Trevor Wood recommends
A Ruined Girl (2020)
"A mesmerising tale of justice and redemption which will have you spellbound. Simants displays a poetic eye for detail which will quickly establish her as one of the rising stars of crime fiction."
(Philip Taiwo, book 1)
"An absolutely cracking debut, fresh, unique and beautifully written, a sure-fire candidate for next year's big prizes. In a time when travel is nigh-on impossible it's wonderful to be transported to another world in such a vivid and memorable fashion."
Safe and Sound (2021)
"A terrific book. Philippa East has somehow maintained a real sense of foreboding throughout but at the same time there’s a genuine poignancy in the fears that beset almost all the characters."
Anthrax Island (2021)
(John Tyler , book 1)
D L Marshall
"A genre-busting debut. It’s like the bastard son of Agatha Christie and Ian Fleming watched The Thing on repeat before bashing out a pacy, locked-room, action-adventure thriller."
Don't Let Him In (2021)
"A triumph - Linskey is a consistently excellent and versatile writer, and Don't Let Him In is yet another in a long line of his top class thrillers with a fantastic North East setting and a terrific plot."
Phosphate Rocks (2021)
"Phosphate Rocks rocks! I'm not sure how Fiona Erskine pulled this one off but it's kind of mesmerising, and I speak as a science-moron. The weaved of stories and science really pulls the whole thing together. Bravo!"
Black Drop (2021)
(Laurence Jago, book 1)
"A sparkling evocation of a distant time which is remarkably similar to the current one. I loved it. The sights, smells and eccentricities of eighteenth-century Britain are so perfectly captured that if you'd told me this was one of Dickens' lost novels I'd have completely believed it. Other fictional worlds are going to seem a lot greyer in comparison."
Vine Street (2021)
"An epic, brutal, blockbuster of a crime novel. It's the best film noir you've never seen complete with a love story that might just rip your heart out."
It Ends At Midnight (2022)
"It's a spectacular display that you won't want to miss. It Ends At Midnight will have you reading into the small hours."
Miss Aldridge Regrets (2022)
(Canary Club Mystery, book 1)
"A sublimely told murder mystery which oozes class in every sense. Fully deserves the Christie comparisons."
No Country for Girls (2022)
"Fresh as hell with two strikingly original protagonists who blaze a thrilling trail through the outback. Not just a terrific debut, a terrific book full stop."
