Want You Dead

If you're looking for a fast-paced and pretty brutal police procedural, Peter James has a knack for just that.


Want You Dead
Kirkus Reviews : Want You Dead (November 18, 2014)

Bryce’s ruthless proficiency as an arsonist guarantees the requisite number of pulse-pounding set pieces, but the whole affair feels a bit mechanical, right down to the climactic sequence in which he and Red are locked together inside the panic room she’s installed to keep him at bay.


The Escape
Kirkus Reviews : The Escape (November 18, 2014)

A book that will entertain some readers but won’t linger after the final page.


Private India: City on Fire

The book’s beating heart is a murder mystery that’s puzzling and intriguing, but the star is Mumbai itself, a city of social, cultural and financial contrasts.... Whether you regard yourself as a Private completist or a first-time visitor to this far- and wide-ranging series, CITY ON FIRE rewards.


Want You Dead

Want You Dead is a thrilling page-turner from start to finish, accessible to new readers, but satisfying to those already familiar with its world.


The Burning Room
Kirkus Reviews : The Burning Room (November 03, 2014)

Expect Bosch to uncover a nest of vipers as powerful as they are untouchable, but don’t expect him to emerge from his Herculean labors a happy man.


Havana Storm
Kirkus Reviews : Havana Storm (October 28, 2014)

Another super Cussler fun read fit for a lazy weekend.


Gray Mountain: A Novel
Kirkus Reviews : Gray Mountain (October 21, 2014)

Literary fast food: It’s tasty enough, but it’s probably not so good for you, with or without the lumps of coal.


Blue Warrior
Kirkus Reviews : Blue Warrior (October 16, 2014)

A multifaceted political thriller that will delight tech junkies.


Mr Mercedes

It's not the book I'd give you to start with his bibliography (that would probably be The Stand, or It, or The Shining) but it's an enjoyable read and worth picking up, especially if you're a big fan of his writing.


Sometimes the Wolf

If you buy this book—and I sincerely hope you do—the casual ease with which Waite tosses out that final clue, the one which lays bare all the family secrets, will have you shaking your head with admiration.


The Silent Sister

A compulsively readable melodrama.


Truth Be Told

Truth Be Told is a story of financial and emotional manipulation, and the primal need that most humans have for home, family, and love.


Seven Wonders

Mezrich’s nonfiction has been criticized for being a bit loose with the facts, but he clearly has a talent for latching onto a good story. If his earlier books are guilty of too much fiction, the chief flaw of this novel may be it has too little.


No Time to Die

It is the entertaining yet sophisticated exploration of the biggest ideas and issues shaping our future that distinguishes this tantalizing biomedical thriller.


The Book of You

Kendal’s capacious knowledge of traditional fairy tales and their persistence in our culture and literature is apparent.


In the Red
Kirkus Reviews : In the Red (September 25, 2014)

The limpid prose quickly persuades the reader to a trust not unlike Irina's in Andrei—and like Andrei, Shapiro's novel is at first enticing, then ambiguous and ultimately coldhearted.


Broken Monsters

The result is a novel that is intense at times, fascinating at others, but overall a disappointment given the talent readers know Ms. Beukes has.


Broken Monsters

If you fancy something well written, disturbingly dark but with some real depth, then Broken Monsters is it.


Broken Monsters

This is proper horror, with the requisite amount of killings, and this is proper crime, with clues and red herrings and scumbag journalists trying to get rich on YouTube. The fact that both exist in the same novel doesn’t make it a mash up. It makes it a fresh, super-fun read.
