Twelve Days by Alex Berenson
"Great thriller!!! John Wells saves the day again!!!"
Twelve Days by Alex Berenson
"Brilliant. This series gets better with every book. Minus the Night Ranger. "
Twelve Days by Alex Berenson
"An action adventure full of suspense! The characters were well rounded, flawed, and completely believable. Without giving away the plot, the subject is quite timely and even plausible. I found myself thinking about the story and looking forward to..." Read more of this review »
City of Bones by Michael Connelly

Connelly's usual solid work. A relatively simple cold case, though nothing is ever as simple as it seems in Harry Bosch's world...
Dirty Love by Andre Dubus III
Rate this book
Clear rating
Three stories and a novella, heartbreaking and brilliantly written. Dubus pulls off the trick of bringing life and even a bit of sympathy to people whose behavior is awful by any objective standard (especially Doucette,the bartender)...
The Dinner by Herman Koch

Couldn't put it down even though I was increasingly repulsed at myself for continuing to read it -- basically how I feel on those (fortunately rare) days when I give into temptation and read the New York Post.

Paper-thin plot, pretends to be a relentl

Serena by Ron Rash

Lots of beautiful description and interesting details about the world of early 20th century logging. But an increasingly bizarre and implausible plot, and the two main characters became less rather than more real as the book progressed...

“Rosette disappeared onto the dance floor. Wells sat in silence for a minute, watching the dancers. The worldwide cult of fast money spent stupidly. The worldwide cult of trying too hard. Moscow, Rio, Los Angeles, Tokyo, New York, London, Shanghai--the story was the same everywhere. The same overloud music, the same overpromoted brand names, the same fake tits, about as erotic as helium balloons. Everywhere an orgy of empty consumption and bad sex. Las Vegas was the cult's world headquarters, Donald Trump its patron saint. Wells had spent ten years in the barren mountains of Afghanistan and Pakistan. He never wanted to live there again. But if he had to choose between an eternity there or in the supposed luxury of this club, he'd go back without a second thought.”
Alex Berenson, The Silent Man

“Always wrong but never in doubt.”
Alex Berenson, The Faithful Spy

“If stupid people didn’t insist on thinking they were smart, the world would be a lot simpler.”
Alex Berenson, The Counterfeit Agent
