Chris Pavone recommends
Ilium (2024)
Lea Carpenter
"Here is the beating heart of a great espionage novel: devious manipulations and moral ambiguity within intimate relationships, with life-or-death consequences. Ilium delivers it all, plus glamorous international settings, complex characters, and sparkling prose. A tremendously satisfying read."
The Helsinki Affair (2023)
Anna Pitoniak
"The Helsinki Affair has everything: high stakes, mortal peril, moral ambiguity, torn allegiances, tradecraft and subterfuge, love and sex and loneliness, and every type of risk. I can't remember the last time I read such an enjoyable spy novel."
West Heart Kill (2023)
Dann McDorman
"A thoroughly original suspense novel that hops across elements of the genre - a diabolical locked-room mystery interspersed with a fascinating primer on the form - while always being tremendous fun to read."
