It was my first SK novel and I'm still in love with that book, I love that specific genre. I guess it would be defined as suspense? The whole psychological aspect really appeals to me. Does anybody know of other books that are similar to Duma Key?
I've already tried Bag of Bones and particularly enjoyed Lisey's story.
Would love to hear some suggestions!

Give The Talisman a try. He wrote it with Peter Straub. I cannot for the life of me understand why many of King's works are always being rebooted on film/TV and yet this book hasn't been turned into a mini-series. As an incentive to read it: one of the feature characters is a werewolf. :)

Actually, now that I think about it, the more suspense-driven stuff would be Misery, Gerald's Game, or Dolores Claiborne. Desperation is pretty good too.
