Ali Land recommends
Fierce Kingdom (2017)
"A terrifying premise executed with tension and tenderness, and a testament to how far we'll go to save our loved ones."
The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle (2018)
"I hereby declare Stuart Turton the Mad Hatter of crime. Seven Deaths is unique, energising and clever. So original, a brilliant read . I tore through it."
Our Kind of Cruelty (2018)
"Toxic love, obsession, and the unflinching unravelling of a mind. Scarily plausible, a great read."
The Story Keeper (2018)
"The Story Keeper is brilliant. The imagery, the folklore, the sense of place, all of it combined is so intoxicating, creepy and compulsive. I loved it!"
The Glass Woman (2019)
"Utterly unputdownable. Rich in superstition and mystery, it pulled me in. An incredible novel."
Daisy Jones & The Six (2019)
Taylor Jenkins Reid
"The heady haze of the 70s music scene, and a perfectly flawed Daisy, combine to create a fresh, rock n roll read. I loved it."
The Silver Road (2019)
"I really enjoyed The Silver Road. There's a haunting, intoxicating atmosphere throughout, intensified by the never ending Nordic daylight, which is in stark contrast to the darkness of the families the story follows. A great read."
The Whisper Man (2019)
"The Whisper Man is going to be huge. Dark enough to chill your blood but so beautifully written you will not be able to put it down. Utterly brilliant."
We Begin at the End (2020)
"An exceptionally beautiful and accomplished crime novel. I fell head over heels into its big black heart and will carry the characters with me for a long time to come yet. Duchess and Thomas Noble forever."
He Started It (2020)
"I absolutely loved it: whip-smart, lean, deliciously dark and addictive. One of the best thrillers I've read in a long time."
The Last Wife (2020)
"A brilliant example of how to master voice, and a protagonist, Juliette, who is terrifying!"
The Eighth Detective (2020)
"An absolute triumph of a novel. I read it in two greedy gulps. Intelligent and compelling storytelling. Utterly brilliant."
The Truth Must Dazzle Gradually (2020)
"An extremely moving read. Handles the complexities of love, grief, family life and mental illness with sensitivity and depth. A truly gorgeous novel."
Truly, Darkly, Deeply (2022)
"Utterly compelling. Twisted yet heartfelt. It's the stark portrayal of the complexities of familial love, and the slow burn of psychological authenticity that makes Truly Darkly Deeply such a thrilling read."
