Jack Heath recommends

The Woman in the Library (2022)
Sulari Gentill
"An enormously clever book. I lay awake thinking about it every night until I finished it."
thumb
Flight Risk (2019)
Michael McGuire
"You'd better assume the brace position, because Flight Risk takes the airport thriller genre to a whole new level. With rock-solid research, a ripped-from-the-headlines plot and a stunningly dark twist halfway through, this is one mystery that will keep you guessing from take-off until touchdown. You'll never board another plane without thinking of this book."
