Robert (robertdownsbooks) | 245 comments Warning. If you don't like foul language, you'll probably want to skip right over the below link. Dr. Pietro Brnwa briefly inhabited my universe for approximately 800 words or so, and I cannot be responsible for his blatant use of curse words.

Robert (robertdownsbooks) | 245 comments So I sometimes get a little overzealous with my book loving passion. During this review, I briefly entered the world of a high school stoner before reality came back to me.

Robert (robertdownsbooks) | 245 comments This review has managed to garner me a bit of attention on Goodreads and Amazon, so I couldn't resist adding it here. While it may lack a bit of book substance (at times), I like to think I more than make up for it with my level of disappointment.

Robert (robertdownsbooks) | 245 comments Light of the World: A Dave Robicheaux Novel

Light of the World A Dave Robicheaux Novel by James Lee Burke

If you like reading about bad guys, I can't think of too many authors that do it better than James Lee Burke. His good guys have demons, and his bad guys sometimes feel like evil incarnate, but he still manages to inject a level of humanity into all of his characters.

Robert (robertdownsbooks) | 245 comments Key Death by Jude Hardin

Jude Hardin knows how to name-drop his share of authors. He's managed to come up with a unique hard-boiled character with a mangled left hand and a revoked PI license for heroin abuse.

Robert (robertdownsbooks) | 245 comments Fifty Shades Trilogy by E.L. James

Fifty Shades Trilogy (Fifty Shades, #1-3) by E.L. James

So I realize this probably compares to tossing darts six inches from the dartboard, but I couldn't resist posting my review of the Fifty Shades trilogy, since I actually made it through all three novels. Plus, I just finished reviewing J. Kenner's erotica trilogy that covers a similar story arc.

Fender Benders by Bill Fitzhugh

This review may be over two months old now, but I do appreciate it when authors bring the zany.

Robert (robertdownsbooks) | 245 comments Whistling Past the Graveyard by Susan Crandall

Whistling Past the Graveyard by Susan Crandall

In honor of this novel's official publication date, which was two days ago, I couldn't resist pulling this review out of my backlist, or maybe I should just call it the review vault.

Robert (robertdownsbooks) | 245 comments All Edward all the time. So it's probably safe to say I was a bit of a fan of Edward Stanton and developed what one might call a bromance.

If you're curious, below are my reviews for 600 Hours of Edward and Edward Adrift.

Robert (robertdownsbooks) | 245 comments If you like a little paranormal with your hard-boiled mystery, you may want to check out The Taken by Vicki Pettersson.

Robert (robertdownsbooks) | 245 comments If you've ever considered having a meltdown at the DMV, then you may want to read my review of Hollywood Forever and subsequently the novel.

Robert (robertdownsbooks) | 245 comments If you've ever wondered how much OCD can restrict your life, and you'd like to get a bit freaked out in the process, you should read Into the Darkest Corner.

Robert (robertdownsbooks) | 245 comments If you'd like to read one of the biggest books of 2012 that is not titled Gone Girl, you could do worse than checking out Defending Jacob.

Robert (robertdownsbooks) | 245 comments Since Gone Girl was one of the biggest books of last year, I thought I would highlight my review here.

Robert (robertdownsbooks) | 245 comments This review has been around the block a time or two, but I thought it was worth highlighting here.
