May Cobb recommends
Bad Habits (2021)
"I could not tear myself away from Amy Gentry's Bad Habits, an intoxicatingly propulsive thriller with Russian-doll-like plotting and searing prose set against a backdrop of toxic academia. With Special Topics in Calamity Physics meets Gillian Flynn & Megan Abbot vibes, I was wholly sucked into this seductive psychological suspense and its corkscrew-like twists and turns that held me in their grip until the final, jaw-dropping reveal that left me breathless."
The Vines (2021)
"Eerily timely and profoundly compelling, THE VINES is an unputdownable, unforgettable saga, the journey of a seemingly helpless, persecuted American woman who survives and battles back, against all odds; this first in what promises to be an explosive series signals the arrival of Shelley Nolden's masterful new voice in hybrid fiction."
River, Sing Out (2021)
"If you read one novel this year, make it this one. James Wade's River, Sing Out, is an instant classic filled with characters that will break your heart, lyrical prose as haunted as the river it evokes, and a Southern Noir undertow that wholly sucks you in and keeps you turning the pages until it's searing, masterful conclusion."
The Last Commandment (2021)
(Austin Grant of Scotland Yard, book 1)
"Scott Shepherd is a dazzling storyteller, whose authentic and richly textured characters and clever, pulsating plotting captivate. THE LAST COMMANDMENT is a riveting and wondrously satisfying thriller with that all too rare commodity: abundant heart and soul."
The Stranger in the Mirror (2021)
"I devoured this twisty, chilling, and hypnotic thriller in just two feverish sittings, desperate to guess what was going to happen next (but failing!) Told from shifting perspectives, THE STRANGER IN THE MIRROR is not only a propulsive, psychological suspense with heart-pounding twists, it’s also a richly-drawn, riveting story about a woman with amnesia, frantic to recover her identity in a house-of-mirrors world where nothing is what it seems."
