The Autumn Republic

A slam-bang conclusion to an outstanding trilogy.


To Explain the World

While Weinberg confines most mathematics to a 95-page appendix, readers will strain to comprehend some of the lengthy nuts-and-bolts explanations, but those who persist will come away with a stimulating view of how humans learn from nature.


Obsession in Death

More futuristic tech than usual but little suspense, less mystery and a generic culprit. Even Eve’s final confrontation with her prey, normally a strength of this venerable series, is a letdown. Happy New Year.


Twelve Days
Kirkus Reviews : Twelve Days (February 10, 2015)

This one is well-worth the thriller enthusiast’s time, which holds true for all the novels Berenson has written to date.


The Long and Faraway Gone

A mystery with a deep, wounded heart. Read it.


Pardon the Ravens

Hruska is a clever writer.


Phantom Angel

Recognition of human frailty and desires—those aspects of character that don’t dwell on the surface—that’s what makes Benji more than a talented detective.


The Long and Faraway Gone

The Long Faraway Goneis an excellent book written with literary style. Berney’s characters, especially Wyatt, will stay with you long after you've turned the last page.


Holy Cow
NPR : Don't Have A 'Cow,' Man (February 09, 2015)

Holy Cow is one of the most half-baked, phoned-in books I've ever read, and it's hard to look at it as anything but a vanity project.


The Whites

Despite its occasional lumps, this novel is, at once, a gripping police procedural and an affecting study in character and fate.


The Ghost Shift: A Novel

The book is more than a veiled commentary on China’s current affairs. The plot is ingenious and fast-paced, and characterisation nicely done.


Things Half in Shadow

The narrative is wonderfully descriptive and lyrical.


When Books Went to War: The Stories That Helped Us Win World War II

Highly recommended for book lovers and history buffs.


Love and Lies

What “Love and Lies” has in its favor is a naked sincerity that is almost painfully touching at moments.


Believer: My Forty Years in Politics

Even the throwaway anecdotes in “Believer” are revealing.


Cold War

Cold War’s assault of facts, bar-brawl play-by-plays and criminal nicknames (“Sasquatch,” “The Chess Player,” “Tony,” etc.) reads more like a series of bound-together Wikipedia entries. Worse than making Canadian crime seem sensational or glamorous, Cold War makes it seem altogether boring.
