Calico (2023)
Lee Goldberg
"One of the most compelling novels I've read in a long time. Great characters, a vivid historical setting, and intriguing plot twists had me staying up late to finish it. Goldberg always delivers the goods, and Calico is something special."
thumb
Five Decembers (2021)
James Kestrel
"What a wonderful book Five Decembers is! One of the best hardboiled mysteries I've read in years, and an epic war story and love story to boot."

Bear Haskell: U.S. Deputy Marshal (2018)
(Bear Haskell)
