Invitation to a Killer
Crime writer turned amateur sleuth Augusta Hawke is back and once again finds herself embroiled in another mystery. Malliet does not disappoint with her second Augusta Hawke mystery – the wit and dry sense of humour of her female protagonist is a joy to read as she navigates the colourful array of dinner guests – and potential murderers! – while trying to avoid becoming a victim herself. I can’t wait for readers to get stuck into this cosy mystery.
A Quiet Teacher

Adam Oyebanji’s first mystery novel is a masterclass in marrying a gripping whodunnit with wider themes of race, class, identity, and education. Protagonist Greg Abimbola grapples not only with solving a murder, but with the daily struggles of being a Black teacher at a wealthy, and mostly white, private school. Both a beautifully constructed murder mystery and a biting piece of social commentary.
