March 2018 Reads


17 Manhattan Mayhem Mary Higgins Clark, editor
18 Red Right Hand Chris Holm
19 The Dry Jane Harper
20 The Night Hour Alice McDermott
21 Night Tremors Matt Coyle
22 Gone World Tom Sweterlitsch

I love NYC, and the short story collection Manhattan Mayhem was right up my alley.  From Wall Street to Harlem, each story covers a part of Manhattan.  Many famous and soon to be famous authors contributed to this collection.

Last year I read Holm's debut novel, The Killing Kind, and I was hooked. His writing is crisp and you don't want to stop reading.  You'll love Red Right Hand.

The Dry is another great debut novel, tightly woven and compelling. It was hard to put down and might want to keep a jug of water nearby.

I loved Gone World. The writing is lyrical and so good; NCIS and time travel are involved.  At once futuristic and hard-boiled. It takes you to another world and back again. (I paraphrased Stewart O'Nan for the last two sentences.)
