Sophie Draper recommends
The Killer Inside (2019)
"From the first page, you know you are in deliciously unsafe hands. Classy, twisty, and beautifully written, l loved every page."
When They Find Her (2021)
"Nightmarish, dark and twisty, I galloped to end. A domestic psychological drama with polish."
The Final Child (2021)
"The Final Child is such an elegant, well thought-through thriller. It takes the idea of victim and turns it on its head and breaks your heart in the process. I was sucked in for the first half and then whipped through the second half with my heart in my mouth. A fantastic follow-up to After the Eclipse."
