Who reads thrillers?

I occasionally found an expression “humid thriller”. Maybe, by any chance, someone knows what it means.

If it's printed by the publisher on or about the book itself, you can read it as bullshit/ advertising :)

I've seen that one a few times as well. I believe it refers to a suspenseful story set in a warm, southern location such as Florida or Louisiana.

I think it may be intended as a play on the expression "torrid thriller."
