Joseph Knox recommends
thumb
The Dry (2016)
(Aaron Falk, book 1)
Jane Harper
"One of the best crime debuts of 2017 - literary Broadchurch meets Top of the Lake."
thumb
Only to Sleep (2018)
(Philip Marlowe)
Lawrence Osborne
"It's a joy to see Philip Marlowe lured back for one last job by the gleefully unsentimental Lawrence Osborne... If you like noir, pour yourself something cool and enjoy one final dark night of the soul."
thumb
The Key in the Lock (2022)
Beth Underdown
"A smouldering gothic mystery that slowly envelopes you, The Key in the Lock is a novel of repressed desire and well-tended grief - getting to the very heart of the grudges we hold against ourselves."
thumb
The Second Cut (2022)
(Rilke, book 2)
Louise Welsh
"One of the most enjoyable mysteries I've read this year, The Second Cut had me from the word go. Rilke's world feels rife with possibilities for dark doings - and Welsh's writing is fresh, funny, fearless and fun."
thumb
Oxblood (2022)
Tom Benn
"If I read a better novel than Oxblood in 2022, it'll be a blinding year for fiction. Tom Benn, please take a bow. Everybody else, please take note."
