More dark thrillers by women?

Another ReadMe Question. Lately I've been really enjoying literary-leaning thrillers and mystery type books authored by women. Can you recommend some more?

Recently I've read Gone Girl, We Need to Talk About Kevin, In the Woods, Notes on a Scandal, and We Have Always Lived in the Castle. Really into these books.
I think why I like them is: 1) The writing is very good, "literary"; 2) They are page turners. They have intriguing plots that move along; 3) They are dark; 4) They are all very creative somehow, either in the story or the structure or both. Not your run-of-the-mill thrillers, so to speak; 4) They are written by women.
I'd like to read more books like this. Can you recommend some?
Thanks! You guys are the best.
