Beautiful Animals (2017)
Lawrence Osborne
"Two young women, one under the sway of the other, holiday with their families on a Greek island. When they come to the aid of a refugee who has washed up on a deserted shore, the consequences are unforeseen and (you guessed it) dire. As a thriller, a real page-turner, and as a social commentary an astutely glancing approach to Europe's migration crisis. Rivetingly well written."
