Gilly MacMillan recommends
A Lesson in Cruelty (2024)
Harriet Tyce
"Compulsive, dark and smart, A Lesson in Cruelty delivers on every level. Justice, revenge and punishment are meted out and questioned throughout this twisty, terrifying thriller with a heart."
Nightwatching (2024)
Tracy Sierra
"Tracy Sierra is an impressive new talent. Nightwatching is riveting, by turns a chilling account of a horrifying ordeal and a whip-smart snapshot of marriage, motherhood, and the female experience in a man's world. Psychological terror at its finest."
The Babysitter (2023)
Emma Curtis
"The Babysitter is every mother's nightmare. Emma Curtis skilfully builds layer upon layer of chilling suspense in this story of misplaced trust and damaging suspicion. A compulsive read that'll get under your skin and keep you guessing."
