Book Review: Disturb by J.A. Konrath

The last J.A. Konrath book I read during my reading frenzy during Christmas was Disturb. This is the eighth book in the Konrath/Kilborn Collective, and wasn’t one of my favorite. Not only did I figure out the deal with the killer early on, but the main characters weren’t particularly sympathetic, and the plot began to veer toward […]

Webcam by Jack Kilborn brings the return of Chicago Homicide Detective Tom Mankowski. Tom has appeared in a couple other books in the Konrath/Kilborn Collective, and has become one of my favorite characters.

Book Review: The Final Winter by Iain Rob Wright

In my determination to read all of author J.A. Konrath’s books, I stumbled upon another writer who collaborated with him on one of his novels, Holes in the Ground, the sequel to Konrath’s Origin. For that novel, author Iain Rob Wright integrated a couple of his characters from his book The Final Winter, which is about a group of people trapped […]
