Paul Finch recommends

A Murder of Lies (2023)
(DCI Garrick Crime Thriller, book 7)
M G Cole
"Dark, grim, tense. A compelling new voice."
thumb
The Rule (2021)
David Jackson
"I really enjoyed The Rule. Jackson doesn't do cosy thrillers. There is dark, ultra dark, and then there is The Rule. You've been warned."
thumb
Right to Kill (2021)
(Joe Romano, book 1)
John Barlow
"Yorkshire Noir at its most authentic. A gritty, uncompromising thriller, but written from the heart."
