Excerpt from The Atomic City Girls

Excerpt from The Atomic City Girls

I have just started reading The Atomic City Girls, by Janet Beard. In searching it up on Amazon just now, and realized that there is also a book called The Girls of Atomic City, on the same subject, so be aware if you are looking it up that there are two very similar books out there. The Atomic City Girls is billed as a novel and The Girls of Atomic City as a true story ...
Excerpt from Winter in Paradise

Excerpt from Winter in Paradise

I picked up Winter in Paradise by Elin Hilderbrand, which was billed as a mystery, but it is far closer to literary or domestic thriller so far. There is no investigation into the death of the main character's husband and the others in the helicopter with him, and I'm not even sure at this point that they're actually dead. Things are very suspicious ...

Excerpt from What if?

Excerpt from What if?

After much consideration, I have decided to go with What if? I don't do a lot of non-fiction teasers here, but I love xkcd, and after the first few entries in What if? I can say that his humor and brilliance flow through in these Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions ...

Excerpt from Every Breath You Take

Excerpt from Every Breath You Take

I am currently working on Every Breath You Take by Mary Higgins Clark, the Queen of Suspense. This is book 5 in the Under Suspicion series. I have read at least two others in this series, and am enjoying the building of the case. Laurie Moran and her family and associates are familiar and fun to read, but I wish she would get back together with Alex ...

Excerpt from I Let You Go

Excerpt from I Let You Go

I am re-reading I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh this week. I had to check to see if I had done an excerpt on it here before, but it doesn't look like I have. This is a domestic thriller/police procedural mashup about the hit-and-run killing of a five-year-old boy. Despite the fact that I figured out most of the twists ahead of time, it was still an enjoyable read. It is well-written and intriguing, even if you know the plot ahead of time. ...
Excerpt from Two Kinds of Truth

Excerpt from Two Kinds of Truth

I have just finished reading Michael Connelly's Two Kinds of Truth, a Harry Bosch novel. Maybe some of you are watching Bosch on Amazon. According to Wikipedia, the 2019 season was based on Two Kinds of Truth. Don't worry, I'm not going to spoil it for you (assuming the tv series follows the novel.) ...
Excerpt from I've Got my Eyes on You

Excerpt from I’ve Got my Eyes on You

I just finished reading I've Got my Eyes on You by Mary Higgins Clark. The Queen of Suspense is always good for for an interesting murder mystery, and does not disappoint with this police procedural. There are plenty of suspects in this book, and while I guessed the perp early on, I still enjoyed the telling of the story ...
Excerpt from Dangerous Minds

Excerpt from Dangerous Minds

Right now, I am reading Dangerous Minds by Janet Evanovich. It is the second book in the Knight and Moon series, and I have actually read the first one as well. I love the characters in this book. Evanovich writes lots of fun, quirky characters, and does not disappoint in this series. We've got an eccentric billionaire and the practical woman who tires without success to keep him stable and down to earth. There is a monk who has lost his island, and the billionaire's cousin, a hanger-on who is eccentric in his own rite. Put it together with an international threat, a secret society, and of course the missing (stolen) island, and you've got an Evanovich classic ...
Excerpt from The Camel Club

Excerpt from The Camel Club

I have just started reading The Camel Club by David Baldacci. I have read one or two other books in the Camel Club series. There are some good characters; I am particularly enjoying the OCD member of the club, Milton Farb. But I am partial to characters with neurodiversities. Baldacci is always good for suspense and well-structured plots and clues. Lots of action and thrills. ...
Excerpt from The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window And Disappeared

Excerpt from The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window And Disappeared

I am currently reading The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window And Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson. This is not like most of the other books that I have read. The book that I have read that it is most similar to is Catch-22 by Joseph Heller. Or maybe Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy set in WWII Europe. It is the ridiculous adventure of an audacious Swede who runs into trouble and makes new friends at every turn. Both jinxed and charmed, you never know what's going to happen to Allan Karlsson next. ...

Excerpt from Beautiful Boy

Excerpt from Beautiful Boy

Last week I read Beautiful Boy by David Sheff. This is a tough book, a memoire of his son's addiction too meth. If you have a family member with an addiction, you'll find a friend in Sheff. He puts it all out there, the guilt, the worry and anxiety, imagining what might have happened to him every time he disappeared. He goes through the stages of not knowing, telling himself it wasn't so bad, and then Nic's rapid downward spiral and cycles of recovery and relapse. ...
Excerpt from A Stranger in the House

Excerpt from A Stranger in the House

I am just finishing up with A Stranger in the House by Shari Lapena. It's a psychological thriller with three "unreliable" main characters. You know that someone is lying (or everyone is lying) but figuring out what has actually happened is the trick. There are a lot of twists and turns. I'm right at the ending, and I'm not surprised, but it wasn't what I expected! ...

Excerpt from The Fallen
