Steve Mosby is one of the finest writers in the UK . . . Mosby takes the serial killer genre and provides something new and exciting . . . This is a book - and author - I will endlessly recommend — Luca Veste
Steve Mosby is one of the most consistently and innovatively creepy writers working right now. With You Can Run he takes the serial killer thriller to a higher level, creating a subtly off-kilter world suffused with low key menace, where moments of intense disquiet and stinging emotion disturb as much as the terrifying evil at its core' — Eva Dolan

Lonely and unhappy, she is cut off from her only son, Reuben, who she lost custody of when he was just a boy. Whilst she maintains the pretence of closeness, Gilda fears he'll never forgive her for abandoning him. The more she tries to close the gap between them, the farther away he pushes her.When Reuben marries a small, blonde Gentile, Gilda takes it as the ultimate rejection. She watches the two of them together, so obviously in love, and her son so removed from the stiff individual she has to content herself with. Transformed. What does this young, seemingly innocuous woman have that she doesn't? A son is meant to love his mother above everyone else.And so Gilda's obsession begins. She follows Alice to work, copies her new hairstyle, breaks into the newlyweds' home and starts to gently meddle in their lives. As she watches the young couple stumble through their new life together, Gilda is forced to properly reflect on how she ended up so alone.

There was too much Easy wasn't being told, but he couldn't resist the prospect of seeing Betty again, even if it killed him . . .

Michael ConnellyTHE TIMES CRIME BOOK OF THE MONTH: 'Full of humour, originality and high-quality writing'NOMINATED FOR THE 2017 EDGAR AWARD, ANTHONY AWARD, MACAVITY AWARD, STRAND CRITICS and SHAMUS AWARD for BEST FIRST NOVELEast Long Beach. The LAPD is barely keeping up with the high crime rate. Murders go unsolved, the elderly are being mugged, children go missing. But word has spread: if you've got a case the police can't - or won't - touch, Isaiah Quintabe will help you out.They call him IQ. He's a loner and a high school dropout, his unassuming nature disguising a relentless determination and a fierce intelligence. His clients pay him whatever they can afford, a new set of tyres or some homemade muffins. But now he needs a client who can pay. And the only way to that client is through a jive-talking, low-life drug dealer he thought he'd left behind. Then there's the case itself. A drug-addled rap star surrounded by a crew of flunkies who believes his life is in danger; and a hit man who even other hit men say is a lunatic. If he solves this case, IQ can put right a mistake he made long ago. If not it won't just be the hit man coming after him ...

David Gemmell

David Gemmell was the UK's number one fantasy and historical novelist until his death in 2006. A regular Sunday Times bestseller, and international sensation, his legacy lives on through his novels, his influence on the genre, and through the David Gemmell Legend awards.Rhyming Rings is a never-before-seen Gemmell novel, discovered in his papers by his widow, Stella Gemmell. Merging autobiographical details of Gemmell's life as a journalist in South London with a serial killer and a tinge of the supernatural, this is perfect for fans of David's work, as well as readers of gritty crime novels. Set against the backdrop of a London simmering with poverty, change and racial tension, this taut thriller is a fitting legacy for the great writer.This book includes a brand new introduction from massive Gemmell fan Conn Iggulden, and an afterword by Gemmell's friend Stan Nicholls.An ambidextrous killer is murdering women, leaving virtually no evidence behind, and struggling journalist Jeremy Miller wishes he was covering the case. Instead, he's stuck with heart-warming local stories about paraplegic teenagers and elderly psychic ladies. So when his stories and the murder case start to converge no one is more surprised than Jeremy.Or, it turns out, more at risk.
