Now the formidable team of Scarpetta and Benton take on a vicious killer, the FBI, a nasty financial company, and have a good time doing it with Marino and Lucy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stuff to steal., 25 Oct. 2013

This review is from: Choose Life (Kindle Edition)
The only problem for a preacher reading these sermons by Archbishop Rowan Williams is the temptation to lift whole passages for one's own use. What a feast! Christmas dinner for the soul and Easter too.

The great polymath Bernard Lonergan is said to have declared, "If you care about the poor, study economic theory!" Kathryn Tanner has put forward a thesis on macroeconomic matters that hits hard, whether you are a person of faith or not. Should be required reading at the major business schools.

5.0 out of 5 stars Forward to the past, 25 Oct. 2013

I don't know how Conn Iggulden manages to turn out historical fiction that feels so real, from Genghis Khan to Ancient Rome to the War of the Rose. But he does, and this installment of the rise of the Caesars is in the grand style. Now I have to wait for the next book in the series... hope it's not too long.

Writing a mystery backwards is a stunt, in one sense. But in the hands of a master like Deaver, it becomes a new way of getting the reader to turn pages.

4.0 out of 5 stars Maggie does it again, 1 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nicely-plotted novel with lots of atmosphere. Dog lovers will be thrilled, and Maggie O'Dell fans as well. Another Albert Stucky villain, really loathsome, and a cool dog handler too, come into play.

5.0 out of 5 stars another one in the can..., 31 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lee Child just keeps turning them out. Page turners, can't-put-it-down Jack Reacher novels. Great plot twists, fight scenes, love stories a little bit sideways. OK a lot sideways, in The Affair. I just wish the movie hadn't starred Tom Cruise...


The Racing Factions: A Crossroads Brotherhood Novella from the bestselling author of the VESPASIAN series (The Crossroads Brotherhood Book 1)
The Racing Factions: A Crossroads Brotherhood Novella from the bestselling author of the VESPASIAN series (The Crossroads Brotherhood Book 1)
Price: £1.19

5.0 out of 5 stars if you like..., 13 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
... tales of Ancient Rome, this is a crackling story, an offshoot of Fabbri's Vespasian series. Never try to put one over on the Brotherhood!

This review is from: Last Battle (Hardcover)
Who knew? German Wehrmacht, French Resistance, and GIs fight the SS in Austria. Brilliantly told, researched. Buy this book — really. Needs to be translated into French and German!

This review is from: Gone Girl (Kindle Edition)
Flynn has a particular stylistic gimmick: get into the head of a warped personality and make that character the protagonist. Cool and unsettling.
