Book Review, Meet the Editor

Totally Addictive Crime, Thriller and Suspense on the Small Screen – what you should binge-watch this weekend!

Despite how much I love my job of helping crime, suspense and thriller authors’ manuscripts to ooze tension and grip readers, spending all day staring at words on the page can take its toll – I think my glasses prescription has got even stronger in lockdown! – so sometimes there is nothing better than curling up on the sofa and watching a good drama of an evening. 

Addictive Thrillers

Despite how much I love my job of helping crime, suspense and thriller authors’ manuscripts to ooze tension and grip readers, spending all day staring at words on the page can take its toll – I think my glasses prescription has got even stronger in lockdown! – so sometimes there is nothing better than curling up on the sofa and watching a good drama of an evening. 

So, I thought I’d share what gripping TV is having us glued to the small screen.

And at the moment, J and I are obsessed with Netflix’s Lupin. J is trying to learn French as one of his lockdown hobbies, but I’m just loving the fantastic writing. If I had to describe it in one sentence, it’s a bit like a French Hustle (another brilliant TV show), but even better. So, do yourselves a favour, watch it this evening – you won’t regret it.

However, tonight Netflix premieres its new drama: The One. I read the book that the series is based on by John Marrs a couple of years back, and it was utterly compelling, so I have high hopes for the televisions series. I’d always recommend you read the book first, but in lieu of that, check out my review here.

However, if you don’t have Netflix, fear not, as I’ve got you covered, because I’ve compiled a list some binge-worthy series to get you through these final weeks of being stuck at home. Starting with the new TV adaptation of Peter James’s Roy Grace series, GRACE, which starts this Sunday!

Check out the other suggestions below, but I can’t be held responsible if you don’t leave your sofa all weekend.

*Don’t watch this before going to bed. Take it from me, you won’t sleep a wink!
Totally creepy and yet utterly compelling viewing!
Suspense to have you utterly gripped. But read the book first!

Jed Mercurio never lets you down. Fantastic writing!
Light-hearted Sunday viewing for sure!
Can’t go wrong with a Harlan Coben. And if you love this, watch THE STRANGER next!
Great drama, but don’t watch it in the dubbed English version. The original Spanish (with subtitles, if you’re linguistically challenged like me!) is so much better!
HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER’s first series is so strong you’ll be unable to switch it off!
