Flynn Berry recommends
Kill Show (2023)
Daniel Sweren-Becker
"Riveting, original, and chillingly plausible, Kill Show is both an urgent reckoning with the ethics of true crime and a tense, twisty mystery in its own right. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough."
Bright Young Women (2023)
Jessica Knoll
"Blistering and powerful, Bright Young Women is an almost unbearably vivid story of sisterhood and survival. With razor-sharp skill, Jessica Knoll deconstructs the myth of a criminal mastermind, revealing the women he seeks to destroy as the truly brilliant ones."
My Murder (2023)
Katie Williams
"Captivating and provocative, My Murder is at once a tense mystery and a bracing take on the realities of early motherhood. It's a sinister, daring thriller, with an absolute corker of an ending that I never saw coming."
Blaze Me a Sun (2023)
Christoffer Carlsson
"Blaze Me a Sun is at once a crime novel and a gripping study in how we struggle to understand our own lives."
People Like Them (2021)
Samira Sedira
"Icy and chilling, People Like Them is an investigation both of a crime and of the society that nurtured it. The novel’s precise, vivid writing brings to mind two other knock-outs from France, The Adversary by Emmanuel Carrère and Based on a True Story by Delphine de Vignan. In sharply drawn sentences, Sedira summons the beauty of a small French village, and the shocking acts of the people inside it."
Foxlowe (2016)
Eleanor Wasserberg
"Foxlowe is gorgeous and seductive. The story propels you toward an ending that feels both shocking and inevitable, and the last line is a stunner. I was completely gripped."
