The Antigone Poems

The Antigone Poems by Marie Slaight and Terrence Tasker (Artist)

Described by The Washington Independent Review of Books as ‘terrifyingly brilliant,’ The Antigone Poems is a powerful retelling of the ancient Greek tale of defiance and justice. An intensely personal invocation of the Sophocles tragedy, it questions power, punishment and one of mythology’s oldest themes: rebellion. Click Here to Purchase More »

The Pagan Lord: A Novel (Saxton Tales) by Bernard Cornwell

The Pagan Lord

Reviewed by Teri Davis

England had numerous battles in their early years after the fall of the Roman Empire to determine the dream of ruling the entire island. Between the ever-invading Vikings and the constant fighting with the Saxons, sometimes it seems amazing that anyone lived to tell the history.

In Bernard Cornwell’s novel *The Pagan Lord*, this is the tale of whether this island will be England or Daneland.

Edward is now king but the Danish Vikings still hold much of what we now know as northern England. Leading these Danes is Cnut Longsword who views victory as within their foreseeable future.

Stalked (Jonathan Stride) by Brian Freeman

Stalked

Reviewed by Allen Hott

Pretty good overall even though the subject matter could be a turn-off to many readers. Basically Stalked is about a stalker or ? who rapes women who somehow or another get involved in sex clubs or similar places. The book is really well written and carries its action well.

And the best part is that there is no graphic sex in the telling. How? I suppose by just being a good story teller who is able to take the story line and add to it some items without overloading it with explicit details.

The Escape (John Puller Series)by David Baldacci

The Escape

Reviewed by Allen Hott

This time Baldacci is using John Puller as his main character. Over the years he has used several different main characters in his stories about Washington D.C., the military, and the various happenings in those areas. John Puller is a Warrant Officer presently working for the Criminal Investigation Division. His background is extensively military as his father is well known as a general who built quite a reputation for his combat successes.. Over the last several books however his father has been semi-incapacitated due to dementia.

Robert Puller, John’s older brother, is an Air Force officer who is spending his time in the U. S. Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth Kansas. He was found guilty of some sort of treason activities against the United States. John has never been able to find out exactly what all of that entailed as he was out of the country when the trial was held. No manner of digging has ever allowed him to find out the whole story as higher authority has hidden all information.

The Assassin (An Isaac Bell Adventure) by Clive Cussler and Justin Scott

The Assassin

Reviewed by Allen Hott

A very good fictional tale about an assassin that was determined to harm to John D Rockefeller. Although it is fictional it reads like it could have happened.

In the early 1900’s Rockefeller’s Standard Oil was gobbling up the oil industry throughout the United States and John D. had sights on expanding throughout the world.

Many felt that his methods were wrong and that he used his wealth and power to overrun the smaller oil companies by hook and crook. He was somewhat ruthless but he wasn’t without character. A religious man he tried to do his dealings accordingly but it didn’t always work out that way.

Hush Hush by Laura Lippman

Hush Hush

Reviewed by Caryn St. Clair

After taking a break from the Tess Monaghan books to write several stand -a -lone novels, Lippman returns to Tess for a twelfth book in Hush Hush. The story picks up three years after readers last saw Tess, now a mother of a three year old daughter. Tess struggles with motherhood, feeling like she doesn’t have the parenting instincts, yet in constant awe of her daughter. She also struggles with her relationship with Crow, Carla Scout’s father and Tess’s long time lover. Despite the bumps in her personal life Tess is ready and willing to take on a difficult case, but that too becomes a struggle as the details of the client’s past unfold.

Twelve years ago Melisandre Harris Dawes drove her infant daughter to the riverside, parked her car, rolled up the windows and got out to sit and wait while her baby girl cooked to death. She was acquitted due to insanity and sent to a hospital. Now she is out, ready to film a documentary about her case and begin a relationship with her two teenage daughters. Her former husband has remarried and now has an infant son. While he initially agrees to let the girls decided whether to see their mom or not, he changes his mind and decides to prevent it. And then he is found dead at the couple’s former home and once again Melisandre is a suspect in a murder case. Sandy, Tess’s partner is hired by Melisandre’s attorney to find evidence to prove her innocence.

This book is less like the Tess Monaghan, newspaper reporter and more like her stand-a-lone books steeped in social issues. For one thing, there is not a likeable character among the group. And I’m including the series regulars in that too. By half way through the book I did not like Tess much anymore either. The plot is drawn out with several subplots tied into it. It becomes more of a character story and a commentary on married life and parenthood at times as well. But the crux of the case-was Melisandre crazy when she left her baby to die in the hot car or not, and is she sane now is a compelling one played out across the country every week.

If fans of Tess can stand her being bogged down in motherhood and a stagnated relationship, the plot of Hush Hush will keep you reading. If not, then this might be a DID NOT FINISH for them.

The Stranger by Harlen Coben

Hush Hush

Reviewed by Allen Hott

After Missing You I was pretty sure that Harlan Coben had written perhaps his best book with a “wow” of an ending. Guess what? It appears that Coben may have topped that masterpiece with The Stranger!

Another tightly written story with not just twists and turns but all of them were also nerve racking, scary moves. In this one also Coben has put in an ending that is not necessarily what many of us would have liked but it surely is an ending that fits the book and is pretty much typical of this great writer.

Cold Cold Heart by Tami Hoag

Cold Cold Heart

Reviewed by Caryn St. Clair

Dana Nolan is the only victim of a serial killer to survive, but Dana is left with serious disfigurement, Traumatic Brain Injury and PTSD. While the news media is all over her story keeping the attack and her survival alive, Dana is struggling to remember the simplest things around her. She doesn’t remember most people, places or things. She takes photographs and keeps a written log of people, directions and events to use as a reference. She returns to her parents’ home in Indiana to recover but finds being home presents even more challenges. To start with, although she and her step father have never been particularly close, she feels edgy around him now. And its awkward being around so many people who she has a history with but she doesn’t remember. But the worst is the question that pops up almost immediately. Could the attack on Dana have any connection to what happened to her best friend Casey Grant? Casey disappeared right after high school graduation. Casey’s boyfriend, who was a suspect at the time, is also back in town.

Twelve Days (A John Wells Novel) by Alex Berenson

Twelve Days

Reviewed by Allen Hott

John Wells is back! In the midst of a major government problem, in the Middle East, and working himself beyond belief to help his country! As usual Wells is working alongside of Ellis Shafer, his former boss, and Vinny Duto, former CIA agent and currently a U.S. senator.

A truly great beginning as a U.S. airliner with close to two hundred people counting the crew is blasted out of the sky. The plane had just left Mumbai or Bombay, as it is still referred to by many. Several of the passengers and the pilot watched as the missiles approached the plane. The pilot was able to avert one of them but the second one tore the plane apart killing all on board.

The Meluhhan Oracle by I.J. Roy

The Meluhhan Oracle

Reviewed by Teri Davis

The words of a storyteller can magically weave images of places far away and times long past. However, the people in these tales are memorable while still being realistically human with their personal errors in judgments, selfishness, and risk taking. These stories, even adult ones as in this novel, still reveal life lessons while revealing the people and everyday life of the culture.

The Meluhhan Oracle is the creation of author I. J. Roy who envisions the world of long ago in the lands between Sumer and Meluhha which is now known as the Indus Valley Civilization currently recognized as Northwest India and Pakistan. He utilized information from archeological finds to construct this tale.

Each chapter builds upon the characters and consequences of the previous ones, all revolving around a few central figures as their quests filled with learning experiences and adventures. These characters believe in their fates, each one fulfilling their personal destiny and purpose in life. The mastery of interweaving of the characters throughout the entire novel is phenomenal.

Black Scorpion: The Tyrant Reborn (Michael Tiranno The Tyrant) by Jon Land (Author) and Fabrizio Boccardi (Creator)

Black Scorpion

Reviewed by Russell Ilg

I don’t know how he does it. Jon Land’s latest novel Black Scorpion: The Tyrant Reborn is just more proof of his ability to take the reader on the greatest ride of his or her literary life. The depth and complex nature of the characters takes you well beyond fiction to the point that you are carried into a world that is so real you become part of the book in every sense.

It’s been five years since the book’s hero Michael Tiranno, aka “the Tyrant,” saved Las Vegas from terrorists in the blockbuster The Seven Sins. Now he, along with the entire country and world, are facing an even greater enemy in the form of Black Scorpion, an international criminal organization that fancies human trafficking above all else. When Michael’s girl friend Scarlet Swan runs afoul of them while on an archaeological dig in Romania, Michael drops everything to embark on a mission that will ultimately define who and what he is. Black Scorpion’s mysterious leader, Vladimir Dracu, is the yin to his yang. Opposite sides of the same coin, in more ways than one as it turns out.
