Book Review: The Three Beths by Jeff Abbott

The Three Beths by Jeff Abbott

The Three Beths is a standalone novel by Jeff Abbott, the author of the popular Sam Capra series. When I got asked to review the book, I picked it up because I love the author’s series, so I knew I’d be in for a good ride. The story follows Mariah Dunning, who has been suffering greatly, along with her father, due to her mom’s disappearance. Not only that, but they also had to deal with the police not believing her dad that he had nothing to do with Beth leaving them. He certainly didn’t kill her. So when Mariah sees her […] Read more »

Book Review: The Lies We Told by Camilla Way

The Lies We Told by Camilla Way

I’ve read The Lies We Told by Camilla Way back in August with a request to review it in October. What I would usually do in this case is review it right after reading and keeping the post in the Drafts until October. However, with holidays and lots of stuff happening during the last two months, it slipped my mind. So now, I’ll try to write the review from memory, as sadly I forgot a lot of details. But the overall impression of a well-crafted psychological thriller with lots and lots of secrets involved remained with me ever since. There […] Read more »

Book Review: A Killer’s Mind by Mike Omer

A Killer's Mind by Mike Omer

I was in the mood for some serial-killer thrillers, so I picked up A Killer’s Mind by Mike Omer on a whim. I was not quite sure what to expect since this author was new to me, but after finishing the story, I have just added Mike Omer as one of my new favorite thriller authors. A Killer’s Mind is the first book in a new series titled Zoe Bentley (which is the name of one of the two main characters in the book). Zoe is a civilian, however, she is consulting with the FBI as a forensic psychologist, many […] Read more »

Book Review: Tailspin by Sandra Brown

Tailspin by Sandra Brown

Tailspin is the latest standalone novel by one of my favorite romantic suspense author, Sandra Brown. In fact, her books were the first I’ve ever started to read in this genre. This was back in the early 1990s, and as they say, the rest is history. Now, reading the Sandra Brown books in order is very easy because she is probably the only romantic-suspense novelist who doesn’t write book series. I was eagerly looking forward to seeing Tailspin on Netgalley, so I was thrilled when Grand Central Publishing offered me an eBook copy to read and review. After all, I […] Read more »

Book Review: Political Dirty Trick by James R. Callan

Political Dirty Trick by James R. Callan

Political Dirty Trick by James R. Callan gives us a glimpse into what is really going on during political campaigns. While sometimes the right candidates get elected, at times the political dirty tricks swing the pendulum enough for the other party to win. Crystal Moore flies to Texas to help her long-time family friend Ron Drake, who is campaigning to become the next governor. He is clearly the best candidate for the job, and the polls are there to prove it. When the difference between the two candidates becomes too big, someone figures the only way to stop his backing is a […] Read more »

Book Review: The Gone World by Tom Sweterlitsch

The Gone World by by Tom Sweterlitsch

I’ve just finished reading The Gone World by Tom Sweterlitsch, and I’m still confused by many aspects of it. The book is a mix of thriller and sci-fi time-travel story. If focuses on Shannon Moss, an FBI agent working for a secret brand of the NCIS which is dealing with time and space travel. She is sent to the future to investigate a possible ending of the world through something called the Terminus. For Shannon, it all starts in 1977 when she is investigating the gruesome murder of a family which incidentally lived in the same house her best friend […] Read more »

Book Review: Caught in Time by Julie McElwain

Caught in Time Kendra Donovan Julie McElwain

Caught in Time by Julie McElwain is the third novel in the Kendra Donovan historical mystery series with a time-travel element. I first started reading this series because it was advertised as a time-travel mystery. I love both time travel and murder mysteries, so I was pretty sure I would be in for a wild ride. The first book, A Murder in Time, was indeed a time-travel story. Kendra Donovan, an FBI agent, while pursuing a villain, jumps through a wormhole that takes her to 1815 to England. In the first book, it was all about her adjusting to her […] Read more »

Book Review: Chasing Ivan by Tim Tigner

Chasing Ivan Tim Tigner

Chasing Ivan is a prequel novella in a spy thriller series by a new author to me, Tim Tigner. After recently reading Mark Dawson’s latest John Milton book, I got in the mood once again to read spy and political thrillers. You know, those in the veins of Jason Bourne, Jack Reacher, Pike Logan, Mitch Rapp, and so on. But I wanted to read something new, to find new authors. And find I did. First I picked up Ben Coes’s Dewey Andreas series, and having finished the latest book, a related Goodreads screen showed me the Kyle Achilles series by […] Read more »

Book Review: Shooting Gallery by Ben Coes

Shooting Gallery Ben Coes

I’m a huge spy-thriller fan, and I’ve been meaning to read the Dewey Andreas series by Ben Coes for a while now. I know that a new book is being released later this year with the title Bloody Sunday, so I got all the previous books, loaded them on my iPad and took them with me on my holidays abroad to read. Currently, the latest published book is a short novella titled Shooting Gallery, with Bloody Sunday to be published next month in July. Now, Shooting Gallery is just a short story, but it’s just as action-packed as the author’s […] Read more »

Book Review: Redeemer by Mark Dawson

Redeemer by Mark Dawson

After a one-year wait, finally, the latest John Milton book is here. I first learned about Mark Dawson last year, when I literally binge-read all the previous 11 books in the series. Once I read everything, it felt strange to no longer have a new John Milton book to pick up. It was absolutely a blast reading the Mark Dawson books in order for his John Milton series, which were followed by Beatrix Rose and Isabella Rose. This year, while waiting for the latest Milton book, I also picked up the Group Fifteen Files novellas, which are some great fillers […] Read more »
