Attica Locke recommends
The Mayor of Maxwell Street (2024)
Avery Cunningham
"Beautifully written, The Mayor of Maxwell Street is a page-turning thrill ride through 1920s Chicago."
Everybody Knows (2023)
Jordan Harper
"Good lord, this book is fantastic. EVERYBODY KNOWS is one of the best LA noir novels I've ever read. The writing is astonishingly good. It's a wild, honest, sharp, and suspenseful ride, full of wry observations about the nature of power and the cost of being good in a bad, bad world."
The Darkness of Others (2022)
Cate Holahan
"The Darkness of Others is a deftly plotted, smartly observed page-turner that manages to thrill at the same time as capture the emotional chaos of the early pandemic years."
