A J Banner recommends
Light of the Fire (2024)
Sarahlyn Bruck
"A deftly crafted, moving novel of friendship and family, the weight of long-kept secrets, and the healing power of owning up to our mistakes. Absorbing, heartrending, and ultimately hopeful, Light of the Fire is unputdownable."
And There He Kept Her (2022)
(Ben Packard, book 1)
Joshua Moehling
"When Deputy Sheriff Ben Packard investigates the disappearance of two teenagers in Sandy Lake, Minnesota, he exposes the seamy underbelly of a small American town. And There He Kept Her is a sharp, intense thriller combining a dark plot with a relentless pace. An absorbing, impressive debut."
Girl In Ice (2022)
Erica Ferencik
"This dark, suspenseful, visceral thriller combines the pressing issue of our time--human destruction of the environment--with a gripping and beautifully written mystery set in the frigid far reaches of the Arctic Circle. Unflinching, devastating but ultimately hopeful, GIRL IN ICE grabbed me and didn't let me go until the very last page."
