Victor Gischler recommends
The Blade This Time (2017)
Jon Bassoff
"Creepy, intriguing, compelling and well-crafted, Bassoff's novel is the kind of thing you didn't realize you were looking for until you're already up to your neck in it. And by then you're hooked."
Kill Monster (2019)
Sean Doolittle
"With heart, humor, genuine thrills, an intriguing premise, and a cinematic climax guaranteed to keep you turning pages, Kill Monster is the Sean Doolittle novel you've been waiting for. It's hardly my job to tell Simon Pegg what his next film project should be . . . but it should be this."
