Jon Land recommends
Lights Out (2023)
(Kate Green, book 1)
Elise Hart Kipness
"Lights Out is a seminal triumph in mystery writing, as original as it is polished. Elise Hart Kipness's sterling debut takes us inside the world of professional sports on the one hand and a female reporter cracking that particular glass ceiling on the other. A crime thriller of rare depth and societal implications, Lights Out shoots straight and hits the bull's-eye dead center."
Hard Country (2023)
(Tucker Snow Thrillers, book 1)
Reavis Z Wortham
"Hard Country is easy to love, a beautifully crafted and fully realized thriller of rare depth and pathos. The debut entry in Reavis Wortham's new series is structured along classic lines reminiscent of the best from Ace Atkins, Don Winslow, and even James Lee Burke. This is thriller writing of the highest order that grabs hold from the very first line and doesn't let go until the last. As timely as it is terrific!"
War of Dragons (2023)
(Wingman, book 22)
Mack Maloney
"The best high-action thriller writer out there today, bar none."
The Blood of Patriots and Traitors (2023)
(Max Geller, book 2)
James A Scott
"Relevant, riveting, and relentness."
Mystic Wind (2022)
(Jack Marino, book 1)
James Barretto
"Mystic Wind is a hurricane force legal thriller that blows away the best of John Grisham and Scott Turow. James Barretto's sizzling tale of a murder case that's much more than it seems doubles as a beautifully honed character study of a hero forced to confront his own past. Reminiscent of both Michael Connelly's Mickey Haller novels and Barry Reed's classic The Verdict, this is an absolute must read."
Landslide (2022)
(Mason Hackett, book 1)
Adam Sikes
"Landslide is a seismic quake of an international, high-stakes thriller in the grand tradition of Daniel Silva, Brad Thor, and Brad Taylor. Adam Sikes has penned a seminal effort that's bracingly effective in its portrayal of current geopolitical dynamics through the eyes of former Marine, and current expatriate, Mason Hackett. A terrific tapestry of a tale with the kind of stitching that would make the likes of Alistair MacLean and Frederick Forsyth take notice."
