Peter Farris recommends
Sweet Thing (2023)
"You may beat the rap but you can't beat the ride in one of the most propulsive and pitch-perfect crime novels of recent memory. With prose as smooth as an Elvin Hayes jumper, Sweet Thing is not only an authoritative mystery, but also an elegantly tragic character study, revealing that the line between junkies and judges, larcenists and lawmen, can be extraordinarily thin. David Swinson is at the apex of his craft here, writing detective fiction that is vital, gritty, and human... noir that transcends the bricklayer procedurals to get at the dark night of his characters' souls."
The Nightmare Man (2023)
J H Markert
"A clear heir to Stephen King, Peter Straub and Richard Matheson, J.H. Markert is an absolute architect in this dizzying, dazzling and utterly spooky descent into the mouth of madness. Equal parts thriller, detective novel and atmospheric folk horror extravaganza, The Nightmare Man is stunningly clever, richly layered and perfectly paced, with revelations and scares that kept this Constant Reader up well into the night. You'll never think about a bad dream the same way again."
