Marion Lane and the Midnight Murder (2020)
(Marion Lane, book 1)
T A Willberg
"The most fun I've had with a book this year. Every page is a delight, the worldbuilding is wonderful, and the mystery got its hooks into me from the first chapter."

The Mystery of Mrs. Christie (2020)
Marie Benedict
"What a read! Agatha Christie is so beautifully drawn, you could easily believe Benedict knew her intimately. Each page uncovers fresh layers of pain, rage, genius and suffering, culminating with a firecracker of an ending. I loved it."

The Dying Squad (2021)
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."
