Unusual Suspects

A Golf Digest Helped Free An Innocent Man From Prison

Hello mystery fans! Today I have the biggest book hangover thanks to inhaling Jane Harper’s upcoming The Lost Man. Give it all the stars! I have to say, top crime writers right now that are killing it are Harper, Attica Locke, Megan Abbott, and Tana French. Hope you’re sliding into the weekend with a good book in your hand!
