Serial killers, framed murderers, and possessed mothers — here are our top thrilling novels to read this season.

Other People's Clothes, Calla Henkel

On their year abroad in Berlin, art students Zoe and Hailey discover that their landlady is stealing details from their lives to write her next novel.

How to Kill Your Family, Bella Mackie

After being abandoned by her billionaire father, Grace Bernard sets out on the ultimate revenge: killing him and his entire family. But, just before reaching her father, she’s sent to prison for murder — one she didn’t commit. As her sentence becomes appealed, Grace writes down her original plan. An interesting read with an interesting protagonist, even if the deviation of narration seems tedious at times. 4/5 ★
