10 Riveting Marriage Thrillers

I came across another delightful article on the Huffington Post website titled 10 Marriage Thrillers That Will Chill You To The Bone by Lucie Whitehouse. In the article, Whitehouse writes:
As a subject, marriage has always attracted writers, of course. It's such an intimate relationship, and one that involves the things that concern people at the deepest levels: sex, money, children. And that's what makes it such rich material for psychological suspense: In these books, danger comes not from a faceless stranger but from the person who shares your bed. Your home -- the place where you imagine you're safest -- is actually the most dangerous place of all. 
Whitehouse additionally writes the following in her article:
For me, there are two factors at work. As we marry later and later, we're going into marriage with more to lose. After years of being independent, the idea of sharing our lives -- and control -- can be frightening. Second, we're living in the age of exposure, sharing details of our personal lives on Twitter, Facebook and reality TV as never before. When relationships are good, we happily post wedding photos, pictures of holidays, our pets and children, but when things turn sour... silence. And that, for a writer, is when things get really interesting.

I've not read any of the books listed in Lucie Whitehouse's article, but some of them do sound downright thrilling! Now I have more books than ever on my reading wishlist.


  1. I haven't read any of these either but I am dying to read Gone Girl!!!
