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!"
The Resident (2020)
David Jackson
"Utterly compelling and impossible to put down. A terrifying glimpse into a fractured mind. Incredible."
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."
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!"
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!"
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."
