Marisha Pessl's 6 favorite stories of suspense

Marisha Pessl's new novel is Neverworld Wake. One of her six favorite stories of suspense, as shared at The Week magazine:
The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt

I love how Tartt runs the mystery of a stolen 16th-century goldfinch painting through her sprawling narrative like a gleaming thread of gold as she explores life, death, art, the isolation of modern existence, and everything in between. The novel is a grand, roaring orchestra with a little haunting theme running throughout. Just beautiful.
Read about the other entries on the list.

The Goldfinch is one of Sophie Ward's six best books.
