Ian Rankin recommends
thumb
The Last Passenger (2023)
The Last One

Will Dean
"Astonishing."
thumb
Central Park West (2023)
James Comey
"Hard to believe Central Park West is a first novel. It reeks of authenticity and the plot goes like a train. The courtroom scenes are tense and the cast of characters vivid and compelling. This is the sort of debut publishers dream of."
thumb
Broken Light (2023)
Joanne Harris
"Chilling, enchanting, and thought-provoking."
