Penance by Dan O'Shea, May 2013

Penance is part detective novel and part thriller – like Michael Connelly crossed with Robert Ludlum (think Harry Bosch with extra fire power and added international intrigue). Penance is also aided by being a novel of ideas with strong themes – past sins returning; the importance of redemption – which prevent it from turning into a shoot-em-up.” — Killing Time.

Wounded Prey by Sean Lynch, June 2013A visceral and heart-wrenching cross between No Country For Old Men and Silence of the Lambs, this is an exhilarating debut from a thrillingly authentic author.

Wounded Prey is a non-stop thrill ride of a book. Unrelenting, brutal, scary, and at times skin-crawling in its depiction of atrocious crimes. And yet it is also funny, warming and believable.” Tony Healey
