Matthew Quirk recommends
Child Zero (2022)
"CHILD ZERO is a tour de force, beautifully written and hauntingly relevant. Chris Holm has given us a powerful and chilling near-future thriller with a breakneck pace in the best tradition of Michael Crichton's novels and Max Brooks' WORLD WAR Z."
Heaven's a Lie (2021)
"A masterpiece. This is a honed razor of a thriller, a must for fans of No Country for Old Men, that poignantly captures the grit of everyday life in my home state."
Shining City (2017)
(Peter Rena, book 1)
"Shining City couldn't possibly be any more timely. Rosenstiel takes us behind the headlines as only as insider can with this first-rate tale of political intrigue and maneuvering. It's so packed with authentic Washington detail you can almost feel the humidity."
The Prometheus Man (2017)
(Prometheus Man, book 1)
"The Prometheus Man is a phenomenal debut, full of non-stop action and thrills. With this bioengineered twist on Jason Bourne, Reardon offers a dark vision of covert work that may be closer to the present than we think."
