Lots of twists and turns make this a satisfying legal thriller

Absent Witness - book cover picture

When on our recent cruise, I found myself in the rare position of
having nothing to read (in that I had finished the other book I had
brought) . . . so I ventured to the ship's library and came across
a paperback that looked interesting from a cursory review of the
jacket: ABSENT WITNESS by Nancy Kopp.

Billed as a "legal thriller," it's a novel about a woman who is in a
coma after a car accident . . . when she becomes impregnated
while in the hospital, the search begins for the culprit.

Many twists and turns later, I still found myself interested in
the outcome right up until the satisfying conclusion . . . in addition,
there's a romantic subplot that added to my enjoyment.

I'll also make it a point to read other books by the author, though
a quick check seems to indicate that for some reason she hasn't
written anything after 2003 . . . too bad!

Karyn Longhorne has crafted a superb first novel. Alayna and Ben are spellbounding characters and will capture your attention the moment they walk onto the page. The book kept me up until the wee hours of the night to see how this couple overcomes their interracial angst and embrace their growing love. I was not disappointed!! Bravo! I look forward to reading many more books by this writer.

Face Down upon an Herbal (Elizabethan Mysteries) - book cover picture

Even better than the first of the "Face Down" series, Face Down Upon an Herbal an outstanding example of the historical mystery genre. Susanna, Lady Appleton, is an intelligent and engaging sleuth. The plot never hurries yet has definite direction, always leading toward the eagerly anticipated denouement. And the secondary characters are well-drawn and equally engaging. I can't wait for future entries in this series and hope there will be many more.

Slippage: Previously Uncollected, Precariously Poised Stories - book cover picture

This book should be read immediately and at least three times so that you-will-get-it. Okay?It should also be given a rating of 15, instead of 5, for excellence, of course.And if this were a class at some stuffy University, the book might be sold like this...This is your class assignment for the semester: Go and pick up a copy of SLIPPAGE at the bookstore and read Chapters 1 through The End. You will be tested on each chapter throughout the remainder of your lives. It's too bad, though, that you will also be ENJOYING yourselves while learning to be better human beings, but that's Professor Ellison's fault not ours. If it were up to the school, we'd make sure that you felt inadequate and guilty while reading this. Unfortunately, reading SLIPPAGE is known to elevate your mood to the point where you will actually feel good about yourself and maybe even start respecting yourself a little bit better.Too bad, dumb student ... too bad....

Impeachment : A Handbook (Yale Fastback Series) - book cover picture

Black's book is remarkably relevent to the current impeachment situation, even after 25 years. Though his examples are comtemporary to the Nixon near-impeachment (and prior to his resignation), it is refreshing to read a treatise on impeachment that does not constantly refer to Starr, Lewinsky, Tripp, et al. It is not written for the lawyer, so it has a popular flavor that made it a quick read while still imparting a great deal of information.

Soul of the Fire (Sword of Truth, Book 5) - book cover picture

Hei... I am not beiung prejudice or bias toward Robert Jordan. I used to like him alot but his recent books are just too... long winded and has no solid story anymore. Each book he wrote for the last 3 books were just to kill one of the bad guys. Unlike jordan, terry goodkind really gives you solid thrilling stories about the main character and very very good at making surprise endings... I haven't read his latest book but i hope he doesn't follow the foot step of jordan. Imagine jordan writing 2 pages just to describe a room or a person and 4 pages to describe a stone or something.... ridiculous.

Master of the Senate: The Years of Lyndon Johnson - book cover picture

This is the one book and especially hardback in the past years that is worth every cent and maybe more. I found Caro's description of the post-war senate and Southern democrats was of particular interest and enlightening for a mid-30s person such as myself.Caro shows the political animal of LBJ in all its glory and really underlines the basic truth that politics is the art of the possible and that LBJ was an old master.

Maravilhosa simplicidade

The Gospel According to Jesus Christ - book cover picture

It`s the third Saramago I read, and it`s the best. He exposes his ideas in the simplest way, although difficult to read, and they are all true, as anyone who sees the news around the world can notice. The formlessness in this book is one of its most attractive features. One has to pay much attention to follow the dialogues. The very long sentences give me the impression that the man is talking directly to me, in a casual conversation. I had the occasion to hear him in my town, and he gave exactly the same impression of simplicity. He had received the Nobel prize not long before and was absolutely tired with all the conferences and meetings that ensued. For me this quick conference had a special value, because it was funny when someone had to "translate" Portuguese Portuguese to Brazilian Portuguese. It added so much interest. (the review is for the Brazilian edition)

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Book 4) - book cover picture

It isn't often that an author produces a series of books where each new book is better than the last, but J. K. Rowling does it consistently. The Harry Potter books are wonderful for a variety of reasons, but the chief one is that Rowling writes what she would like to read. The Goblet of Fire is the longest and darkest of the series to date, but a brilliant transitional book. There were three passages in the book that literally reduced me to tears, while others made me laugh out loud. I am a 50 year old biology prof- but I am ready to go to Hogwarts at the drop of an owl post. If only...

A great read

Book title: Justifiable Means
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Justifiable Means - book cover picture

How does one cope with grief after the tragic loss of a loved one? In Melissa's case, REVENGE. Blackstock does a great job of showing that Christians are human and have to deal with the problems of life like anyone else. The difference is how a Christian, like Detective Larry Millsaps, deals with those problems. Not only is the story great, but also having a great Christian law enforcement officer as the protagonist was wonderful--not a lot of writers could carry that off the way that Blackstock can. The only thing lacking in this story is that it has not yet been made a movie of the week!
