Phil Rickman recommends
thumb
Not One of Us (2021)
(Teifi Valley Coroner, book 4)
Alis Hawkins
"The most interesting historical crime creation of the year."
thumb
The Coffin Path (2018)
Katherine Clements
"Seriously impressive... A good ghost story needs an absolutely authentic framework and a clear place in history, which is what we get here. The supernatural seeps into Scarcross Hall like rising damp, but the real horror is in the everyday cruelty of country life and its lingering barbarism. Even as your heart bleeds for the admirable Mercy Booth, you sense things are only going to get worse..."
thumb
Heart Swarm (2015)
(DI Will Harlan, book 1)
Allan Watson
"A slice of Glasgow Gothic that sizzles like a microwaved Mars bar..."
