Broken Monsters

If you fancy something well written, disturbingly dark but with some real depth, then Broken Monsters is it.


Broken Monsters

This is proper horror, with the requisite amount of killings, and this is proper crime, with clues and red herrings and scumbag journalists trying to get rich on YouTube. The fact that both exist in the same novel doesn’t make it a mash up. It makes it a fresh, super-fun read.


Broken Monsters
Kirkus Reviews : Broken Monsters (September 17, 2014)

Beukes gave us a time traveling serial killer in The Shining Girls, and the monsters in her latest tale, whether they’re real or imagined, will keep you up all night.


Broken Monsters

Broken Monsters is one of the most remarkable books of the year, and one of the best suspense novels you'll read in quite some time.


Broken Monsters

"Broken Monsters" holds up a mirror to those who rabidly hit refresh in search of more dehumanizing gore and those who wish to be a star in the atrocity exhibition.


Broken Monsters

At its best, this wickedly unpleasant thriller has a rare and intriguing capacity to make the reader think.


Broken Monsters

Never exploitative, never superficial, never uncomplicated: Beukes shows how horror can be the best way to explain our unbelievable reality. She uses the mode like the knife that opens the oyster.


The Marco Effect: A Department Q Novel

Another fabulous one from Jussi Adler-Olsen!


Last Kiss

If you like books that are a fairly quick read and don’t mess with your head but do keep you hooked then you are really going to love Last Kiss.


Personal: A Jack Reacher Novel
Kirkus Reviews : Personal (September 02, 2014)

Every Reacher novel delivers a jolt to the nervous system, but this lacks some of the stylistic flair that truly distinguishes Child.


Seven Wonders
Kirkus Reviews : Seven Wonders (September 02, 2014)

A comiclike outing rich in repetition and clichés, this typing exercise is at heart an intriguing story that deserved a writer who could rise at least to the level of a Dan Brown, yet another Mezrich creditor.


One Kick

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


Replay

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

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