Seven psychological thrillers with manipulative men narrators

Lisa Levy is a columnist and contributing editor at LitHub and CrimeReads.

Given the popularity of domestic suspense it’s not surprising that writers are starting to subvert expectations of what the genre can do. To wit, we’ve seen a number of domestic suspense novels told from the male point of view, in which the couple is in cahoots or the woman—or wife–is gaslighting her man.

My Lovely Wife is among Margot Hunt's top five villains who have had about enough of domestic life.
