I just finished it. It reminded me of how i felt when i read magpies. Easy read but couldn't put it down. Any others you'd recommend lile that? Not gone girl. I saw the film so the twist is spoiled.

I love this genre and particularly TGOTT, so some of my recommendations are "disclaimer", "the lie", "I let you go" (one of my favourites so far), and "how I lost you" (fantastic read).
Will be watching the other answers closely too!

Have a look at Rachel Abott too, great author

I enjoyed Gillian Flynns(gone girl) other books,at the end of the kindle editions was a recommended reading list that had some good suggestions too.

Thanks for quick replies. I literally finished TGOTT last night and wanting more! Have started hyacinth girls by Lauren Frankel which seems ok so far. Definately hinting a twist. For others reading who like a twist, the best i ever read was We need to talk about kevin. I literally gasped!

Loved We Need to talk about Kevin. An older book with a twist is The Wasp Factory.
Any Chuck Palahniuk.

The Good Girl by Mary Kubicki is a similar kind of thing. Also the various Nicci French books.

I let you go by Claire Macintosh and The Bones of you by Debbie Howells.
Both good thrillers with a twisting storyline.

The Burning Air - Erin Kelly. For me,one of the best twists ever. Well-written too.

Have you read Before I go to sleep I preferred it to the film a real page turner

I agree about 'I Let You Go'. Never saw that twist coming at all. shock Really enjoyed 'Before I Go To sleep' as well.

Yy to the twist in "I let you go", I actually swore when I read that - DP wondered what had happened!

One of Gillian Flynns other books- think it's called dark shadows?
