The Chase: A Novel
Bookreporter : The Chase (March 14, 2014)

A fun, page-turning action series with fresh new characters and themes as current as our ever-turbulent world events.


All Our Names
Bookreporter : All Our Names (March 14, 2014)

A riveting and important commentary on the rootlessness of immigrants from war-ravaged countries and the challenges of assimilation in Western lands.


The Black-Eyed Blonde

Chandler aficionados will flock to THE BLACK-EYED BLONDE, as should anyone who ever enjoyed a private-eye novel, however peripherally.


City of Darkness and Light

In spite of the severity of Molly's situation, it's a fun romp that allows her to cross paths with several famous names from the art world during that period of time.


The Lost Sisterhood: A Novel

Fortier's boldly original take on [THE ILIAD], as well as her consideration of issues of artifact restitution and the ethics of archaeological research, will intrigue lovers of ancient worlds as well as those who are just fans of a good story.


Watching You
Bookreporter : Watching You (March 14, 2014)

Watching You is a perfect example of [Robotham's] talent and ability to keep you up all night because you literally cannot put down his books.


The Moon Sisters: A Novel

Often heartwrenching and occasionally strange, The Moon Sisters is an emotionally compelling and honest novel with just a touch of fairy tale.


Dear Abigail: The Intimate Lives and Revolutionary Ideas of Abigail Adams and Her Two Remarkable Sisters

Diane Jacobs uses the sisters’ own words to weave a tapestry of life in the 18th century, just as women were not only facing the creation of a new society but also considering their ultimately very important place in it.


The Blazing World: A Novel

Hustvedt has a lot of very entertaining satirical fun in The Blazing World, but that particular note of tragedy, though she tries to sound it, remains lost.


Leaving the Sea: Stories

The stories in Leaving the Sea reach and even surpass the heights of bleakness that Marcus has achieved in his earlier books.


The Blazing World: A Novel

Like fire, it feeds as it consumes: It gives off the warmth and light by which to read, understand, marvel at it — but in order to do so it absorbs the reader's gaze, knowledge and attention and combusts them, transforms them into the brightness by which it is read.


Savage Girl

If you like tales with a touch of the unusual, of dark secrets and deep mysteries, and about the extremes of wealth and poverty and intriguing settings, then this book will definitely please.


One Night in Winter

The author has done an incredible amount of research, skilfully blending the facts with fiction.


On Leave

In many ways, though, “On Leave” is less about war than about class, about the class inequity and social alienation that allows a culture to ship its young people off to a place where all men become equal in the most extreme manner possible.


The Black-Eyed Blonde

Cancer sticks aside, “The Black-Eyed Blonde” could be passed off as a newly discovered Chandler manuscript found in some dusty La Jolla closet, leaving only linguistic detectives to ferret out the fraud.


Clever Girl

“Clever Girl” isn’t plot-driven and isn’t a character study and isn’t preoccupied with language, but its elements work in patient harmony.


Fukushima: The Story of a Nuclear Disaster

Though the book’s language is often technical — readers should be prepared to grapple with hydrogen explosions, probabilistic risk assessments and the need to install filters in the hardened containment vents of boiling water reactors — its message is unabashedly activist.


Wondrous Beauty: The Life and Adventures of Elizabeth Patterson Bonaparte

Unfortunately for Berkin, a skilled storyteller and exemplary researcher, the remainder of Betsy’s life is marked by extraordinary bitterness and one depressing domestic scene after another.


Five Came Back: A Story of Hollywood and the Second World War

“Five Came Back” enables us to watch the films of Ford, Capra, Wyler, Huston and Stevens with new insight.
