Kevin Wignall recommends
Ten Dead Comedians (2017)
Fred Van Lente
"Fred van Lente takes an old idea and drags it kicking and screaming into the 21st Century. So assured, so fresh and so inventive, it's hard to believe this is his first novel."
The Man Who Died (2017)
Antti Tuomainen
"Hugely entertaining and satisfying ... like Carl Hiaasen transported to Finland, it's full of black comedy and an unlikely hero in Jaakko who you'll root for to the very end."
The Old Religion (2018)
(Tom Killgannon, book 1)
Martyn Waites
"This is a great read - dark and disturbing, like The Wicker Man reinvented for our own troubled times. This is the side of Cornwall you'd rather not see - full of sinister undercurrents - but the result is a novel that's gripping from the first page to its incredibly satisfying climax."
Good Samaritans (2018)
(Detective Sergeant Pace, book 1)
Will Carver
"Beautiful, gripping and disturbing in equal measure, a postcard from the razor’s edge of the connected world we live in."
Blood for Blood (2019)
(Ziba Mackenzie, book 1)
Victoria Selman
"Blood for Blood sets in motion a complex and thrilling plot, and with Ziba MacKenzie it introduces a fascinating protagonist who’s sure to develop a legion of fans."
What You Did (2019)
Claire McGowan
"What You Did is a triumph, a gripping story of the secrets and lies that can underpin even the closest friendships. Put some time aside—this is one you’ll want to read in a single sitting."
Beast (2019)
(Six Stories, book 4)
Matt Wesolowski
"A gripping and incredibly powerful novel of our times – the Six Stories series just keeps getting better and better."
End of Summer (2020)
(Seasons Quartet , book 1)
Anders De La Motte
"End of Summer is captivating from beginning to end, an evocative story of family secrets set in the broad open landscapes of southern Sweden - prepare to fall in love with Scandinavian fiction all over again."
The Cover Wife (2021)
Dan Fesperman
"Both gripping and scarily plausible, from the first page to its chilling conclusion, The Cover Wife is a book that demands to be read."
