The Devil’s Due
Kirkus Reviews : The Devil's Due (November 01, 2019)

Loose-limbed, prodigiously inventive, plotted with infernal logic, and riotously implausible from beginning to end.


Left
Quill and Quire : Left (August 31, 2018)

Bischoff does succeed in building suspense and keeping it going.


The Butterfly Conspiracy

I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book and to watch their relationship grow—not to mention the cryptid name drop that has me chomping at the bit. I’m looking forward to the second book in the series.


The Girl From Blind River

The author’s authoritative, powerful prose and knack for dialogue—especially when dealing with emotions and violence—are more indicative of a seasoned veteran rather than a debut author. This is great news because it means there is much more to come from Massey, and if The Girl from Blind River is any indication, it will be great.


Final Resting Place

A relatively short book given the scope of its events, Final Resting Place is packed from prologue to closing historical note with grand characters and exciting action. Putnam doesn’t waste a single page as Speed and Lincoln juggle the personal, the professional, and the painful in their quest for truth and justice.


The Red Hand of Fury

Morris’ third is taut and twisty with a psychological intensity that’s rare and compelling.


Mothers and Other Strangers

A reader who knows what to expect will take pleasure in this book.


Burnout

Burnout examines a timely subject, but it’s the depiction of relationships, all with plenty of nuance, that is the main reason to pick up this book.


The Temptation of Forgiveness

Once again, Leon gives us that rare novel that will satisfy fans of pure mysteries while entrancing those who are interested in personalities, cultures, and the complexities of life and living.


The Woman in the Window: The most exciting debut thriller of the year

What this is is an intelligent, carefully constructed novel of psychological suspense that focuses on a single character whose moods, secrets and fears drive the plot.


Vindication

Despite imbecilic bad-guy characters that a novice paralegal could trounce, Matt’s judicature acumen draws from classic police procedurals and forensics investigation lore.


A Murder for the Books

Gilbert’s series kickoff offers an intricate mystery, an interesting look at the past, and a clever and determined heroine.


Colorado Boulevard

A smart, noirish mystery loaded with clever dialogue and vivid characters. The Crush series is as good as it gets.


Blood Truth

Each of these books raises the hard-boiled thriller bar, but this multifaceted Chandler-like installment rockets that measure to Himalaya heights.
