The Screenwriter (2024)
Amanda Reynolds
"In this creepy, addictive page-turner, Amanda Reynolds plays with the toxicity of fame, and has you looking over your shoulder until the very last page."
The Pieces of Us (2023)
Caroline Montague
"Tender and moving."
The Sight (2023)
Melanie Golding
"In The Sight, Melanie Golding deftly conjures up the entrancing world of a travelling circus, and then takes us backstage to see its secrets, family rivalries, and Faith: an intrepid trapeze artist with the 'gift' of second sight. Like a fairground ride, this story spins us round with different versions of the truth and a dizzying sense of terror. A captivating tale, which will tantalise you until the very last page."
