The Greatest Knight

A valuable biography of an important figure in a distant, violent, barely comprehensible era.

Selected Letters of Norman Mailer

An intriguing look at a particularly influential life of letters and a treat for Mailer fans.


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 Big Finish
Kirkus Reviews : The Big Finish (December 02, 2014)

Woman with a Gun
Kirkus Reviews : Woman with a Gun (December 02, 2014)

The Chinese box puzzle takes some getting used to, but it allows Margolin to deliver one of his cleverest cases while concealing his principal flaw—paper-thin characters—beneath constant shifts in time and case.


The Beautiful and the Wicked

A fun, nubile, seductive Agatha Christie–meets–The Love Boat, promising twists and turns for everyone.

Kirkus Reviews : Scorched Eggs (December 03, 2014)

The clutch of suspects and appended recipes aren’t quite enough to bring this up to the standard of Childs’ other series, especially the Tea Shop series.


In Bed with a Spy

Lilias is a worthy heroine—beautiful and sweet but with plenty of sharp edges and innate abilities. Angel loves her for her strength but also longs to protect her, which causes friction throughout this delightful novel.


The Vault

The Vault is a fabulous addition to the series.


Bolano: A Biography in Conversations

Clichés cling like grime to Maristain’s prose and she is prone to hyperbole.


The Skeleton Road

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


A True Novel

Racial prejudice, class discrimination, the American dream, the role of immigrants in the United States, women’s position in society and the westernization of Japan are some of the themes addressed by Minae Mizumura through a powerful story about love and loss between Azuma Taro and Yoko.


The Firebird's Feather: A historical mystery set in late Edwardian London

If you are just looking for a flavor of the period, and a taste of Eccles’ work, The Firebird's Feather is a tantalizing sample.
