Hawk Quest by Robert Lyndon
Rate this book

I read Hawk Quest because I was in the mood for an epic. Clocking in at a little over six hundred and fifty pages (not even close to the longest book I've read but more than enough to sink your teeth into) Robert Lyndon's novel definitely qualifies. ...more

The Late Show by Michael Connelly
Rate this book

Michael Connelly can write. In The Late Show he brings us a new female detective, Renee Ballard, and I will be honest it took me a little while to warm to her. Usually Connelly's writing is so propulsive I cannot put down one of his books once I star ...more
