The Lost City of the Monkey God--EXTENDED FREE PREVIEW (first 6 chapters): A True Story

It is hard to feel anything but sympathy for Preston, however, given that he ended up suffering so grievously for the sake of this book.


The Believer
Kirkus Reviews : The Believer (January 17, 2017)

Suspenseful and primed for Hollywood adaptation, this is escapist fiction at its best.


Carve the Mark
Kirkus Reviews : Carve the Mark (January 17, 2017)

Brimming with plot twists and highly likely to please Roth’s fans.


The Wicked City

Even for a series launch, too much is left dangling.


Masks and Shadows

Masks and Shadows is an elegant literary symphony in which the author displays mastery of nuanced characterisation, romance, opera, intrigue and dark alchemy.


The Nix: A novel

There is no denying the inventive wit and energy on display; but a writer needs to take an occasional step back to consider the reader, who may have a life of their own to be getting on with.


The Moravian Night

A sad story—perhaps, but one in which fantasy and history dance nimbly. Stellar.


The Dry

Harper does a wonderful job ratcheting up the suspense in The Dry.


The Road Ahead: Stories of the Forever War

These stories provide plenty of revelation on the nature of the war and the soldiers who continue to fight it.


Little Deaths: A Novel
Kirkus Reviews : Little Deaths (January 17, 2017)

Sharply rendered literary noir, compelling enough to forgive a slightly left-field resolution.


A City Dreaming: A Novel

Is A City Dreaming Polansky’s most accessible work? No, probably not. Is it his most ambitious book to date? It just might be.


Homesick for Another World: Stories

Amid the collection’s dark tone, Moshfegh imbues an equally dark humor, at times absurd, at others melancholy and bone-dry.


The Nowhere Man

In another writer’s hands, Evan Smoak could be cartoonish, but the Nowhere Man is anything but a comic book character, and this novel anything but an ordinary thriller.


The Meaning of Michelle

Not all of the essays are perfect, but I don't think readers will come away from this collection disappointed.


A Puzzle to Be Named Later

The characters are well-formed and the plot is clever, leading you through a maze of puzzles and clues that eventually end with the killer.
