Eric Rickstad recommends
Road of Bones (2022)
Christopher Golden
"Damn. Road of Bones is a relentless nightmare, part terrifying fable, part fever dream, set in the perpetual claustrophobic darkness of a Siberian landscape that's cold enough to crack bones."
Chasing the Boogeyman (2021)
(Boogeyman, book 1)
Richard Chizmar
"A devastating, moving, and devilishly ingenious tale of murder lore, and an entire town’s loss of innocence….Brilliant and haunting."
What Have You Done (2018)
(Adler and Dwyer)
Matthew Farrell
"One hell of a debut thriller. With breakneck pacing and a twisting plot, What Have You Done will keep you guessing until its stunning end."
