Where They Lie (2024)
Claire Coughlan
"A thrillingly dark and atmospheric tale, richly evocative of its time, especially for those of us old enough to remember 1968."
thumb
The Helsinki Affair (2023)
Anna Pitoniak
"If you are one of those people--we are not a few--who think they don't write thrillers like they used to, then The Helsinki Affair is for you. An intricate, vigorously told and splendidly entertaining tale."
thumb
The Well of Saint Nobody (2023)
Neil Jordan
"One of the most inventive artists of our day."
