Stuart Turton recommends
Perilous Times (2023)
Thomas D Lee
"Funny, weird, wise, lovely, and full of mad sh*t. You've never read anything like it before, and you should bang that pre-order button now."
The Other Side of Night (2022)
Adam Hamdy
"A big-hearted, big-brain, novel that you'll finish in three days and think about for the rest of the year. Wonderful."
The New Neighbor (2022)
Carter Wilson
"Damn you. Wilson, I was up all night with this book. The mysteries of Bury are perfectly placed, the tension is thick enough to drown in, and the pages fly by. Brilliant escapism. I can't recommend it highly enough."
Marion Lane and the Deadly Rose (2022)
(Marion Lane, book 2)
T A Willberg
"A delight."
The Key in the Lock (2022)
Beth Underdown
"The Key in the Lock is the perfect gothic novel. It has secrets, guilt, brilliant characters, and a grand old house built on a terrible past. An absolute corker."
The Dying Squad (2021)
(Dying Squad, book 1)
Adam Simcox
"THE DYING SQUAD is one of those books that fizzes with life. Every page has a new idea, or a funny line, and Daisy May is just a brilliant character to spend time with. Also, the ending arrives in a steel-tipped boot. Well played Adam."
