S A Cosby recommends
Undercard (2019)
David Albertyn
"Undercard is a dizzying rollercoaster of suspense and action that examines the complexities of brotherhood and the consequences of tragic masculinity. Albertyn’s pitch-perfect understanding of the bonds of friendship gives this novel a powerful emotional center. If The Hangover was a serious suspense novel, it would be Undercard."
Hidden Victims (2020)
(Nichelle Clarke Mystery, book 8)
LynDee Walker
"LynDee Walker is a modern voice in crime fiction with a southern belle’s charm...if you like Tami Hoag or Nora Roberts, you will love her work."

(Dickie Cornish, book 1)
Christopher Chambers
"Chris Chambers has created a wholly original character that exists in a world at once familiar but startlingly brutal."
Girl, 11 (2021)

Bath Haus (2021)
P J Vernon

Mark Westmoreland
"A Violent Gospel is a visceral slice of existential cornbread."

Her Name is Knight (2021)
(Nena Knight, book 1)
Yasmin Angoe
"Yasmin Angoe’s debut novel, Her Name Is Knight, is an amazing action packed international thriller full of suspense, danger, and even romance. It’s like a John Wick prequel except John is a beautiful African woman with a particular set of skills."

Rob Hart
"An engrossing and thought-provoking sci-fi mystery that is also an achingly beautiful meditation on grief and the pain of lost love."
Don't Know Tough (2022)
Eli Cranor

Dark Factory (2022)
Kathe Koja
"Some writers are born to spin tales from the shadows. Kathe Koja is one such author. Dark Factory is a unique and esoteric experience. A journey into the throbbing heart of creativity itself. Where we find kisses and cuts. A fantastic story."
This Train (2022)
James Grady
"The term 'master storyteller' is bandied about quite often these days, but in the case of James Grady it isn't just a marketing phrase. This Train confirms what most readers have known for decades.

Andy Davidson
"Andy Davidson is quickly establishing himself as the newest master of southern gothic horror. The Hollow Kind seeps into your subconscious and waits for you in your nightmares."
Everybody Knows (2023)
Jordan Harper
"Just as Ellory mastered the atavistic heart of 1950's corruption, so Jordan Harper has mastered articulating the Day-Glo Technicolor nightmare that is postmodern Los Angeles. Everybody Knows is filled with ballsy movers and shakers, of course, but also plastic social media influencers, high-rent hoods, nihilistic cops, and the sorts of lost souls you'll never forget. Everybody Knows is an absolute tour de force, a trip through an exclusive alluring Hell where everyone gets what they want and just what they deserve."
