We spent 27 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top options for this wiki. There's no substitute for that creeping feeling you get from deft plotting and believable danger. These suspense books are the kinds of page turners that'll make you check the locks three times before you go to bed, and then have you staying up all night deliciously terrified. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best suspense book on Amazon.
