Susan Hill recommends

Melmoth (2018)
Sarah Perry
"Sarah Perry is a wonderful writer, the real thing. Her new novel Melmoth packs a punch of atmosphere, creepiness, fear and melancholy. I am going to move it off my bedside table because it is haunting my sleep."
thumb
The Mitford Murders (2017)
(Mitford Murders, book 1)
Jessica Fellowes
"Oh how delicious! This terrific start to what promises to be a must-read series is exactly what we all need in these gloomy times. Inventive, glittering, clever, ingenious. I devoured The Mitford Murders... so will you."
thumb
The Upstairs Room (2017)
Kate Murray-Browne
"The Upstairs Room is the real thing. Frightening and clever and full of atmosphere."
