Kate Mascarenhas recommends
Needless Alley (2023)
(William Garrett, book 1)
Natalie Marlow
"Marlow beautifully distils 1930s Birmingham into a seamy world of moral corruption: anyone can fall and few are left clean. Gripping, confident and atmospheric."
The Colours of Death (2021)
(Inspector Isabel Reis, book 1)
Patricia Marques
"Stigma and paranoia loom large in Marques's beautifully realised alternate Lisbon. Isabel's predicament is an intriguing, and paradoxical one - it's isolating to hear the thoughts of everyone around you. A vivid, fast-moving mystery."
Meet Me in Another Life (2021)
Catriona Silvey
"A sweet, melancholy heartache of a novel."
Cunning Women (2021)
Elizabeth Lee
"An impressive debut . . . anyone who roots for the underdog will fall for Sarah . . . beautifully relevant."
