Dry Bones in the Valley (2012)
(Henry Farrell, book 1)
"A tough, edgy thriller...I wish like hell that my name were on the cover."
Bull Mountain (2015)
"Panowich stamps words on the page as if they've been blasted from the barrel of a shotgun. Wonderfully rich and evocative."
Strangers in Budapest (2017)
"Annie and Will, a young American couple with a new child, repair to Budapest to forge their future and escape their past. What they find is a city smothered by heat and tangled in history. When their paths cross with a mysterious elderly man named Edward Weiss, Annie discovers that she's caught up in a life of tragedy that forces her to confront the losses in her own past. Strangers in Budapest is a beautifully written mystery propelled by well-crafted and fully imagined characters. Atmospheric and ominous, this novel asks us what we're willing to do to start over in a new world when the old world won't let us go."
