Timothy Hallinan recommends
Sick (2011)
(Project Eden , book 1)
Brett Battles
"SICK is Brett Battles at his best, a thriller that also chills, with a secret at its core that's almost too scary to be contained within the covers of a book."
The Death of the Mantis (2011)
(Detective Kubu, book 3)
Michael Stanley
"The best book yet in one of the best series going."
A Killing At Cotton Hill (2013)
(Samuel Craddock Mysteries, book 1)
Terry Shames
"I love Samuel Craddock, I love this town, and I love this series of books."
Scot Free (2018)
(Last Ditch Mystery, book 1)
Catriona McPherson
"The only times I stopped turning the pages were when I was laughing so hard it took both hands just to hold the book. McPherson is an ace plotter, a vivid, original stylist, and great company. A great beginning to a new series."
The Fairfax Incident (2018)
(Charlie Doherty, book 3)
Terrence McCauley
"A total knockout. A slam-bang mystery and a story that just won't quit. You will not put it down."
