William Lashner recommends
Dying to Be Famous (2006)
(Jim McNamara, book 3)
David Hiltbrand
"David Hiltbrand rocks!"
The Drifter (2016)
(Peter Ash, book 1)
Nick Petrie
"Nick Petrie's The Drifter has one of the most thrilling openings I've ever read, involving a dank crawlspace, the nastiest, smelliest dog in creation, and a former Marine lieutenant still suffering from the trauma of his war. It can't get better than this, I figured, but it does. Petrie's novel keeps accelerating even as it burrows ever deeper into the dark heart of the new American dream. It is a sterling debut. And yes, the dog is a star."
