Kate Griffin recommends
The Betrayal of Thomas True (2024)
A J West
"Writing like a modern Fielding, A.J. West packs in humour, horror and a raging sense of injustice."
The Puzzle Wood (2024)
Rosie Andrews
"Wonderful. A dark, twisting immersive tale of deception & duplicity, skilfully embroidered with myth, murder & mystery. Gothic as it should be - beautifully written & crafted. Brava, Rosie Andrews."
What We Did In The Storm (2024)
Tina Baker
"A rip tide of a novel, plunging readers into a maelstrom of secrets, suspense and sins... A clever, compelling and superbly realised page-turner. Unputdownable."
