Andrew Greig recommends
thumb
Dark Water (2018)
Elizabeth Lowry
"Remarkable, powerful, at once realist and heightened, gothic, mythic, with sudden flashes of humour. It is a page-turner, a powerful re-invigoration of the historical novel, weighted with multiple resonances of Moby Dick, Mutiny on the Bounty and The Ancient Mariner."

Find Her First (2022)
Emma Christie
"A shocking end. Highly recommend!"
