C L Taylor recommends
The Wrong Sister (2024)
Claire Douglas
"A triumph of masterful misdirection and intricate plotting. It keeps you guessing from the first page to the last and it's Claire Douglas's best book yet. If you love a Christie-esque mystery that keeps you guessing, The Wrong Sister definitely won't disappoint."
The Trap (2023)
Catherine Ryan Howard
"Dark, creepy and very clever, The Trap will lure you in and keep you captive until the very last page. Catherine Ryan Howard is the Queen of the Unguessable Twist."
The Hike (2022)
Susi Holliday
"A deliciously dark mystery about warring sisters, their duplicitous husbands, and a hike that ends in murder. With a cast of gloriously unlikeable characters, any one of them could be the murderer, and any of them could be dead. Chock full of secrets, lies, resentment and revenge, The Hike kept me guessing until the last page."
