Tracy Clark recommends
The Death of Us (2023)
Lori Rader-Day
"Lori Rader-Day's The Death of Us is a deftly crafted, winding road of family secrets, unsolved disappearance, murder, betrayal, and complicated lives caught in the crosshairs of suspicion and lies. Masterful. Riveting. What a ride!"
Broadway Butterfly (2023)
Sara DiVello
"1920s Manhattan. A dead party girl. A list of suspects worthy of a killer game of Clue. Yes, please. Broadway Butterfly is the cat's pajamas. What a ride!"
Time's Undoing (2023)
Cheryl A Head
"Cheryl Head's Time's Undoing is truly mesmerizing. What a first-rate melding of painful past and hopeful future told by a master storyteller who gives readers a visceral look at the human cost of hate and fear and both heart and wings to redemptive peace. You won't be able to put it down. I couldn't."
