A New York Times Notable Books of 2020 “I loved Blacktop Wasteland...[A] fast-paced, bareknuckle thriller.” -Stephen King "One of the year's strongest novels. Cosby invests Blacktop Wasteland with emotion while delivering a solid thriller." -Sun Sentinel “A fast-paced, fresh take on noir that tears through the underbelly of Virginia.” -New York Times A husband, a father, a son, a business owner...And the best getaway driver east of the Mississippi. Beauregard “Bug” Montage is an honest mechanic, a loving husband, and a hard-working dad. Bug knows there’s no future in the man he used to be: known from the hills of North Carolina to the beaches of Florida as the best wheelman on the East Coast. He thought he'd left all that behind him, but as his carefully built new life begins to crumble, he finds himself drawn inexorably back into a world of blood and bullets. When a smooth-talking former associate comes calling with a can't-miss jewelry store heist, Bug feels he has no choice but to get back in the driver's seat. And Bug is at his best where the scent of gasoline mixes with the smell of fear. Haunted by the ghost of who he used to be and the father who disappeared when he needed him most, Bug must find a way to navigate this blacktop wasteland...or die trying. Like Ocean’s Eleven meets Drive, with a Southern noir twist, S. A. Cosby’s Blacktop Wasteland is a searing, operatic story of a man pushed to his limits by poverty, race, and his own former life of crime.

A BLACK FATHER. A WHITE FATHER. TWO MURDERED SONS. A QUEST FOR VENGEANCE. Ike Randolph has been out of jail for 15 years, with not so much as a speeding ticket since. But a black man with cops at the door knows to be afraid. The last thing he expects to hear is that his son Isiah has been murdered, along with Isiah's white husband, Derek. Ike had never fully accepted his son but is devastated by his loss. Derek's father Buddy Lee was almost as ashamed of Derek for being gay as Derek was ashamed that his father was a criminal. Buddy Lee still has contacts in the underworld, though...and he wants to know who killed his boy. Ike and Buddy Lee, two ex-cons with little in common other than a criminal past and a love for their dead sons, band together in a desperate desire for retribution. In their quest to do better for their children in death than they did in life, they must confront their prejudices about their sons - and each other - as they rain down vengeance upon those who hurt them. A provocative revenge thriller and an achingly tender story of redemption, this novel is a ferocious portrait of grief; for those loved and lost, and for mistakes than can never truly be undone. Praise for S. A. Cosby: 'Sensationally good' LEE CHILD 'I loved BLACKTOP WASTELAND' STEPHEN KING 'Pitch-perfect' DENNIS LEHANE 'Stunning. Can't remember the last time I read such a powerful crime novel' MARK BILLINGHAM 'Every once in a while a writer comes along with an incredible voice...add S. A. Cosby to that list.' STEVE CAVANAGH 'A superb character study wrapped up in a high-octane heist novel' Guardian 'Fantastic' Sunday Times 'Spectacular.' Daily Mail 'A delicious slice of country gothic wrapped in smart, hard, contemporary neo noir.' ADRIAN McKINTY

Kovac and Liska take on multiple twisted cases as #1 New York Times bestselling author Tami Hoag explores a murder from the past, a murder from the present, and a life that was never meant to be. As the bitter weather of late fall descends on Minneapolis, Detective Nikki Liska is restless, already bored with her new assignment to the cold case squad. She misses the rush of pulling an all-nighter and the sense of urgency of hunting a killer on the loose. Most of all she misses her old partner, Sam Kovac. Kovac is having an even harder time adjusting to Liska’s absence but is distracted from his troubles by an especially brutal double homicide: a prominent university professor and his wife, bludgeoned and hacked to death in their home with a ceremonial Japanese samurai sword. Liska’s case—the unsolved murder of a decorated sex crimes detective—is less of a distraction: Twenty-five years later, there is little hope for finding the killer who got away. Meanwhile, Minneapolis resident Evi Burke has a life she only dreamed of as a kid in and out of foster care: a beautiful home, a loving family, a fulfilling job. But a danger from her past is stalking her idyllic present, bent on destroying the perfect life she was never meant to have. As the trails of two crimes a quarter of a century apart twist and cross, Kovac and Liska race to find answers before a killer strikes again.

The latest Mystery Writers of America story collection, featuring terrifying tales of encounters with strangers from some of the top bestsellers and award winners in crime fiction It’s been said that all great literature boils down to one of two stories—a man takes a journey, or a stranger comes to town. While mystery writers have been successfully using both approaches for generations, there’s something undeniably alluring in the nature of a stranger: the uninvited guest, the unacquainted neighbor, the fish out of water. No matter how or where they appear, strangers are walking mysteries, complete unknowns in once-familiar territories who disrupt our lives with unease and wonder. In the newest collection of stories by the Mystery Writers of America, each author weaves a fresh tale surrounding the eerie feeling that comes when a stranger enters our midst, featuring stories by prolific mystery writers such as Michael Connelly, Dean Koontz and Joe Hill.

Introducing Moses Kincaid, an ornery, brazen, and possibly-punch-drunk retired Army MP turned bounty hunter who must track down a skip trace accused of vehicular homicide into rural, Lawson, Oklahoma—circa summer 1995. Follow Moe down Sangre Road as he—in no particular order—goes up against prison peckerwoods on the run, outlaw bikers who do all they can to beat him to death, pro midget wrestlers inside The Outhouse, holes up in no-tell motels and greasy-spoon diners, shacks up with a waitress, and gets gifted mouthful after mouthful of heavy-duty pain pills for the bumps and bruises he earns along the way. That's not to forget the drug-smuggling Army cooks, and the fire fight he got into with zombies once upon a time. Car crashes, wisecracks, and suckerpunches galore! Praise for SANGRE ROAD: “David Tromblay has created a violent and wistful elegy to small-town America that cuts as sharp as an ice pick and goes twice as deep.” —S.A. Cosby, author of Blacktop Wasteland “Tromblay is a natural storyteller with an ear tuned for dialogue and an imagination that will keep readers wide-eyed and guessing, slack-jawed, and entertained. A manhunt shouldn’t be this fun.” —David Joy, author of When These Mountains Burn “Sangre Road is spectacular! From slow-burn to inferno in character development, story and inventive twists and unexpected turns.” —Stephen Mack Jones, author of August Snow and Dead of Winter “Quick-witted, fast-paced, unpredictable. All roads converge to make Sangre Road a raucous, wide-open, crime-riddled joy ride.” —Michael Farris Smith, author of Nick and Blackwood “Sangre Road is a wild trip through a surreal Clinton-era Oklahoma, paced like a small-town stock car race without any rules. And funny as hell to boot.” —Scott Phillips, author of That Left Turn at Albuquerque and The Ice Harvest “Sangre Road is a gritty, funny crime caper that beats with a big heart. It’s one part Coen Brothers, one part Elmore Leonard, but also a beast all its own. It takes you to unexpected places and leaves you thinking.” —Nick Kolakowski, author of Boise Longpig Hunting Club and A Brutal Bunch of Heartbroken Saps “Tromblay’s writing is easy to fall into because he is clear and funny, and just when you’re relaxed, he’ll hit you with a line that makes you go ‘hell yeah.’ Sangre Road is alive with the weirdo types of characters you’d see on a given day in Oklahoma, and their color and humanity shine through. Truly a pleasure to read crime fiction this good.” —J. David Osborne, author of Black Gum “A rough-and-tumble journey through a landscape as colorful as its inhabitants.” —Steph Post, author of Lightwood “David Tromblay has done that thing we don’t get enough of; a remarkably unlikeable character dropped into a book that’ll make you turn the pages regardless. Tone, smell, dust, and heat all live here on Sangre Road, and the chop-along dialogue will speed you right down to the end of the trail. Buckle up!” —Theo Van Alst Jr, author of Sacred Smokes “David Tromblay’s Sangre Road pulsates with intensity. It’s scrappy, sharp-edged, wild, and funny. One hell of a memorable ride.” —William Boyle, author of City of Margins and Gravesend “A thrill ride through Oklahoma alongside the stubborn, punch-drunk, smart-mouthed bounty hunter Moses Kincaid, complete with bikers, prison peckerwoods, zombies, pro midget wrestlers, no-tell motels, greasy-spoon diners, and enough mouthfuls of heavy-duty pain pills to keep you asking, ‘what’s next?’” —Penni Jones, author of Suicide Souls and On the Bricks

The long-awaited return of Colt Harper, a lawman in the tradition of Jesse Stone and Walt Longmire. Sheriff Colt Harper believes he's colorblind in his enforcement of the law. But is he? When a black man is murdered, it ignites age-old anger in the African-American community over the injustices they've endured and forces Harper to confront his own personal demons. Harper's single-minded pursuit of justice for the dead man thrusts him between two volatile groups -- furious blacks who don't know if they can trust him and racist whites who want to use the controversy to spark a bloody race war. "Old Anger has some sweet echoes of the past while being something modern at the same time. Pacing is outstanding and the story is engaging. It has a western rash under it's skin. Recommended." Joe R. Lansdale" "Phillip Thompson combines the visceral verbal skills of Craig Johnson with the white knuckle tension of Stephen Hunter. Old Anger will leave you soaked in sweat and gasping for air" S.A. Cosby author of Blacktop Wasteland ."Old Anger is a modern Southern novel in the best sense-exploring issues of race, privilege, and generational mistrust with candor and grace. It's also a fiercely engaging mystery. Thompson's lawman, Colt Harper, is a man of honor in a world that could use more of 'em. Consider me a fan." Chris Holm, Anthony Award winning author of The Killing Kind "In Thompson's well-wrought third crime novel featuring Mississippi sheriff Colt Harper. Thoughtful prose is matched by solid characterizations. Thompson delivers a timely tale of racial violence." Publishers Weekly
