Stephen Booth recommends
Death Duty
Death Duty (2004)
Clare Littleford
"Unsettling and memorable... One of the most subtly disturbing novels I've read in a long time."

Deity (2012)
(D. I. Damen Brook, book 3)
Steven Dunne
"A gripping serial killer story with an exceptional depth of humanity, Deity delves into the darkest corners of human motivation. DI Damen Brook is one of the most memorable characters in recent British crime fiction. The city of Derby finally has a copper to match anything Edinburgh or Oxford can produce! Dark and twisted, but DI Brook has an intense emotional core."

The Viper (2012)
Håkan Östlundh
"Another Scandinavian star has been born into the world of crime fiction. Don't miss out on Hakan Ostlundh!"
