On the Radar: Beyond Fear, and more

Isolation is a major theme in current affairs at the moment and it’s also a theme in two or three of this week’s new books. We lead off with Jaye Ford’s psychological thriller Beyond Fear, which takes us away to into the Australian countryside. But if you check out the covers of the new books by David Baldacci, Joe Ricker and BE Jones, they also have a lost, lonely and dangerous feel to them. We’re still on lockdown due to Covid-19 here at Crime Fiction Lover, but we’re keeping the new book suggestions coming your way, along with plenty of reviews.

We’ll get through this. Stay safe and stay well.
