Tamar selected Tideline by Penny Hancock
Iíve just finished reading this richly atmospheric, evocative novel, set in South East London on the banks of the Thames at Greenwich. Itís a claustrophobic thriller in which the river itself becomes the most important character Ė dark, dangerous, beguiling and murky with secrets.
