• Book review: Black Irish by Stephan Talty

    Black Irish by Stephan Talty. I saw this book on some website or other and it looked good, so I bought it. It’s a really excellent thriller. The basic premise is that Abbie Kearney, a police detective in Buffalo, NY,…

  • Not entirely a book review, but it is

    I just finished the third book in Lisa Shearin’s SPI files. They are so fun. I read the first one, The Grendel Affair, when it first came out. I bought the second, The Dragon Conspiracy, and then somehow forgot about…

  • Book Review: Wrapped in Red

    Received from Netgalley. This book is actually two novellas about Christmas, both contemporary romances. I don’t really have a lot to say about them. I found them fine, but not really all that appealing to me on an emotional level.…

  • Book review: The Society Lilith Saintcrow

    I received this book from NetGalley. I enjoy reading Lilith Saintcrow. I was looking forward to The Society quite a bit and sadly found myself disappointed. It has a terrific premise, but it wasn’t executed as well as I hoped…

  • Book review: Shadow Fall

    I’m way behind on book reviews. Way behind. I counted. I have at least nine books that I’ve read and haven’t yet written my reviews. Some of the books were really good, some less so, some really less so. I’ll…
