As for " Exactly what you're looking for", haven't I made my requirements for novel quite clear in my first post.
No, I mean to say that Event Horizon is exactly what your looking for......although in movie form instead of book.

If the OP can handle a shorter story, a novelette, then A Drop of Oil by Eric Frank Russell fits the bill perfectly.

Just finished Hull Zero 3 recommended on this thread. Enjoyed it a great deal but not what I would describe as pleasant so I guess it fits the bill.

The Wreck of the River of Stars - Michael Flynn

It's about the crew of a doomed ship, lots of science and lots of complex characters.

That's a fantastic book.

1. Has to be about few people(6-10) traveling in a space ship.
2. Novel must not have alien invasion as the main theme because then it will definitely contain numerous character.
3. If possible earth might not even be involved at all other than in some backstory stuff.
4. I am looking for some thing between Alien movies and Moon(not twilight) movie or even Dead Space (it's a PS3 game).
5. Avoid long series (except if it is a strong contender) because again i don't want to experiment (just this time). 1-3 books will do.
6. It can be a mix of following genres (in left to right order)- sci-fi, adventure, horror, action
If you are wondering why i am being so specific, its because i have had ample share of bad books and plus i always like such setting in stories.
The Gold at the Starbow's End by Frederik Pohl meets your every criteria, I think.

Boat of a Million Years by Poul Anderson gets to spaceships eventually!
