This is #4 in the series. Do I need to read the other three first?
Or at least #1? Just wondering. I trust your recommendations!

For my Value Book nomination I will nominate
The Thief Taker (The Thief Taker #1) by C.S. Quinn

The Thief Taker by C.S. Quinn

The blurb:-
"The year is 1665. Black Death ravages London. A killer stalks the streets in a plague doctor’s hood and mask...

When a girl is gruesomely murdered, thief taker Charlie Tuesday reluctantly agrees to take on the case. But the horrific remains tell him this is no isolated death. The killer’s mad appetites are part of a master plan that could destroy London – and reveal the dark secrets of Charlie’s own past.

Now the thief taker must find this murderous mastermind before the plague obliterates the evidence street by street. This terrifying pursuit will take Charlie deep into the black underbelly of old London, where alchemy, witchcraft and blood-spells collide.

In a city drowned in darkness, death could be the most powerful magic of all."

I have nominated this mainly as my wife has had it recommended by one of her friends and I read the blurb and thought it could be worth a read.

My Main group nomination is
Disclaimer by Renée Knight

Disclaimer by Renée Knight

Imagine if the next thriller you opened was all about you.

The blurb....
"Finding a mysterious novel at her bedside plunges documentary filmmaker Catherine Ravenscroft into a living nightmare. Though ostensibly fiction, The Perfect Stranger recreates in vivid, unmistakable detail the terrible day Catherine became hostage to a dark secret, a secret that only one other person knew--and that person is dead.

Now that the past is catching up with her, Catherine’s world is falling apart. Her only hope is to confront what really happened on that awful day even if the shocking truth might destroy her."

Last day to get any nominations in.

As we need a choice for value read, I nominate Rogue Flamingo by L.A. Kent Rogue Flamingo by L.A. Kent. Despite cover, which shows a phenocopterus ruber ruber, it definitely qualifies as British, tho a Cornishman would insist, not as English.
