt for Dawn, the Girl with the Maximum Ice Dagger Eyes – By Rob Preece
Judge’s comment: “What I love about this title is that Rob has combined elements of several blockbustery-sounding thrillers to come up with one all-encompassing super-thriller. It’s clearly a page-turner, and possibly even its own franchise in the making. Two thumbs up.”
The Seven Deadly Bins
The Seven Deadly Bins – By Kaye Armitage … is about a psychopathic garbo who maims and murders his victims before disposing of them in bins around the city, before ‘discovering’ the remains himself!
Judge’s comment: “Strong points for an excellent pun based on a highly resonant and familiar-sounding existing title. Actually a very decent plot too!”
