The Cuban Affair: A Novel

For anyone fascinated with Cuba (like me), this is a special treat.


The Cuban Affair: A Novel
Kirkus Reviews : The Cuban Affair (September 19, 2017)

A good day’s work from an old pro.


Enigma
Kirkus Reviews : Enigma (September 12, 2017)

A formulaic twofer combines some interesting philosophical questions with more familiar charges of Beltway corruption that could be ripped from the latest headlines.


The Romanov Ransom

Cussler’s plots sometime slip outside of the box of believability, but he’s always entertaining.


Every Last Lie

Disappointing and worthy of skipping entirely.


The Quiet Child

The Quiet Child makes for a great latest from Burley.


The Girl with Kaleidoscope Eyes

The Girl With Kaleidoscope Eyes is fun and light. If you enjoy amateur sleuths, books about books, canine buddy reads, and/or celebrity gossip scandals, I'd absolutely recommend giving this one a try!


House of Spies

It’s a workmanlike spy thriller that should, at the very least, whet your appetite for earlier Silvas.


Fierce Kingdom: A Novel

It is a fast, occasionally brutal book that can be read nearly in real time. But it lingers and forces us to ask uncomfortable questions, the answers to which are more troubling, and also more beautiful, than we might anticipate.


Safe

Through multiple definitions of the word “safe” – physical, emotional, psychological, financial – Gattis has created a gripping novel about opportunity, transformation and hope.


Charlatans
Kirkus Reviews : Charlatans (August 22, 2017)

A return to form for the master of medical malevolence.


The Quiet Child
Bookreporter : The Quiet Child (August 12, 2017)

Burley is a gifted author, and his substantial skill set is on strong display in this work, which has overtones of the mystery, thriller and supernatural genres.


Dead On Arrival
Bookreporter : Dead on Arrival (August 05, 2017)

[W]hat makes Dead On Arrival most appealing is that the issues it raises stay with the reader after the final page; it’s not just a good read, it’s a provocative one.


The Lost Ones

Not only is this book about Nora and her daughter, Bonnie, but it's also about Canada's treatment of its own indigenous people and environmental issues as well.


Testimony

Turow has not lost his gift for marshalling huge amounts of information and orchestrating its careful release to the reader.


The Forgotten Girl

This is an offbeat, suspenseful meditation on memory and longing by a writer like no other.


The Mentor

The Mentor is a rich, rewarding thriller that offers plenty of suspense and a few satirical laughs.


Lockdown: A Novel of Suspense
Kirkus Reviews : Lockdown (June 13, 2017)

“Your purpose is to show how things tie together,” the harried principal reflects as zero hour looms. King delivers, providing both a drama-filled anatomy of the school and a chance for its community to show its best by the way it confronts the worst Career Day imaginable.


Enemy of the Good

A fine read with a heroine too honorable to shoot the dog.
