A solid first in a series. Recommended to fans of CJ Tudor's The Chalk Man. ["An engaging, solid mystery that will captivate lovers of the genre, especially those drawn to regional settings": LJ 11/1/18 review of the Thomas & Mercer hc.]

The Piranhas

The Female Persuasion

Wolitzer’s gift for characterization alone does not save the novel. [“Sure to be in demand: an essential purchase”: LJ 3/1/18 starred review of the Riverhead hc.]

A shocking, brutal, and completely unforgettable read, not for the squeamish.

Ellis excels at atmosphere, eloquently capturing Georgian London. The characters are so filled with depravity that the tale is hard to put down.

The Whole Town's Talking

A cheerful and uplifting, character-oriented tale with a pleasing ending. Recommended to fans of Alice Sebold's The Lovely Bones. ["Die-hard Flagg admirers will enjoy this title, but new readers should start with another Flagg book or pick up Americana favorites by Billie Letts or Ann B. Ross": Xpress Reviews 11/18/16 review of the Random hc.]
