The Top Ten

1 The Truth - Peter James

The very first Peter James novel I ever read. This book very quickly made Peter James my favourite author. - Britgirl

2 The Ladykiller - Martina Cole
3 Misery - Stephen King

When it comes to thrillers and scary literature, you can't beat SK. Especially Misery. - Beatlesboy9

4 YOU - Caroline Kepnes
5 You're Mine Now - Hans Koppel
6 The Neighbour. - Lisa Gardner
7 Never Knowing - Chevy Stevens
8 Drawn To The Grave - Mary Ann Mitchell

This was the very first thriller I ever read back in 1999. It's a great contrast to the Sweet Valley High novels I used to read. Once I finished this book, I never picked up a teenage romance story ever again. This really is a thrilling read. With a very clever title. - Britgirl

And many more incredible reviews about this novel, particularly praising the ending. This novel really does live up to the hype. I've never before read such a shocking and unexpected ending. Read it before somebody spoils it for you and then read it again, and again and... - Britgirl
