Give Up the Dead (2017)
(Jay Porter, book 3)
Joe Clifford
"Joe Clifford's propulsive third installment starring Jay Porter, a flawed but surprisingly thoughtful and self-aware protagonist, kept me turning the pages long into the night."

A Beautiful Poison (2017)
Lydia Kang
"The perfect blend of mystery, history, and science, Lydia Kang’s A Beautiful Poison is an entertaining read from beginning to end. A classic whodunnit with a touch of dark humor, Kang’s first adult novel will hopefully not be her last."

Watch Me (2018)
Jody Gehrman
"Jody Gehrman's WATCH ME is a mesmerizing, intimate, and utterly terrifying journey inside the mind of a psychopath and his prey. Sam's obsession with Kate will make you uncomfortable, but you won't be able to look away. Sharp, twisted, and seductive, Gehrman has written the ultimate cat-and-mouse thriller."

Find You in the Dark (2018)
Nathan Ripley
"One heck of an addictive thriller. Find You in the Dark by Nathan Ripley is an original, inventive take on what happens when you go looking where you shouldn’t."

In the Vines (2018)
Shannon Kirk
"Flowers in the Attic meets 'The Tell-Tale Heart' with a dash of Psycho, Shannon Kirk’s In the Vines is as dark, tangled and twisty as the title would suggest. A fascinating portrayal of madness, wealth, and decaying family legacy, Kirk’s superbly crafted gothic thriller will have you gasping the entire way through. This is an insanely good ride into the mind of a madwoman…just remember to hang on, lest you not make it back out."

One Small Sacrifice (2019)
(Shadows of New York, book 1)
Hilary Davidson
"I tore through this book! Hilary Davidson is at the top of her game with this masterful and twisty new novel that’s jam-packed with suspense. Filled with wonderfully diverse characters, breakneck pacing, and surprises at every turn, this modern mystery will thrill even the most old-school crime fiction lovers. This book satisfied me on so many levels."

One Night Gone (2019)
Tara Laskowski
"There is so much to love in Tara Laskowski's One Night Gone. At its core, it's a mystery, and a perfectly paced, well-plotted one at that. But it's also a beautifully lyrical coming-of-age story that depicts the socioeconomic divide of small beach town life, with all the 1980s flavor to go with it. Laskowski is a truly gifted storyteller with that 'X-factor' you look for-but rarely find-in a debut author. Spectacular."
