The Good Son by You-Jeong Jeong
The twists in The Good Son, written by You-Jeong Jeong, pack such a powerful punch that you'll repeatedly be left with your jaw hanging open as you read (seriously). The did-he-or-didn't-he thriller serves up similarities to The Bad Seed as it unravels the mystery of the death of a woman who may or may not have been viciously murdered by her own son, Yu-jin. The catch? He has barely any memories of the night his mother died in their home, despite being there the whole time. Yu-jin races to sift through the unreliable memories floating around his own head, which all seem to point toward a tragic, deeply disturbing conclusion.
