I love the ones with surprise endings. Any suggestions? Nothing supernatural, please. Thanks!

"The Silent Patient" by Alex Michaelides. 

 

"The Kind Worth Killing" by Peter Swanson.

 

Two very good thrillers with endings one doesn't see coming.

Here's a few that I really enjoyed and the endings were shocking!

 

The Wives

The Last Mrs. Parrish

A Stranger on the Beach

My Lovely Wife

The Other Woman

Behind Closed Doors

 

I also agree with the other two mentioned, both were very good as well. The Kind Worth Killing was one of my most favorite psychological thriller books! These are my favorite type of books to read!

SHIVER by ALLIE REYNOLDS and SANITORIUM by SARAH PEARSE; psychological thrillers is my preferred genre!  These 2 were fabulous!

Re: Psychological thrillers?

Just finished Win by Harlan Coben.  It was highly recommended in a mystery and thriller group on Facebook but I found it to be very disappointing. I started The Kind Worth Killing today and I think I am really going to enjoy it! Thanks, everyone, for the suggestions. Just added them all to my list!
