Ivy Pochoda recommends
Distant Sons (2023)
Tim Johnston
"Tim Johnston has once again raised the bar for the literary thriller. Distant Sons is elegant and edgy, refined and complex. It excavates the truth from the darkest recesses of the past and shines a light towards the possibility of a redemptive future."
The Hurricane Blonde (2023)
Halley Sutton
"The Hurricane Blonde is a splashy thrill ride through the dark side of Hollywood. Sutton has delivered a glitzy noir and a gripping crime story. Empowering, engaging, and a worthy addition to the Los Angeles canon."
Night Will Find You (2023)
Julia Heaberlin
"Night Will Find You is a rare thriller that seamlessly straddles the mystic and the scientific. Compelling and compassionate, Heaberlin's novel has one foot firmly planted in our world of misinformation and the other reaching for the inexplicable. I loved it."
You Know Her (2023)
Meagan Jennett
"With a naturalist's soul and a killer's heart, Meagan Jennett has delivered a debut that seethes with graceful rage. Angry, smart, propulsive-You Know Her is an unforgettable crime novel."
Jollof Rice and Other Revolutions (2022)
Omolola Ijeoma Ogunyemi
"In her debut collection of interwoven stories, Lola Ogunyemi has reinvented the classic narrative of diaspora. She reaches into Nigeria's past and far into the speculative future, travels from Africa, to Poland, to America, drawing together an unforgettable group of characters whose shared struggles and triumphs are delivered with profound feeling, inspired insight, and careful humor. Each story is unique in tone and structure, but together they crystallize into a remarkable and important vision of heritage, culture, and an indelible sense of home."
We Lie Here (2022)
Rachel Howzell Hall
"We Lie Here is definitive proof that it's impossible to be disappointed by Rachel Howzell Hall, who just gets better and better with each book. She has tools and tricks to spare as she pulls you to the edge of your seat with her razor-sharp plotting and keen eye for the darker side of human behavior that's too easily obscured by the California sunshine."
