Gary Phillips recommends
thumb
Smoke Kings (2024)
Jahmal Mayfield
"To say Smoke Kings is insightful and topical are understatements. To say this searing novel could have been written fifty years ago or twenty years from now says a lot about our country and the deft storytelling of Jahmal Mayfield."
thumb
Under Color of Law (2021)
(Trevor Finnegan, book 1)
Aaron Philip Clark
"Rugged, real, and timely, the authenticity crackles on each page in this unputdownable novel from Mr. Clark."
thumb
The Shadow People (2021)
Joe Clifford
"Joe Clifford invites you to take a gander at the distorted images reflected in the funhouse mirror, and witness what happens when those images take three-dimensional form."
