“Trouble at Tarpon Springs: An Electric Eclectic Book” C.A. Keith

  I love a good crime story, so I was attracted to Trouble at Tarpon Springs: An Electric Eclectic Book by C.A. Keith. Knowing nothing about Tarpon Springs, Florida, I was fascinated by the author’s introduction to the book, specifically the information on the real town of Tarpon Springs. The opening provided a neat way to visualize the settings used in the pages. Keith sets … Continue reading “Trouble at Tarpon Springs: An Electric Eclectic Book” C.A. Keith

Huddled Masses

For some time I have dedicated my blog to book reviews. I have stayed away from “political” issues. There may be people who view this blog as political. What I am addressing are the issues of humanity and injustice. In 1620 Pilgrims from England landed in what has become the United States of America seeking religious freedom. The key word there is “freedom”. The freedom … Continue reading Huddled Masses

“Surrender, New York: A Novel” by Caleb Carr

I loved Caleb Carr’s first two books and thought I would give Surrender, New York a try. The fact that I am from New York, and New Yorker’s don’t surrender, also had something to do with my choice. I’d read the negative reviews, and I thought, how bad could it be? I don’t know what the other reviewers were reading, because I liked this book … Continue reading “Surrender, New York: A Novel” by Caleb Carr

“What Isn’t She Telling” by Michelle Medhat

I was drawn to this book as much by the blurb as by the reviews. The title is compelling, What Isn’t She Telling. Author Michelle Medhat has penned a brilliant combination of science fiction, political intrigue, terrorists, and romance in a taut page-turner. Beginning with Ellie Noor’s nightmare which is almost prescient and shifting quickly to a conversation between two men who are followers of … Continue reading “What Isn’t She Telling” by Michelle Medhat
