After She’d Gone by Alex Dahl (Head of Zeus) – An unsettling, dark thriller that immerses the reader in the sinister side of the fashion world.

The Twist of a Knife (Hawthorne & Horowitz #4) by Anthony Horowitz (Century) – Another instalment in this highly entertaining murder mystery series, full of wit and invention.

The House at Helygen  by Victoria Hawthorne (Quercus) – A dual time historical suspense novel set in Cornwall with vibes of Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca or Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre.
