Martin Seay recommends
The Ruins (2020)
Mat Osman
"The Ruins reads like Raymond Chandler remixed by James Lasdun: barbed aperçus and killer images flare across each page, even as unsettling elements moil below, in pursuit of more sinister ambitions. Every great noir tale is at some level a fantasia on the slipperiness of identity; Osman has written a great noir tale."
