Unputdownable crime /psychological thriller?

Feels like an age since I've had a book that I couldn't put down. Last one I really enjoyed was Apple Tree Yard, I think.

Any ideas?

I've just finished Sarah Waters Fingersmith. I couldn't put it down!

@ironickname yes, I've read that and thought the same! Would love something similar, actually!

Any of the recent Lisa Jewell ones, The Family Upstairs is the newest, really enjoyed it.

Claire McGowan I think it is, The Other Wife was quite good, read that last week. And have just started reading Little Face by Sophie Hannah and it seems quite promising and it's part of a series so optimistic about it.

I read a lot of psychological thrillers and I recommend I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh

Anything by Michele Davies !! Her books are fab !

The Dry by Jane Harper is really very good.

I See You by Clair Macintosh is also very good.

KondoKonvert Thu 21-Nov-19 19:56:44

I second I Let You Go. Her other books haven't been quite as good though.

Platform 7 by Louise Doughty. It really gripped me. I really wanted to put it dowm, but I couldn't

Nicci French, the Frieda Klein series or any of their stand alone thrillers. Peter James, Roy Grace series or his stand alone thrillers.

The Burning Air by Erin Kelly. What a twist!

The Dry is good actually. I need to remember to look for other titles by that author.

Blood orange by H Tyce. Loved it and reminded me of Apple Tree Yard. Very enjoyable read.

Stranger in the House, An Unwanted Guest

Another one for Sabine Durrant Lie with me. Love all her books, she's got a great style of writing.

I just finished The Last by Hanna Jameson in 2 days and was gripped the whole way through! 20 people are stranded in a Swiss hotel following a nuclear war and a body is found... mixture of survival story and murder mystery.

Tana French’s Dublin series is great too.

The Doll Factory

Social Creature

The Corset

The Woman Next Door

The Rumour by Lesley Kara

Maybe something by Sharon (SJ).Bolton? I remember quite enjoying her first book Sacrifice and a few others after that.
