The Other Woman: A Novel (Gabriel Allon)

No Critic Review

The Other Woman

by Daniel Silva

Sharp Objects: A Novel
A savage debut thriller that renders the Electra complex electric, the mother/daughter bond a psychopathic stranglehold...Piercingly effective and genuinely terrifying.
Kirkus

Sharp Objects

by Gillian Flynn

Origin
Origin is comfortably predictable, it brings back Robert Langdon and his Mickey Mouse watch for another sprawling romp, and it moves the pages pleasantly on those otherwise stressful nights...
NY Journal of Books

Origin

by Dan Brown

The Perfect Couple
Sink into this book like a hot, scented bath...a delicious, relaxing pleasure. And a clever whodunit at the same time.
Kirkus

The Perfect Couple

by Elin Hilderbrand

The Rooster Bar
As in all of Grisham’s best books, the reader of “The Rooster Bar” gets good company, a vigorous runaround and — unlike those poor benighted suckers at Foggy Bottom — a bit of a legal education.
NY Times

The Rooster Bar

by John Grisham

Spymaster: A Thriller (The Scot Harvath Series Book 18)

No Critic Review

Spymaster

by Brad Thor

The President Is Missing
The larger problem, though, is how cramped the novel's scope remains. There's no thrum of national panic, no sense of the wide world outside this very literal narrative.
LA Times

The President Is Missing

by Bill Clinton

Cottage by the Sea

by Debbie Macomber

The Outsider: A Novel
They are, crucially, not Texans. In a nice play on the title, they are outsiders...King doesn’t presume to be an insider, either. There is a cop of Mexican descent, Yune Sablo, and an Anglo woman who grew up in the area, Lovie Ann Bolton, but neither is the protagonist; King doesn’t inhabit them as he does Anderson and Gibney.
NY Times


The Outsider

by Stephen King

All We Ever Wanted: A Novel
...her carefully constructed sense of family fractures against her realization that Kirk may not be the husband, father, or man she thought he was. A compelling portrait of a woman facing the difficult limits of love.
Kirkus

All We Ever Wanted

by Emily Giffin

Crazy Rich Asians
A witty tongue-in-cheek frolic about what it means to be from really old money and what it’s like to be crazy rich.
Publishers Weekly
