T Jefferson Parker recommends
thumb
Beyond All Doubt (2024)
Hilton Reed
"Beyond All Doubt is a taut, smart, and emotionally rich thriller. Reed has a sharp eye for character and a screenwriter's feel for action. This tale is sleek as a mink and fast as a bullet."
thumb
Valley of Refuge (2023)
John Teschner
"A sleek, stylish thriller about the high cost of living in paradise. Keen-eyed, heartfelt, and hard to put down."
thumb
The Last Songbird (2023)
(Pacific Coast Highway Mystery, book 1)
Daniel Weizmann
"The Last Songbird is rock noir at its best. It sneaks up on you like a hook line, and when it's over, you can't get it out of your head. Hapless hero/songwriter Addy Zantz is witty, gritty and determined to solve the murder of his idol and muse, the legendary rock star, Annie Linden. Daniel Weizmann's L.A. is half Warren Zevon and half Raymond Chandler. Bravo."
