Book Review: The Cabinet of Curiosities (Pendergast #3) by Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child

One of my favorite thrillers to watch is the 1997 film, “The Relic,” staring Penelope Ann Miller and Tom Sizemore. This film is based on the book of the same name by authors Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. Like most book adaptations, this one differs greatly from the novel, but it helped sparked my interest […]

Book Review: Devil’s Cut (The Bourbon Kings) by J.R. Ward

Book Review: Devil’s Cut (The Bourbon Kings) by J.R. Ward

The final installment in J. R. Ward’s The Bourbon Kings series tied up all the loose ends, solved a murder mystery, and gave the characters the endings they deserved. The novel was an engrossing read that I found difficult to put down, despite me wanting it to never end. J. R. Ward captivated me with the Dallas like shenanigans […]

Book Review: The Bat by Jo Nesbø

Jo Nesbø has been an author I’ve wanted to read for years. So when I got a deal on one of his books, Cockroaches, I couldn’t pass it up. However, when I went to read it I discovered it is the second book in Nesbø’s Harry Hole Detective series. The first novel, The Bat, introduces readers to Inspector Harry Hole of […]

Book Review: Afraid by Jack Kilborn

Book Review: Afraid by Jack Kilborn

“There is no decent place to stand in a massacre. —LEONARD COHEN” I came across Jack Kilborn’s Afraid while browsing through Kindle Unlimited’s mystery section. It was recommended to me because I like Blake Crouch’s work, and the two authors often work together. Yet, I let it linger on my TBR for months. I’m glad I finally […]
