Michael Sears recommends

Warning Light (2014)
(Jake Keller Thiller, book 1)
David Ricciardi
"Warning Light is best read in one sitting, like a ride on the Tilt-a-Whirl. Imagine an Adam Hall or Robert Ludlum played out over an all-too plausible Middle East scenario. Plenty of twists, turns, and action on land, sea, and air with a very scary underlying premise. Mr. Ricciardi knows his subject and conveys his story with non-stop suspense. The best spy thriller I have read this year."

Burning Heat (2016)
(Brack Pelton, book 2)
David Burnsworth
"Burnsworth brings to the lowcountry the same unflinching eye that James Lee Burke turns to the bayou."

The Deep Dark Descending (2017)
(Max Rupert, book 4)
Allen Eskens
"Another great, dark, and brooding page-turner from Allen Eskens, with a tragic protagonist who will break your heart. Eskens's characters will haunt you long after you finish reading."

The Missing American (2020)
(Emma Djan, book 1)
Kwei Quartey
"Mr. Quartey combines African internet scams, a menacing juju priest and political corruption with a cast of unforgettable characters, led by the formidable young Emma, who could easily become my favorite new detective. The sounds, sights, troubles and aspirations of modern-day Ghana are revealed with an unsparing eye and an understanding heart."
