The Blue Nowhere

Jeffery Deaver

I am a complete technophobe and this thriller is all about cyberspace, and I could not put it down! That is brilliant writing (and research). I cared about the justice, the people and the compassion.

Fatal Voyage (Temperance Brennan Series #4)

Great atmosphere and grisly forensic stuff - as always, mounting tension and the sensitive intelligent character of Temperance Brennan which always draws me in.

The Conviction (David Sloane Series #5)

Robert Dugoni

A terrific father and son story with emotional impact, slowly tightening tension, rage at injustice, and finally, resolution and compassion. It made me acutely aware of problems in society that I had not even considered before.

Fire Sale (V. I. Warshawski Series #12)

Sara Paretsky

I like all the V.I. Warshawski stories, and this is definitely one of the best. South Chicago atmosphere, mounting threats, courage, defiance and sensitivity to the very different lives of others. Again, one of her best.

The Governor's Wife

Mark Gimenez

Terrific atmosphere of Texas on the Mexican border, with the intensity that I like so much in Mark Gimenez's work. Along with the pace, understanding and intelligence there is a dry sense of humor.

The Silent Girl (Rizzoli and Isles Series #9) (with bonus short story Freaks)

Tess Gerritsen

This story throws some light on Chinese American culture, and its lyrical passages are worth reading several times. A tense thriller and the complex character of Maura Isles which I find so compelling.
