The Unwinding

He’s written something close to a nonfiction masterpiece.


The Big Time

The Big Time is an underrated attention-grabber of a story, which left me thinking on it long after I’d finished it. And I guess, despite its flaws and despite the strong opposition, that’s why it won a Hugo.


Invisible Murder

Invisible Murder is a gripping thriller which sets the various narrative threads running before entwining them in a nail-biting race against time climax.


Death in the Vines

Vines is worth sinking into with a good glass of wine.


TransAtlantic: A Novel

McCann never lets go of the reader's attention. His sentences are simply too surprising, his observations too astute.


American Savage: Insights, Slights, and Fights on Faith, Sex, Love, and Politics

Beneath its often caustic wit, “American Savage” is on a healing mission. It’s about unification.


The Shambling Guide to New York City

The story arc is unique, the setting and the inevitable culture clash misunderstandings are a comedic goldmine.


Bring Up the Bodies

The writing is undoubtedly superb and the beginning clever with the hawks used at the king’s hunting party being named after Cromwell’s dead daughters.


American Savage: Insights, Slights, and Fights on Faith, Sex, Love, and Politics

At turns serious and humorous, this multifaceted collection of essays will entertain both longtime Savage fans and new readers.


Antiagon Fire

Series fans will snap it up.


The First Rule of Swimming: A Novel

A few unnecessarily melodramatic plot twists only slightly mar a sensitive tale of deep emotional force.


Zero Hour

A C-minus effort.


The Son

In The Son, no one emerges an innocent; not the Anglos, nor the Mexicans, nor the Native Americans. Each group, in its own time, fought viciously to get or keep the land.


The Way of the Knife: The CIA, a Secret Army, and a War at the Ends of the Earth

As a former CIA officer explains, “Every drone strike is an execution. And if we are going to hand down death sentences, there ought to be some public accountability and some public discussion about the whole thing.” Except for books like this, there is neither.


King of Cuba: A Novel

King of Cuba is about wish fulfillment, that long-imagined moment for many exiles when they have a chance to confront the man they blame for ruining their country and so many lives.


The Woman Upstairs

The interplay between reality and imagination in this textual hall of mirrors makes for a deft study of character underpinned by a gripping narrative.


Murder as a Fine Art

“Murder as a Fine Art” may or may not be fine art, but it’s an inspired blend of innovation, history and gore. Murder is rarely this much fun.


Inferno: A Novel

Read “Inferno” to learn a bunch of “Divine Comedy” trivia, sure, or to watch a smart man make wild deductions based on Renaissance symbology.
