The Last One: A Novel

The Last One certainly doesn’t drag, but it also doesn’t produce an especially satisfying conclusion.


Fatal Pursuit: A novel

Walker’s latest Bruno adventure has a lighter touch than earlier entries but offers as pleasing a puzzle as any.


Friendly Fire

Like the flashbang grenade Digger uses, Friendly Fire packs 'a blinding flash and a teeth-rattling bang' of intense thriller reading, Gilstrap’s best of the series.


Brighton

This mighty thriller will exhaust you and fool you, astonish you and hold you in its clutches. You may wish you could close your eyes, but they’ll be stuck wide open.


Shot In Detroit

Abbott’s true gift as a storyteller is her ability to create and maintain atmosphere.


Forgive Me
Bookreporter : Forgive Me (June 04, 2016)

I may be wrong, but Forgive Me has the feel of the start of a new series. It is complete in itself but leaves some matters dangling at the end, which would provide fodder to be pursued over the course of one or more future volumes.


I'm Thinking of Ending Things

Swift and sharply rendered, I’m Thinking of Ending Things contains psychic traces of Alfred Hitchcock (Vertigo) and Margaret Atwood (Surfacing) for the way that Reid massages facts through the filter of extreme anxiety.


Before the Fall

This is one of the year’s best suspense novels, a mesmerizing, surprise-jammed mystery that works purely on its own, character-driven terms.


The Second Life of Nick Mason

With a terrific new hero built for the long run, Hamilton stands to gain new followers—especially if Hollywood's plans to adapt the book come to fruition.


Blood Flag

Martini holds serve with his 14th Paul Madriani thriller, in which Hitler's evil legacy continues to haunt survivors of World War II.


Lost and Gone Forever

Grecian (The Harvest Man, 2015, etc.) spares no gruesome detail in this fifth installment about the hunt for England’s most famous serial killer. If you’re up for one more tale about him and you can stand the gore, you’re in for quite a ride.


I Let You Go

Clare Mackintosh's debut is a fabulously mind bendy read perfect for fans of psychological suspense.


Death at Breakfast

I'm glad Death at Breakfast wasn't a total wash but, thanks to my high expectations, it obviously wasn't what I'd hoped for.


The Second Life of Nick Mason

It’s a tight, gripping book about a man hellbent on reinventing himself against long odds. By a writer who knows whereof he speaks.


Maestra

Judith is seriously disturbed but I couldn’t help myself from falling for her outward charm and inner determination to succeed at any cost.


The Winter People: A Novel

The Winter People is a fabulous addition to McMahon's list of titles.


Aunty Lee's Chilled Revenge

They're great for light reading evenings, but three books in I'd really hoped some of the kinks would be worked out by now.


Noble Chase: A Novel

A dandy debut novel featuring lawyers with both integrity and nautical skills.


Design for Dying

Although the serenely levelheaded costumer designer gets to solve the mystery, Patrick often keeps her under wraps, and even the cameos by Gracie Allen, Bob Hope, Barbara Stanwyck, and Preston Sturges aren't an adequate substitute. Here’s hoping the promised series will redress the balance.
