LJ Ross recommends
The Sixth Window (2017)
(DI Tom Douglas, book 6)
Rachel Abbott
"Abbott continues to be an outstanding force in the world of thriller writing and The Sixth Window is no exception. Pacy, suspenseful and cleverly constructed, it is a gripping page-turner of a read, filled with astute observations on human nature. I loved it!"
For Your Own Protection (2017)
Paul Pilkington
"Pilkington is on top form with this fast-paced thriller which expertly unmasks the darker side of London. From gangland estates to the City’s financial underbelly, he has delivered a master class in suspense."
Curse the Day (2020)
(Michael North, book 2)
Jude O'Reilly
"A slick, fast-paced thriller from a master storyteller ... Do yourself a favour and buy this book!"
The Last Bloody Straw (2020)
(DCI Logan Crime Thrillers, book 5)
JD Kirk
"A breath of fresh air in crime fiction."
