Have you read Gillian Flynn's other novels? Is it thriller type novels you're looking for?

Or any good recommendations? How about The Corrections by Jonathan Franzen or The Secret History by Donna Tartt, The Little Friend also by Donna Tartt.

Gillian Flynn's Sharp Objects is great (was a bit less keen on her other one, Dark Places).

I just read Val McDermid's The Vanishing Point, which seemed to a me a good follow-on read. Raises tensions in a similar way.

The Burning Air by Erin Kelly is a gripping read with a great twist.

Yes def looking for another thriller.

Loved Secret History, haven't tried McDermid, isn't she a bit gruesome.

Also like Erin Kelly, tho haven't read her latest.

That was the only McDermid I've read, and no, it wasn't gruesome at all.

No I didn't think so either.
