Set in Wythenshawe during the mid-1980s, Oxblood by Tom Benn is the story of the Dodds Family. The Dodds family once ruled Manchester’s underworld but now the men are dead, leaving three generations of women trapped in a house haunted by violence, harbouring an unregistered baby. Over the course of a few days, the Dodds women must each confront the true legacy of the men who have defined their lives; and seize the opportunity to break the cycle for good. A blistering portrait of a family on fire, Oxblood lays bare the horror of violence, the exile of grief, and the extraordinary power of love.

Tokyo Redux is the latest novel from David Peace (The Damned Utd, Red Riding Quartet) and focuses on one of history’s great unsolved murders. Set over three time periods, it follows the murder investigation of a railway chief in postwar Japan via three different protagonists – an American cop, a jaded private eye, and a former spy.
