Paul Doiron recommends

Available Dark (2012)
(Cass Neary, book 2)
Elizabeth Hand
"Available Dark is dark stuff indeed. Elizabeth Hand takes us on a dangerous and drug-fueled trip through a world of art fetishists, death metal bands, and Nordic blood cults. This book disturbs and delights."
thumb
The Silent Girls (2014)
(Canaan Crime, book 1)
Eric Rickstad
"Eric Rickstad's The Silent Girls is a bone-chilling mystery set in one of New England's darkest corners, the kind of place travelers are well-advised to avoid after nightfall. This well-crafted book will have you staying up late, turning pages and afraid to turn off the light."
thumb
Winter at the Door (2015)
(Lizzie Snow Mystery, book 1)
Sarah Graves
"With Winter at the Door, Sarah Graves has pulled off a small miracle. Through artfully precise language and a plot that kept me turning pages well past my bedtime, she transported me to a North Woods village that seemed utterly real in the vividness of its details and yet almost dreamlike. I got out my map of Maine, looking for the backwoods town of Bearkill, and was surprised when I couldn’t find it. What a fantastic setting, and what a great character in Lizzie Snow. I can’t wait for the next book."

The Second Mother (2020)
Jenny Milchman
"Jenny Milchman is one of the best suspense writers at work today, and The Second Mother is a page turner extraordinaire. Milchman takes the nostalgic daydream of teaching in a one-room schoolhouse and turns it ever so slowly into an urgent nightmare. That the story is set on a remote island off the coast of Maine - one of the most claustrophobic places a stranger can ever set foot - is an added bonus."
