Ed McBain recommends
thumb
The Blackjack Conspiracy (2005)
(Department Thirty, book 3)
David Kent
"A rollicking read. Page-turning action and riveting suspense are David Kent's stock in trade."
thumb
The Shattered Blue Line (2005)
Patrick A Davis
"More twists and turns than an aerial stunt show... A gripping military thriller."
thumb
Hard Currency (1995)
(Inspector Rostnikov, book 9)
Stuart M Kaminsky
"Kaminski gets Russia right, and Cuba right, but best of all he gets his superb cop Rostnikov altogether right yet another time. Bravo!"
