I couldn't put down Survive the Night and I didn't want to try. Riley Sager's terrific heroine Charlie Jordan starts this thriller on the ride of her life and the action accelerates on every page, through twists and turns into the darkness. A high-octane narrative fueled by intensity, emotion, and danger, Survive the Night puts Riley Sager in the driver's seat of modern crime fiction
Noir at its best! This one-sitting-read of a thriller will grab you in the opening pages and simply not let go until the very (and very shocking) end. Author Sager is a master of creating both psychological suspense and richly drawn characters, both good, bad and somewhere in the middle. Bravo!
Riley Sager's premise is bone-chilling-what if you caught a ride from a guy who could be a serial killer?-and his writing is propulsive and gripping. Woven throughout is a clever nod to classic movies, which adds to the intricate architecture of this absolutely terrific book
[Sager's novels are] all creepily atmospheric, easy to read without being fluffy, and fun as hell. Each book has also been better and more confident than the last
Compulsively readable, pulse-poundingly tense with ingenious, gasp-worthy twists, Survive the Night is Hitchcockian film noir magic wrapped inside one of Sager's signature propulsive plots. A story about a ride share gone terribly wrong, this white-knuckle thriller kidnapped me and held me hostage as I raced through to its deliciously satisfying climax
All of Riley Sager's books take an established horror or thriller trope and give it a smart, knowing twist. This time, it's a creepy hitchhiking situation (with the added bonus of a '90s setting!)
