Booking Through Thursday: Favorite Unknown

From Booking Through Thursday, here’s this week’s question:

Who’s your favorite author that other people are NOT reading? The one you want to evangelize for, the one you would run popularity campaigns for? The author that, so far as you’re concerned, everyone should be reading–but that nobody seems to have heard of. You know, not JK Rowling, not Jane Austen, not Hemingway–everybody’s heard of them. The author that you think should be that famous and can’t understand why they’re not…
One name comes to mind immediately, and it’s: Craig Johnson.
Best darn mystery author to surface in the past decade.
I’ve raved about him in my reviews of both The Cold Dish (the first in his terrific series) and The Dark Horse, which is his latest.
He just can’t go wrong.
