“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

“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

“Mark of The Hyena: An Electric Eclectic Book” – By Mark Fine

I’ve enjoyed Mark Fine’s writing since I read his novel, The Zebra Affaire. Delighted to find his Electric Eclectic novelette, Mark of the Hyena, I eagerly dove into reading it. Fine’s writing is almost poetic; his use of words musical. This short story captures all the beauty and harshness of sub-Sahara Africa. When the San Bushman of the Kalahari, N!xau, comes across the barely living … Continue reading “Mark of The Hyena: An Electric Eclectic Book” – By Mark Fine
