Shark Skin Suite

Once again, Serge proves that homicidal mania has its points as Dorsey takes aim at more massive villains than usual.

The Girl on the Train: A Novel

Readers looking for the next big mind-blowing novel are only going to experience disappointment.

See How Small: A Novel

See How Small is a brutal, necessary and near perfect novel.

Unbecoming: A Novel

If you are looking for a modern suspenseful novel similar to The Goldfinch, then I think this would be a great starting place!

Cane and Abe
Kirkus Reviews : Cane and Abe (January 20, 2015)

If only the answers to these questions were as good as the questions. As it is, Grippando supplies a satisfyingly wild ride through Presumed Innocent territory before the inevitable letdown.

Baltimore Blues

As a series kick off, it works perfectly. Tess is engaging and stands out - an athletic and inquisitive woman who's more than a bit judgmental but incredibly clever.

Her: A Novel

My only quibble with Her is that Nina’s preternatural ability to accurately anticipate Emma’s every reaction and thought is a little too, well, preternatural.


Moriarty is a fun little mystery novel with a little bit of a nostalgic Sherlockian tone to it.

An Appetite for Violets

While I enjoyed the characterizations and writing style, as well as watching Biddy’s world open up for her personally as well as professionally, I felt the last third of the book seemed to lose its place.

City of Liars and Thieves: A Novel

I would have liked for certain aspects of City of Liars and Thieves to have been further fleshed out.

The Girl on the Train: A Novel

What really makes The Girl on the Train such a gripping novel is Hawkins' remarkable understanding of the limits of human knowledge, and the degree to which memory and imagination can become confused.

The Girl on the Train: A Novel

Even the most astute readers will be in for a shock as Hawkins slowly unspools the facts, exposing the harsh realities of love and obsession’s inescapable links to violence.

The Carrier
Kirkus Reviews : The Carrier (January 13, 2015)

Fans will love the endlessly knotty complications; those unable to commit their full attention to the problem at hand may well quit in exhaustion before the denouement.

The Unquiet Dead

Khan’s stunning debut is a poignant, elegantly written mystery laced with complex characters who force readers to join them in dealing with ugly truths.

A Fine Summer's Day

If you're looking to start a new series and can't get enough of WWI-era England, I suggest snatching this one up ASAP!

Winter at the Door: A Novel

Lizzie Snow is a feisty and smart character with an excellent future. Sarah Graves has created a heroine with all of the attributes readers look for in their cops.

Dying for the Past

Tuck’s second moves along briskly enough, but the plethora of suspects and motives may leave you scratching your head.

Bred to Kill: A Thriller
Kirkus Reviews : Bred to Kill (January 08, 2015)

French author Thilliez's follow-up to his international hit Syndrome E is nearly as good, leaving us eager to have the rest of his efforts released in the U.S.

A Circle of Wives

Circle of Wives is a great puzzle of a read.
