John Grisham recommends
thumb
The Smoke in Our Eyes (2024)
James Grady
"Grady is a master of intrigue."
thumb
The Caretaker (2023)
Ron Rash
"With each Ron Rash story, you expect flawed people trying desperately to survive against the odds and a rich sense of place, and images that linger, and beautiful language that you catch yourself reading over and over. What you don't always expect is a wicked plot. The Caretaker delivers all of the above in a story that becomes a race to the finish."
thumb
Two Nights in Lisbon (2022)
Chris Pavone
"I defy anyone to read the first twenty pages of this breakneck novel, then try to put it down for five minutes. It can't be done."
