Five top books about revenge

Fanny Blake's books include With a Friend Like You, The Secrets Women Keep, What Women Want, and Women of a Dangerous Age.

One of her five top books about revenge, as shared at the Daily Express:
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

The snowballing story of the disintegrating marriage of Amy and Nick Dunne opens with the disappearance of Amy on their fifth anniversary.

Nick is soon the prime suspect for her murder. But, as in the rest of this novel, appearances are deceptive.

Taking revenge on Nick for his infidelity and other failures as a husband, Amy has concocted a plot to destroy him that’s so devious, it’s brilliant.

But her plan for revenge spirals into something else. I can’t say more without plot-spoiling.
Read about the other books on the list.

Gone Girl made Monique Alice's list of six great fictional evil geniuses, Jeff Somers's lists of six books that’ll make you glad you’re single and five books with an outstanding standalone scene that can be read on its own, Lucie Whitehouse's ten top list of psychological suspense novels with marriages at their heart and Kathryn Williams's list of eight of fiction’s craziest unreliable narrators.
