The Unwilling

Edgar Award–winning Hart (The Hush) offers another propulsive crime novel that features fully realized, multifaceted characters and a strong sense of place. [See Prepub Alert, 11/25/19.]

The Hush

Hart continues to deepen his palette in this ambitious sequel, which is distinctive enough in story and tone to be read as a stand-alone. Recommended for fans of Dennis Lehane's Shutter Island and Tom Franklin's Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter. [See Prepub Alert, 8/28/17.]

Redemption Road

Hart is a former stockbroker and defense lawyer whose last two novels have won consecutive Edgar Awards (The Last Child and Down River). He is a skilled writer who can plumb the minds of a wide range of characters while building tension with an intricate plot and revealing backstories. The somewhat overly idyllic ending doesn't detract much from readers' wonder at this accomplished achievement. [See Prepub Alert, 11/23/15.]
