I've started to get into psychological thrillers, read Girl on a Train in a day and half way through Behind Closed Doors. Any more good one to recommend? TIA

Into the Darkest Corner by Elizabeth Haynes is very good.

Before I Go To Sleep by S J Watson. I didn't enjoy this by lots of others have.

MermaidofZennor Sat 08-Oct-16 05:49:28

But others have ...

Will think of a few more later.

I really enjoyed I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh. Couldn't put it down and there's a very clever twist!

MermaidofZennor Sat 08-Oct-16 07:12:09

A few more ...

Belinda Bauer's Exmoor Trilogy - Blacklands, Dark Side and Finders Keepers
And anything else by Belinda Bauer - I really rate her as a writer of good psychological thrillers
The Farm by Tom Rob Smith
Apple Tree Yard by Louise Doughty
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

Disclaimer by Renee Knight (thought this was pretty bad but others have enjoyed it, so may just be me)

I second the recommendations from Mermaid. Into the darkest corner was just a total page turner as as Before I go to sleep. Also the MIllenium trilogy ( First one girl with a dragon tattoo)

Thanks all
I finished Brhind Closed Doors at 2am last night I couldn't put it down!
I've read the Elizabeth Haynes one and loved it so much I messaged her on FB (she was a new author then) and she replied I was very star struck grin

Bookmarking thread think I will go for Exmoor trilogy next

The Kind Worth Killing.
Anything by Nicci French.

place marking to come back to. Have read a few in here and liked them. But didn't enjoy Girl on a Train or Gone Girl.

PolterGoose Sat 08-Oct-16 20:30:07

Ruth Rendell writing as Barbara Vine's books were my favourites for years. Must re-read...

Kai1977 Sun 09-Oct-16 16:51:28

Sabine Durrant and Harriet Lane have a few books between them that I really enjoyed.

bumpetybumpbumpbump Sun 09-Oct-16 17:21:02

When I'm in the mood I love a good, pacy psychological thriller -Sabine durrant, mark Edwards etc. I think it comes from days of devouring point horror and point crime as a kid!

If you like psych thrillers you will like behind closed doors _i really enjoyed it and read it in a day.brew

Place firmly and unashamedly marked. Read quite a few of the recommended ones . Burning air was a good page turner I recently read.

tripfiction Mon 10-Oct-16 18:57:23

Just finished Michael J Malone's "A Suitable Lie", domestic noir set in Ayr, very readable...

ireadnovels Mon 10-Oct-16 19:27:11

I read thrillers all the time. My favourite
Killing Kate by Alex Lake. Between you and Me Lisa Hall. Only Daughter Anna Snoekstra. The Art Teacher Paul Read A tapping at my Door David Jackson. The Mountain in my Shoe Louise Beech. The Ice Beneath her Camilla Crebe

The One That Got Away by Simon Wood was brilliant, I read it in a couple of days and was at the edge of my seat the whole time. Highly recommended.

BloodyDifficultWoman Mon 10-Oct-16 23:31:55

Marking place, thanks to all so far. Gone Girl's author wrote two others which were fab imo.

FlyHighLittleBee Mon 10-Oct-16 23:41:05

Placemarking, sorry grin

The80sweregreat Wed 12-Oct-16 16:53:56

oh good! I love Erin's work. The burning air was simply brilliant.
also waiting for JK Rowling to write another Cormoran Strike/ Robin book. They are thrillers and very well done.
I also like Ruth rendall, but not read any of the more recent books. As Barbara Vine she was also very good, a dark adapted eye was very intense, although its quite old now.
