William Landay recommends
The Block Party (2023)
Jamie Day
"THE BLOCK PARTY is suspenseful, fast-paced and funny all at once. With an intricate plot and memorable characters, it's a trip to the leafy suburbs where all is not as it seems, told by a master storyteller with wit and style."
Never Let Go (2022)
Lori Duffy Foster
"A dark and suspenseful page-turner about obsession and betrayal, from a veteran storyteller. I couldn't put it down. Highly recommended."
Mystic Wind (2022)
(Jack Marino, book 1)
James Barretto
"Mystic Wind is a stylish, polished, thoroughly enjoyable debut. James Barretto has it all--the authenticity of a courtroom veteran and the craft of a natural storyteller."
