The Unquiet Dead (2015)
(Rachel Getty and Esa Khattak, book 1)
Ausma Zehanat Khan
"A tale of rich complexity... intricately woven, delicately revealed."

Dodgers (2016)
Bill Beverly
"Akin to William Gibson in its staccato blizzard of sentences, each as taut and tight as a drumhead, and reminiscent of James Ellroy in its sense of social injustice and of a life and upbringing etched caustically across the pages. A compelling debut."

The Moment Before Drowning (2018)
James Brydon
"From the Battle of Algiers, to the austere abutments of the Brittany coast, The Moment Before Drowning is a carefully weighted novel that strips the glamour from what people can do without ever simplifying the reasons why they do it. An engrossing and expansive tale."
