Glen Erik Hamilton recommends
The Quiet Child (2017)
John Burley
"A beautifully realized thriller, full of striking imagery, and so haunting I thought about it for days afterward. It starts with a parent's greatest nightmare--your children being abducted--and then asks: What might make you question whether you wanted them back? John Burley is a fearless talent."
Idyll Fears (2017)
(Thomas Lynch, book 2)
Stephanie Gayle
"If you haven't discovered Stephanie Gayle yet, welcome to the show. Idyll Fears is a gripping read, a ticking-clock thriller populated with nuanced characters and anchored in convincing police work. Thomas Lynch is one of my new favorite leads - smart, spiky, and struggling to make his own place in a town that needs him, but may not deserve him. I can’t wait to visit Idyll again."
The Good Detective (2019)
(Detective P.T. Marsh, book 1)
John McMahon
"The Good Detective is a debut with all of the ingredients: snappy procedural details, a sharp sense of place in the Deep South, and relentless momentum. John McMahon's outstanding first in the series introduces a sardonic and sympathetic lead in P.T. Marsh, and launches both McMahon and Marsh into what promises to be a great career in crime fiction."
