Stuart M Kaminsky recommends

Picture Postcard (1990)
(Matthew Riordan Mystery, book 4)
Fredrick D Huebner
"Judgment by Fire was terrific, and Picture Postcard is even better. No one writes better novels about lawyers than Fredrick Huebner."

The Miracle Strip (1998)
(Sierra Lavotini, book 1)
Nancy Bartholomew
"Nancy Bartholomew is a major new talent in the mystery field. Her characters crackle to life and her tale moves without a false note and at a pace that should be the envy of many well-known writers in the field who have forgotten that character, story, and pace are all essential. Nancy is terrific."
The Jewel of the North
The Jewel of the North (2001)
(Jack London)
Peter King
"Dazzleing... A tale of high adventure and mystery worthy of Jack London himself."
The Death Merchant
The Death Merchant (2004)
(Diagnosis Murder, book 2)
Lee Goldberg
"A nifty creative take on the tradition of great amateur sleuths with a cast of quirky characters."
