Hayley Scrivenor recommends
Tipping Point (2024)
(Detective Kate Miles, book 3)
Dinuka McKenzie
"How lucky are we to have Dinuka McKenzie?."
To The River (2024)
Vikki Wakefield
"Vikki Wakefield's To the River gets under your skin. Two very different women are brought together in the search for the truth and something like justice. Covered in dog hair and splattered with river mud, this taut, muscular thriller absolutely delivers."
The Search Party (2024)
Hannah Richell
"The Search Party pitches you forward from the first page, sending you rushing headlong towards its thrilling conclusion. I loved this novel for its multifaceted, multi-voiced take on a single weekend, and a satisfying and emotionally honest portrayal of what we see in others, and ourselves. Hannah Richell's first foray into the thriller genre is simply not to be missed!"
