Stav Sherez recommends
Launch Code (2019)
Michael Ridpath
"Hugely enjoyable and thought-provoking, Launch Code brings to mind the classic thrillers of Alister Maclean and Jack Higgins. A well-crafted ingenious mystery, tightly plotted, compelling and contemporary, this could well be Michael Ridpath's best novel yet."
Liberation Square (2019)
Gareth Rubin
"Liberation Square is a superb and intelligent piece of alternate history. By turns gripping, terrifying and trenchant, it is a remarkably assured debut making Rubin's name one to watch out for in the crowded crime landscape."
Gringa (2018)
(Sao Paulo Quartet, book 2)
Joe Thomas
"Fresh, gripping and incredibly assured. Joe Thomas will be a name to watch in crime fiction."
