A Death in the Medina

My recommendation this week is a thriller set in the dusty heat of Morocco – the perfect crime novel to read on your sun lounger, whilst sipping something cool. Death in the Medina is James von Leyden’s debut novel, which introduces us to young detective Karim Belkacem and his world of solving murders in Marrakech.

This thriller is described as ‘clever, captivating and colourful’ by Philip Gwynne Jones and is the ideal novel if you’re thinking of jetting off to Morocco, or you just want to be transported there from your sofa.
