The Kind Worth Killing (2015)
Peter Swanson
"A work of lovely violence and graceful malevolence, The Kind Worth Killing slips into your life like a stiletto in the ribs. This is a book that launches Peter Swanson straight into the ranks of the killer elite, alongside Tana French and Gillian Flynn. He's the real deal."
thumb
Behind Her Eyes (2017)
Sarah Pinborough
"Lean and mean, dark and disturbing, this is the kind of novel that takes over your life. Sarah Pinborough slays."

Blood and Lemonade (2017)
(Hap and Leonard Collections)
Joe R Lansdale
"A true American Original."
thumb
The Forgotten Girl (2017)
Rio Youers
"Written with a brutal lyricism, a savage wit, and a killer instinct for suspense, it's a work that marks out Rio Youers as a big star."
thumb
Sea of Rust (2017)
C Robert Cargill
"A forty-megaton cruise missile of a novel... Visceral, relentless, breathtaking."
thumb
A Little Hatred (2019)
(Age of Madness, book 1)
Joe Abercrombie
"Highly recommended - a funny, finely-wrought, terrifically energetic work of high fantasy. Seek it out."
thumb
The Monster of Elendhaven (2019)
Jennifer Giesbrecht
"Jennifer Giesbrecht's The Monster of Elendhaven is a black tide of perversity, violence, and lush writing. I loved it."
thumb
Ninth House (2019)
(Alex Stern, book 1)
Leigh Bardugo
"Ninth House rocked my world. I could not get enough of Alex Stern, a heroine for the ages. With a bruised heart and bleeding knuckles, she risks death and damnation - again and again - for the people she cares about. I was cheering her on the whole way: from the first brilliant sentence of this book to the last."
thumb
Plain Bad Heroines (2020)
Emily M Danforth
"Plain Bad Heroines wears its brilliance lightly and like the Black Oxford apples described in these pages, it's dark, sweet, and addictive. Emily Danforth displays all the gothic wit of Edward Gorey and all the soaring metafictional ambitions of David Mitchell, alongside a generosity and humanity that is uniquely her own. Simply one of the best books I've read in the last decade."
thumb
Venus Remembered (2020)
Ray Bradbury and Jason J Marchi
"There's life on Venus! See for yourself... in two haunting, spectral stories of cold rain, poisoned jungle, and sickened hearts, penned by Ray Bradbury and Jason Marchi. As refreshing as an out-of-nowhere shower on a sun dazzling day."
thumb
The Last House on Needless Street (2021)
Catriona Ward
"A chilling and beautiful masterpiece."
