Kill Me If You Can
2. Defending Jacobby William Landay A chilling psychological thriller about a lawyer whose 14-year-old son is accused of murder. You won't be able to put it down, and then you won't be able to get it out of your head.
Gone Girl is an AMAZING book. Loved it so much I spent my whole night in bed reading it while drinking hot chocolate.
The author, Gillian Flynn, wrote two books before Gone Girl (Sharp Objects and Dark Places) which are in the same psychological thriller genre. I recommend both if you like Gone Girl.
Red Dragon and The Silence of the Lambs are both great too. Not as good as the movies but still worth reading.
