"Carved from the tradition of top-flight political thrillers, Chain of Command is a sizzling potboiler of a tale."

Ultimate Betrayal (2014)
Joseph Badal

Cross Purposes (2014)

(John Rexford, book 1)
Kevin Hurley

thumb
False Flag (2017)
John Altman

thumb
The Last Girl (2017)
(Dexter Vega Mystery, book 1)
Danny López
"The Last Girl features a masterful mix of murder; mystery, and mayhem as hot as its tropical settings. Danny Lopez's turn at postmodern noir evokes the very best from the likes of Elmore Leonard, Sandra Brown, and Don Winslow. This is crime writing at its level best, a twisty, turny tale that's smart, sexy, and sensational."
thumb
Into a Dark Frontier (2017)
John Mangan
"Into a Dark Frontier is an international thriller of rare depth and complexity that would make the likes of John Le Carre and Robert Ludlum proud. But John Mangan goes both of them one better by injecting into the mix a loner hero with a gunfighter mentality fit for taming continents as well as frontiers, with Africa subbing for the Old West. A vision splendidly realized and tale wondrously executed."
thumb
Long Walk Home (2017)
Don Helin
"Long Walk Home is blistering thriller, coolly reminiscent of Nelson DeMille at his best."
thumb
A-List (2017)
(Jake Longly, book 2)
D P Lyle
"One part Carl Hiaasen mixed with two parts Elmore Leonard and garnished with Robert Parker at his best. [The] narrative is peppered with snappy, staccato prose that pops clean off the page, making this a series and author you don't want to miss."
thumb
The Children's Game (2018)
Max Karpov
"The Children's Game is a cerebral, ground-breaking, all-too-plausible thriller made all the more prescient by the current state of U.S.-Russian relations. Max Karpov peers into his crystal ball in crafting a tale that's so cutting edge, flipping the pages may result in bloodied fingertips. Karpov proves himself every bit the equal of Daniel Silva in crafting the best book of its kind since Nelson DeMille's classic The Charm School. Searingly sumptuous storytelling sure to please fans of Brad Thor, Brad Taylor and the late, great Vince Flynn."
thumb
Game of the Gods (2018)
Jay Schiffman
"The dystopian novel is alive and well in the blisteringly effective Game of the Gods. Jay Schiffman breathes life into a moribund genre and ends up crafting a sly, shrewd and stunning take on a darkly depraved future that is every bit the equal of The Hunger Games, The Maze Runner, and the Divergent series. Schiffman's striking vision serves up a cloud-riddled tomorrow featuring just enough silver linings to provide hope to an otherwise bleak landscape. A must read for fans of classics like Judge Dredd and Doc Savage."
thumb
Maze Master (2018)
Kathleen O'Neal Gear
"MAZE MASTER is a masterpiece of a bio-thriller that seamlessly melds science and superstition into a tale as relentless as it is rivetting. ...This is speculative storytelling at its best, weaving cutting edge genetics into a puzzle that must be solved if mankind is to survive..."
