Gayle Lynds recommends
Never Let Go (2022)
Lori Duffy Foster
"How far would you go, what would you be willing to do, to find your stolen baby? Never Let Go is a compulsively readable tale of old feuds, secret jealousies, and a long-ago murder. Author Lori Duffy Foster takes us on an exciting journey of high stakes and high suspense. Unforgettable!"
Exit Strategy (2022)
(Endings, book 2)
Linda L Richards
"Provocative and powerful . . . Page after page, Richards ratchets up the tension, weaving tradecraft, disguises, and psychology into a riveting tale that peels back the layers of the soul. The prose is often lyrical, the descriptions of the human heart achingly accurate. It will surely stand with the year's best suspense thrillers."
Out of Time (2020)
David Klass
"Rich in insight, powerfully written, Out of Time by David Klass pits two brilliant foes against one another in a riveting chess game of suspense. One is an eco-extremist who bombs and kills, while the other is a young, unorthodox FBI man who goes rogue in a desperate attempt to stop him. From the first paragraph, you'll know you're in the hands of a master storyteller and embarking on an unforgettable adventure."
