Genocide of One: A Thriller

Genocide of One becomes a slog of a novel that disgusts, distracts, and disturbs rather than educates, entertains, or enlightens.


Sweet Damage: A Novel
Bookreporter : Sweet Damage (December 05, 2014)

Intriguing and entertaining with richly drawn characters, SWEET DAMAGE is more of a psychological tale than a traditional thriller or chiller, but makes for a good winter's read nonetheless.


The Silent Sister

There are few surprises in The Silent Sister. The story follows a predictable route of misdirection, miscommunication, and faulty decision-making that forces Riley to grow up a bit while she uncovers the truth about Lisa and her father.


Genocide of One: A Thriller
Kirkus Reviews : Genocide of One (December 02, 2014)

The dense, erudite, multiparagraph lectures on microbiology slow down this better-than-average techno-thriller.


The Skeleton Road

This stand-alone from McDermid (Cross and Burn, 2013, etc.) combines conscientious detection with heartfelt reflections on the enduring power of the Yugoslavian breakup to wreak violence long after the 1995 Dayton Accords.


The Skeleton Road

This is another well-written, thought-provoking crime story from one of the leading Scottish crime writers of the century.


The Burning Room

“The Burning Room” is the best Bosch book in years, not only because of its sharp dialogue and fast-paced detective wizardry, but also because it neither dawdles nor lets Harry get moody.


Want You Dead

If you're looking for a fast-paced and pretty brutal police procedural, Peter James has a knack for just that.


Want You Dead
Kirkus Reviews : Want You Dead (November 18, 2014)

Bryce’s ruthless proficiency as an arsonist guarantees the requisite number of pulse-pounding set pieces, but the whole affair feels a bit mechanical, right down to the climactic sequence in which he and Red are locked together inside the panic room she’s installed to keep him at bay.


The Escape
Kirkus Reviews : The Escape (November 18, 2014)

A book that will entertain some readers but won’t linger after the final page.


Private India: City on Fire

The book’s beating heart is a murder mystery that’s puzzling and intriguing, but the star is Mumbai itself, a city of social, cultural and financial contrasts.... Whether you regard yourself as a Private completist or a first-time visitor to this far- and wide-ranging series, CITY ON FIRE rewards.


Want You Dead

Want You Dead is a thrilling page-turner from start to finish, accessible to new readers, but satisfying to those already familiar with its world.


The Burning Room
Kirkus Reviews : The Burning Room (November 03, 2014)

Expect Bosch to uncover a nest of vipers as powerful as they are untouchable, but don’t expect him to emerge from his Herculean labors a happy man.


Havana Storm
Kirkus Reviews : Havana Storm (October 28, 2014)

Another super Cussler fun read fit for a lazy weekend.


Gray Mountain: A Novel
Kirkus Reviews : Gray Mountain (October 21, 2014)

Literary fast food: It’s tasty enough, but it’s probably not so good for you, with or without the lumps of coal.


Blue Warrior
Kirkus Reviews : Blue Warrior (October 16, 2014)

A multifaceted political thriller that will delight tech junkies.


Mr Mercedes

It's not the book I'd give you to start with his bibliography (that would probably be The Stand, or It, or The Shining) but it's an enjoyable read and worth picking up, especially if you're a big fan of his writing.


Sometimes the Wolf

If you buy this book—and I sincerely hope you do—the casual ease with which Waite tosses out that final clue, the one which lays bare all the family secrets, will have you shaking your head with admiration.


The Silent Sister

A compulsively readable melodrama.


Truth Be Told

Truth Be Told is a story of financial and emotional manipulation, and the primal need that most humans have for home, family, and love.
