Jason Starr recommends
Deadfolk (2004)
(Mangel, book 1)
Charlie Williams
"Demented, hilarious, and near impossible to put down."
The Concrete Maze (2007)
Steven Torres
"Tough, fast-paced, gripping and hard-boiled to the bone. I simply loved it."
Eat the Dark (2007)
Joe Schreiber
"Reminiscent of Stephen King's early work, Eat the Dark is a terrifying, claustrophobic, bone-chilling, unputdownable masterpiece of suspense fiction. Human monster Frank Snow is a wonderful creation."
Hell On Church Street (2011)
Jake Hinkson
"...an instant classic, as relentlessly twisted as anything by Jim Thompson or Charles Willeford."
