A must read. Very good. But be forewarned - Chilling.

Personal (Jack Reacher Novels) by Lee Child
Personal (Jack Reacher Novels)

Jack is back. After a disappointing Never Go Back, this one is pure Jack Reacher. A lot of coffee, superb observation, twisting plot, and a couple of interesting side characters. Highly recommended!

A Colder War by Charles Cumming
A Colder War

t engle, October 26, 2014

If you like your spy novels with good spy craft, interesting secondary characters, and moments on the precipice of success or failure ten A Colder War is for you. The story contains threads from from A Foreign Country and a hint about the next in the series. However, no matter, the novel stands completely on its own. I particularly like the references to movies, books, and fictional characters - watch for the Secret Pilgrim. An exciting and "I can't put it down" read.

Broken Harbor by Tana French
Broken Harbor

One of the best things about this series set in the Dublin Murder Squad is that the setting is consistent but the lead character changes. This time it is Scorcher and a rookie must solve a triple murder. As in all the Dublin stories ethical questions quickly emerge and play an important role in the resolution of the case. The series can be read in any order, and all are very very good.

The Stone Wife (Peter Diamond Investigation) by Peter Lovesey
The Stone Wife (Peter Diamond Investigation)

t engle, October 23, 2014

These Peter Diamond mysteries are so very good. This one has not only a very good police procedural but also some Chaucer history. The ensemble characters make this a most delicious read. As Peter remarks the line of investigation is most "byzantine".
