Lindsay Jayne Ashford recommends
A Beautiful Poison (2017)
Lydia Kang
"An absolute gem for murder mystery fans, with a perfect period feel and fascinating forensic detail."
The Road Beyond Ruin (2019)
Gemma Liviero
"Poignant, thought-provoking, and cleverly written. The characters are drawn with such sensitivity that you feel you are there with them. A brilliant book and one that I would recommend to everyone."
Relative Fortunes (2019)
(Julia Kydd, book 1)
Marlowe Benn
"Marlowe Benn weaves a rollicking, sinuous portrait of 1920s New York. A story of passion, deceit, gaiety, and manipulation, Relative Fortunes is a hugely entertaining read, and Julia Kydd is a memorable protagonist."
