Missing White Woman (2024)
Kellye Garrett
"You never know what's coming next in Missing White Woman. Kellye Garrett writes with an unstoppable momentum and cultural edge that makes this a thriller not to be missed."
thumb
Leave no Trace (2024)
(National Parks Thriller, book 1)
A J Landau
"Leave No Trace is an expertly crafted gut-punch thriller. The action leaves you aghast, always guessing and very glad you read it. A.J. Landau takes no prisoners when it comes to high octane, fast moving storytelling."
thumb
The Secret Hours (2023)
Mick Herron
"The Secret Hours is wonderful. It's Mick Herron at his best, taking us into a dark world where there is high action, a spinning moral compass, and hidden motives on every page. And, oh, yes, the fun - Herron's greatest talent may be the examination of serious things with a perfectly wry sense of humor."
