Second Watch (J.P. Beaumont Novels) by J A Jance
Second Watch (J.P. Beaumont Novels)

t engle, October 7, 2013

This is both a superb police procedural at the same time it is a heartbreaking love story. I admit I had only a part of the crime solved and was surprised at the ending. As a mystery it is top notch. Even more it is an emotional story, the roots of which are only apparent at the end. All good writers of this author's generation must write their novel that touches the Vietnam War. Jance's is stellar.

How the Light Gets In (Chief Inspector Gamache Novel #9) by Louise Penny
How the Light Gets In (Chief Inspector Gamache Novel #9)

t engle, September 12, 2013

The Light is absolutely marvelous from the opening acknowledgments concerning Leonard Cohen to the surprising ending. The characters in this series are so well crafted you feel you have been walking and talking with them for years. The blend of mystery and action is marvelous. I cannot recommend it highly enough, but please - read the whole series and start at the beginning.

The Bounty Hunters by Elmore Leonard
The Bounty Hunters

t engle, September 12, 2013

I have never read the early Leonard novels and desired to find out if his dialogue was exquisite from the very beginning. I counted three adverbs modifying the word "said". The man was a master.

The Infatuations by Javier Marias
The Infatuations

t engle, September 1, 2013

"...nothing is incompatible in the land of memory." This is a wonderful psychological thriller. Thought by thought the reader is drawn into the mind of the narrator, finally left shocked and disturbed. Think of Graham Greene combined with Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I simply must go find more of Javier Marias - I cannot believe I have missed him to this point.

The Son by Philipp Meyer
The Son

t engle, August 29, 2013

As this novel tears thru Texas from 1836 to almost present day it left my emotions ragged. It has all of invasion, Comanches, Texans, Mexicans, extermination, cattle, oil, loyalty, and betrayal. The characters are full - you hate them then love them then hate them. If you want a book that you will end up wishing you had not finished, pick up The Son.
