Brixton Hill (2020)
Lottie Moggach
"I was soon pulled right into the novel's tight, twisting plot that never relaxes its hold. The prison scenes are extraordinarily well drawn, as are the characters, and in particular the main protagonist's fear of been pulled into a situation which could jeopardize his desperately-sought release. A first-rate and very original novel."

The Intrigues of Jennie Lee (2020)
Alex Rosenberg
"The Intrigues of Jennie Lee is marvellous in so many ways...An excellent take on the twisted dangerous politics of 1930s Britain and a rattling good read."

Death in the East (2019)
(Sam Wyndham, book 4)
Abir Mukherjee
