Tom Benjamin recommends
The Unspeakable Acts of Zina Pavlou (2023)
Eleni Kyriacou
"Stunning. Eleni Kyriacou brilliantly evokes the true case of the second from last woman to be hung in a fictionalised account that will have the reader equally gripped and outraged."
A Month in Provence (2023)
Gillian Harvey
"It was wonderful to escape to Provence... [and] a joy to follow Nicky's resuscitation of a languishing French hotel as she comes to terms with her own past (and possible future?!) in a brilliantly written, uplifting read."
You Can Run (2023)
Trevor Wood
"A masterclass in suspense ... vividly-drawn villagers take on a foe that exudes genuine menace. Wood has distilled the authenticity and wry humour of his Jimmy Mullen trilogy into this compulsive thriller. Be careful picking it up - you won't want to put it down!"
