Christobel Kent recommends
The Hidden Room (2017)
Stella Duffy
"Fast and bold and thrilling, The Hidden Room is an audacious take on the psychological thriller that turns the genre inside out."
The Day of the Accident (2018)
Nuala Ellwood
"A gripping rollercoaster ride of a thriller. Keeps you in there right to the last page."
The Better Liar (2020)
Tanen Jones
"A brilliantly claustrophobic thriller with a gasp-inducing sting in the tail. Tense, controlled and masterly."
