Kirkus Reviews : Nemesis (July 09, 2013)

Smooth, readable, not top-notch Pronzini, but better than much of the noir material out there.

Kirkus Reviews : Bombshell (July 09, 2013)

The latest addition to Coulter’s FBI series (Whiplash, 2010, etc.) uses a run-of-the-mill mystery to bring together some of her fans’ favorite characters.

Nearer Home

Joy Castro’s unique storytelling style adds a layer of electricity that serves to elevate her novel, placing it heads and shoulders above the typical thrillers with which it shares a shelf.

The Twelfth Department

I’m in awe at the amount of research which must have gone into making this book appear so realistic and of its time. The dark, oppression of life in Russia under Stalin lurks in the shadows of every page.

The Cat Sitter's Cradle

If you’ve never read a Dixie Hemingway book, The Cat Sitter’s Cradle is a great place to start.


Nemesis delivers a good thought-provoking mystery without exploiting gory crime scenes and unnecessary violence.

The already converted may consider a sermon interleaved with brief slivers of story acceptable; others will be bored rather than outraged.

Difficult Men: Behind the Scenes of a Creative Revolution: From The Sopranos and The Wire to Mad Men and Breaking Bad

The Madonna on the Moon

Though the prose doesn’t set off sparks, Baeurdick finds an off-kilter way to explore a dour period in history.

Five Star Billionaire: A Novel

Five Star Billionaire is a fiercely contemporary tale of tradition, modernity and the cost of progress.

Middle C

There is something in the musicality of Gass’s style that redeems the bleakness of being sentenced to the inhumanity museum.


Taipei might be the first truly social media novel, in so far as it resembles a piece of social media. A massive discharge of waste matter. Overspill. Underwritten.

The Blood of Heaven

Kent Wascom’s “The Blood of Heaven” is the kind of bold, brilliant debut we can forgive for also being convoluted and unwieldy.

The Pink Hotel

A sensual bildungsroman that is part mystery, part love story.

The Other Typist

It’s well worth the read as well as the edginess most readers will feel as Rindell unwinds this novel of love, obsession, and corruption.

Claire DeWitt and the Bohemian Highway

Gran's narrative is an intricate one, where plotlines branch off and the main investigation comes to a halt whenever Claire begins quoting from made-up books about sleuthing

My Education

The writing in this novel is masterful — but the book did something to me emotionally, too. I felt like I was in an obsessive relationship with it. I wanted to read it all the time.
