  68. Ruth Rendell is the best. She also wrote as Barbara Vine. The Killing Doll is one I always remember but she wrote many more. Besides the psychological thrillers, she wrote Inspector Wexford mysteries, so you can skip those.

  99. Have you read Gillian Flynn’s other novels? Dark Places and Sharp Objects are both very good! I also recommend Ted Dekker. His psychological thrillers are too often overlooked but he’s a wonderful writer. Try Skin or House for straight psychological thrillers and Boneman’s Daughters or The Bride Collector for serial killer stories. His books are always a wild ride!
