    There’s a slate of familiar villains in Private—mobsters, assassins, serial killers. And there’s a new breed of villains, gamers, who with the advanced technology of spy-bots, take the violence of their virtual world outside the realm of their Internet games and bring it into the real world with fatal results

    On the cover of the book, we read that the New York Times Book Review says of the author:"Miyabe forte is suspense" while Kodansha, the publisher, boasts that she is "Japan's #1 Bestselling Mystery writer."  They both know what they talk about and Miyabe, indeed, deserves to some extent the commendations. She proves it in the Sleeping Dragon under review here....

    Author: Noah Friedland
    ISBN: 978-1449976798

    Noah Friedland's debut novel, A House Divided brings to the world of political thrillers a new twist; instead of Israelis fighting Arabs, we have Israelis in a deadly power struggle among themselves that have dire and unforeseen consequences

    Author: R. J. McDonnell
    Publisher:  Killeena Publishing
    ISBN: 978-0-9814914-2-4

    You may approach it with some misgivings like I did—the title sounds too much like the first book, so you wonder.  Don’t.  McDonnell still tells an entertaining story, if not so funny this time

    Author: David Stokes
    ISBN: 978-1-935456117

    This book is a story that will thrill and chill you to the bone.  It is a wonderful blend and you will think that you are reading excellent fiction in some places.  It takes place during the post World War I era and the first oil boom in Texas

    Author:  Lauren Henderson
    ISBN:  978-0-385-73777-7

    This is the third book in the YA series starring "Scarlett Wakefield," and it's just as good, if not better, than books I and II

    Author:  Jackie Fullerton

    The story is a fun and uncomplicated read - perhaps a good mystery to take to the beach

    Author:  Dennis Palumbo
    Publisher: Tallfellow® Press, Inc
    ISBN: 978-1-931290-60-9

    Entertaining, witty and up to the moment, this collection of short stories is well worth the read, and might even inspire you to start your own focus group!     

    Author: Steve Chandler
    ISBN: 978-1-934759-40-0

    A very good murder mystery but, the murder mystery got caught up in all the "Life Coaching" and that took a lot away from the book for me

    Author: Duane De Mello
    ISBN: 978-1-4392-6009-8

    If you enjoy reading novels about terrorists, Duane De Mello's The Wave of the Future is a real doozy!

    Exploiting the dark menace of the supernatural as well as lurid dreams, Superstition is a fast paced harrowing tale that not only you can't put it down, but you don't dare put it down, as it unravels through a series of increasingly hair pin twists and turns

    Author: Robert M. Brown, Jr.

    “A Thriller From Start To Finish”

    Publisher: Langdon Street Press

    Author: Tempest O’Rourke
    Publisher: Synergy Books
    ISBN: 978-0-9823140-3-6

    There are many lessons to be learned here.  The author has a wealth of real world experience behind him and this translates well to the written page.  He has constructed a thriller with philosophical meat, unusual for our times.  The negatives I have mentioned do not distract from this first-rate page turner.  I found it an excellent read.  Try it

    Author: D. M. Annechino
    ISBN: 978-098255503-3

    This novel provided me with a comfortable evening sitting in my recliner and sipping my Jameson’s.  But I’m not sure this kind of suspense novel should be “comfortable.”  Deaver at his best is not comfortable.  Harris’ Hannibal is not comfortable.  Annechino’s story lacks that twist that leaves you breathless and wondering about the evil side of genius.On the other hand, this story ranks right up there with some of Deaver’s and Patterson’s work (which recently has become somewhat formulistic). I recommend you take a look.  Like I said, it has all the right stuff.

    Author: Jacqueline Winspear
    ISBN:  978-0-06-172766-5

    A new novel starring the beloved investigator Maisie Dobbs has arrived.  And, I can tell you, if you haven’t read her amazing sleuth stories in the past, than you should begin as soon as possible

    Author: Sibella Giorello
    ISBN: 978-1-59554-534-3

    Ms. Giorello did a great job of not telling too much so that the reader would know what is happening but just enough to keep you interested

    Complications abound

    Author: Robert Santoro
    ISBN: 978-1-56-315457-7
    This novel was so busy that I read it in one sitting.  An exciting book, the first in a series about the Deadly Sins.  It certainly makes you want to read all the others

    There is certainly never a dull moment, serving just the right balance of insidious malevolence and innocence.

    Author: Kate White

    Kate White is a pro when it comes to thrills and chills, and Hush reminds us that this writer has skills sharper than a serial killer's blade.

    Author: John F. Dobbyn
    ISBN: 978-1-933515-63-2

    A fantastic legal thriller that will keep you on the edge of your chair throughout.  I couldn't wait to get started and was not disappointed in the least.  The writer obviously knows his characters and tells a tale of murder and mayhem that will fascinate the reader until the last page.

    The serene backdrop of the Adirondack Mountains’ pristine Lake George seems an unlikely place to find the ugly snarl of infidelity, deception and murder, but mystery writer Anne White offers just that in Cold Winter Nights, the fifth in her Lake George Mystery series

    This medical thriller is a heart-pounding page-turner that kept me in my seat until I finished the last page.

    Author: Kathy Herman
    ISBN: 978-1-4347-6785-1

    The Last Word is exceptional. The characters come off as real people living in the real world, trying to figure how to live life as a Christian. They don’t always get it “right.” They make mistakes, deceive themselves and others, make harsh judgments, live in denial, think ugly thoughts and do sinful things

    Authors: Mary Dieter and Tim McClure

    Publisher: Krill Press
    ISBN: 978-0-9821443-3-6

    The Big Grabowski is subtitled A Devil’s Harbor Mystery.  Hopefully this means that there will be more in the series.  I recommend this one for your spring reading, or even to accompany your Irish coffee when the nor’easter is raging outside.  Enjoy it.  I did.

    Authors: Carolyn J. Rose and Mike Nettleton
    ISBN: 978-0-9821443-3-6

    Author: Salvatore Grasso
    ISBN: 978-1-4401-6898-7

    Author: Bill Kimbrell, Jr.
    ISBN: 978-1-4389-7480-4

    A great book full of perfidious acts and characters.  Is that not a great word?  I think it's the author's favorite and I kind of like it myself

    Publisher: Outskirts Press
