Tracy Clark recommends
Vanishing in the Haight (2019)
(Colleen Hayes Mystery, book 1)
"I've just three words to say about Vanishing in the Haight by Max Tomlinson--Wow. Just. Wow. Tomlinson's taut, spare, evocative writing style is an absolute beauty. You couldn't ask for a better guide through the dark, shadowy flashback haze of '70s San Francisco."
(Kelly Pruett Mystery, book 1)
"Mary Keliikoa's DERAILED is a humdinger of a good read. Sharp, detailed writing, a riveting plot and well-drawn characters make it practically unputdownable. And how exciting to have another tough, smart, female PI to follow. I can't wait for PI Kelly Pruett's next case!"
The Fire Thief (2020)
(Dark Paradise Mystery, book 1)
"An exciting blend of Hawaiian folklore and mystery. From page one to a stirring finish, Debra Bokur delivers a real page turner here. And Kali Mahoe, wonderfully rich, complicated and compelling, is the real deal. I can't wait for her next adventure."
By Way of Sorrow (2020)
(Erin McCabe, book 1)
"Robyn Gigl's By Way of Sorrow is a taut, engaging, page-turner with a lot of heart. Lawyer Erin McCabe and her law partner Duane Swisher are on the case of a transgender teen accused of murdering the scion of a ruthless politician bent on burying the case, and the accused, at all costs. A good read. McCabe's a protagonist with a lot of depth. Two thumbs up for Gigl."
