Chris Merritt recommends
Long Time Dead (2024)
(Detective Sheridan Holler, book 1)
T M Payne
"A twisty, compelling, page-turning cracker of a debut. Full of great characters, T.M. Payne's Long Time Dead is so absorbing you'll miss your bus stop AND stay up past your bedtime. Perfect for fans of Val McDermid and Michael Connelly."
Let Me In (2023)
Claire McGowan
"An outstanding psychological thriller, as clever as it is creepy."
The Running Girls (2023)
Matt Brolly
"The Running Girls is a tightly written, twisty thriller whose intrigue builds like a swirling storm to a climax as powerful as a hurricane... Brings to mind shows like True Detective and Mare of Easttown. This is a book you will want to keep reading."
