Andrew Taylor recommends
thumb
The Book of Secrets (2024)
Anna Mazzola
"Compelling and brilliantly atmospheric. A powerful story of women fighting to gain control of their lives by any means they can."
thumb
Knife Skills For Beginners (2024)
Orlando Murrin
"A lethally delicious souffle of a crime novel - light and witty at first taste, but with rich, dark undertones. I loved the combination of crime and cookery - and how Orlando uses the one to enrich the other (and vice versa). I can see this developing into a wonderful series with memorable recurring characters."
thumb
The Next to Die (2023)
(Dylan Kasper, book 1)
Elliot Sweeney
"The Next to Die is a remarkably assured debut. It oozes the sour tang of authenticity, mingling psychiatry and crime with the mean streets of London. Kasper has the hallmark of the classic crime fiction protagonist, brutal but with an underlying compassion."
