I got Dischafer as a recommendation from a friend. I am shelving this as one of the best reads this year.

Dischafer starts with a reporter with an ambiguous agenda. It slowly develops into a thrilling package as pages turn. I loved the dark and gritty narrative tone and how it laid out the world. It is hard to believe this is a debut novel. This is well executed.

I recommend this book to everyone who loves dark thrillers.
