Sabine Durrant recommends
The Missing One (2014)
Lucy Atkins
"Beautifully written and compelling . . . a wonderful thriller that is also such a strong portrayal of motherhood."
Under the Sun (2017)
Lottie Moggach
"Brilliantly atmospheric and creepy . . . I loved the heat of it, the writing, and the pulse of disappointment and hope. It's very, very clever."
All the Hidden Truths (2018)
(DI Helen Birch, book 1)
Claire Askew
"This is a such a clever, brave book. Askew looks unflinchingly at the unimaginable, but her writing is wrought with compassion. It's as heart-rending as it is gripping."
You Let Me In (2018)
Lucy Clarke
"Wonderfully atmospheric with a brilliantly creepy setting and deliciously shifty characters. I gulped it in."
The Eighth Girl (2020)
Maxine Mei-Fung Chung
"I am so impressed. I love Chung's writing: The sheer joy she takes in the tones of the separate personalities, and the skill of her negotiation of what is actually a very complicated plot. It's a brave and ambitious book."
Fragile (2021)
Sarah Hilary
"So Gothically creepy and addictive, brilliant characters and set up, but most of all just beautifully written."
Widowland (2021)
(Widowland, book 1)
C J Carey
"I am in awe at the author's imagination, her ability to conjure and so cleverly convey an entire world - it manages to feel both chillingly dystopian and utterly realistic. I love the details of the office, and Rose's flat, and her bus rides, but most of all I loved the description of the Oxford Widowlands, and the women who inhabit it - Viva the Friedas!"
