Today on Top Five Friday I thought I would share my top five psychological thrillers with you. There are some fantastic books out there in this genre but I’m going with the ones that stuck with me long after I finished them.
Between You And Me remains one of my top reads, as I never seen the twist coming until it hit me in the face. This was Lisa Hall’s debut novel. and what a debut, it’s well written and a superbly plotted Psychological thriller with the mother of all twists.
Behind Her Eyes is one that will certainly mess with your head and it certainly deserves the hashtag #WTFthatending. I did have to suspend belief as Behind Her Eyes reached its dramatic and shocking conclusion now this usually leaves me feeling short changed, but my god Sarah Pinborough has written such a unique story I was happy to fall for it hook, line and sinker, and yes I did think “WTF” just happened?

A Suitable Lie was an amazing book never have I felt so emotionally drained after reading a novel. Whilst reading this book I experienced so many emotions, anger, bewilderment and intense dislike to name but a few. A Suitable Lie has to be one of the most unsettling and disturbing stories I have read in a long time.
I See You never lets up on the suspense and manages to maintain it right until the chilling conclusion. There were plenty of “heart in your mouth” moments, which made this book impossible to put down.
This is an absolute cracker of a read and what a compelling and unsettling thriller Her Husband’s Lover by Julia Crouch turned out to be. I have read numerous novels that have been described as domestic noir, but this one takes you somewhere much darker, it’s disturbing and uncomfortable at times, but it’s a hell of a twisted tale
