The Ice Twins: A Novel

The Ice Twins is garnering a lot of comparisons to Gone Girl, which is understandable given its pair of unreliable narrators. But its driven plot, well-drawn, compelling characters, and strong sense of place...put Tremayne’s psychological thriller in a class of its own.


Independence Day

A realistic and entertaining page turner.


Radiant Angel

Perfect summer beach reading, with or without margaritas, full of Glock-and-boat action.


Benefit of the Doubt

Griffin seems possessed of a raw talent that will see him in good stead as he hones his craft. Be sure to check out this grim first effort.


How To Be a Good Wife

Chapman's own achievement is to have created a plausible tale of trauma, a ruthless examination of the many layers of marriage, and a woman's opaque role within it.


Trauma

While the action may not be as relentless as that in The DaVinci Code or as neatly calibrated as the average Jack Reacher encounter, the plights and fights that arise in Trauma will linger with the reader beyond the final page.


Jack of Spades: A Tale of Suspense

The book is a very good read that is neither long nor complex. Fans of Edgar Allan Poe are sure to recognize some of his story plots woven through the novel.


The Ice Twins: A Novel

Tremayne ably spins numerous variations of the which-twin-is-really-dead idea, playing into the inherent creepiness of wholly identical twins like Kirstie and Lydia, indistinguishable even on a DNA level.


I, Ripper: A Novel

Hunter solves the crime, and the Prince of Wales wasn’t the culprit.


Love Is Red

This is one that's going to stick with me for a while.


Fox Is Framed

Lachlan Smith really has something going on here, consisting of a plot that has held up well over the course of three books and has been sustained by interesting, if occasionally quirky, characters.


Killer, Come Hither: A Novel

Killer, Come Hither is enjoyable reading. The ending is foretold early on, but knowing your destination is far different from knowing how you will arrive.


Finding Jake

I think you'll understand when I say that Finding Jake is an emotional read!


Memory Man
Kirkus Reviews : Memory Man (April 21, 2015)

Although the crimes and their perpetrators are far-fetched, readers will want to see Decker back on the printed page again and again.


Where They Found Her

Where They Found Her is still a fine second release for McCreight and yet another read you won't want to put down until you've turned the final page.


The Intern's Handbook: A Thriller

The Intern's Handbook becomes a darkly comic romp through the life and assignments of a young corporate hit man.


The Bullet
Bookreporter : The Bullet (March 27, 2015)

There is a sense of urgency in the writing that is developed in the storyline, so they work hand in hand to do what all good thrillers do: make you race to finish one page to get to the next, as there is new information being uncovered all along.


The Fifth Gospel: A Novel

If you love religious crime fiction and cherish well-written prose as much as I do then you are going to adore this book. It deserves to be at least as successful as Caldwell’s earlier work. I will be watching its progress with great interest.


The Prince: A Novel

Easy reading, compelling characters, and a fascinating topic makes it easy to understand why this novel will end up as the basis for film very soon! Loved it!


The Skeleton Road

The Skeleton Road is a very sad book but a good read as always offered by this author.
