The Paradox Hotel (2022)
Rob Hart
"Twisty, twisted, relentlessly entertaining, and like all Hart's work, layered with larger ideas . . . You don't read it so much as devour it."
thumb
Interference (2020)
Brad Parks
"Utterly absorbing, relentlessly paced, and cunningly assembled. Brad Parks is the sort of master craftsman who makes everything look easy. I hate him a little bit."
thumb
Unspeakable Things (2020)
Jess Lourey
"A noose of a novel that tightens by inches. The squirming tension comes from every direction—including the ones that are supposed to be safe. I felt complicit as I read, as if at any moment I stopped I would be abandoning Cassie, alone, in the dark, straining to listen and fearing to hear."
