Crime, drama, historical fiction - the choice is yours from the Josephine Moon episode's round of recommended books. Suspense and ambiguity set the tone for all three picks. Josephine kicks off with The Music Shop, a novel by Rachel Joyce, set in Margaret Thatcher's dystopian England.

This set of recommended reads comes from authors who were appearing at the Perth Festival Writers Week, and we have some real humdingers.
