Andrew Pyper recommends
Before I Wake (2006)
Robert J Wiersema
"Before I Wake provocatively dances along the lines between faith and science, life and death."
Back to the Coast (2009)
Saskia Noort
"Saskia Noort is a mystery writer of the heart as much as of the mind, a balance that marks her wirk with a flesh-and-blood humanity."
The Good and the Ghastly (2011)
James Boice
"Bloody and bloody funny, James Boice’s at once coolly objective and deeply human writing does the dystopian novel like no other. The Good and the Ghastly reads like Cormac McCarthy executing a Kurt Vonnegut premise through a Joan Didion filter. An original, in other words."
Midnight in Havana (2012)
(Inspector Ramirez, book 1)
Peggy Blair
Poison Shy (2012)
Stacey Madden
"A literary Blue Velvet for the millennial age - gripping neo-noir."
Every House Is Haunted (2012)
Ian Rogers
"Ian Rogers' stories are old-fashioned in the very best sense: classic chillers in the spirit of Shirley Jackson and Richard Matheson. Every House Is Haunted is full of well-crafted, satisfying twists, a fine companion for any reader of literate horror."
Zagreb Cowboy (2015)
(Marko Della Torre, book 1)
Alen Mattich
"Zagreb Cowboy is invigorating Euro noir, dark and energizing as good coffee."
Still Mine (2016)
(Clare and Malcolm, book 1)
Amy Stuart
"Twisty and swift, Amy Stuart’s Still Mine is a darkly entertaining mystery machine. But what will really surprise you is the emotional foundation on which it has been built."
The Hatching (2016)
(Hatching, book 1)
Ezekiel Boone
"The Hatching is old school global plague horror of the freakiest sort. A deft and nasty thriller."
Our Little Secret (2017)
Roz Nay
"Roz Nay shows how the past is never truly past, and can be darker than we guess, especially when it comes to first loves. A most promising debut."
Yesterday (2017)
(Hans Richardson, book 1)
Felicia Yap
"At once a high-concept thriller with a sci-fi premise and an old-school noir, Felicia Yap's Yesterday is a tasty, satisfyingly grounded blend. A rich, rewarding debut that shows the ways that memory can betray us as painfully--and perhaps as inevitably--as those we love."
Find You in the Dark (2018)
Nathan Ripley
"Find You in the Dark is an unsettling exploration of obsession you won't soon forget. Nathan Ripley delivers a first novel that fans of Patricia Highsmith psychological thrills and Thomas Harris cat-and-mouse suspense will devour. I certainly did."
Seven Days (2019)
Patrick Senécal
"A visceral thriller propelled by the seething, heartbreaking passion of revenge. Senécal holds nothing back, which is what makes reading him feel so dangerous."
Death in the Family (2020)
(Shana Merchant, book 1)
Tessa Wegert
"Tessa Wegert's Death in the Family assembles delicious ingredients--isolation, a ticking clock, family secrets--and creates a mystery at once familiar and distinctly her own. Bloody good comfort food."
