At CrimeReads she tagged ten thrillers that "plumb the uneasy depths of obsession, navigating deep, dark waters to fully explore the minds of both the obsessed and the obsession." One title on the list:
Into the Darkest Corner, Elizabeth Haynes

When singleton Catherine meets charismatic Lee, she, and her friends, all quickly fall under his spell. But it soon becomes apparent there is a darker side to Lee. An interesting narrative structure that starts in the present day and goes back in time, documenting the full, disturbing story of a woman isolated and controlled until she trusts no one and can only rely on herself to escape. A gripping and at times, terrifying, read.
