Kate Mosse has released a third instalment in her Joubert Family Chronicles, while Tess Gunty has released a highly-original debut.

The Rabbit Hutch
Tess Gunty

In this original debut, the cast of well-drawn characters all live in the same run-down apartment block in the Mid-West. Separated by thin walls, these lives unfold separately – until an act of violence changes everything. 

After Sappho
Selby Wynn Schwartz

In a series of poetic and funny vignettes, Selby Wynn Schwartz reimagines the lives of various 19th and 20th century feminists, from Virginia Woolf and Sarah Bernhard to Josephine Baker, as well as others whose names are not so familiar. 

Talking at Night
Claire Daverley

Will and Rosie meet as teenagers, and although they seem like opposites, they also seem destined to be each other’s great love story – until tragedy strikes and their future together is shattered. They really can’t let each other go, even though they should. 

The Ghost Ship
Kate Mosse

The third instalment in Kate Mosse’s Joubert Family Chronicles follows a brave band of mariners committed to rescuing those who have been enslaved by pirates. But what if the bravest among them are not what they seem? A buccaneering and romantic read. 

Everyone Here Is Lying
Shari Lapena

Stanhope is seemingly a safe neighbourhood, but when a nine-year-old girl vanishes its residents’ secrets bubble to the surface. Avery’s father was having an affair, but he’s not the only one on the street who’s hiding a lie… 

Colin Walsh

After being estranged for 15 years, three old friends are reunited in their hometown on Ireland’s west coast and must reckon with the terrifying events of the summer of 2003, and the way in which it changed their lives forever.
