S G MacLean recommends
The Burnings (2023)
Naomi Kelsey
"The Burnings is a beautifully written re-imagining of the North Berwick witch trials with clever and tantalising glimpses into the cross-over between witchcraft and lived experience in 16th-century Scotland."
Music in the Dark (2023)
Sally Magnusson
"Music in the Dark is a beautifully-written piece of work, achieved with immense skill. The portrayal of Jamesina Ross as she is shattered and put back together by the light-touch constancy of Niall Munro is perfectly balanced. The minute focus on these two individuals tells a huge story of the C19th Highlands, Glasgow and North America that readers will find deeply affecting."
The Plague Letters (2021)
V L Valentine
"A riotous delve into the dark medical world of Restoration London. In her heroine Penelope and the hapless Symon, V.L.Valentine has given us an appealing and truly unique pairing."
The Crown Agent (2019)
(Crown Agent, book 1)
Stephen O'Rourke
"Fast-paced and not a word wasted, this is a classic adventure that calls to mind Stevenson and Buchan."
The Serpent's Mark (2019)
(Nicholas Shelby, book 2)
S W Perry
"The writing is of such a quality, the characters so engaging and the setting so persuasive that, only two books in, S.W. Perry's ingeniously plotted novels have become my favourite historical crime series."
Blood's Game (2017)
(Holcroft Blood, book 1)
Angus Donald
"Angus Donald is a proper story-teller and Blood's Game is a full-throated adventure following a flesh and blood cast of engaging characters as they cross and double-cross each other around a convincingly-depicted Restoration London."
