A Lesson in Cruelty (2024)
Harriet Tyce
"An edge-of-your-seat thriller and a brilliant, furious meditation on the modern prison system. Harriet Tyce's eye for people - their foibles, missteps, and cruelties - is sharp as a blade."
thumb
The Wrong Sister (2024)
Claire Douglas
"This is a book that won't leave you be. It's a brilliant jigsaw of suspicious characters, grisly deeds, and family tragedy - and Douglas only lets you see the full picture on the very last page."
thumb
Nightwatching (2024)
Tracy Sierra
"Few novels have affected me like this one. Nightwatching is acutely frightening and beautifully written, as tender as it is terrifying. I can't remember rooting for a character quite so hard!"
