One Kick

A dark, dangerous journey into evil to find the vanished children, and entirely hide-away-until-you-finish-it gripping.


It is a clever, harmless enough thriller that his name will sell, and one that can while away a few summer hours for the undemanding reader.

Gun Metal Heart
Bookreporter : Gun Metal Heart (August 22, 2014)

Daria has hijacked Haynes’s creative attention, but in the best possible ways, returning as a primary protagonist in Ice Cold Kill and now for another go-around in the newly published and wonderfully titled Gun Metal Heart, which leaves her scrambling to defeat a virtually unbeatable weapon.

Don't Look Back
Bookreporter : Don't Look Back (August 23, 2014)

Hurwitz keeps moving the walls around throughout the story, so that by the time you are halfway through, you’ll have no idea what is going to happen next or to whom, other than it is more than likely going to be extremely, almost unimaginably bad.

You: A novel

“You” is at once a road novel, a thriller that actually thrills, and a stylish experiment in point of view.

Unmanned: A novel

“Unmanned” — a title with several meanings — is an exciting story, expertly told.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot

Mr. Shafer has written a bright, brash entertainment, one that errs, when it errs at all, on the side of generosity, narrative and otherwise. It tips you, geekily and humanely, through the looking glass.

One Kick: A Novel

“One Kick” is well engineered and fast-paced, and its troubling subject matter is suggested rather than spelled out, avoiding gratuitous horror.

One Kick: A Novel

Ms. Cain’s new book, “One Kick,” is the auspicious start of another series that intermingles victimization and romance. But this one is capable of reaching a much broader audience because it is far less gruesome, at least by Ms. Cain’s standards.

Don't Look Back

Hurwitz adds to his string of imaginative thrillers with an action-adventure story ready for blockbuster Hollywood—get Cameron Diaz’s people!

The 6th Extinction

James Rollins dazzles massively with his newest SIGMA adventure and if you haven’t read any of his work yet.


Confessions will simultaneously shock and awe at the depths people will go to seek revenge, acceptance, and/or attention.


The book is a breeze to read — one or two or three stories at a time, and in any sequence. If you’re a fan of thrillers, especially of these 22 thriller writers, you’ll have a good time with this collection.

No Safe House
Bookreporter : No Safe House (August 08, 2014)

No Safe House is Barclay’s most ambitious work to date, full of plot twists and turns, grim humor, rough nobility and dark redemption.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot

An edgy, darkly comedic debut novel whose characters and premise are as up-to-the-minute as an online news feed but as classic as the counterculture rebellions once evoked by Edward Abbey and Ken Kesey.

Those Who Wish Me Dead

As described by Mr. Koryta, the fire and the lightning bolts turn out to be (pardon the expression) illuminating. This novel’s knowledge about the ways that forest fires move is another of its unexpected bonuses.

The Butcher

The Butcher is an adequate thriller. The story itself is interesting and exciting, but there are enough issues to prevent the story from being a great one.


A worthy addition to the list and one which kept me reading.

The Heist
Kirkus Reviews : The Heist (July 15, 2014)

With "a fallen British spy, a one-eyed Italian policeman, a master art thief, [and] a professional assassin from the island of Corsica," Allon’s 14th caper is a fun read.
