Dan Fesperman recommends
Death Notice (2018)
(Death Notice, book 1)
Zhou Haohui
"A splendid hall of mirrors that lures you headlong down its twisting passageways with a bounty of literary trap doors, hidden stairways, and hairpin turns. You’ll emerge breathless and eager for more."
Billy Boyle (2006)
(Billy Boyle World War II Mystery, book 1)
James R Benn
"It is a pleasure marching off to war with spirited Billy Boyle. He is a charmer, richly imagined and vividly rendered. And he tells a finely suspenseful yarn."
