Christina Dalcher recommends
The Two Lives of Louis & Louise (2019)
"Not often does a story remind us of what beautifully complex creatures we are. Julie Cohen has given us that rare gift."
"David Bell once again plunges the Everyman (or woman) into situations both ordinary and extraordinary. Subtle, insightful, and very human, Layover brings to mind the best of James M. Cain."
Cold Storage (2019)
"Koepp has resurrected Crichton, injecting every page with dark humour and humanity. You’ll be laughing one minute and checking your long-term survival plan the next."
The Better Liar (2020)
"THE BETTER LIAR is the best type of fiction a fast-paced read that will leave you thinking long after turning the final page."
"Megan Angelo has crafted an eerie masterpiece about the world we live in and the world we don't want to live in. Followers will make you reconsider whether you really want your fifteen minutes of fame."
The Last Day (2020)
Andrew Hunter Murray
"A thrilling page-turner, and a reminder to treasure our sunsets and sunrises while we still have them. I couldn’t put this book down!"
