REVIEWED: Two Nights

Two Nights by Kathy Reichs (Mystery Novel, 2017). Reichs is of course best known for the books featuring Temperance Brennan (and the Bones TV series that sprang from them). She’s also co-authored (with her son) a series of Young Adult focused books. This–her latest–is neither. It’s a sometimes grim, but exciting crime/missing person story centered around an embittered […]

REVIEWED: Uncle Tom’s Cabin

Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe. (Historical Novel/Classic Literature, 1852). This anti-slavery epic from shortly before the American Civil War is of great historical significance (Lincoln himself claimed that it played a major part in bringing on the war itself). It was certainly in its time an influential and controversial book. Yet as a famous […]

REVIEWED: Dead and Gone

Dead and Gone by Charlaine Harris (Supernatural Horror Novel, 2009). Yep, picked up another one.

It includes a whopping 16 never-before-published pieces and 2 never included in any of his several previous collections. Pretty neat […]

REVIEWED: The Ends of the Earth

The Ends of the Earth by Robert Goddard (Historical Espionage Novel, 2015/2017). Not to be confused with nautical historical adventure series by William Golding, this is the concluding volume of a spy/revenge/mystery trilogy set in the confused aftermath of World War I. James Maxted (Max to his friends) was an ace fighter pilot during the Great War. He […]
