The Second Life of Nick Mason

With a terrific new hero built for the long run, Hamilton stands to gain new followers—especially if Hollywood's plans to adapt the book come to fruition.


100 Days of Cake

Still, for a book about depression, this is a pretty enjoyable one.


The Boys in the Bunkhouse

Gently, empathetically, and indelibly, Barry conveys a tale of unthinkable brutality.


Blood Flag

Martini holds serve with his 14th Paul Madriani thriller, in which Hitler's evil legacy continues to haunt survivors of World War II.


The Sky Over Lima

Charming if a bit precious, Bárcena’s novel is both a love letter to the creative process and a contemplation on the sometimes-blurred line between life and art.


Girls on Fire

Simultaneously overwhelming and underwhelming.


The Last Ranch: A Novel of the New American West

A latter-day oater, of some interest to fans of the genre.


Lost and Gone Forever

Grecian (The Harvest Man, 2015, etc.) spares no gruesome detail in this fifth installment about the hunt for England’s most famous serial killer. If you’re up for one more tale about him and you can stand the gore, you’re in for quite a ride.


The Last Star

A haunting, unforgettable finale.


All Fixed Up

Sure to please series regulars and fans of urban fantasy/mystery/romance.


Dark Run
Kirkus Reviews : Dark Run (May 24, 2016)

Brooks delivers a predictable, formulaic, old-fashioned space Western peopled with likable, flawed characters who gallop across an entertaining page-turner, pausing infrequently for either emotion or depth.


The 100 Year Miracle

A vivid setting, credible science, and flashes of dry wit aren’t enough to balance the gloom of this not-so-thrilling thriller.


Helping Children Succeed: What Works and Why

Informative and effective methods to help children overcome issues and thrive at home and in school.


The Mirror Test: America at War in Iraq and Afghanistan

Vivid pages soaked with blood, reverberating with cries of pain, loss, and regret.


Marlene
Kirkus Reviews : Marlene (May 23, 2016)

An ambitious but occasionally overbroad account of the life of the German-American star whose life spanned continents, wars, and nearly an entire century.


The Opposite of Woe: My Life in Beer and Politics

Hickenlooper draws an analogy between brewing and politics (the activist as yeast, the political leader as brewer), but however apt that metaphor, it’s difficult to imagine a more unusual preparation for public life than the one ably recounted here.


Secondhand Time: The Last of the Soviets

Profoundly significant literature as history.


Girls on Fire

I didn't really like Girls on Fire. It's just a little too everything for my taste.


A Country Road, A Tree: A novel

Yet for all its deliberate obscurities, “A Country Road, a Tree” is much less radical in style and conception than the man Baker has chosen to honor.
