Nancy Allen recommends
A Rough Way to Go (2024)
Sam Garonzik
"With a stay-at-home dad as the unlikely hero of the tale, Sam Garonzik puts an engaging twist on the domestic thriller. His debut, A Rough Way To Go, is a compelling read from a fresh new voice."
The Ascent (2024)
Adam Plantinga
"Not since Joseph Wambaugh released The Choirboys has a cop thriller delivered this level of authenticity, and The Ascent wears it like a badge. In his debut novel, Adam Plantinga weaves a jailhouse tale that serves up thrills from the first chapter through the final page. The book's protagonist, a world-weary Detroit cop, is a revelation. Watch out, Jack Reacher - Kurt Argento has arrived, and he's putting his rivals in the shade."
Dry County (2019)
Jake Hinkson
"Dry County is a hillbilly noir jewel. Jake Hinkson reveals the underbelly of small town life in this gritty thriller as he depicts the fall of a Southern preacher. An absorbing tale."
