This summer we have three extraordinary debuts. First, James Clarke’s dark historical exploration of the miner’s strike, The Litten Path, tracing the choices made by the Newman family as political and social forces unleash violent changes that will alter Britain forever.
Second, we have Bee Lewis’s potent psychological mystery, Liminal. We find Esther, a pregnant amputee, relocating to Rosgill in the Scottish Highlands, starting a new life and preparing to restore an abandoned railway station. Disturbing events send her world into a spiral of dreams and disintegration – and who is that pursuing her in the forest?
Finally, we have Martin Nathan’s crime debut, A Place of Safety. A boy who commits a monstrous act and exiles himself from his family, but years later, returns to confront his past. Yet his attempts to reconcile with his family set events in motion that will lead to a terrifying disaster.
