Steve Hockensmith recommends
The Portrait of Doreene Gray (2012)
(Gigi Chihuahua Mystery , book 2)
Esri Allbritten
"A little bit X-Files, a little bit Agatha Christie and a whole lotta charming. If you like your mysteries baffling, bizarre and, above all, fun, you're going to love it."
The Unquiet Dead (2015)
(Rachel Getty and Esa Khattak, book 1)
Ausma Zehanat Khan
"It would be enough that Ausma Zehanat Khan's 'The Unquiet Dead' gives us an intriguing new detective team in Esa Khattak and Sgt. Rachel Getty. But it does far more than that. Khan creates an engrossing story that allows her to sift through the emotional rubble of real-world tragedy. In the end, it isn't just gripping. It's devastating."
Fury From the Tomb (2018)
(Institute for Singular Antiquities, book 1)
SA Sidor
"Little-known fact: H Rider Haggard and H P Lovecraft once stole a time machine and piloted it decades into the future, where they convinced Sergio Leone and Steven Spielberg to help them create the greatest horror-adventure-Western mash-up imaginable to human minds. Or so I’m assuming, because I just read Fury From the Tomb. Obviously, ‘S A Sidor’ is the pseudonym they all agreed upon so no meddlers would come after the time machine. But I’m not fooled."
Murder Goes to Market (2020)
Daisy Bateman
"Murder Goes to Market is perfect for any reader in the market for mystery. You'll find a puzzling whodunnit, an endearing amateur sleuth to root for and, in bucolic San Elmo, California, a setting you'll wish you could visit. And it's all handcrafted by the finest local artisans. (Well, or wonderfully written by Daisy Bateman, anyway.) Plop a copy into your shopping basket today!"
