Charlotte Philby recommends
Greenwich Park (2021)
Katherine Faulkner
"Meticulously crafted and deeply satisfying, Greenwich Park has all the hallmarks of a first-class psychological thriller. I read it in two sittings and was left smiling sardonically at the final line."
Watch Her Fall (2021)
Erin Kelly
"I read it in two sittings and found myself enraptured, transported, spun around and left dizzy by the final page."
The Wedding Night (2021)
Harriet Walker
"An intricate and surprising story of friendship, revenge, and redemption where no one and nothing are quite as they seem. The Wedding Night places female friendships at the center of both the story and the lives of its characters, who are so real you feel you know them. Walker’s writing is beautiful and immersive, and bristles with wry observation."
