Not of This World

A blast for urban-fantasy readers looking for a broken fourth wall riddled with dry-witted commentary, evil getting its just deserts, and the good walking away to fight the good fight.

Haunted by the Past

The 11th book in Green’s fantastical mystery series (following Buried Memories) pokes fun at the genre, with fun and plenty of cathartic resolution for readers who like rueful chuckles with their chills. Recommended for those who like antiheroes with more than a bit of snark.

What Song the Sirens Sang

The latest in Green’s “Gideon Sable” series (after A Matter of Death and Life) features a crew of criminals with hearts of gold and one of the snarkiest antiheroes to ever front an urban fantasy series, turning the murder and mayhem up to 11 while telling a story where disaster is always just on the other side of the door. Readers will be fondly reminded of the TV series Leverage, where the good guys are bad guys.

Murder in the Dark

Green follows up Into the Thinnest of Air with this latest blend of sf, mystery, and horror that features the author's trademark black humor and ratchets up the suspense with a compelling story line reminiscent of Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None.

Into the Thinnest of Air

Green follows Death Shall Come with another unconventional, creepy mystery that combines elements of horror and a country house mystery. This darkly humorous tale plays on fears of the dark, the supernatural, and monsters. Fans of Green's "Nightside" and "Secret History" series are most likely to appreciate the latest adventures of the unusual sleuth with the wry viewpoint.
