Peng Shepherd recommends
The Centre (2023)
Ayesha Manazir Siddiqi
"Ayesha Manazir Siddiqi has crafted a gripping, surreal mystery about language, identity, and greed. The Centre explores impossible success at an equally impossible price - and the difference between merely paying for something and truly understanding its dark cost."
Symphony of Secrets (2023)
Brendan Slocumb
"With Symphony of Secrets, Slocumb has woven an incredible thriller about music, genius, history, and greed - and how easily innocent passion can turn to dangerous, deadly obsession. You won't be able to put it down until the last note!"
Daphne (2022)
Josh Malerman
"This terrifying little book will get you just like Daphne does--first with curiosity, then fascination, and before you know it, you're sucked in deep, and it's too late. You'll be triple-checking the locks and sleeping with all the lights in the house on bright, too afraid to close your eyes."
