As I’ve mentioned earlier this week, I’m becoming a big fan of domestic noir, or domestic thrillers. These are thrillers that are close to home (or are at home) These are some of my favourites so far (click on the cover to read my review):
Sophie Hannah’s Spilling CID stories
Yes, they involve police but they are also told from the victim’s POV. (It’s also perfectly OK to read them out of order).
Before We Met by Lucie Whitehouse
Nothing is as it seems in this marriage…
Beneath the Shadows by Sara Foster
A lost husband, a tiny village – who knows the secrets it hides?
Translated from the Japanese, his books are about everyday people in Japan – except somebody usually has a deadly secret…
You by Caroline Kepnes
After this book, you’ll never engage in conversation at a shop in the same way… (Kepnes also has a new book, Hidden Bodies, out this September!)
Orient by Christopher Bollen
An outsider in a small village, a creepy mutant creature and a killer…this is one scary winter coming up!
And of course, you’ve all read it, but Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn is right up there too.
What other books would you include under domestic noir/thriller? I’d love to hear your recommendations.
