A thriller is a book which is designed to keep the reader or viewer on edge with suspenseful and sensational action. This genre is incredibly large, and thrillers often overlap with pieces of work produced in other genres; mysteries, for example, are often thrillers.

Several characteristics help to define a thriller. Thrillers typically involve sudden plot twists and lots of red herrings, for example, keeping people unsure about what is going to happen. This suspense can get almost unbearable. Thrillers also have a lot of action, which is often chaotic, and they typically feature resourceful heroes and exotic settings.
