5-0 out of 5 stars Baldacci's best
I'm quite sure, and I've read almost all of his books, this is his best yet. Brilliant plot, very believable characters. Best book this year since I read Bob Collins' "Ambassador Strikes."

5-0 out of 5 stars Perhaps Baldacci's Best Yet. Sit Back and Enjoy This One!
David Baldacci's ensemble of fascinating and brilliantly created characters in `The Collectors' coupled with two intertwining plots of murder and a clever financial con make for a completely enjoyable and page-turning read.Following his best selling hit `The Camel Club' with some familiar faces and the addition of the sultry yet incorrigibly scandalous Annabelle Conroy, readers will be continually amused and entertained as Baldacci, as if a grand maestro, intertwines and blends the character action and movement with such ease and storyline pleasure.As usual and expected in Baldacci's novels, readers will be left turning the pages, in this case as the plot moves to a very interesting conclusion when the World of Washington politics and those involved with a long-term swindle are forced to collide. Folks, sit back and enjoy `The Collectors', it very well may be David Baldacci's best yet. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Patterson is great
James Patterson and Andrew Gross have another great novel in Judge and Jury, along with a previous combined effort, Lifeguard.

4-0 out of 5 stars Loved the ending
I read all of Patterson's books--even those he co-writes which perhaps means he's not the writer. But I enjoy most of them for what they are--fun to read. And in this one, I loved the ending. It made me smile. And to me, that helps to make it a good book and a fun story.
1-0 out of 5 stars buy it at a garage sale
James patterson aka whoever he is writing with at the moment has totally lost it... shallow plot, no in depth characters, really not much of a story. i didnt want to buy it but my neighbor insisted. it was her first patterson novel.. anyway, he is laughing all the way to the bank.. bad book.i didnt even finish the first 100 pages, thank goodness Target takes back books or i would be out 20.00. thank you . lisa baker. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Old Harry
I just finished reading Echo Park and really enjoyed it.I like the way Michael Connelly keeps the action moving and keeps the reader wondering what is going to happen next.I usually have some of the villians identified but in this case I did not see Abel Pratt involved in the plot.I too feel it would have been good to see what happened to those corrupt people.However, I used my imagination which perhaps is what the author intended.

2-0 out of 5 stars What a disappointment!
Having read several of Connelly's books, I expected this one to be a cut above the usual crime thriller genre.I was sorely disappointed.Although the plot is somewhat interesting, the characterizations are weak and there is just too much tough cop talk and unbelievable heroics.The narration is weak, especially the personification of the FBI agent girlfriend, which is absolutely grating.I did finish it, but wish I could get my money back.

5-0 out of 5 stars Harry Bosch remains one of the best cop characters in fiction
Settling in with a new Harry Bosch book by Michael Connelly is like getting together with an old, close friend you haven't seen in a long while.Harry is still with LAPD's Open-Unsolved Unit along with his partner, Kiz Ridder. Returning to the police force after a short, unsatisfying retirement, Harry still looks at cases from long ago, cases that he had a hand in, but were never solved.

1-0 out of 5 stars A fading voice
Unfortunately the Sid Halley of old did not appear on a single page of Under Orders.The edgy, brilliant jockey-turned-investigator has turned into a boring, spectacularly non-verbal character who tells us things the Sid Halley of the earlier books would have ridiculed.For example, he describes for us his evening meal in long-winded, elementary school level prose.This may just be the natural end foretold in the previous books: over time the books became blander and sometimes boring.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great to have Francis back
It is great to have Dick Francis (and Sid Halley) back. Unlike other reviewers, I think it is obvious that the person who wrote this DID write the other Francis (and Halley) books.

1-0 out of 5 stars Sadly disapointing
I was so looking forward to a new Sid Halley story.What a disapointment.Who wrote this mess?It doesn't have the tone of the author's previous books.The same characters are back but with totally different personalities. Their behaviours and dialogs just do not mesh with the earlier Sid Halley stories.Is Mr. Francis past his writing prime or did his late wife write the earlier books?I suggest taking this out of the library instead of purchasing it. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Weak and disappointing..
I never miss an Evanovich book.She is the only author I actually buy in harcover.I want my money back !!!This is a pale shadow of her usual writing.Maybe her publisher was pressuring her for a book so she tossed this one off.I don't know but I do know I was very disappointed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Read!
This book is really funny and a quick read.This would be a good book to take on vacation or lounge by the pool because it is light and funny.I like all of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum books and also Metro Girl, so I felt this book was comparable to those.If you want a laugh, this book is for you!

5-0 out of 5 stars Another great book by Evanovich!
I LOVED Motor Mouth!It was such a fun read and I greatly enjoyed the characters.Being a NASCAR fan, I love the theme of these books even more.I greatly enjoyed Metro Girl, but have to say that I loved this one even more!I can't wait for the next Evanovich to come out!!I look forward to each of her releases and have yet to be disappointed!I highly recommend this one for a fun read full of laughs! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Flagg does Southern Justice
Can't Wait to Get to Heaven is Fannie Flagg's best work. It is southern fiction at its finest, which is quite a compliment because when it's done right, it's amazing. We're back in Elmwood Springs with characters we know and love, and Flagg's characterization is pristine. This book is funny, touching and quirky. She's managed to create a town most people would love to live in with down-home charm and a dash of trouble.
5-0 out of 5 stars Some books are just plain fun
Sometimes you want to read a novel that just makes you feel better. And if you are in that mood, you'd be hard pressed to find a better one than this. Here you don't expect to find terrorists blowing things up, you don't find all kinds of grief and sadness. Instead you find an interesting group of characters from a small southern town with concerns like 'will the world end before I get to collect Social Security.'
2-0 out of 5 stars Not as good as past novels
I love Fannie Flagg's writing - and have enjoyed her past books.Sadly - this time around - this title does not measure up to her usual fine quality. Her past novels were glib, engaging, heartfelt... This installment is flat.Great characters - but they don't go anywhere.I have loved her past works - folksy, charming, real characters that you wish you knew.In the past - I could not put down her books and could not wait for this to come out.This one - I literally put down half way through.I was disappointed. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars 4 1/2 Stars
I thought this to be a fascinating and sometime graphic thriller. This is my first experience with Tess Gerritsen and will most likely read more from this author. As mentioned elsewhere, the characters backgrounds were shyed away from, and since I have not read any of her previous novels, I was sometimes a bit stymied. An entertaining read nonetheless.

5-0 out of 5 stars Another Gem from Tess Gerritsen!
The Mephisto Club is a very fast paced novel, which is my favorite type of story.It brings back the recurrent main characters of Detective Jane Rizzoli and Dr. Maura Isles.This time Detective Rizzoli and Dr. Isles are dealing with an exceeding violent killer who murders his victims in a ritualistic fashion leaving clues that link him to the occult/supernatural.Is the killer a demon or is he merely a brillian sociopath who taunts his victims and the police alike?That is the question facing Detective Rizzoli and Dr. Isles as they try to track him.
5-0 out of 5 stars Chilling!
I liked The Mephisto Club best of the books in this fine series.If you've liked any of the earlier books, you should definitely read this one.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good But Slow
The first book by Sandra Brown that I read was Chill Factor and really enjoyed it. Ricochet was a good book, but slow in the middle. I will definitely read more of her books.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent story!
This is definitely one of her better romantic suspense stories.She's definitely back to the Mirror Image type romantic suspense. This definitely had more romance than Chill Factor.I thought the romance between Elise and Duncan was passionate and really heartfelt. I truly believed they loved each other.
3-0 out of 5 stars poor character development has me ricocheting between reading Sandra's next book or not
I have read all Sandra Brown's suspense/romance novels so I feel justified in saying that although Ricochet was a better read than White Hot or Chill Factor, I was again bothered by the poor character development. Duncan was a fairly well developed character--DeeDee somewhat better, but not much for any other players. The concept of ricocheting between the lies and deceit carried out by Elise, an unreliable character, is too much to ask of the reader.I am personally insulted that I was cheated out of the inner workings of Elise's mind, thoughts, and force fed her version of everything. The concept in writing is, "show don't tell." None of that here!

5-0 out of 5 stars Superior LeCarre and a superior novel
For most long-time LeCarre fans, the question is not "should I buy this one" but rather how does it rate with his other works.Happily, this continues his strong recent showing and return to form in "The Constant Gardener" and "Absolute Friends."While "The Constant Gardener" had a compelling plot and "Absolute Friends" was perhaps stronger on characterization, "The Mission Song" manages to do well in both categories.Although both "Gardener" and "Friends" had their critics, I found LeCarre's new-found political commitments providing a logical and compelling direction for his fiction in the post-Cold-War era. Not all readers will agree, of course, depending probably largely on their own political views, but there seemed to be a loss of direction in the middle works such as "The Little Drummer Girl" and "Russia House." But it seems as if the current rancid state of world affairs, brought about largely by the lunatics in charge of this country and their UK facilitators, has energized LeCarre and prompted some of his best novels since the early classics.
3-0 out of 5 stars Naive hero fails to convince
The orphaned love child of a Catholic missionary priest and a Congolese woman, the narrator of Le Carre's 20th book, Bruno Salvador (Salvo), grew up resourceful and compliant in Congo's Catholic missions. Rejected by both white and black classmates, sexually abused by the priests, he seeks refuge in the servants' quarters where he listens spellbound to their tales and absorbs their tribal languages.
5-0 out of 5 stars Bravo! Le Carre
Not since The Tailor of Panama has Mr. Le Carre depicted his characters with such bravura!A timely piece of work with all, and I mean all, of Le Carre's trademark intrigue and humour.Loved it and recommend it highly to anyone that enjoys an excellent read.Boy, does he use the language in a superior way.A joy to behold! ...

4-0 out of 5 stars A Really Pacy Novel
It may be a little known fact, but James Patterson has written more best selling titles in the past five years than Dan Brown, J.K. Rowling, Tom Clancy and John Grisham put together. He is one of a handful of authors whose sales have been growing over the past two years, even though best selling fiction sales in general have been declining.
2-0 out of 5 stars This serie is getting worse each book...
I enjoyed the first 3 books of the Women's Murder Club. Didn't like too much the 4th (of July), but the 5th is just BAD ! What's the plot ? There is no plot ! 2 serial-killer stories try to share the pages of this not-such-a-page-turner, the 1st mystery (Car Girls) get solved mid-way throught the book and I bet plenty of readers won't remember it by the end of this painfull read... By trying to develop 2 stories, Patterson gets our interest for none. The most sad thing of all is that I used to like to Women's Murder Club members, but now they all seem so unreal, remote from anything actually likeable. And it's been the case since one of them died and another one joined the club, in the most stupid, artificial way really. Not much to save this book, it's even badly written. Don't know if Patterson thinks about writting a 6th, but don't count on me next time !

2-0 out of 5 stars Stinko
I give it two stars only because the two mystery's are decent.This is some of the worst writting I have found in a long time of reading.The dialogue is totally unrealistic and the writing is awful.I don't know how much Patterson had to do with this book but he should be ashamed.I ask youhow many women do you know that use a term like "skirt hound" for a man who chases women?I actually listen to this book as an unabridged audio, thinking it would sound better than it read...silly me!It was even worst because I had to hear the actor read the awful dialogue.Even my wife, who is a big Patterson fan, disliked this one. ...

Editorial Review

Dr. Eldon Mate, a.k.a. Dr. Death, has been the bane of the Los AngelesD.A.'s existence, the bête noir of all opposed to assisted suicide, and theangel of mercy to countless "travelers" who have gone to their reward via Mate's good offices. He's also turned up in the back of his van, attached to his own death-dealing "Humanitron" machine and too far away from most of his blood and a certain external organ.Read more

This was the kind of book that made me go WHEW! when I got to the end. LOTS of tension between Alex and Milo - Alex is lucky Milo is such a nice guy.
5-0 out of 5 stars ANOTHER ALEX DELAWARE HIT!
Having read all the previous Alex Delaware mysteries, starting this book felt like a good friend coming to visit.I know all the "good guy" players and I'm happy to see them again.The mystery part is always good and keeps me guessing--I read for entertainment and really don't try very hard to guess.All in all, I wasn't disappointed by Alex Delaware.However, I do think he's not paying enough attention to Robin and this could spell trouble for the relationship.

2-0 out of 5 stars A Fish Out Of Water

1-0 out of 5 stars BEWARE Lynley & Havers fans -they aren't in this book! Don't buy it!
How could Elizabeth George even think of letting her fans down like this? I've never before been moved to write a review but this book is a literary crime that cannot go unpunished!(Wish it had gone unpublished though.) Ever since I read George's first Lynley mystery, I've bought each subsequent new one as it was released. I've never been disappointed - until now. That's not to say I don't have some gripes with George; I do. For one, she's long-winded and seems to get more so with every passing book. Readers don't need a description of every locale on a given London road to believe that the author, self-consciously and insurmountably American, has been there. More irritatingly though, and no doubt stemming from the same self-consciousness, her overuse of Brit vernacular and colloquialisms is forced and rings false compared with true British writers, who have no need to prove where they are from. But to her credit, she has created a cast of winning characters and I tune in every time to see what has happened in Lynley's and Havers' worlds. Especially after the last book shockingly killed off a major character, we deserved to be rewarded for waiting and plunking down our money. I want to know how Lynley is coping with the death of his wife, and what is happening with emotionally-scarred Deborah, who was first on the crime scene? And what about Barbara Havers, the character with whose creation George struck pure gold? Both Havers' professional and private lives are utterly engaging ongoing sagas (when will she get together with that neighbor of hers?) and I feel completely ROBBED not to have received the next installment. Worse yet is the book itself, which I dumped after a tedious first chapter (and after I flipped through the rest of it thinking I could find the parts with Lynley et al. Trust me, they aren't there).George's attempt to write completely outside her milieu and misleadingly foist it on her loyal mystery-reading public strikes me as pretentious and patronizing - towards both the subject and the audience.She is off my "authors to trust for a good read" list. True British mystery lovers, wondering what to read now, might try Kate Atkinson's "Case Histories" and "One Good Turn" for superb writing and storytelling. The latter, her newly published sequel about detective Jackson Brodie, kept me up all night, entertained and awed. If only Ms. George's latest had done the same.

What a let down when I started reading this book, I had been waiting months for the new Elizabeth George novel with Inspector Lynley and all his sidekicks. What do I get? A lesson in class and race and why the disenfranchised have a reason to kill. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Great book to read on a plane
If you have a long flight, you can probably read it in one setting.It is a "pageturner", but, I think it is kind of hyped up for the publicity (lawsuit and movie).

2-0 out of 5 stars Just an Over-rated Mediocre Mystery
At best Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code is just a mediocre modern day mystery with religious conspiracy overtones. The characterization seems like it came straight out of a 70's made for TV movies. If you have read any mysteries before the plot is paper thin, the first time the true villain makes an appearance, it is basically a "well isn't that contrite" moment. But it is a fast EASY reading novel. This book is just fine for lounging on the beach or passing the time on a cross country airline flight.
3-0 out of 5 stars Pulp Fiction
I suppose everything has its fashions, from clothing to cars to literature.The Da Vinci Code seems to be one such literary fashion. Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars [Review and Reflections] The Scorpio Illusion "Morta toda Autoridad" Do you know who is working against you? Who can you trust?
Robert Ludlum's The Scorpio Illusion - A fast paced story of a woman obssessed with "Death to all authority", a very reluctant navy commander willing to help for a price, a secret organization helping with ulterior motives of its own. Amaya Bajaratt, the most notorious of terrorists out of the Baaka Valley, swore "Death to all Authority" as revenge for her lost childhood and her husband's death and she is known for accomplishing the impossible. Now intelligence agencies across four countries need to co-ordinate their efforts to find and stop her while time flies and people die... and they don't even have a picture of the woman. Commander Tyrell Hawthorne, one of the best there was, left the world of undercover and with the efforts of British and French Intelligence he is recruited to help. With the top ranks infilterated by "The Scorpions", Amaya is helped through different situations and assisted towards her goal -- none other than killing the President of United States of America. As the clock ticks towards D-day and people co-ordinating start dying, its a battle between brains and brawn.. leading to a nail biting conclusion. Robert Ludlum keeps you coming back for more.

1-0 out of 5 stars Laughably bad
This book deserves NO stars at all.
1-0 out of 5 stars Not worth reading
I read the Bourne books of his and one or 2 others and liked them very much. This book was SO unrealistic with unbelievably bad and inappropriate dialogue that I could barely finish it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Dean Koontz always takes his stories to a new level
I have read Dean Koontz since I was in high school almost 15 years ago and I have to say I haven't been disappointed in his books yet.
5-0 out of 5 stars another great book
Koontz has delivered another great book.He is a masterful suspense writer and has written another great book.Of course, not everything is truly plausible, but that's not why I read his books.Koontz books are difficult to put down because they are compelling and the reader wants to know what happens next.

5-0 out of 5 stars Category Five Twister!
"The Husband" shocked me with a twist that had greater torque than any I've read recently.

3-0 out of 5 stars Just read it
Albeit by far this is not the best IJ's book it'll keep you reading. The problem is that a 21 years kid, or young girl, or gal, or filly, or whatever you can call her, makes all the decisions and nobody can't stop her. Not even her parents, or boyfriend, or friends, or anybody. She decides to go after a goon by herself and everybody says: "I don't agree but I can't stop you". I think that this is a little bit far fetched. And at the end. The book doesn't have an end. So if you'll decide to read this book, just read it with out thinking too much and maybe you'll enjoy it.

4-0 out of 5 stars You guys are tough!!!
I listen to books as I commute - and Iris Johansen is one of my favorites.Although Countdown is not as good as the Eve Duncan series was, it is still alright.Jane MacGuire has grown up and it is pretty obvious that Ms. Johansen intends for Jane to take Eve's place as her new leading character, but Jane certainly has not gotten off to the same start as Eve did.The story line is not any worse than the previous Jane/Mark Trevor encounter was and neither of these last 2 books were as well written as the Eve Duncan series was.But I am an Eve Duncan fan and I am hoping there will be one last tale before Ms. Johansen completely retires Eve Duncan and Joe Quinn.As for those that didn't care for this book - try some of the Eve Duncan series - you will change your mind about this author.

3-0 out of 5 stars Reviews by Nan Kilar and Bobby Miller
This is a continuation of Blind Alley, which I reviewed some time ago and mentioned there were plenty of unanswered questions for another book. It is now four years later, Jane MacGuire is at Harvard, and during an attempt to kidnap her, her childhood friend is killed. Then Mark Trevor shows up out of nowhere and convinces her to return to Scotland with him so he can protect her. She doesn't totally trust him, but can't deny her physical feelings for him. The problem is: Trevor has the scrolls and knows where the gold is; the really bad guys are after Trevor and think they can get to him through Jane.
