Caroline Woods, The Lunar Housewife

“Sly and delightful . . . the book is the equivalent of a flinty, modern dame holding her own in a room full of condescending men.”
–The New York Times Book Review

Matt Bondurant, Oleander City

“Bondurant weaves together fascinating backstories with vivid descriptions of the storm and its aftermath, showing that it takes many types of courage to fight for what is right.”

Nina Sadowsky, Privacy

“Screenwriter and filmmaker Sadowsky gives readers a rapidly paced, suspenseful thriller that makes the most of such hot-button issues as privacy, professional ethics, media malfeasance, and race relations. This one seems bound for the big screen.”

Joey Hartstone, The Local

The Recruit is as smart and stylish as it is compelling. The plot speeds like a race car on a breathtaking course filled with twists and turns, and the novel brims with rich psychological insights into the many fully drawn characters.”

Paraic O’Donnell, The Maker of Swans
(Tin House)

“A darkly gorgeous novel of intrigue and secrets… The Maker of Swans asserts the alchemical power of language. O’Donnell’s prose is lyric, almost Nabokovian in its ability to encompass the cerebral and the sensual at once.”
–New York Times

Adam White, The Midcoast

“I tore through the saga of the Thatch family in two nights. The Midcoast is a reader’s dream—tense, ominous, and deeply wise.”
–David Benioff

Erin Kimmerle, We Carry Their Bones
(William Morrow)

“With We Carry Their Bones, Erin Kimmerle continues to unearth the true story of the Dozier School, a tale more frightening than any fiction. In a corrupt world, her unflinching revelations are as close as we’ll come to justice.”
–Colson Whitehead

Leslie McFarlane, Ghost of the Hardy Boys
(David R. Godine)

“Ghost of the Hardy Boys is an elegant book, full of charm and pathos and whimsy. The writing is restrained, the characterizations deep and rich, the humor nuanced.”
–Washington Post

Fiona Barton, Local Gone Missing

“Barton skillfully pivots here from the globe-trotting reporting that drives her Kate Waters series toward domestic crime awash in village secrets. Readers drawn in by Elise’s hawk-eyed detecting and hard-edged vulnerability won’t see the final twist coming.”

Joshua Moehling, And There He Kept Her
(Poisoned Pen Press)

“Readers will find this book especially well written and polished…And There He Kept Her exploits the rich terrain of a small town where an overactive grapevine thrives and seemingly everyone conceals a secret.”
–Mystery Scene Magazine
