Big Island LA (2023)
(Never Count Out the Dead, book 2)
Boston Teran
"Start and there's no stopping. Big Island, L.A. is a dazzling signpost on the road to wherever noir is going."
thumb
Light on Bone (2022)
(Georgia O'Keeffe Mystery, book 1)
Kathryn Lasky
"Georgia O'Keeffe as an amateur sleuth? A daring idea that works like a charm for the highly talented Kathryn Lasky. What a wide range of characters, from the very good to the very bad, she brings to life in this wonderful novel! And the portrait of the artist is superb."
thumb
Eat the Dark (2007)
Joe Schreiber
"One part noir, one part horror, one part the uniquely talented Joe Schreiber. Dark, chilling, scary - I couldn't put it down."
