A Gathering of Secrets

Undoubtedly, fans of Linda Castillo’s Kate Burkholder series are immersed in a massive reread before A Gathering of Secrets (10th in the series) is released.


The Girl From Blind River

The author’s authoritative, powerful prose and knack for dialogue—especially when dealing with emotions and violence—are more indicative of a seasoned veteran rather than a debut author. This is great news because it means there is much more to come from Massey, and if The Girl from Blind River is any indication, it will be great.


All These Beautiful Strangers

The story of a long-game revenge played out between generations.


A Gathering of Secrets

Another rewarding crime novel that looks beyond the idealized image of the Amish.

Bearskin
Bookreporter : Bearskin (June 16, 2018)

Bearskin’s language is taut and tense. Virtually every sentence is crafted to keep readers slightly on edge... Readers will be hard-pressed to put down this propulsive narrative once they pick it up.


Head On

The whole novel is a fun play on the science fiction novel and detective story.


A Howl of Wolves

Flanders provides insightful moments about working with creative people that are endearing and charming, and delivers a twisty plot that would make book editor Sam smile.

Burnout examines a timely subject, but it’s the depiction of relationships, all with plenty of nuance, that is the main reason to pick up this book.


Head On
Kirkus Reviews : Head On (April 17, 2018)

Very clever, wonderfully satisfying fun.


The Affliction

No subject is too dire for [Gutcheon's] sharp and witty commentator-protagonists, and this is a fun and well-crafted story.


Cave of Bones

The atmospheric prose in CAVE OF BONES brings back fond memories of travel through this mysterious and legendary world that my family calls home.


The Wild Inside

I did love the setting and the vivid imagery used to describe Tracy's surroundings and I think Bradbury is a fantastic storyteller.


The Wild Inside

The Wild Inside is a compelling mystery and suspense-filled thriller that proves Jamey Bradbury is an exceptionally talented writer.


The Third Victim

The narrative is fast-moving and rife with red herrings and legitimate clues. The Third Victim is one book you will not be able to put down.


The Temptation of Forgiveness

Once again, Leon gives us that rare novel that will satisfy fans of pure mysteries while entrancing those who are interested in personalities, cultures, and the complexities of life and living.
