Review: "Ruin Falls: A Novel" by Jenny Miclhman

A vacation can highlight the strain inside a marriage. The simple thing at home in the normal confines becomes a bit more problematic out on the road. Throw in the stress of taking two small children on the road and that strain is increased. Liz Daniels knew that there were some issues in her marriage to Paul even if she never fully acknowledged them. Minor control stuff and usually she could find a work around to deal with it without anything turning into a major problem. Much harder to work…See More

Review: "The Dead Will Tell: A Kate Burkholder Novel" by Linda Castillo

The past is never truly buried. As any mystery reader knows, the past often comes back with a vengeance leaving a trail of bodies and carnage in its wake. Such is the case here in The Dead Will Tell: A Kate Burkholder Novel by Linda Castillo. The author once again takes readers to the Amish country she has made familiar in another tale where the past is almost as big a character as the actual characters themselves. The latest in this very good series begins in early March 1979 with a home…See More

Review: "Thuglit: Issue 12" edited by Todd Robinson

The latest collection of eight stories edited by Todd Robinson features the noir tales one expects from the Thuglit series. Whether it be fate that puts these characters in bad situations, bad decisions as that simplistic Facebook meme that some folks must unthinkingly share week in and week out, or just being in the wrong place at the wrong time, many of these characters are not living, working, or even walking down the sunny side of the street. Heck, they can’t even see the sunny side of the…See More

Short Story Collection Time With "Shots Fired" By C. J. Box

When I was a kid growing up in Northeast Dallas my parents always took us camping on the winter breaks as well as during the summers. Not only did we do a bunch of parks and sites here in Texas we spent weeks at a time up in Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana. My dad was an avid hiker and he and I frequented many a trail. Little did I know then that, as fate would have it, once I moved out at age twenty I would never make it back to the mountains I had loved since a child. Author C. J. Box is one…See More

Review: "The Woodsman - A Short Story" by George Wier

Wolf Dillard had been having a great carnal dream involving himself and a local waitress until he was woken up by a very loud screech. A screech in the night that continued long  after he awoke and seemed to sort of contain words in some sort of unintelligible language. Wolf made his way through his home to his screened in porch where he grabbed his shotgun from where it rested next to his freezer. By the time he got there the horrible loud noise had stopped. Karakawa County was silent and yet…See More

Review: "Knife Fight: An Alex Stone Short Story" by Joel Goldman

For Travis Runnels every single day is a knife fight. Being in jail is just an occupational hazard for him. It is a public defender like Alex Stone who Travis is going to have to rely on to get him out of a death penalty murder case. The fact that she is a Jew and lesbian doesn't impress him any more than the fact he is an African-American impresses her.…See More

"Dana: Sorry about the late reply. I never got the alert. You must have read THE RULES and that one is a good one too. Anything Mark Troy does is good. "

Burt Collins is just one of those difficult folks that Sheriff Dan Rhodes has to deal with on a daily basis.

His latest issue is that he doesn't like the artists that have shown up all over Clearview, Texas.
