New Releases - May 2024

Here's a snapshot of what I think was published for the first time in May 2024 (and is usually a UK date but occasionally will be a US or Australian date). 113 titles this month. If I've missed anything or got the date wrong, do please leave a comment. 

Please note that, unless specifically mentioned, when a book has differing print and ebook release date, I use the print release date. Translators' names are included where known.

Further to my post about writers of colour and the Theakston Crime Novel of the Year, I have identified the writers of colour (that I know of) with a ***.
