This is what I'm looking for:

Psychological thriller

Petty theives and stealing

Man and a woman loving one another, but not a romance novel

Alcohol and drugs but not a drug heist.

Modern day novel, not historical.

 

Can you help me find a book like this or point me in the right direction?

I'm patient. I can wait.

 

Thanks so much for helping me with this,

I'm confused...are you trying to figure out the title of a specific book, or just looking for any books that meet the criteria you listed? Thanks...

Sounds a bit like The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

Hi,

No I am not looking for a particular book. I am looking for any book that meets this criteria.

 

Thanks so much!

Catherine Coulter's FBI series are good thrillers.

Harlan Coben books are also awesome.

Ridley Pearson's stuff has many of those requirements.  Same with John Sanford

I recently read Void Moon by Michael Connelly.  It has some of those characteristics and was very good.

Thank you so much for your help.

Keep them coming. I'm checking them out.

I'm trying to find some that don't have too much murder in them.

You might try Robert Goddard, every one has a new setting and characters. Very well written

Try Tana French.  Her first book is In the Woods

I agree with Harlan Coben and Tana French. AWESOME authors! Another good author is Dennis Lehane. His books aren't too heavy on murder, but they'll keep you guessing.
