Luca Veste recommends
Because She Loves Me (2014)
Mark Edwards
"Yet another superb psychological thriller from Mark Edwards. Because She Loves Me perfectly shows off his extraordinary talent for characterisation, gripping plot, and the ability to make you read just one more chapter before reluctantly putting it down."
The Deaths of December (2017)
Susi Holliday
"Combining excellent characterisation with an utterly gripping plot, Susi Holliday has provided a Christmas gift that will chill you to your bones."
After He Died (2018)
Michael J Malone
"Malone is a massive talent...get on board now so you can brag you were reading his books the rest of the world."
Good Samaritans (2018)
(Detective Sergeant Pace, book 1)
Will Carver
"Possibly the most interesting and original writer in the crime-fiction genre, and I've loved his books for years. Good Samaritans is his best to date – dark, slick, gripping, and impossible to put down. You'll be sucked in from the first page."
The Last (2019)
Hanna Jameson
"The Last is impossible to put down. Nuclear apocalypse meets murder mystery, with an amazing cast of characters. It's Stephen King meets Agatha Christie, in this fantastic and highly original novel that I'll be recommending to readers for a long time to come. I loved every second of it! This is *the* book of 2019."
The First Lie (2019)
A J Park
"A great thriller that will keep you turning the pages late into the night. A story that will continuously make you question what you would do in the same position. Great read!"
Safe House (2019)
Jo Jakeman
"I was absolutely gripped by this tale of secrets, lies, and the impossibility of running away from your past...Fantastic!"
Alice Teale is Missing (2019)
H A Linskey (Howard Linskey)
"He just keeps getting better and better. I was gripped by this one. Hooks you in and doesn't let go. Strength in characterisation as always - I was sad to let this one go."
The Resident (2020)
David Jackson
"Utterly compelling and impossible to put down. A terrifying glimpse into a fractured mind. Incredible."
What Waits for You (2021)
(Tully Jarsdel, book 2)
Joseph Schneider
"Schneider's riveting prose, incredibly original protagonist Tully Jarsdel, and brilliant evocation of a L.A. add up to a novel you won't be able to put down. A read that will get under your skin and stay there for a while. I can't wait for the next book!"
