“Joyland (Hard Case Crime Book 112)” by Stephen King

                        Although I am a big Stephen King fan, I had never paid much attention to Joyland. Maybe it was the cover which seemed unnecessarily garish. I had never even read the book’s blurb or any of the reviews. Whatever the reason I resisted reading this novel, I succumbed to my love of King’s writing and added it to my Kindle. It’s a good thing … Continue reading “Joyland (Hard Case Crime Book 112)” by Stephen King

Author Claire Stibbe has hit a home run with Into The Silent Sea: A Psychological Thriller.  Her in depth examination of her character’s desperation is skin-crawling. The book takes off running from the prologue with the words, “I dream of you. I dream of killing you.” Show me any reader who could resist a hook like that! I couldn’t and didn’t want to resist. In … Continue reading

“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
