2018 Reissues Roundup: Some of the Best Books to Hit the Page (Again)

I have a review article up and running at Mystery Scene’s website. As the title suggests it’s a look at older novels that were reprinted in 2018. I look at the first two Hardman novels by Ralph Dennis—Atlanta Deathwatch and The Charleston Knife is Back in TownThe Red Scarf by Gil Brewer, The Murder of My Aunt by Richard Hull, Seven Dead by J. Jefferson Farjeon, Frenzy of Evil by Henry Kane, and a few others.
If you choose to read it, let me know what you think. And even better, what were some of your favorite books that hit print in 2018 again?

Good article in Mystery Scene, and many of the titles you discuss sound intriguing. For what they're worth, here are my takes on a few of the books you mention:--

Enjoyed the article, Ben, even finding that all of the authors you describe were unknown to me. It's good to have them available should I wish to explore them afresh, and it's good to know Brash and Stark House are doing this and enjoying a growing success.
