The Woman in the Water

As was I, fans of the series will be thrilled to learn more of Victorian-era life and the embryonic investigative endeavors of Charles Lenox.

The Stakes
Bookreporter : The Stakes (March 17, 2018)

I love caper novels, and this one is particularly well done. Sanders puts readers in the mind of Elmore Leonard and occasionally Wallace Stroby, though it is his own unique voice and flashes of terrific prose that ultimately shine through.


If you haven't had a chance to dive into Lippman's books yet, this is a perfect place to start. Trust me, you'll love her!

If I Die Tonight

This is a frightening read in that it examines this sort of court of public opinion that is social media today.

The Woman in the Water

The Woman in the Water is a gorgeous, heartfelt look at a young man on the verge of claiming his adulthood, with all its griefs and responsibilities.

Sunday Silence

The plots are so intricately planned and clearly put together with each following story in mind - the attention to detail is phenomenal.

Girl Unknown

Girl Unknown is a slow build, but it so worth it. Bonus tip: if you're a fan of Tana French, you'll want to check this one out.

Force of Nature
Bookreporter : Force of Nature (February 10, 2018)

Harper is definitely not guilty of a sophomore slump, and Force of Nature proves that she is on her way to becoming a household name and must-read author.

This Fallen Prey
Kirkus Reviews : This Fallen Prey (February 06, 2018)

Armstrong continues to expand the highly original Rockton world, focusing this time more on the precipitating events rather than the overarching series back story.

The Woman in the Window: The most exciting debut thriller of the year

What this is is an intelligent, carefully constructed novel of psychological suspense that focuses on a single character whose moods, secrets and fears drive the plot.

Anatomy of a Scandal

Running throughout are timely issues of consent, harassment, privilege, and anachronistic attitudes to women in politics as the author anatomises the inner workings of the corridors of power, as well as the hidden recesses of the mind and heart.

Grist Mill Road

In the end, Grist Mill Road is a story about how no terrible thing happens in a vacuum.

The Silent Room

Though the villains remain little more than sketches and two romantic subplots never really sizzle, the disappearance and investigation are credible and convincing, and the high-octane ending packs plenty of firepower.

Grist Mill Road
Bookreporter : Grist Mill Road (January 13, 2018)

Surprises --- many of them created by the assumptions of the beholder --- abound in this narrative, which cleverly reveals both too much in parts and not enough in others until we get a full portrait of each of the characters, or something like it.

Sunday Silence
Kirkus Reviews : Sunday Silence (January 10, 2018)

The biggest surprise here is not whodunit but just when French will reveal the truth. But fans caught up in the relentless intensity of the sorely tried heroine’s latest travails will be too busy worrying about other, more dangerous problems to notice.
