Robert Masello recommends
Pitch Dark (2011)
Steven Sidor
"Pitch Dark is as relentlessly suspenseful as any crime novel you’ve ever read, but at the same time it’s as scary as the best horror stories. Once you’ve met the walking nightmare who calls himself the Pitch – and his devoted henchmen – you will never forget them (try as you might). A harrowing, nonstop flight into the very heart of darkness, Pitch Dark kept me up half the night – and when I did go to bed, I left the lights on."
Cibola (2009)
(Dane Maddock, book 3)
David Wood
"A twisty tale of adventure and intrigue that never lets up and never lets go."
