Jo Furniss recommends
The Underhistory (2024)
Kaaron Warren
"Totally unique, I haven't read anything like this for a long time, not since the heady days of Iain Banks' unpredictably dark novels. The sinister suspense that builds up as elderly Pera takes us on a tour of her ghostly family home is masterful. This book will stay with me for a long time."
The Potting Shed Murder (2024)
(Hill House Vintage Murder Mystery, book 1)
Paula Sutton
"A quintessentially English murder mystery. Paula Sutton brings a new voice to the cosy genre with her fresh take and witty twist on modern village life. Vintage crime!"
Five Nights (2024)
Rachel Wolf
"Agatha Christie meets Succession!... Just like the passengers, you'll be all adrift, not knowing who to believe. A compulsive drama."
