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."
From These Broken Streets (2020)
Roland Merullo
"From These Broken Streets is utterly compelling. War time Naples is brought vividly to life as Roland Merullo weaves together the lives of ordinary people, each heroic in their own way, struggling to survive in this beautiful but ravaged city… A moving and memorable story."
