Kia Abdullah recommends
The Switch (2024)
Lily Samson
"The Switch is a razor-sharp thriller that simmers with a sense of menace. Dark, twisty, and deliciously sexy, it takes complex themes and weaves them into a gripping premise. Money, class, power, and deception are all explored with skill."
Long Time Dead (2024)
(Detective Sheridan Holler, book 1)
T M Payne
"T. M. Payne is one of the most exciting new voices in crime fiction. In Long Time Dead, she crafts a richly-textured thriller that brims with authentic detail. I loved the humor, the poignancy and the intricate rendering of Liverpool in all its heart and grit. The comparisons to Val McDermid are well earned indeed."
The Trials of Lila Dalton (2024)
L J Shepherd
"L. J. Shepherd is one of the most exciting new voices in crime fiction. In The Trials of Lila Dalton, she crafts a psychological tour de force reminiscent of Dennis Lehane. Grand, ambitious and achingly atmospheric, it may just be the cleverest novel I've read all year."
