If you like psychological thrillers, maybe check out "The Collector" by John Fowles. It was a really fascinating and enjoyable read.

From the book description on Amazon: tale of obsessive love--the story of a lonely clerk who collects butterflies and of the beautiful young art student who is his ultimate quarry.

John Fowles told the story in the form of a personal journal which made it all the more powerful and interesting. In the first half of the book, the story was told from the clerk (kidnapper's) perspective and then in the second half, it was told from the captive's perspective.
I've heard of it. It was used as part of the plot of an episode of Criminal Minds.

It was also a movie starring Terence Stamp and Samantha Eggar and directed by William Wyler, who interestingly turned down The Sound of Music to do it.

The first two novels of the Kovac/Liska series are phenomenal:

Ashes to Ashes

Dust to Dust

The author, Tami Hoag, earned her reputation with romance novels, but proved she could write a murder mystery / crime thriller with the best of them. Move over James Patterson and Michael Connelly. Hoag has the writing chops to stand up to a direct comparison with anyone. Evil villain? Check. Whodunit? Check. Memorable investigators? Double check (and not the two Minnesota detectives).
I didn't know she was a romance writer. That probably explains why I haven't liked the romance parts of some of her mystery/thrillers. I did enjoy the Kovac and Liska characters. According to stopyourekllingme.com, a new book in that series is due out soon.

Anything by Gregg Hurwitz grabs me from the first page and don't let go until the last:

I have read the following books by him and enjoyed them all:

Do No Harm
I See You
Or She Dies
The Survivor
The Tower
The Kill Clause

Never heard of him. Are they stand-alone novels or part of a series?

They are all stand-alone novels except the Tim Rackley series:

TR 01 - The Kill Clause v4.prc
TR 02 - The Program.mobi
TR 03 - Troubleshooter - v5.azw3

Some of them have a different title in the USA:

I see you (aka The Crime Writer)
We Know (aka Trust No One)
Or She Dies (They're Watching)

Vertical Run by Joseph Garber.

Quote:
You think YOU had a killer workday. . .
Get ready for the FASTEST thriller of the summer!

Each morning in his 45th floor executive office, David Elliot savors the quiet
moments until the workday begins.

Until today, when his boss walks in and aims a gun at him.

For the rest of the day, he will be trapped in his midtown office building, and
everyone David Elliot meets will try to kill him.

He has 24 hours to find out why. . .

In Vertical Run, you can escape into a world on fast forward, a drama
that plays out with electrifying intensity. No one who reads this book will
ever see the office the same way again.

Gillian Flynn

I believe Gillian Flynn's books qualify as thrillers - love them all. Also Patricia Highsmith's Ripley series!

A book that I've just finished and that could be put in the thriller/fantasy genre is The Secret of Crickley Hall by James Herbert. I would recommend it to late teens and adults only since there are some graphic descriptions.

Seconding this. Hunt for Red October is the best thriller I've read. The Cardinal of the Kremlin was also quite good. That said, I've found Tom Clancy's work that doesn't deal with US/USSR politics to be worse than his US/USSR ones. And he seems to have weakness for basing his plots on protagonist being idiots - a 50/50 split so far.

I've also liked what I've read of Michael Crichton. Jurassic Park and Timeline are oldies but goodies.

I'm reading a book called Rumours of War by Michael Snow. It's a quick read, and a pretty good page turner. It has a Clancy feel to it, but it's not as grand in scale as some of his books. I think it's his first novel. Some of his characters are quite interesting. I'm enjoying it.
