Grady Hendrix recommends
Ten Dead Comedians (2017)
Fred Van Lente
"Fred Van Lente delivers an Agatha Christie twisty mystery filled with all the cruel, horrible, and violent deaths that only stand-up comedians truly deserve."
Good Neighbours (2021)
Sarah Langan
"Where the hell has Sarah Langan been? Because she suddenly pops up again after being MIA for eleven years and shotguns everyone in the face with an all-American horror novel about friendships—deep, shallow, toxic, true—that's unpredictable enough to make every page-turn stomach-crampingly stressful."
Something More Than Night (2021)
Kim Newman
"Newman's noir teams Boris Karloff with Raymond Chandler to solve gothic crimes in a 1930s Hollywood full of man-made monsters, dodgy movie studios, and ice-cold gimlets. Written in a James Ellroy rat-a-tat it's the perfect book for a summer afternoon by the pool with plenty of cocktails. If more mysteries were written like this, I’d read more mysteries."
