Ghost Ship by James Rollins (Sigma Force Series #12.5)

Ghost Ship Sigma Force Series

While reading the latest book in the James Rollins Sigma series, I’ve decided to review Ghost Ship, even though it’s just a tiny novella of hardly 30-pages long. I wanted to read the two books closely together because what happened in Ghost Ship with Seichan and Grey Pierce will bear on the storyline of the next full book. As novellas go, this one is extremely short. However, is is fully fleshed-out, with a somewhat lighter story than we are used to in the usual Sigma books. Seichan and Grey took a half-year sabbatical from the Sigma organization to recover and […] Read more »

The People vs. Alex Cross by James Patterson (Alex Cross #25)

The People vs Alex Cross

The People vs. Alex Cross is the 25th and latest book in the popular Alex Cross series by one of my favorite authors, James Patterson. I was eagerly waiting for it to be published and then I grabbed it right away. Unlike in the previous novels, this time around Alex Cross is on trial on two counts of murder and one attempted murder. Apparently, his killing of a few Gary Soneji lookalikes was unjustified, although he claims innocence. Thankfully before the actual trial, Alex can stay at home without having to go to prison. Btw, to learn about his arrest, you need […] Read more »

The Guise of Another by Allen Eskens

The Guise of Another by Allen Eskens

The Guise of Another is the second book by the author Allen Eskens. The first book, the author’s debut novel was The Life We Bury, and it featured college student Joe Talbert, and to a very small degree, my favorite character by Allen Eskens, Max Rupert. In this book, the main character is Max’s brother, Alex Rupert, who is also a detective with the Minneapolis Police Department, just like Max. Alex’s reputation has been lost and he is painstakingly trying to get it back. He comes across an identity theft case which he hopes will make him the respected cop he […] Read more »

Big Easy Evil by Heather Graham (Cafferty and Quinn #3.7)

Big Easy Evil Heather Graham

Big Easy Evil is the latest offering by the popular romantic suspense author Heather Graham. I have so far read everything the author wrote, except some of the novellas and short stories, so I figured what better way to increase my Goodreads 2017 Reading Challenge count than by reading a few quick stories before the end of the year, including this fun Halloween paranormal tale. The book is part of the Cafferty and Quinn paranormal series. For anyone who hasn’t read this series yet, the books are set in New Orleans and they feature Danni Cafferty and Michael Quinn. Danni is […] Read more »

False Witness by Andrew Grant (Detective Cooper Devereaux #3)

Andrew Grant False Witness

False Witness is the latest installment in the Detective Cooper Devereaux crime mystery series by the author Andrew Grant. The book is published in January 2018 and features the Alabama detective who gets a case which starts standard enough, but turns quite weird as the bodies pile up. A woman disappears on her 21st birthday. Soon she is found dead in a graveyard, wrapped like a sick gift. At this point, Cooper doesn’t know whether it’s a serial killer at work or only someone who held a grudge against the recently murdered woman. Before, she was sliding down a dangerous […] Read more »

Midnight in Death by J.D. Robb (Eve Dallas #7.5)

Midnight in Death

Midnight in Death is a short story in the In Death/Eve Dallas futuristic romantic suspense series by one of my favorite authors, J.D. Robb. I love reading the Eve Dallas books because they are delicious, hot, and absolutely addictive. I thought I have read everything by J.D. Rob so far, but I’ve realized that Midnight in Death novella is one that I haven’t read yet. And with Christmas and New Year being almost upon us, what better time to catch up to it as well than now. My copy is part of the Silent Night collection of stories by renowned romance authors. I […] Read more »

Hardcore Twenty-Four by Janet Evanovich (Stephanie Plum #24)

Janet Evanovich Hardcore Twenty Four

I couldn’t wait for Hardcore Twenty-Four by Janet Evanovich to be released. As soon as the book was released, I bought it and started reading it. Afterall, reading the Janet Evanovich books in order is nothing short of a well-timed holiday away from real life. I’ve been reading this series from the very first book, One for the Money and I still can’t get enough of Stephanie Plum even after all these years. In Hardcore Twenty-Four, Stephanie is dealing with several cases which make her running all over the place. First, we meet Simon Diggery, a grave robber which is nothing […] Read more »

Guilty Blood by Rick Acker

Guilty Blood

Guilty Blood is the latest standalone legal thriller by the author Rick Acker. While the author has two crime-mystery series (each containing two books), his latest novels are all standalones and all legal thrillers (a genre I love). In Guilty Blood, we meet Brandon Ames, a college student who is in the process of studying in his room when he is picked up by the police and booked on suspicion of murder. Whom would he have murdered? He has no idea. When he gets his one phone call, he calls his mom and asks for her help. Jessica Ames is […] Read more »

Tom Clancy Power and Empire by Marc Cameron

Tom Clancy Power and Empire

Tom Clancy’s Power and Empire is the latest book in the Campus series written by Marc Cameron. Reading the Tom Clancy books in order always brings confusions to many people because, while there are several different series in the Tom Clancy Universe, they are more or less interconnected. For example, in Power and Empire, the president Jack Ryan is present, along with the old John Clark, and the Campus group as well. So where do you really place this book, because each group had something going on in Power and Empire? As usual in the Tom Clancy books, here different […] Read more »

Broken Bones by Angela Marsons (D.I. Kim Stone #7)

Broken Bones by Angela Marsons

In Broken Bones, the latest Kim Stone book by Angela Marsons, two seemingly separate cases will intersect in an explosive ending. One heavy-snowing and extremely cold Christmas day, DI Kim Stone finds outside their police headquarters an abandoned baby all nicely tucked in, which shows care for the baby. So what kinds of difficulties can a mom find herself in for her to leave a baby that she seemingly loved so much? Kim is responsible for the baby until Child Protective Services can take care of the newborn. Kim’s Christmas Day proves to be a very strange one, indeed. On […] Read more »
