Alex North recommends
Beast (2019)
(Six Stories, book 4)
Matt Wesolowski
"Beautufully written, smart, compassionate – and scary as hell. Matt Wesolowski is one of the most exciting and original voices in crime fiction."
Fifty-Fifty (2020)
(Eddie Flynn, book 5)
Steve Cavanagh
"Unpredictable, daring and completely compelling. Top notch writing. If you thought Thirteen was good - and it really was - this is somehow even better."
A Knock at the Door (2020)
T W Ellis
"A Knock at the Door is a gripping, twisty thriller that intrigues from the very beginning. T. W. Ellis is the real deal."
The Resident (2020)
David Jackson
"Disturbing, blackly funny and completely compulsive, David Jackson wrings every bit of possible tension from his deliciously chilling premise."
The Eighth Detective (2020)
Alex Pavesi
"It's rare for me to read a book in a single day, but I couldn't put The Eighth Detective down. Compelling, clever, and beautifully-constructed. It deserves to be huge. I genuinely wanted to applaud at the end."
The Appeal (2021)
Janice Hallett
"The Appeal grips from the start, expertly stage-managing emails and messages to create an intriguing mystery with a cast of vivid, memorable characters. Original, clever, devious - and never less than utterly compelling - this is a case you're about to become obsessed with. A real triumph."
The Last House on Needless Street (2021)
Catriona Ward
"A masterpiece. Beautiful, heartbreaking and quietly uplifting. One of the most powerful and well-executed novels I've read in years."
