reviewed Sick Puppy. May 11, 2005
Sick Puppy
Few writers of the thriller/mystery genre have the gift of humor. And even fewer have Carl Hiaasen's ability to craft sentence after sentence of dialogue and observations that can have you laughing aloud …

reviewed Run the Risk. February 04, 2005
Run the Risk
Scott Frost makes his formal novel debut with a scorchingly fascinating, roller coaster ride of a story set against the background of Pasadena, California during the time in which all eyes are on the …
reviewed Pompeii: A Novel. September 15, 2004
Pompeii: A Novel
Despite what you might think, Mount Vesuvius is something of a secondary character in this historical novel, even though the reader is well aware of what's in store for the mountain and the Roman towns …

Catch Me If You Can: The True Story of a Real Fake
If you liked the movie version of this semi-autographical breeze of a read, you certainly will enjoy Frank Abagnale Jr's madcap recap of a scant few years of his life starting when he was barely sixteen. …

Tularosa
In McGarrity's first novel ex-Santa Fe cop Kevin Kerney, derailed by a shot-up knee, takes a break from retirement when Navajo cop Terry Yazzi, his former partner and the man responsible for his injury, …
reviewed The Rule of Four. July 12, 2004
The Rule of Four
I enjoyed reading this book, but I think that the center of the work was advertised as being the unravelling of the mysterious book. That doesn't appear to be the situation, as we are treated to a tour …
reviewed Country of Origin: A Novel. July 08, 2004
Country of Origin: A Novel
A young American woman is missing in 1980's Tokyo, set against the political backdrop of the Iran hostage crisis and the upcoming presidential election in America. The author positions his characters …
reviewed Pompeii: A Novel. June 24, 2004
Pompeii: A Novel
Just finished Pompeii, which didn't come alive for me until the last half of the story. The characterizations are a bit shallow, with the exception of Pliny Elder, who is brought to life as a living person …
reviewed The Rule of Four. June 04, 2004
The Rule of Four
It is a marketing misjustice of sorts (or perhaps not in terms of sales) to compare "The Rule of Four" to Dan Brown's "Da Vinci Code" and Donna Tartt's "Secret History". Those readers expecting Brown's …
reviewed Pompeii: A Novel. February 09, 2004
Pompeii: A Novel
I have always enjoyed well written historical fiction, especially if the story line stays fairly close to actual events. This new book falls perfectly into that category: well written, historically accurate, …

The Godfather
One of the best films I have ever seen with a lot of memorable scenes and classic lines. On top of that probably the best directing ever and a perfect cast.Don Corleone, I honor you!Memorable dialogue …
reviewed The Godfather. June 27, 2003
The Godfather
After I purchased Mario Puzo's novel, I stayed up most of that night reading it. Two years later, this film adaptation appeared and I have since seen it (as well as Godfather Part II) more than a dozen …

Catch Me If You Can: The True Story of a Real Fake
CATCH ME IF YOU CAN is the autobiography of master con man, Frank Abagnale. By the time he was 20, he had traveled all over the world; stolen millions of dollars; passed himself off as a Pan Am pilot, …
reviewed The Alienist. November 16, 2002
The Alienist
Throughout the first half I was convinced this book would only rate three amazon stars (I was planning to review it even while reading it!), since it was ponderous and somewhat poky in pace . . . and …
reviewed The Godfather. August 24, 2001
The Godfather
Rarely does a film manage to express the power of a novel from which it was based -- but "The Godfather" does manage to do quite well. Realizing that the entire second section of the novel could not be …
reviewed Sick Puppy. April 14, 2001
Sick Puppy
As insane as the storylines are in this book (and trust me, they are WHACKED!), they all work together to form a story that not only entertains but somehow worms its way into your heart as well. It is …

Tripwire (Jack Reacher, No. 3)
Reacher, the protagonist in "Tripwire" is a hero. A salt of the earth guy with solid morals and streetsmarts. He really doesn't want to get involved with anyone else's life - and doesn't want anyone involved …
