How to Disappear by Gillian McAllister
Our first review of the new year and it earns 5 Stars! This is a brilliantly compelling story that’s almost unbearably tense. If you like psychological thrillers you have to read this.

Two storylines, set 25 years apart. And connected by what? This is a wonderfully twisty plot and a compelling read. A book we recommend.

The Runner by Stephen Leather
A cracking thriller which features an entirely believable protagonist in junior MI5 agent, Sally Page. It may not be literature but who cares? It’s a real page-turner. 5-Stars.

Life after Life by Kate Atkinson
Our reviewer first read this book when it was published in 2013. Recently she decided to read it again and says that was the “best decision of the month!” Even second-time round it earned 5-Stars.
