Lisa Gardner writes great psychological thrillers, and Fear Nothing is yet another excellent example. Highly recommended.
While readers will learn little that is new about Haller's complex backstory...they will find plenty of drama, danger, and suspense in this gem of a legal thriller.
Plenty of readers will enjoy it, especially the ending, which is hard to see coming — in part because the author manages expectations well, in part because it's so implausible. But in my case, the book simply didn't meet a standard that Turow had established in my mind.
The nearer Guinn's biography draws to its central horror, the more it picks up speed. The middle section pitches us into the whirlpool, presenting a swirl of horrific gore and bubbling black comedy.
Filled with believable characters and hard, realistic dialogue, Edgar-winner Box’s perfectly paced novel...offers a suspenseful story laced with more than a few shockingly unexpected plot twists.
A terrific story in the vein of Dennis Lehane's fiction.
Thanks to his book, Americans will be more aware of the costs of those methods. But they—and he—should also consider possible benefits.
...another marvelously entertaining Hiaasen adventure.
This devastating read stands less as a polemic against the death penalty than as a heartbreaking brief for the preciousness of life.
...a shattering parable of honest individuals caught up in the corruption of our times.
This fourth instalment in the Hole series is often great fun, but overlong.
Sandford keeps every stage of the investigation clear, compelling and suspenseful while peeling back layer after layer of a world in which “everybody was hot, everybody was rich."
...the execution of the plot is uneven, bordering on convoluted at various points. The characters, though interesting, are not fully developed to the point that a reader becomes fully invested in them nor cares about their fates.
The Anatomy of Violence is a sobering reminder that for all our cultural pretensions, we are also at the mercy of our biological systems.
A successful Johansen novel, filled with intriguing twists and characters and an overarching mystery that will keep fans coming back for Book 2.
Its basis in a real-life conflict makes Joe’s 13th case one of his most tendentious, but it’s Box who makes it one of his most exciting.
Fans of Nordic thrillers will find much to like.
Ms. Stabenow’s natural talent for dialogue and action holds the reader captive to the very end. All this and a cliffhanger to die for—which even the most astute reader won’t see coming until it’s too late.
A smart entry into the modern thriller pantheon, at once slick and gritty.
...first class crime thriller...
