Jason Matthews recommends
thumb
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."

The Paris Diversion (2019)
(Expats, book 2)
Chris Pavone
"Chris Pavone is a master craftsman. A natural storyteller. Whether we’re being driven around Paris in a car trunk or walking through the Luxembourg Gardens, his descriptions leap off the page. The Paris Diversion is a terrific read."
