Philippa East recommends
The Silence (2020)
Susan Allott
"Deeply engrossing … an exquisite literary thriller."
Imperfect Women (2020)
Araminta Hall
"A stunning example of the new breed of ''psychological thriller' with a deep dive into the conflicted worlds of three brilliantly-drawn female characters, irradiated by a terrible crime. A pitch-perfect, meticulously-observed and utterly absorbing novel."
Sleepless (2020)
Louise Mumford
"An original and action-packed thriller, with a perfectly unnerving premise that hooked me from the start."
The Favour (2021)
Laura Vaughan
"A heady tapestry of desires, secrets and entitled cruelties, suffused with the heat and shimmer of Italy... beautifully written, intoxicating... Fab!"
When They Find Her (2021)
Lia Middleton
"An unnerving and gripping thriller in which a split-second choice plunges the protagonist Naomi into a web of terror and lies. Deftly written and chillingly plausible ... a bold, compelling and clever debut."
The Colours of Death (2021)
Patricia Marques
"Patricia Marques debut takes the classic crime novel and the evocative setting of Lisbon, and utterly transforms both with a fascinating speculative twist. Pacy, immersive and brain-shiveringly clever. A brilliantly original crime story."
Her New Best Friend (2021)
Penny Batchelor
"A pacy thriller with a original cost of characters and stakes and jeopardy that build right to the end."
House of Whispers (2021)
Anna Kent
"Unsettling, tense and thought-provoking…this is a fresh new psychological thriller that – like Grace – completely got its hooks into me!"
