Justin Cronin recommends
The Puzzle Master (2023)
Danielle Trussoni
"Utterly absorbing . . . The 'master' of the title isn't the only master here. The word applies equally to the author of this fabulous novel."
We Are the Light (2022)
Matthew Quick
"Matthew Quick's We Are the Light is a treasure of a novel - wise, humane, and deeply moving. Whoever you are, whatever trials you've faced in life, read it and be healed."
Upgrade (2022)
Blake Crouch
"The incomparable Blake Crouch has, once again, completely blown my mind. Upgrade is more than a brain-bending thriller; it's a siren in the night, warning us all of the dangers of playing God with the human species."
On the Free (2017)
Coert Voorhees
"On the Free is a roaring adventure that will make you stand up and cheer."
The Last One (2016)
Alexandra Oliva
"The Last One seamlessly melds two of our contemporary obsessions - the threat of global catastrophe and the staged drama of reality TV - into a fiercely imagined tale of the human psyche under stress. This is an uncompromising, thought-provoking debut."
The Poison Artist (2016)
Jonathan Moore
"Magnificent, thoroughly unnerving . . . I dare you to look away."
