Emma Christie recommends
Crow Moon (2024)
(Martha Strangeways Investigation, book 1)
Suzy Aspley
"Exceptionally atmospheric and excruciatingly tense - a belter."
The Unspeakable Acts of Zina Pavlou (2023)
Eleni Kyriacou
"A hugely powerful book. Beautifully written characters and a gripping story that's at times agonisingly tense, at others deeply moving. You'll be thinking about this book for weeks after you finish reading. Easily one of the best books you'll read this year."
Silent Waters (2023)
L V Matthews
"It me less than 24 hours to read this and I'm still reeling - so intense, so tangled, so beautifully written and utterly, brilliantly claustrophobic."
