E S Thomson recommends
None So Blind (2017)
(Teifi Valley Coroner, book 1)
Alis Hawkins
"Beautifully written, cunningly plotted, with one of the most interesting central characters."
The Corset (2018)
Laura Purcell
"With the skill of a born story teller Laura Purcell has crafted a tale as intricate and flawless as Ruth's stitches. By turns horrifying and humorous, The Corset is a darkly compelling, unsettling and fascinating book, where pseudo-science meets needlework in the most chilling and unexpected ways ... The Corset is the very best kind of gothic fiction. Reminiscent of Sarah Waters and Margaret Atwood, but uniquely and unmistakably Laura Purcell."
The Antiquities Hunter (2018)
(Gina Miyoko Mystery, book 1)
Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff
"Witty, feisty, sassy--a character to give Philip Marlowe a run for his money any day of the week--Gina 'Tink' Miyoko is my new favorite heroine. With whip-smart crackling dialogue and a plot that could turn on a sixpence, this is a fine and exciting debut and a thrilling piece of modern crime writing. Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff, I salute you."
