Riot Recommendation: What Are Your Favorite Historical Thrillers?

This Riot Recommendation asking for your favorite historical thrillers is sponsored by David Baldacci’s One Good Deed.

One Good Deed cover imageIt’s 1949. When war veteran Aloysius Archer is released from Carderock Prison, he’s sent to Poca City on parole with a short list of do’s and a much longer list of don’ts. But the small town quickly proves more complicated and dangerous than Archer’s years serving in the war or his time in jail. When a murder takes place right under Archer’s nose, police suspicions rise against the ex-convict, and Archer realizes that the crime could send him right back to prison . . . if he doesn’t use every skill in his arsenal to track down the real killer.
