The Convert's Song (2014)
(Valentine Pescatore, book 2)
Sebastian Rotella
"Riveting.... Skillfully layered.... The Convert's Song is just that rare thing, a rousing thriller with a fine weave. ... There's plenty of action, all of it fast-paced and gripping, but it's the relationship between the men that drives the story, giving it depth and urgency.... His background as a journalist proves useful in his fiction. He handles complex subjects with confidence and seeming ease."
Black Swan Rising (2018)
Lisa Brackmann
"Black Swan Rising is a terrifying novel that focuses on a political campaign plagued by gun violence and misogyny. It cuts deep in a way that is all too distressingly believable, but Brackmann's smart prose and winning female protagonists go a long way towards fighting the darkness."
Restoration Heights (2019)
Wil Medearis
"Restoration Heights is a smart social novel that uses the expectations and conventions of urban crime fiction to ask provocative questions about the misdeeds done and damage suffered in a community undergoing sudden gentrification. Medearis treads sensitive territory with self-awareness and nuance, all while telling a good story that moves."
Pretty as a Picture (2020)
Elizabeth Little
"Pretty as a Picture is an atmospheric thriller that sparkles with intelligence and irrepressible wit, anchored by the singular voice of Marissa Dahl, a mega-competent female film editor plagued by anxiety. Elizabeth Little has an impeccable ear for dialogue and a sharp eye for detail, and she's created a page-turner that is as well written as it is captivating. I enjoyed every scene and sentence of this glorious book."
