Kate Simants recommends
Five Nights (2024)
Rachel Wolf
"A perfect holiday read but with teeth! Incisive, thrilling and crammed full of deliciously toxic family nastiness."
The Art of Belonging (2024)
Eleanor Ray
"A delicious indulgence of a novel - rich, warm, and packed to bursting with heart, hope and compassion."
The Safe House (2023)
Cameron Ward
"What a ride! This is a writer at the absolute top of his game. Cunning, claustrophobic and irrepressible, this white-hot outback thriller builds with blistering pace and doesn't let up. As intense as a bushfire and every bit as devastating. Every copy should come with oven gloves."
