Lincoln Child recommends
thumb
The Devil's Playground (2023)
Craig Russell
"Craig Russell walks a razor's edge between gothic suspense and horror. . . a masterful thriller."
thumb
Old Country (2022)
Harrison Query and Matt Query
"An artful chiller. OLD COUNTRY stirs up our primal dread of a hostile wilderness, indifferent to man, that's reminiscent of such great works as Algernon Blackwood's THE WENDIGO."
thumb
Breakout (2021)
Paul Herron
"From page one, BREAKOUT slams the cell door on the reader and refuses to release them. It's a refreshingly clever story that delights in taking out preconceptions of how a thriller should play out -- and then not only ups the ante, but goes all in. Paul Herron plays for keeps."
