We Only Carry Mysteries .... But We Can Order Almost Anything!

 

Suspense

Suspense

    Tension again. Similar to thrillers, but the danger is more likely to be psychological than physical, based more on expectation or fear of harm than on frankly hazardous situations. In this type of story, the main character is normally an innocent caught up in danger – think of North by Northwest. This is an area that may get blended with a touch or horror, which comes under the term "Gothic".

Here are some examples:
