Dark, Dark Read-alikes for “In a Dark, Dark Wood”

Shelf RenewalI don’t know why we still read books that make us want to leave the lights on at night, lock all our doors, and interrogate our significant others about whether or not they’re really impostors living out a decades-long charade to make us slowly lose our minds—but the best-seller list doesn’t lie. The latest book to make readers delightfully on edge is Ruth Ware’s debut, In a Dark, Dark Wood. Secrets, lies, old friends called together for a reunion in a secluded glass house—this suspense thriller has it all. Point ravenous readers to these other tales of doubt and deceit.
