Firewatching: The must-read Thriller of the Month

Russ Thomas

£8.99 £8.36

An impeccably gripping new British gay crime thriller that kept us guessing right up to the incendiary climax. When a body is found bricked up into the walls of an old house it is clear from the state of the dead man's hands that he was buried alive. Cold case investigator DS Adam Tyler angles to get assigned to the case unaware he has already compromised the complex investigation. Couldn't put it down.

Clinch

Martin Holmen

£8.99 £8.36

The Stockholm Trilogy Book 1. The central hero is hard-drinking, hard-punching bisexual ex-boxer floundering in the 1930s Stockholm criminal underworld. Gritty, stylish, absorbing genius. 'Sin City meets Raymond Chandler in this atmospheric and compulsive series.' - Attitude

The Long Call

Ann Cleeves

£8.99 £8.36

'As a huge fan of both the Shetland and Vera series of books, I had high expectations for Cleeves’ latest. She easily exceeded those expectations with The Long Call. Matthew Venn is a keeper. A stunning debut for Cleeves’ latest crimefighter.' - David Baldacci

Beneath the Streets

Adam Macqueen

£8.99 £8.36

We sell tons of this fantastic book with an intriguing premise. When Jeremy Thorpe hired thugs to kill his ex-lover, they botched it. What if they had succeeded? 'A fucking fantastic read. A gripping what-if thriller, packed with vivid period detail and page-turning twists.' - Tom Robinson

Call Him Mine: A Telegraph Thriller of the Year

Tim MacGabhann

£8.99 £8.36

'Audacious and affecting. From the first page the reader is immersed in a modern-day Mexico beset by drug cartels and corrupt police forces... Most books succeed or fail based on the sensibilities of their protagonists and the truth of their voices and Call Him Mine succeeds... In his writing MacGabhann has conjured up a vivid sense of place... the language of the prose is rich and radiant... The pacing of the book is breathtakingly fast, but the chapters are so well composed that we never lose sight of the flow or the narrative clarity...' - Irish Examiner

An Honest Man

Ben Fergusson

£8.99 £8.36

Another beautifully and compellingly written Gay's the Word in-store best-seller here. 'A compelling story of love and betrayal in the divided Berlin of the 1980s.' - Sunday Times Best Books of 2019
