The Believer
Kirkus Reviews : The Believer (January 17, 2017)

Suspenseful and primed for Hollywood adaptation, this is escapist fiction at its best.


Little Deaths: A Novel
Kirkus Reviews : Little Deaths (January 17, 2017)

Sharply rendered literary noir, compelling enough to forgive a slightly left-field resolution.


This Is Not Over

Brown brings these two women to life with insight and sympathy. Sometimes it’s painfully realistic in its psychology. Hopefully, it never turns into a true crime story….


The Nowhere Man

In another writer’s hands, Evan Smoak could be cartoonish, but the Nowhere Man is anything but a comic book character, and this novel anything but an ordinary thriller.


Little Heaven: A Novel

While Cutter’s nods to great horror films and writers of the seventies and eighties abound in this book, from The Wicker Man to Nightmare on Elm Street to Stephen King and Robert McCammon, Little Heaven is never a pastiche mixtape of its forebears.


Everything You Want Me to Be

A beautiful, young, talented woman on the cusp of greatness is dead and a community is rocked to its core by not only her murder but also the secrets that come to light during the investigation.


The River at Night

I thought it was a fabulous debut and absolutely great page-turning fun!


Little Heaven: A Novel

This thing is basically a mashup of King’s greatest hits, except it’s lacking all the magic that makes King’s work shine.


Fear Is the Rider

Overall, it’s yet another “unearthed” work from a major writer that should have remained buried.


Ring of Fire
Kirkus Reviews : Ring of Fire (January 10, 2017)

A page-turner that’s enriched by the author’s obvious familiarity with the intricacies of combating 21st-century terrorism.


Conclave: A novel

“Conclave” is not the best thriller Harris has ever written. But the machinations surrounding the papal election will surely fascinate and hold many readers. Elections have a way of doing that, now, don’t they?


Conclave: A novel

It is the best Robert Harris novel to date.


Conclave: A novel
Kirkus Reviews : Conclave (November 22, 2016)

An illuminating read for anyone interested in the inner workings of the Catholic Church; for prelate-fiction superfans, it is pure temptation.


Chaos

Readers new to Cornwell will find themselves involved from the very first page, as will the veterans. CHAOS is one book you should not miss.


Chaos
Kirkus Reviews : Chaos (November 15, 2016)

Fans, aware that this particular fatality is incidental to the larger saga of the heroine’s epic struggle with the forces of evil, will forgive the absence of a coherent mystery or characters worth caring about. The closest analogue to Cornwell’s wildly successful series, in fact, may be a superhero franchise.


The Chemist

At least it beats Bella mooning over Edward.


Fidelity
Kirkus Reviews : Fidelity (October 11, 2016)

An absorbing read that feels unfinished; and since the FBI’s motto is Fidelity, Bravery, and Integrity, it’s a sure bet there’s a reason.


The Kept Woman

Trust me, if you're ok with dark, this is one that will keep you reading into the wee hours and/or dropping all your commitments to get to the end!


The Woman in Cabin 10

The Woman in Cabin 10 is a fun thriller and one that's put Ware's In A Dark, Dark Wood on my immediate to read list now too.
