We know what you'll be reading this summer: 8 thrillers by female authors to pack in your suitcase

Prepping your holiday book list? Summer 2016 is all about taut thrillers from talented female authors. Gone Girl fans will love the Liz Nugent's Lying in Wait while those who can't get enough of BBC 3's drama Thirteen will be hooked by Hollie Overton’s Baby Doll.

You don't want to miss The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena, already one of this year's most talked about reads and Shannon Kirk's refreshing tome, The Method, has her earmarked as a name to watch.

Happy reading!
