Top Ten FOB Summaries for Psychological Thriller Novels

FOB (front of book) summary is usually one or two short, sharp, straight-to-the-point lines to, in addition with the title, "advertise" the nature of the novel. Its purpose is to reach out to a potential reader and entice him/her to buy. A FOB summary has to make your pupils dilate and your palms become sweaty in anticipation for what the rest of the book has in store. It can make or break the decision to buy, so it has to capture the imagination.
A good FOB summary example is Stephen King's Misery: "Paul Sheldon used to write for a living, now he's writing to stay alive"
Some items listed are penned myself and some are what I've already seen on novels.
Feel free to let your imagination create your own FOB summary, add any which you've seen and liked or vote for an existing item.
