Ten top creepy psychological thrillers

Jane Robins is the author of White Bodies: An Addictive Psychological Thriller.

One of her ten favorite creepy psychological thrillers, as shared at Publishers Weekly:
Into the Darkest Corner by Elizabeth Haynes

In her debut, Haynes creates an outstanding malevolent character in Lee Brightman–the handsome, charismatic boyfriend who turns out to be obsessive, manipulative and dangerous. What makes this thriller stand out in a crowded field is the chilling atmosphere that pervades each page as the narrator, Catherine Bailey, realizes that Lee is messing with her mind, "gaslighting" her, by moving small items in her apartment when she is out; making it clear that he’s getting closer all the time. In addition, the pacing is brilliant, and the plotting superb.
