Lesley Glaister recommends
Little Sister (1998)
Carol Birch
"Illuminates that fine, sharp line between humour and sadness and brilliantly tackles the love, hate, resentment, pride that is often felt between siblings."
Skin and Bone (1998)
Gareth Creer
"Shocking and grimly funny... threaded with thrillerish tension."
Tommy Glover's Sketch of Heaven (2005)
Jane Bailey
"Absorbing, compelling and intensely moving."
My Perfect Silence (2006)
Penelope Evans
"Uneasily funny, sad and terrifying. I read the book very quickly, hardly daring to put it down."
The House at Midnight (2008)
Lucie Whitehouse
"An exciting, romantic, gripping story of secrets and suspense --- at once modern and classic in its form and content. I predict a big hit!"
Shadowing the Sun (2008)
Lily Dunn
"A marvellously engrossing, atmospheric and chilling read."
She Chose Me (2018)
Tracey Emerson
"If you enjoy tension, suspense and surprise, She Chose Me, Tracey Emerson’s brilliant debut novel is your next favourite read. Emerson ratchets up the suspense from the first page and never lets it go. Dignified by deft and ingenious plotting, forensically insightful characterisation and impeccable prose, this psychological thriller delivers on all levels."
