REVIEW: Already Gone

Jake & Diane Reese are ordinary people. He’s a college professor and she’s an art dealer. What could be more mundane? However, things go from ordinary to outlandishly terrifying, in an instant, when Jake is attacked and two men cut off his ring finger, only to leave him bleeding and confused in a parking lot. Things go from bad to worse, however, when Diane goes missing and Jake is framed for murder.

Review: A Perfect Nightmare: A Novel

A PERFECT NIGHTMARE: A NOVEL BY JOHN SAUL John Saul has been around for a long time. His first book (Suffer the Children) was published in 1977 and became an instant best seller. I have read many of his books and find most of them to be a little better than okay, but not great. […]

REVIEW: Four Past Midnight

Four Past Midnight By Stephen King Genre: Horror I’m not really a fan of short story anthologies. So why buy a short story anthology? Wasn’t paying attention and bought it thinking it was one story. Don’t get me wrong. I love Stephen King. He is one of only four writers I would call my favorites. […]

Review: People of the Morning Star

People of the Morning Star by: Kathleen O’Neal Gear, W. Michael Gear Genre: Historical Fiction I am always amazed by the talent and genuine skill the Gears employ when writing. They are two of the most talented people I’ve ever had the pleasure of “knowing” (through their work). When the Gears write about ancient civilizations, […]
