Harriet Tyce recommends
The Hidden Wife (2019)
"Tremendous. Tight plotting and strong writing carries the narrative along to a chilling conclusion."
Lock Me In (2019)
"Intricately plotted, beautifully written with great pace, truly sympathetic characters, and a great twist at the end."
The Man on the Street (2019)
(Jimmy Mullen, book 1)
"The story races along at a cracking pace, lots of tension in the twists and turns, and Jimmy is hugely engaging and complex. It's a rare skill to develop a sympathetic character with such a chequered history for whom one so wants a happy ending. A deeply satisfying read."
Djinn Patrol on the Purple Line (2020)
"Extraordinarily good, deeply moving and thought provoking with brilliant characterization . . . A very important book."
The Temple House Vanishing (2020)
"Atmospheric, creepy, tense and utterly absorbing - a great literary thriller set in a Catholic girls' boarding school. Loved this."
The Eighth Girl (2020)
Maxine Mei Chung and Maxine Mei-Fung Chung
"Intricately plotted and sensitively written, The Eighth Girl draws the reader into the dark heart of London's underworld with relentless tension until the shock of the final reveal."
This Lovely City (2020)
"Superb, compelling storytelling, beautifully drawn characters and atmosphere that’s deeply immersive."
Cherry Slice (2020)
(Cherry PI Mystery, book 1)
"If you’re in need of comic distraction (as we all are ) this is extremely funny."
The House (2020)
Imogen Robertson and Tom Watson
"A rare view from the inside of the Machiavellian machinations for power . . . Fascinating."
The Searcher (2020)
"With a tension that mounts inexorably throughout, French creates a world whose characters stay with you long after the book is finished. I didn't want it to end."
The Push (2020)
"Huge fun with some very dark moments and brilliantly awful characters. Excellent, twisty plotting."
"Exhilarating. A brilliant combination of knife-sharp locked room mystery with a will they/won't storyline. So cleverly done - I felt like I was there."
