Gytha Lodge recommends
Alice Teale is Missing (2019)
H A Linskey (Howard Linskey)
"A brilliantly plotted, perfectly clued story of the dark power of terrible truths. Compulsive reading from page one."
Keep Him Close (2020)
Emily Koch
"Keep Him Close was a magnetic, all-consuming read. A heart-breaking suspense which deals with love in all its forms, however it is expressed."
The Dead Line (2020)
(Casey Benedict, book 2)
Holly Watt
"A rip-roarer of a thriller that sucked me in and wouldn’t let go until the finish. Like To the Lions, The Dead Line confronts some of the worst of human nature head on, but also finds hope in the complex heroes who stand against it. In Casey Benedict, we have a brilliant creation who is relentless in her pursuit of the truth. I find myself wishing there were more Caseys in the world."
The Safe Place (2020)
Anna Downes
"It's such a rare thing - a claustrophobic, addictive thriller that lets you actually feel for all of the characters involved."
End of Summer (2020)
(Seasons Quartet , book 1)
Anders De La Motte
"A fantastic read. Atmospheric, beautifully written, with strong characters and with a really compelling mystery that made it incredibly hard to put down when I really needed sleep! A real triumph."
The Metal Heart (2021)
Caroline Lea
"Atmospheric, heart-wrenching, evocative."
The Whistling (2021)
Rebecca Netley
"A terrific, all-absorbing read. A wonderfully eerie haunted house set-up is given new life by brilliant, atmospheric writing, and by those rare things in any ghost story: real heart and feeling. I loved it!"
What His Wife Knew (2022)
Jo Jakeman
"A totally engaging, brilliantly characterised read that had me hanging on every twist and turn. An absolute 5* cracker of a book."
Deadly Cure (2022)
Mahi Cheshire
"A taut, sizzling thriller with, at its heart, a friendship gone badly wrong. Addictive and brilliant."
Truly, Darkly, Deeply (2022)
Victoria Selman
"An all-consuming, beautifully drawn thriller about love and the terrible things it can drive us to do. Absolutely compulsive reading."
Stay Buried (2022)
(DI Lockyer, book 1)
Kate Webb
"I LOVED the book! It was such a brilliantly engaging, emotionally compelling read. I loved the complex relationship between Hedy Lambert and DI Lockyer, and the twists were terrific."
Silent Waters (2023)
L V Matthews
"I was immediately obsessed with this brilliant, murky but warm story of deep-buried secrets and impossible choices. Gorgeously real characters and relationships and a compelling mystery with heartbreakingly high stakes. Loved it!"
