Just as gripping is Eden Summer by Liz Flanagan (David Fickling), a thriller deeply embedded in the west Yorkshire landscape. Gothy Jess and beautiful Eden are best friends who have been through some tough times – then Eden goes missing. Told over the course of a day, with flashbacks to the last year, it’s a breathless read as Jess races across Yorkshire hills to try to discover Eden, and the truth, before it’s too late."
