Two Kinds of Truth

All the structural problems you’d expect from jamming two urgent but unrelated cases together: during much of the second half, Connelly (The Late Show, 2017, etc.) seems to be tying up increasingly low-impact loose ends. But a marvelous courtroom sequence will bring you cheering to your feet.


The Cuban Affair: A Novel

The Cuban Affair is a largely satisfying performance by a seasoned pro. Nelson DeMille blends a wide range of story elements and techniques with assurance and daring. And his prose marches to a compelling drumbeat.


Heather, the Totality

Heather, the Totality is horribly coercive; it is also an oblique diagnosis of the sickness at the heart of contemporary America, a nation bloated on liberal middle-class complacency and seething with the rage and paranoia of its neglected ones.


Heather, the Totality

Heather, The Totality doesn't break any new ground stylistically; instead, it chillingly reminds us of how unstable the ground is that we take for granted beneath our feet.


Heather, the Totality

Although it has none of Mad Men’s surface glamour, Heather, the Totality offers its readers a not dissimilar pleasure: that of an addictive, even thrilling, nihilism.


Fierce Kingdom: A Novel

Where Fierce Kingdom really impresses is in its morality debates between surviving and saving lives


Hello Again

Which brings me to the last point: without giving too much away, those looking for a satisfying ending may have to wait until that next book.


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.
