Summer Reading

What could be nicer than sitting in the sun with a good book. And when the sun shines bright, I like to plunge into something really dark. Summer is the ideal time for a good thriller or crime novel  and here are some of summer’s best to look out for.

A13 Claire Mackintosh: I let you go

Winner of the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year

A14 Louise Candlish: The Swimming Pool

Secrets and lies beneath the surface at a London Lido will keep you on the edge of your seat

A15 Elly Griffiths: The Woman in Blue

The murder of women priests in the shrine town of Walsingham sucks Dr Ruth Galloway into an unholy investigation.

A8 Antonia Hodgson: The Last Confession of Thomas Hawkins

Not many crime novels start with the hero on his way to the gallows. Back to 1728 and the backstreets of Georgian London for the sequel to  The Devil in the Marshalsea

A9 Peter May: Coffin Road

Coffin Road follows three perilous journeys towards one shocking truth – and the realisation that ignorance can kill us

A12 Lucie Whitehouse: Keep you close

They said it was a tragic accident. She knows better…Is this the new Girl on the Train?

Have you tried any of these books? Perhaps you prefer something sunny and light this summer. Let us know about your summer reading choices.
