Martyn Waites recommends
Speak of the Devil (2023)
Rose Wilding
"Speak of the Devil is a hugely assured debut novel; dark, compelling with a channelled, righteous anger. A fantastic thriller, and Rose Wilding is a genuine find who writes with an authentic, original Northern, working class queer voice. I'm really excited to see what she does next."
The Christmas Murder Game (2021)
Alexandra Benedict
"This is the perfect Christmas book. Get it for yourself to read when the nights are cold and dark and give it as a present. To everyone!"
The Rule (2021)
David Jackson
"Jackson is one of the finest British thriller writers... a thrilling, propulsive and ultimately heart-breaking tale of the lengths a father will go to in order to protect his family."
