I found Gillian Flynn's "Sharp Objects" disturbing.


I found Sharp Objects more distressing than disturbing because of the unreliable narrator.
  One recent read I found bleak and disturbing is Schenkel, Andrea Maria's
'The Murder Farm' (translated by Anthea Bell). A slim little book, that like Truman Capote's In Clod Blood, details the murder of a family in a postwar Germany. It reads via a series of police reports and recollections of the locals who liked near the farm.
