Mistrial: An Inside Look at How the Criminal Justice System Works...and Sometimes Doesn't

A no-holds-barred indictment of the system, filled with memorable anecdotes and accessibly written.


Odds Against Tomorrow

Mr. Rich paints a convincing and dreadful portrait of a city about to be destroyed, a city so insensate and self-involved that it fails to recognize when it’s staring doom in the face.


House of Earth

His genius was song, and House of Earth is a bit of an oddity, though certainly a readable one.


Stay Close to Me

I would highly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys a good family drama. I was hooked from the start and really felt I knew each character by the end.


Six Years

It’s easy to quibble with the novel’s romantic elements. Mr. Coben didn’t set out to write a romance; he set out to write a damn good thriller. But it is a romance.


Born Wicked

The book was well written and I think over all worth reading but I hope the second novel includes a bit more action as this one seemed to just set the scene.


House of Secrets

House of Secrets is a bloated example of style over substance, with a contrived plot, unrealistic characters and very little in the way of redeeming qualities.


Tarnished Knight

Tarnished Knight proves that Campbell can continue to produce entertaining, thought-provoking far future, space-based science fiction


Promise of Blood

I would recommend Promise of Blood to fans of Brandon Sanderson and Brent Weeks. There is plenty of action and the plot is fast moving. Plus this is a debut, McClellan could really knock the sequel out of the park.


The Forever Knight

I like a good meaty fantasy and would have loved for this one to be at least twice as long as it was.


All Seeing Eye

Thurman explores some truly gruesome sites as he tries to track down a killer that only he can find. And when I say gruesome, I do mean gruesome!


All We Know

Spinning web-like connections between one mind and another, showing how one source of inspiration moves out in concentric circles, wider and wider and wider.


Woke Up Lonely

Through some final exuberant sleight of hand, Maazel rigs her convoluted plot so that the endpoint — in which love triumphs, briefly — is both poignant and unpredictable.


A Memory of Light

A bittersweet novel in many ways, for both the generalness of what it is and the specifics; it is the final novel in the series that Jordan was unable to see published, and a novel that could in practically no way live up to every expectation laid upon it.


A Memory of Light

A Memory of Light does its job properly, offering fans of the series many epic moments while staying true to the spirit of The Wheel of Time.


A Memory of Light

An ending that satisfies without ever letting readers forget what was lost.


A Memory of Light

Sanderson's done right by Jordan, his fantasy series, and its many, many fans. I'd still say the Wheel rolled much further than it needed to, but at least in A Memory of Light it comes to a stop in a decent location.


The Interestings: A Novel

The book is juicy, perceptive and vividly written. But 40 years in the lives of six characters is a lot of ground to cover, and Wolitzer sometimes skims the surface.


All That Is

The novel is similar in design and tone to what Salter has always offered: a plaintive, impressionistic look at how we live in time, how little we ever understand about the amorphous shape of our own lives.


Woke Up Lonely

If there’s one thing this novel wants to remind me, it’s that demanding that the world fit exactly to my expectations is a good way to end up lonely.
