Thrillers & Suspense
Review: This book has been so incredibly hyped up, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. To be honest, I’m a little late to the game and I know this review is just going to be thrown into the massive ocean of reviews already out there. I don’t even know how to do this book any justice!
Definitely a Stephen King vibe, MAJORLY. Small town childhood trouble terror that comes back to haunt people well into adult-hood. Sign me up!
This was a twisty, creepy book. Honestly I couldn’t believe jus... Read more
Review: An overlong blurb for what is actually a succinct, riveting story by a great author. Gardiner delivers a thrilling, fast-paced story about a serial killer with a rather explosive ending in UNSUB.

When it finally arrived, it was a really old copy and not at all what I thought I was ordering. Fair warning to all book collectors...be careful with the us... Read more

The murder of a Russian on the shores of Lake Superior has fast become a political problem and Davenport's talents are needed.
The dead man has finally been identified as Ro... Read more
Review: The twelfth book in the excellent Prey series is a welcome change, since the last entry was a disappointment. Sandford has returned to his particular plot device of focusing on the villain, so although there is no mystery about whodunnit, the excitement comes from tracking Lucas Davenport and his team of Minneapolis cops as they stumble their way to the truth. A solid secondary character emerges, a deputy from a rural county with a strong stake in finding the serial killer. Davenport's personal ... Read more
