Great State
Kirkus Reviews : Great State (March 20, 2020)

With useful maps and stories within stories, this is an ingenious look at an often misunderstood country.


Privilege
Kirkus Reviews : Privilege (March 13, 2020)

A timely and resonant novel.


No Bad Deed
Bookreporter : No Bad Deed (March 01, 2020)

If you enjoy books that keep you on edge, wondering how things will work out, then No Bad Deed is perfect for you. There are twists, followed by more twists, and plenty of excitement and mystery.


The Only Child
Bookreporter : The Only Child (February 22, 2020)

In addition to The Bad Seed, THE ONLY CHILD carries overt references to The Silence of the Lambs. It’s easy to imagine this suspenseful, multilayered novel being adapted into a pretty sinister film in its own right.


The Gimmicks

The Gimmicks impressively characterizes the enduring nature of Armenian contradictions in which “everything you’ve heard is true, everything you’ve heard is false.”


Highfire

It’s a fun, rip-roaring read that draws you in and leaves you short of breath from both action and laughter. It’s hard not to be captivated.


The Only Child

Good elevator pitch, not so great final result, though I can actually picture a fairly cool movie coming out of this if adapted properly. Netflix, take note.


Hitting a Straight Lick with a Crooked Stick

On literary and ethnographic expeditions, Hurston packed a pistol along with her notepads. These stories share that same wild spirit – unnerving at times, they are always a thrill.


Perfect Little Children

Readers will quickly turn the pages of Perfect Little Children to discover whether those things really are there.


In the Land of Men

If you’re a devotee of David Foster Wallace, you’ll devour this memoir with pleasure. If not, you may enjoy the cultural scavenger hunt and appreciate how much Adrienne Miller makes you stretch.


A Beautiful Crime
Bookreporter : A Beautiful Crime (February 01, 2020)

The setting is marvelous. Venice isn’t just a scenic background for the action of A Beautiful Crime. Its capricious tides and twisty, deceptive geography seem to mirror the characters’ secrets and intrigues.


Perfect Little Children

Perfect Little Children is one of the most ingenious psychological thrillers I have ever read, and the ending is completely satisfying.


Not So Pure and Simple

Hilariously necessary.


The Gimmicks

The result is engrossing, but McCormick doesn't quite get the ratio right. Fewer gimmicks, ultimately, would have served The Gimmicks well.


Little Gods
Publishers Weekly : Little Gods (January 14, 2020)

This is a beautiful, intensely moving debut.


Africaville

This is a penetrating, fresh look at the indomitable spirit of black pioneers and their descendants.


Anyone
Kirkus Reviews : Anyone (December 03, 2019)

An imaginative, time-fragmented thriller about the bitter and potentially deadly consequences of body-snatching.


The Devil’s Due
Kirkus Reviews : The Devil's Due (November 01, 2019)

Loose-limbed, prodigiously inventive, plotted with infernal logic, and riotously implausible from beginning to end.
