L V Matthews recommends
Black Drop (2021)
(Laurence Jago, book 1)
"A dark and intriguing historical thriller. So immersive and fantastically written!"
Find Her First (2022)
"I was utterly immersed."
Her Perfect Twin (2022)
"Sarah Bonner has created a perfect storm of sly revenge and rivalry, in her addictive and disturbing debut Her Perfect Twin."
The Interview (2022)
C M Ewan
"C. M. Ewan has created the most incredible cat and mouse game in his propulsive novel, The Interview. He is an absolute master of the knife-edge thriller."
Deep Water (2022)
"Suspenseful, evocative and beautifully written, I devoured it."
All I Said Was True (2022)
"Imran Mahmood's ALL I SAID WAS TRUE is beautifully complex and arresting. I was swept away in Layla's story, though not quite knowing who I should be trusting and when which - for me - is absolutely key in great storytelling. The way that Imran continues to challenge society, and all our many preconceptions within his books is so powerful."
Keep Them Close (2022)
"I absolutely raced through this book- beautifully suspenseful, pacy and smart. A real talent in the psych thriller genre."
Bad Fruit (2022)
"Bad Fruit is at once a beautiful and harrowing novel which explores family dynamics, and tracks a journey of self-discovery. I am blown away by Ella's talent for writing not only wonderful prose but complex and intriguing characters."
The Girls Are Good (2022)
"What a haunting novel. Cruel, barbed, disturbing, poignant - and it opened my eyes to an industry so graceful and effortless, and the intensity of a group of young people."
The Mysterious Case of the Alperton Angels (2023)
"A unique and completely immersive novel about manipulation, and seeking the truth at all costs. An absolute triumph in storytelling."
The Mother (2023)
T M Logan
"T.M. Logan is at the top of his game - The Mother is a propulsive novel of secrets, heartbreaking betrayal, and what lengths an individual goes to put 'family first'."
The Running Club (2023)
"I loved the elite lives, the big money and bigger secrets. Fast-paced and brilliantly taut."
Looking Glass Sound (2023)
"A marvel of storytelling, sinister as hell, and, at points where I thought I understood where it was going, Catriona drowned me with her signature 'oh no, you don't' dark turns."
