Brad Parks recommends

Killer Choice (2018)
Tom Hunt
"With a premise torn from the pages of a psychology textbook and a furious cascade of twists, Killer Choice is a lightning-fast ride that'll keep you guessing until the end. You can go ahead and throw away your bookmark now. This is a one-sit read."

Fiction Can Be Murder (2018)
(Mystery Writer's Mystery, book 1)
Becky Clark
"Fresh, fast, and furiously fun, Fiction Can Be Murderpacks one surprise after the next. Becky Clark writes with wry wit, a keen eye, and no shortage of authority on this particular subject. Charlee Russo is like a lot of authors I know—except most of them only dream of killing their agents."
