Mary Torjussen is the author of several popular psychological thrillers, including her latest, The Girl I Used to Be.
I have only read the author’s latest novel, which was published in 2017, but she has right away become one of my favorite writers of this genre.
The book pulls you in and then grips you by the throat with one surprise after another. It’s really a chilling read and now I can’t wait to see what Mary Torjussen will write next.
Since her books are all standalone thrillers, there is no real order of books to read them in, however I will list them based on the year of publication.
Mary Torjussen Books In Order
- My Time, Your Time, 2014
- The Lonely Cool Before Dawn, 2014
- Gone Without a Trace, 2017
- The Girl I Used to Be, 2018
