Recently, Vanessa Friedman wrote an article about this summer’s thrillers for The New York Times Book Review. You can find her piece here. https://nyti.ms/2RljsHC
The article lists seven thrillers. Of course, you can check the Web Store for those books. https://store.poisonedpen.com/
However, one of the mystery fields’ treasures, Grand Master Award Recipient Sara Paretsky, disagreed with Friedman’s comments about women who write thrillers.
You can find Paretsky’s rebuttal in the letters to the editor. https://nyti.ms/2WNC4Bh The letter includes a list of women authors who write in the field. If you want a short history lesson, check out Sara Paretsky’s piece. Then, check the Web Store for books by some of those authors. Better yet, check for books by Sara Paretsky. http://bit.ly/2WKkaj3
