Lou Berney recommends

The Poison Artist (2016)
Jonathan Moore
"Jonathan Moore has written a wickedly smart, emotionally complex novel that will haunt you long after you turn the last page. Whether you find it seductively terrifying or terrifyingly seductive, in my mind, The Poison Artist is better than Hitchcock."

The Summer That Melted Everything (2016)
Tiffany McDaniel
"The Summer That Melted Everything is a blast of hellfire, humor, and heartbreak that’s part Flannery O’Connor, part Stephen King, and wholly original."

IQ (2016)
(IQ, book 1)
Joe Ide
"Joe Ide is a bad man: IQ is so hellaciously entertaining, deeply moving, and electrifyingly alive that you'll want to read it twice."

Dangerous Ends (2017)
(Pete Fernandez, book 3)
Alex Segura
"DANGEROUS ENDS is a tense, gripping exploration of what happens when a bloody past collides with a dangerous present."

The Finishing School (2017)
Joanna Goodman
"THE FINISHING SCHOOL pulls back the curtain to expose a fascinating world of desire, betrayal, and dangerous secrets."

The Quiet Child (2017)
John Burley
"A riveting novel that engages both heart and mind. John Burley has an eye for detail, a feel for story, and a deep sympathy for his characters."
