Emma Stonex recommends
Shy Creatures (2024)
Clare Chambers
"Shy Creatures is a magnificent novel, elegantly written, beautifully devised and radiant with treasures to surprise and delight. It is both a compelling mystery about a lonely man with a hidden past and a deeply involving study of human frailty, divided loyalties, and what it means to help someone. Clare Chambers is a writer of formidable skill and this is her best work yet, penned with such intelligence, tenderness and emotional acuity, it took my breath away. I loved it to its bones."
The Betrayal of Thomas True (2024)
A J West
"A thrilling historical mystery, brilliantly researched and lavishly written."
The Kellerby Code (2024)
Jonny Sweet
"Tom Ripley meets The Wych Elm in this creepy, acerbic, darkly funny thriller about loneliness, ambition and the lengths we go to to escape ourselves. Sweet is as interested in themes of love and revenge as he is in skewering the elite, in a novel whose dialogue is pin-sharp and whose pages ripple with tension. A hugely enjoyable and impressive debut."
