Excerpt from An Anonymous Girl

Excerpt from An Anonymous Girl

The other book I am reading right now is Greer Hendricks's and Sarah Pekkanen's An Anonymous Girl. A psychological thriller, Jessica Ferris signs up to participate in a study on ethics and morality, which grows more and more involved and bizarre. Jess is encouraged to share all of her secrets, and she doesn't want to answer all of Dr. Shields' questions, but she needs the money for participating in the study. ...
Excerpt from Killing Floor

Excerpt from Killing Floor

Killing Floor is Lee Child's first Jack Reacher novel. I'm sure that I have read it before. A couple of points have "rung a bell," but otherwise it has been like reading it for the first time. ...

Excerpt from Dark Sacred Night

Excerpt from Dark Sacred Night

I am currently reading Dark Sacred Night by Michael Connelly. It is officially part of the Renee Ballard series, but also features Harry Bosch as well. While there are a number of negative reviews on Amazon, I have enjoyed it so far. Michael Connelly is a master writer, he knows how to build characters the reader cares about and he knows his police procedure ...

Excerpt from Shadow Tyrants

Excerpt from Shadow Tyrants

I am currently reading Shadow Tyrants by Clive Cussler. In case you didn't hear, Clive Cussler, recently passed away, so when I saw the book on my list, it seemed like an appropriate choice. Shadow Tyrants is book 13 in the Oregon Files series. I have read two or three others in the series. Lots of fun tech, adventure, and intrigue. ...
Excerpt from The Family Upstairs

Excerpt from The Family Upstairs

This week I am reading The Family Upstairs, a domestic thriller by Lisa Jewell. There are plenty of twists and turns and misdirection. Several people return to the house they lived in as children, before their escape following the deaths of the adults in the home. All but one know what happened. One needs to find out ...
Excerpt from 61 Hours

Excerpt from 61 Hours

I am re-reading 61 Hours by Lee Child, book 14 in the Jack Reacher series. Like the other Jack Reacher books, it is a well-written suspense book with lots of twists and turns to keep you on your toes. Jack Reacher always stumbles into the strangest circumstances, and 61 Hours is no exception. He also doesn't appreciate the cold of South Dakota winters, and after the weather in Calgary the past week, I can sympathize. It's also one of the few books I've ever read that mentions Chinooks ...
Excerpt from Long Road to Mercy

Excerpt from Long Road to Mercy

I am currently reading The Long Road to Mercy by David Baldacci. Baldacci always writes great police procedurals and thrillers, and so far, The Long Road to Mercy does not disappoint. Atlee Pine, an identical twin who lost her sister in an abduction as a small girl, grows up to become a body builder and FBI agent and in this first book in the series, is investigating the disappearance of a tourist from the Grand Canyon. Of course, he was not actually a tourist, and pursuing the investigation after she's been told to back off could mean the end of her career. ...
Fiction about Human Trafficking

Fiction about Human Trafficking

Did you know that January is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Awareness Month, and January 11 is Human Trafficking Awareness Day? Human Trafficking is a huge industry, in both North America and around the world. With an estimated 40 million victims and generating $150 billion annually, it is not limited to third world countries, and affects people in all classes and industries. Children are particularly vulnerable, especially runaways and those in foster care ...
Excerpt from Before the Fall

Excerpt from Before the Fall

I have been reading Before the Fall, by Noah Hawley. The book begins with the end - protagonist Scott saving a four-year-old boy after their plane goes down in the ocean. It then examines the lives of each of the passengers and how they got there, Scott processing the accident and the investigators trying to figure out what happened. I has been a fascinating story so far. Sensitive readers beware that there is some crude language in this one. ...

Excerpt from Badlands

I just finished reading Badlands, book #3 in C.J. Box's Highway series. I rarely end up reading series in order, but in this case I have actually read books 1 and 2 (in that order!) ...
Excerpt from Dan Brown's Origin

Excerpt from Dan Brown’s Origin

I am currently reading Dan Brown's Origin, Book #5 in the Robert Langdon series (which started with the daVinci Code). As with most Dan Brown, there are plenty of descriptions of art work, architecture, and symbols, with lots of interplay between religion and science. Intrigue, adventure, and plenty of twists and turns. ...
Excerpt from Strangers on the Train

Excerpt from Strangers on the Train

Believe it or not, I have actually never read Strangers on a Train before. I believe I saw the Hitchcock movie, some time ago. Or if not, I have seen enough clips about it to recall it as I am reading the book. I knew the premise of this classic mystery, but it has been interesting, it's actually quite different than I thought it would be. Rather than being a pure mystery, where there is a detective or some other sleuth trying to solve a murder, it is more of a psychological thriller where you know who the murder is, but are waiting to see how they are going to get caught. ...
Excerpt from Force of Nature

Excerpt from Force of Nature

I have just finished reading Force of Nature by Jane Harper. A great thriller about five women who go into the Australian bush and the four who come out. Of course, none of the four knows what happened to Alice. As the story unfolds day by day, we hear each of the women's stories and try to unravel the threads of truth. Well done, keeps you guessing until the end. ...
Excerpt from The Perfect Mother

Excerpt from The Perfect Mother

I am reading The Perfect Mother by Aimee Malloy, a domestic thriller about a kidnapped baby. While the May Mommy group seems on the surface like a very supportive group of friends, there are a lot of secrets and undercurrents, resulting in some interesting twists and turns in the plot. I am interested in seeing how it will all turn out. ...

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.) ...
