Paula Hawkins recommends
The Other Tenant (2024)
Lesley Kara
"Kara keeps you guessing until the final page."
Where You End (2024)
Abbott Kahler
"A perfectly paced, addictive thriller with a vicious twist."
Cold Summer (2023)
(DCI Castle, book 3)
James Ellson
"Intelligent and pacy thriller."
The Secret Hours (2023)
Mick Herron
"I doubt I'll read a more enjoyable novel all year. The Secret Hours has it all: thrilling action scenes, crackling dialogue, characters to infuriate and beguile, and a neatly intricate plot. And through it all cuts Herron's acerbic wit, its effect heightened by the glimpses he allows us, from time to time, from his world to ours."
Those We Thought We Knew (2023)
David Joy
"In every line of this outstanding novel, you feel David Joy's deep connection to the mountains he comes from and the people who live there. With his faultless ear for dialogue and exceptional sense of place, he has crafted a beautiful literary crime thriller about belonging and betrayal in rural America."
The List (2023)
Yomi Adegoke
"Intelligent, funny, topical, and impossible to put down."
