Ryan Steck recommends
Perfect Shot (2023)
(Special Agent Alexandra Martel, book 1)
Steve Urszenyi
"Perfect Shot is my pick for the best debut of 2023. Steve Urszenyi is wildly talented, and his kickass new hero, Alex Martel, is sure to be a hit with fans of Mark Greaney, Jack Carr, and Stephen Hunter."
The Rising Order (2023)
Claire Isenthal
"Claire Isenthal explodes onto the literary scene with a riveting new thriller that mixes unforgettable characters with a chilling, masterfully crafted plot that, at times, almost feels a little too real for comfort. The Rising Order is the debut novel of the year. Trust me, do not miss this book!"
Narrator (2022)
Landon Beach
"In my career, having reviewed over 1,200 novels, I can honestly say . . . I have never read anything quite like this. Think Misery meets Gone Girl. Landon Beach delivers a special, unforgettable, jaw-dropping reading experience that readers won't soon forget. Narrator is a masterpiece."
The Last of the Seven (2022)
Steven Hartov
"A gripping look back at WWII through the eyes of a war-torn unit of European Jews who are sent behind enemy lines to strike back at Hitler, Steven Hartov's The Last of Seven, opens fast and never lets up for a second. Impossible to put down, fans of Robert Harris and Andrew Gross will want to get their hands on this one the second it hits bookstores."
