CONCRETE ANGEL: Cover art for Patricia Abbott̵...

Senior Film Critic Patricia Abbott will be releasing her debut novel, with Polis Books, in the Summer of 2015. We are pleased as punch to present the cover art for CONCRETE ANGEL. Eve Moran has always wanted “things” and has proven both inventive and tenacious in both getting and keeping them – she lies, steals, cheats and swindles, paying little heed to the cost of her actions on those who love her. When Eve kills a man she picks up in a shoe repair shop, she persuades her twelve year-old daughter, Christine, to confess to the crime. The girl, compelled by love, dependency and circumstance, is caught up in her mother’s deceptions and find...

Robert B. Parker’s BLIND SPOT by Reed Farrel...

Robert B. Parker’s Blind Spot Reed F. Coleman Putnam September 9th, 2014 Blind Spot, a Robert B. Parker novel, currently written by Reed Farrel Coleman is a spell binding mystery. Coleman, who has been commissioned for the next three novels, after Parker’s death in 2010, is now authoring the Jesse Stone series. Having never read Parker it is impossible to comment on how much Blind Spot followed Parker’s works. However, this latest novel is very fast-paced, exciting, interesting, and can stand on its own merits.   With many of the top-notch mystery/thriller authors having passed away, the recent trend is to hire replacement...

ACCIDENTS OF MARRIAGE by Randy Susan Meyers

Within the chapters Meyers discusses the different perspectives of each family member. It is People Magazine’s pick of the week for September 12th.   Meyers, whose background includes working with victims of domestic violence, skillfully examines how each character reacts to the intense pressure, some failing while others rise to the challenge. The mystery begins after Maddy is gravely injured in a...

ICE SHEAR by M.P. Cooley

Ice Shear M. P. Cooley William Morrow July 22, 2014 Ice Shear, M. P. Cooley’s debut novel, is very impressive. She moves the plot along through the dialogue. Action comes from the character’s words and not from gun shoot-outs or bloody chases. But make no mistake this police procedural is far from dull and mundane. The story begins with June Lyons, a former FBI agent, who is now part of the Hopewell Falls New York police department. Working the night shift her duties seem limited to driving drunks home and handling the homeless. This small town in upstate New York hardly knew what the word murder meant until June discovers a young woman’s...
