Sticks and Stones (2018)
Jo Jakeman
"A revenge thriller to make you punch the air in solidarity."
A Place to Lie (2018)
Rebecca Griffiths
"A tense, brooding thriller which lays bare the dark currents of rural life; its secrets, lies and the sheer brutality which festers beneath the surface of seemingly idyllic village communities. With its sharp-eyed characterisation, expert plotting, and evocative prose, The Primrose Path marks Rebecca Griffiths as a future star of the domestic noir genre."
Black Widows (2020)
Cate Quinn
"The marriage thriller given a wicked new twist. Claustrophobic, intense and absolutely gripping Black Widows announces the arrival of a major new talent into the halls of domestic noir."
Sleep Tight (2021)
(Rose Gifford, book 1)
C S Green
"A smart police procedural with an unnerving supernatural spin, Sleep Tight promises great things for CS Green's new series and introduces an intriguing and complex lead."
Fragile (2021)
Sarah Hilary
"A beguiling thriller of considerable ambition and ingenuity, Fragile marks Sarah Hilary as a twenty-first century du Maurier, a writer who plunges the depths of human nature, finding the darkest, most deviant corners, but also the fleeting hopes and brittle aspirations. This is a truly outstanding work of modern gothic."
