The Strange Fate of Kitty Easton (2011)
(Laurence Bartram, book 2)
Elizabeth Speller
"Speller's writing is gorgeous."
thumb
The House at Midnight (2008)
Lucie Whitehouse
"A fine piece of high gothic, as dark and delicious as bitter chocolate, and also a moving lament for the loss of youth. Whitehouse is an English middle-class Donna Tartt, skillfully building layers of menace. I was spellbound."

The Lost Dog (2007)
Michelle de Kretser
"A beautiful piece of writing - place your bets now for the Booker."
