A L Gaylin recommends
Hidden (2015)
(Black Hat, book 1)
Karen E Olson
"An edge-of-your-seat thriller with surprises at every turn."
When She's Gone (2016)
Jane Palmer
"From the very first page, When She's Gone grabs hold of you and doesn't let go."
A Map of the Dark (2018)
(Searchers , book 1)
Karen Ellis
"One of the most compelling psychological thrillers I've read in a long time... grabs you from the very first page and does not loosen its grip. I read this book in a day - I simply could not put it down - but I will be thinking about it for much longer."
It All Falls Down (2018)
(Nora Watts, book 2)
Sheena Kamal
"Suspenseful, atmospheric and often deeply moving . . . one of the most complicated and fascinating protagonists I've come across in a long time. I'd follow Nora Watts (and her dog) anywhere."
#Fashion Victim (2018)
Amina Akhtar
"Full of suspense, social satire, and deliciously dark humor, #FashionVictim gives 'killer wardrobe' a whole new meaning. I couldn't put it down."
Sophie Last Seen (2018)
Marlene Adelstein
"Unique, mysterious, and thoroughly absorbing, Sophie Last Seen is a touching story of love, loss and survival. I loved it."
