The HBO® and Cinemax® July free preview is the perfect time to discover new summertime thrillers. Two great options are Sharp Objects and C.B. Strike.

Sharp Objects, adapted from the Gillian Flynn novel of the same name, centers around a murder mystery in the fictional town of Wind Gap, Missouri. Amy Adams stars as crime reporter Camille Preaker, who is actually from the town where the crime took place. As she works hard to discover the truth behind the murder of 2 girls, she will also be forced to confront the demons of her past.

C.B. Strike, based on the best-selling novels by J.K. Rowling, follows war veteran turned private detective, Cormoran Strike, as he tackles the crimes that the London police can’t solve. Tom Burke stars as Strike, and Holliday Grainger plays Robin Ellacott, his fearless assistant. With Ellacot by his side and the skills that he picked up in the military, Strike is well-prepared to tackle whatever may come his way.

Make sure to watch the premiere of Sharp Objects, Sunday, July 8 at 9pm ET/PT on HBO® and catch new episodes of C.B. Strike Fridays at 10pm ET/PT on Cinemax®.
