Chris Hammer recommends
She Lies in the Vines (2019)
Benjamin Stevenson
"A hugely-original premise, a guilt-ridden protagonist, a plot that won't lie down. A great debut."
Watching from the Dark (2020)
(DCI Jonah Sheens, book 2)
Gytha Lodge
"A brilliant premise, perfectly executed. A genuine page turner - it kept me guessing right until the end."
In the Clearing (2020)
J P Pomare
"Past and present collide in this taut and unpredictable thriller ... Twist follows twist and nothing is as it seems."
The Safe Place (2020)
Anna Downes
"An outstanding debut. The Safe Place is destined to be a book club favourite."
