SJI Holliday recommends
Blood Like Mine (2024)
Stuart Neville
"I haven't stopped thinking about this since I devoured it. A tense, dark thriller that combines jaw-dropping horror with gut-punching tenderness, this is a book that will get under your skin and stay there forever."
Delicate Condition (2023)
Danielle Valentine
"Pitch black horror meets smart psychological thriller in this fantastically moreish debut. I devoured it, feeling simultaneously sick and thrilled. And that ending... just perfect."
Fyneshade (2023)
Kate Griffin
"Absolutely pitch black brilliance. Dark, creepy and utterly compelling with characters who jump right off the page - this is gothic suspense at its very best."
