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.

The Fallen

Intelligent, well-researched, and unsettling, this tale often references Yeats’ "The Second Coming" but doesn’t reach that poem’s level of disquietude.

The Red Line

The writing isn’t great, but the action is. If you loved Tom Clancy’s Red Storm Rising or simply miss the 20th century, this one’s a stroll down Memory Lane.

Red Leaves

Simons does a good job of twisting the story in a way that the ultimate reveal is a surprise, but it was slow going to the point of being dry getting there.


Ragdoll had a lot of promise and it is the first in a series. I liked it well enough to read more, but I do hope the next book will pack more of an emotional punch.

Dancing with the Tiger

If you like thrillers with personality and antiques with a side of ruthless thug, Dancing with the Tiger is a book for you.

Never Let You Go

While I may have been disappointed in Never Let You Go, Chevy Stevens is still an author worth reading, as her stories always provide insight into the mind of a victim that is worth learning.

The Cutthroat

Despite an awkward transition or two and a bit of padding (there’s a recipe for Welsh rarebit), the Bell series hits the right note for those who like crime fiction with a unique setting.

The Zero and the One: A Novel

The Zero and The One is a rare oddity within mainstream publishing: a small, complex novel that equally entertains and challenges the reader.

The Trophy Child

A bit of a genre bender, combining elements of suspense, romance and police procedure with family drama to create a page-turner of superior order.

The Housekeeper: A Novel

While it’s engaging and extremely well-written—I stopped several times to marvel at phrases that had me finding meaning in a soggy bowl of cornflakes—the suspense in the book was mostly lacking.

A Divided Spy
Kirkus Reviews : A Divided Spy (February 14, 2017)

The prolific Cumming insufficiently preps the reader on the hero’s back story but writes with ruefully brittle intelligence and keeps the twists coming.

The North Water

Ian McGuire not only plots his story with great skill, he has a wonderful ability to recreate 19th-century language so that there is no sense of dissonance or cod English. It’s an astonishing feat.

Fatal: A Novel

Lescroart wants to pick a side in this battle, but he’s too good a writer to moralize. The result is a dark, disturbing, satisfying read.

This Is Not Over

The novel is most interesting and surprising when Dawn and Miranda begin to face the sordid pasts they wish they didn’t have to own, the egregious choices they’ve made and the terrible lies they struggle to believe.

Under the Knife

Kelly Parsons has produced a top-class thriller that blends medical know-how with criminal intent in the most spine-tingling way.
