Suggestions for intelligently written psychological thrillers and general fiction..

Hi!

I'm new to the forum and I would love to hear your recommendations for any of the following types of books:

(1) Psychological thrillers that are intelligently written and typically have a "wow/twist" ending (I LOVE Thomas H. Cook but I've read most of his books),

(2) ANY intelligently written fiction, especially those authors who make you think about life questions (but that's not mandatory)

Any suggestions you have - books and authors - are really appreciated. Thanks!!

Notes on a Scandal by Zoe Heller
The Alienist by Caleb Carr

And it's not a mystery/thriller, but Death of an Ordinary Man by Glen Duncan tackles some weighty questions.

Try Ursula LeGuin:

The Lathe of Heaven
The Dispossessed
The Left Hand of Darkness
