Salvation Station by Kathryn Schleich

Rating: ★★★★

RCR Says: “A powerful, tense buzz builds up between [the main characters] over the course of the story, driving them both towards a conclusion that feels inevitable, yet wholly earned.”

Rinn’s Crossing by Russell Heath

Rating: ★★★★★

RCR Says: “It’s impossible to emerge from Rinn’s Crossing without a healthy respect for both the author’s great talent and the history and landscape of Alaska.”

P.I. Foxx: Case File #7 by Gambol

Rating: ★★★★

Thorne in the Rose City by Justin A. McWhirter

Rating: ★★★★★

RCR Says: “[P]erfect for readers who appreciate stories with a deeply felt sense of place; a pulsating, thrilling plot; and the value of a few uninterrupted hours, because McWhirter’s novel is impossible to put down.”

Keep You Cold: Chilling Tales by A. J. Franks

Rating: ★★★★

RCR Says: “It might seem counterintuitive that a collection of stories, most of which contain murder, suicide, or other forms of sinister fate, could be considered fun, but Franks’ writing carries a frisson of voyeuristic pleasure that is undeniably entertaining—and somehow uplifting—for the reader.”
