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."
thumb
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."
thumb
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."
thumb
The Safe Place (2020)
Anna Downes
"An outstanding debut. The Safe Place is destined to be a book club favourite."
thumb
The Girl in the Mirror (2020)
Rose Carlyle
"Immensely entertaining, hugely original, highly recommended. Rose Carlyle takes the reader on a wild ride, across an ocean and into the depths of a family riven by greed, jealousy and subterfuge . . . Like sorbet for the jaded palates of hardcore thriller fans."
thumb
The Searcher (2020)
Tana French
"A tale of flawed characters, complex relationships and elusive loyalties. Subtle and powerful."
thumb
Snake Island (2020)
Ben Hobson
"Remarkable. Ben Hobson's characters are deeply flawed, deeply human and beautifully realised. Part Western, part Greek tragedy, part morality tale—yet wholly original."
