Tigers in Red Weather: A Novel

The pulse of “Tigers in Red Weather” is too faint for a large audience, but this is a well-crafted novel that tracks the way familial disappointments can ferment into poisonous hatreds.


You & Me

Padgett Powell knows a lot of crap about life. Some of us would just like to see it transmuted into rebelliously conventional prose.


Devil's Wake: A Novel

My one critique that i have of this story is that when i come to the end of it, i was left wanting more.


The Wanderers

Brandon writes well and said the story was developed as a single novel and then broken into three parts, which accounts for the abrupt endings of the first two novels.


Whispers Under Ground

I urge any fan of urban fantasy who hasn’t yet read the Peter Grant books to give them a try.


A Girl Like You

It’s a sweet, happy-go-lucky piece that was a pleasure to read and had me grinning from beginning to end.


Swimming Studies

It becomes the subtle narrative of an artist who has found beauty in the repetitive prosaicism of daily life.


Whispers Under Ground

The quality of the writing is superb with an instantly engaging style and subtle humour that makes reading the novel a real joy and almost impossible to resist.


The Bellwether Revivals: A Novel

For those readers up for an extended sojourn in and around the golden precincts of Cambridge, Wood’s thriller, with its comfortably broken-in plot premise, may well be agreeable enough.


The Twilight War: The Secret History of America's Thirty-Year Conflict with Iran

David Crist’s painstakingly researched and elegantly written account of the United States-Iran cold war, is an earnest chronicle of this shadowy history.


Sin's Dark Caress

The beginning of Sin's Dark Caress was rather slow, but once things got in motion, they took off with a bang, almost, but not quite to the point of chaos


The Obamians: The Struggle Inside the White House to Redefine American Power

There are no great squabbles or juicy scandals here, but valuable insights of how foreign policy really is made. The result is an indispensable account of an unexplored realm deep in Obama's White House.


Carry the Flame

Carry the Flame is the fight for hope and a better future. It is the rejection of a life of darkness, a life of fear.


Gunmetal Magic

If you haven’t picked up these books, go ahead and do it. Now if you’ll excuse me, I think I’m going to re-read the entire series.


Dare Me: A Novel
Kirkus Reviews : Dare Me (August 01, 2012)

Compelling, claustrophobic and slightly creepy in a can’t-put-it-down way.


Double Cross: The True Story of the D-Day Spies
Kirkus Reviews : Double cross (August 01, 2012)

Invisible ink, double-agent homing pigeons and a Hollywood double for Gen. Monty—nicely woven tales of stealth, brashness and derring-do.


Yok
Kirkus Reviews : Yok (August 01, 2012)

An intriguing mix of fable, philosophy and witty fun.


Darklands

All urban fantasy lovers should be reading this superb series, and this reviewer will be first in line for book five.


Darklands

Darklands was incredibly action packed, leaving me literally on the edge of my seat.
