Very predictable, not very mysterious mystery. When a senator commits is found dead of an apparent suicide, an investigation reveals that his wife has a history of dead men in her life. But everyone loves her and even the investigator assigned to her case develops feelings for her. A quick read, and fairly well written, but even the shocking reveals are oddly predictable.
Really good crime drama! Twists and turns and interesting characters. This is at least the second Harry Bosch novel I've read and enjoyed them both. Well-written and entertaining.
Homicide investigator Kate Farrer returns from leave with little time to overcome her personal trauma and find a missing infant before it's too late. Entertaining, quick read, good ending. I would also go looking for other Kate Farrer novels.
Jerry, Elaine, Kramer and George and the four most horrible people you could ever not hate. They are selfish, neurotic, obsessive and absolutely crazy and hilarious to watch!
This is by far the best book I have read in a long time! A thoughtful, compelling commentary on our society made through a riveting story. Set in a broken future America, destroyed by war and famine, in which a small minority lives in extreme luxury while most of the citizens struggle daily just to survive. Under a corrupt and evil government, this future society glorifies violence so much that the one remaining "reality tv show" features children slaughtering eachother, and the winner's prize is enough food for their home district for the following year. While the premise is deeply disturbing, that is exactly the point. The story is told through the eyes of a jaded yet vulnerable young woman, and much of the story is in her internal conflict. Let's be clear - there are no happy endings in this world, but you just HAVE TO KNOW what's going to happen.
