Five top winter mysteries

B.P. Walter is the author of A Version of the Truth (published in the US as The Couple's Secret) and Hold Your Breath.

He was born and raised in Essex and after spending his childhood and teenage years reading compulsively, he worked in bookshops then went to the University of Southampton to study Film and English followed by an MA in Film & Cultural Management.

Walter's new novel is The Locked Attic.

At the Waterstones blog he tagged five favorite page-turners for the winter season. One title on the list:
Shiver by Allie Reynolds

A reunion of friends in the French Alps leads to emotional upheaval, buried resentments and, of course, murder in Allie Reynold’s page-turning debut Shiver. Like [Jo Nesbø's] The Snowman, there’s a terrific sense of place at the heart of this novel and the final third is almost unbearably tense as it zooms towards an impactful conclusion.
