David Swinson recommends
All Is Not Forgiven (2023)
Joe Kenda
"Joe Kenda's All Is Not Forgiven is a wonderful, authentic read, told as through a casual conversation with a friend. It is an energizing and entertaining trip into Sin City's seedy underbelly viewed through both sides of the law. Pick this one up."
Graveyard Fields (2021)
(Graveyard Field Mystery, book 1)
Steven Tingle
"Steven Tingle’s debut novel, Graveyard Fields, is a noteworthy, not to be missed summer read. His flawed, but still likeable protagonist, Davis Reed, narrates and moves the story with wit and pedal to the metal."
Anonymous (2020)
(Madison Kelly Mystery, book 1)
Elizabeth Breck
"Elizabeth Breck’s praiseworthy debut novel is unrelenting, like her dogged, smart protagonist, Madison Kelly."
Silence on Cold River (2020)
Casey Dunn
"Casey Dunn’s Silence on Cold River is a strikingly composed novel. Dunn did something that is often hard to accomplish, by successfully alternating chapters with different points of view. Everything comes together through the wonderful characterizations to tell a thrilling story."
Fatal Legislation (2018)
(Karina Cardinal Mystery, book 2)
Ellen Butler
"Ellen Butler knows the inner-workings of a Capital Hill polities, and that is what makes Fatal Legislation an absolute winner."
A Walk in the Fire (2018)
(Judah Cannon, book 2)
Steph Post
"Steph Post’s WALK IN THE FIRE is a wonderful accomplishment, teeming with a refreshingly unexpected cast of characters, and an original story in an unlikely setting. It’s a wild ride through the dark side of the sunshine state."
