Man Of The Hour -- Peter Blauner

Here is a novel that everyone in America should read. Why? Not just because it is timely, well-written, and enjoyable, but also because of its subject matter. Man Of The Hour was published in 1999. It is about a young disaffected Palestinian youth who joins an extremist Muslim terrorist group and a... Sign in to see full entry.

Gridlinked -- Neil Asher

When I was a teenager, I escaped onto other worlds with the help of great science fiction authors. Their words transported me through time and space to alien worlds and galaxies aboard mysterious ships that never failed to appeal to my imagination. I grew up in the worlds of H. Beam Piper and Isaac... Sign in to see full entry.

Chaos Theory -- Gary Krist

Having read Gary Krist's first novel, Bad Chemistry, I thought I'd give his second attempt a try. And I'm glad I did. Chaos Theory is about how life can turn upside down simply on a seemingly innocuous decision. Two teenagers decide to go to the rough side of the District of Columbia to by some...

Valley Of Bones -- Michael Gruber

Michael Gruber's critically acclaimed debut, Tropic of Night, won him literary praise. His second novel packs a helluva punch also. Valley Of Bones brings back the characters we met in the first novel, except the dead ones (and a couple of them are mentioned), except one -- Jane Doe. She is replaced... Sign in to see full entry.

Tropic Of Night -- Michael Gruber

Ever read the flap of a book and want to read it. Sure you have; that is why publishers print stuff there in the first place. Well, in the case of this book, I was reading the flap of his second novel, which praised his first novel so much, I picked up Michael Gruber's Tropic Of Night. Why? Well,...

Reliquary -- Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child

Ever read The Relic? For those of you who have seen only the movie version, it pales in comparion to the novel that preceded it. The movie was pretty good, but falls short of the overall involvement you feel with and for the characters while you experience their experiences with them. But enough of...

The Madman's Tale -- John Katzenbach

I am a fan of John Katzenbach. His novel, The Traveler, was an exceptional read on serial killing. His novel, Just Cause, was one of the best crime thrillers I have ever read (the movie was good, but they changed so many things in the movie that it was unrecognizable as anything other than a loosely...

Tripwire -- Lee Child

I know, I know, but I love this character, Jack Reacher. Tripwire is the third book in Child's series about an ex-MP who just drifts around the country where he was born and served in a military capacity for most of his life, a country for which he feels some sort of disconnection. He's big. He's... Sign in to see full entry.

Call The Devil By His Oldest Name -- Sallie Bissell

Sometimes you grab a book by an unknown author (maybe one not unknown to others, but just yourself) because you like its title and begin reading. Sometimes you discover a rare find. Sometimes you discover a dud. In this case, intrigued by such a great title and the fact that the protagonist, a... Sign in to see full entry.
