We don’t just read comics and comix here. We like books sans pix too!
Want a quick, taut thriller that’s been making the rounds? Check out the under-the-radar “Silent City,” by Alex Segura, about an on-the-edge journalist (I know a lot of those!) drawn into the seamy underbelly of Miami. Segura has a way with characterization and exhibits serious promise in his debut novel. First part of a likely trilogy, so get in now. (Oh, and Alex is the twisted mind who brought you Archie Meets Kiss!) Codorus Press, softcover, $14.95 cover price.
