Squeaky Clean (2023)
Callum McSorley
"A manic tale of blood and suds told with laconic humour and warmly engaging characterisation. Callum McSorley is definitely a talent to watch. I knew within a page that I was in good hands."
thumb
The Homes (2022)
J B Mylet
"Tense yet tender, as moving as it is gripping... set to be one of the Scottish crime books of the year. I loved it."
thumb
You Never Said Goodbye (2022)
Luca Veste
"A truly pulse-pounding thriller. The relentless tension is leavened only by its heart-rending emotion."
