David Swinson recommends
Joe Hustle (2024)
Richard Lange
"As he spends his life cycling through odd jobs and making questionable life choices, veteran Joe Hustle's main credo is 'don't die.' A wonderfully bittersweet and darkly humorous tale, Richard Lange's Joe Hustle is part love story and part recorded memoir of a man whose main goal is to just make it through life alive. Hard to put down and easy to get lost in."
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."
