Matt Coyle recommends
The Last Girl (2017)
(Dexter Vega Mystery, book 1)
Danny López
"The Last Girl is a boozy, hard-boiled trek through the sun-drenched streets of Sarasota, Florida to the darkened jungles of Mexico where everyone's playing an angle. A wild ride!"
A-List (2017)
(Jake Longly, book 2)
D P Lyle
"Former baseball player turned P.I. Jake Longly is back on the trail in A-List. A rollicking thrill ride through the mean streets and tasty restaurants of New Orleans. Murder, mobbed-up bad guys, Hollywood heartthrobs, and laughs! What more could you want? D.P. Lyle is at the top of his game!"
The Guilt We Carry (2019)
Samuel W Gailey
"The Guilt We Carry is heartbreaking, hopeful and touching...Gailey lyrically weaves a story of loss and guilt into one of redemption. Never has misery been so elegantly written."
All That Fall (2021)
(Emma Lawson Mystery, book 1)
Kris Calvin
"An intricate, textured, thinking person's thriller."
Endings (2021)
(Endings, book 1)
Linda L Richards
"Linda L. Richards' Endings grabs you by the throat on page one and doesn't let go until The End. The writing is crisp, and the story has plenty of whiplashing twists and turns. Endings is the confident return of a writer at the height of her powers."
L. A. Burning (2022)
D C Taylor
"In L. A. Burning, D. C. Taylor captures Hollywood's dark underbelly in searing detail with blunt, bare-knuckled prose. An incisive, compelling read."
Hidden Pieces (2022)
(Misty Pines Mystery)
Mary Keliikoa
"Moody, evocative, yet propulsive."
