"Witty, wise and tender. It's a marvel."
A Dangerous Crossing (2017)
"Thrilling, seductive, utterly absorbing."
The Witchfinder's Sister (2017)

See What I Have Done (2017)
"Eerie and compelling, Sarah Schmidt breathes such life into the terrible, twisted tale of Lizzie Borden and her family, she makes it impossible to look away."
Girl in Snow (2017)
"From its startling opening line right through to its stunning conclusion, Girl in Snow is a perfectly-paced and tautly-plotted thriller. Danya Kukafka's misfit characters are richly drawn, her prose is both elegant and eerie - this is an incredibly accomplished debut."
