Jason Matthews recommends
Grist Mill Road (2018)
Christopher J Yates
"Christopher Yates' Grist Mill Road is a terrific thriller. A horrid childhood crime carried secretly to adulthood, with menace lurking around the corner, and guilt hanging heavy overhead. Alfred Hitchcock would have optioned the plot in the blink of his gimlet eye. A gripping read."
