Ten top books about voyeurs

Peter Swanson is the author of three novels: The Girl With a Clock For a Heart, a LA Times Book Award finalist; The Kind Worth Killing, winner of the New England Society Book Award, and finalist for the CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger; and his most recent, Her Every Fear.

For the Guardian, he tagged ten top books about voyeurs, including:
You by Caroline Kepnes (2015)

Joe Goldberg, the lovelorn homicidal maniac who narrates You, is obsessed with Guinevere Beck from the moment she enters the bookstore where he works. Thus begins a courtship that involves an enormous amount of voyeurism, both the old-fashioned window-peeping kind, as well as its modern version – stalking on social media sites across the net. Funny, disturbing, timely, and just a little bit romantic.
