Shari Lapeña recommends
Someone in the Attic (2024)
Andrea Mara
"Someone is getting inside your house. . . It's a chilling premise, and Andrea Mara executes it brilliantly. This one is an absolute page turner!"
The Chamber (2024)
Will Dean
"A highly original thriller set in the claustrophobic, high-risk world of saturation diving. The tension is almost unbearable. A masterclass in suspense - I absolutely loved it!"
A Man Downstairs (2024)
Nicole Lundrigan
"A gripping story of troubled relationships, mental illness and buried secrets with a murder at its heart--who really killed young mother Edie Wynters in the small town of Aymes almost forty years ago? Her now grown daughter is about to find out. . . . A Man Downstairs is a clever, twisty and chilling read."
