Bill Pronzini recommends
You'll Die Next!
You'll Die Next! (1954)
Harry Whittington
"Of all the writers who specialized in soft-cover originals during the paperback boom of the 1950s, Harry Whittington was certainly the 'king'."
Wolf Moon
Wolf Moon (1993)
Ed Gorman
"Ed Gorman is a true original in the Western field...And Wolf Moon is one of his best...Suspenseful, savage, and a whole lot more."
.44
.44 (1997)
H A DeRosso
"H. A. DeRosso is a poet of the Western shadowlands."
Memorial Day
Memorial Day (2004)
(Mick Callahan, book 1)
Harry Shannon
"I enjoyed Memorial Day from first page to last. Mick Callahan is my kind of character - flawed and vulnerable, tanaceous and likeable. His debut is a fast, edgy, twisty, modern noir thriller with an expertly realized desert setting."
