Nelson DeMille recommends
The Boy with the Star Tattoo (2024)
Talia Carner
"Historical novels don't get much better than The Boy with the Star Tattoo, and it's obvious that the author did her homework, then sat down to a labor of love. The mark of a great historical novel is where the fictional characters become more real than the historical events they are living through. Talia Carner is a writer's writer and a reader's delight."
The Siberia Job (2023)
Josh Haven
"A ground-breaking novel that redefines the conventional action/adventure, chase and escape genre."
The Lindbergh Nanny (2022)
Mariah Fredericks
"A bold and creative retelling of the Lindbergh baby kidnapping, a masterful blending of fact and fiction that is as compelling as it is entertaining. We know how this tragedy ends, but Mariah Fredericks takes us on an extraordinary journey along a different path to get there. The writing is superb and the characters--real and fictional--come alive on every page."
Into the Groove (2022)
(Steady Groove Deed, book 1)
Lawrence Kelter
"Lawrence Kelter is an exciting new novelist, who reminds me of an early Robert Ludlum."
Undermoney (2022)
Jay Newman
"From page one you are immersed in a world of international intrigue and political power play that is nothing short of jaw-dropping. Jay Newman's Undermoney combines the fresh feel and energy of a debut novel with the self-assured writing of a man who knows something we don't know and knows it well. Truly a ground-breaking, unconventional, and wildly entertaining peek behind the curtain of American politics, financial skullduggery, and high-stakes global conflict."
Basil's War (2021)
Stephen Hunter
"An outstanding WWII spy thriller. Basil St. Florian was the James Bond of his time."
