Alan Bradley recommends
thumb
Emperor (2022)
John Fullerton
"John Fullerton surely ranks high among the gods of thriller writers. His 'Emperor' is taut, polished and as throat-gripping as you're likely to find in this world."

The Murder of Mr. Wickham (2022)
(Mr Darcy & Miss Tilney Mystery, book 1)
Claudia Gray
"Jane Austen is spinning in her grave: she's trying to climb out and shake Claudia Gray's hand. The Murder of Mr. Wickham delivers in spades--and in diamonds, hearts, and clubs!"

Fortune Favours the Dead (2020)
(Pentecost and Parker, book 1)
Stephen Spotswood
"Bullets, blood, bodies, and belly-laughs: all the ingredients of a classic mystery novel. Stephen Spotswood hard-boils with the best of ‘em!"
