Peter Blauner recommends
The Price You Pay (2024)
Jim Fusilli
"Jim Fusilli has done a lot of good writing in his time, but The Price You Pay is his best book. It's everything you want urban crime fiction to be: taut, seriously suspenseful, closely observed, wry, and very knowing about the way the real world works. I started off admiring the precision of the writing, and then found the pages flying. I was going to say George V. Higgins, the author of The Friends of Eddie Coyle, would have liked this novel. But then again, he might have just been pissed that he didn't write it himself."
Sweet Thing (2023)
David Swinson
"They're going to have to find a new spot on the color wheel for Sweet Thing. Because there's dark, there's noir, and then there's David Swinson. His new book is the real deal: tough, terse, rocket-paced and authentic. If you're reader enough to handle the strong stuff off the top shelf, this is for you."
Wealth Management (2022)
Edward Zuckerman
"An exciting and suspenseful state-of-the-art thriller about money, terrorism, and the way we live now. Ed Zuckerman makes the leap from being a big-time TV writer into novel world as gracefully as he made the leap from investigative journalism into writing for the likes of Miami Vice and Law & Order. You'll be up late turning the pages. Highly recommended."
