CRIMESPREES by John A. Connell

Connell Spree [sprē]: an unrestrained indulgence in or outburst of activity Spree…an appropriate word for what the killer does in my crime thriller, Ruins of War—and with a vengeance!

SOLITUDE CREEK by Jeffery Deaver

Solitude Creek by Jeffery Deaver Grand Central Publishing May 12th, 2015 Solitude Creek by Jeffery Deaver is a riveting mystery. He is definitely the Master of Suspense with the many twists and turns throughout the novel. It is an understatement to say he manipulates his readers as he sets them up for one course of action and then abruptly changes it. This latest Kathryn Dance novel is no different. What makes this plot so gripping is that any person can see themselves in the victim’s situation. Whether in an elevator, a music club, a book signing, or an amusement park, the antagonist is able to manipulate a situation to cause chaos and...
