Angie Kim recommends
Under the Storm (2024)
"Under The Storm is the quintessential crime novel - not only a brilliantly constructed whodunit about the unfolding of a murder investigation over three decades, but a profound and immersive portrait of the ripple effects of one act of crime, judgment, and doubt on a community. Christoffer Carlsson is a master at layering nail-biting suspense with psychological depth and acuity, and I can't recommend this book highly enough."
The Leftover Woman (2023)
"The Leftover Woman is an unforgettable, beautifully written page-turner that's about so many things at once: a courageous woman fighting to escape an abusive husband, a mother's love and sacrifice, and how culture and language dramatically change the lens through which we are seen and evaluated by others. Jean Kwok uses an intricately layered plot to ensnare and mesmerize us with fierce, complex characters. I absolutely adored this novel, from its tantalizing first pages to the poignant ending."
