S J Rozan recommends
Easy as One Two Three
Easy as One Two Three (1999)
(Flap Tucker, book 3)
Phillip DePoy
"Anytime Phillip DePoy wants to bring back Flap Tucker, I'm ready."
Burning Moon
Burning Moon (2003)
(Wil Hardesty, book 5)
Richard Barre
"Barre is one terrific writer. His characters are alive, his settings so well-drawn you'll swear you've been there. And you'll want to read some of his sentences over and over, just for the sounds of the words."
Eye for an Eye
Eye for an Eye (2004)
Joel Ross
"A compelling page-turner."
The Coroner's Lunch
The Coroner's Lunch (2004)
(Dr. Siri Paiboun, book 1)
Colin Cotterill
"The Coroner's Lunch is marvelous. The setting may be unique in Western fiction, and the characters are unique to themselves. Sweet but not sappy, offbeat but not self-conscious about it, this book doesn't so much pull you in as open a door and let you walk happily through. Fans of Alexander McCall Smith's books will love this one."

One Red Bastard (2012)
(Detective Robert Chow)
Ed Lin
"...[my] favorite new writer in years."
