Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child – Crooked River

Expected Release Date 2/4/20

A Pendergast Novel

Dozens of identical blue shoes are found in the ocean off the southwestern coast of Florida, all with a severed human foot inside, all exhibiting unmistakable signs of violence. They appear out of nowhere one day, floating in on the tide as if appearing out of nowhere.

Called off the tarmac from his return flight back to New York City, Pendergast reluctantly arrives on Captiva Island and is quickly drawn into the mystery. A preliminary pathology report indicates the feet were wrenched from their bodies in the crudest of ways. As the days continue, more wash in until the number tops one hundred.

Soon, Pendergast and his partner, junior agent Coldmoon find themselves squaring off against an adversary more powerful and deadly than they’ve ever encountered.


Kathy Reichs – A Conspiracy of Bones

Expected Release Date 3/17/20

A Temperance Brennan Novel

It’s sweltering in Charlotte, North Carolina, and Temperance Brennan, still recovering from neurosurgery following an aneurysm, is battling nightmares, migraines, and what she thinks might be hallucinations when she receives a series of mysterious text messages, each containing a new picture of a corpse that is missing its face and hands. Immediately, she’s anxious to know who the dead man is, and why the images were sent to her.

An identified corpse soon turns up, only partly answering her questions.

To win answers to the others, including the man’s identity, she must go rogue, working mostly outside the system. That’s because Tempe’s new boss holds a fierce grudge against her and is determined to keep her out of the case. Tempe bulls forward anyway, even as she begins questioning her instincts. But the clues she discovers are disturbing and confusing. Was the faceless man a spy? A trafficker? A target for assassination by the government? And why was he carrying the name of a child missing for almost a decade?

With help from a number of law enforcement associates including her Montreal beau Andrew Ryan and the always-ready-with-a-smart-quip, ex-homicide investigator Skinny Slidell, and utilizing new cutting-edge forensic methods, Tempe draws closer to the astonishing truth.

But the more she uncovers, the darker and more twisted the picture becomes…


James Rollins – The Last Odyssey

Expected Release Date 3/24/20

A Sigma Force Novel

For eons, the city of Troy—whose legendary fall was detailed in Homer’s Iliad—was believed to be myth, until archaeologists in the nineteenth century uncovered its ancient walls buried beneath the sands. If Troy was real, how much of Homer’s twin tales of gods and monsters, curses and miracles—The Iliad and The Odyssey—could also be true and awaiting discovery?

In the frozen tundra of Greenland, a group of modern-day climatologists and archaeologists stumble on a shocking find: a medieval ship buried a half mile below the ice. The ship’s hold contains a collection of even older artifacts—tools of war—dating back to the Bronze Age. Inside the captain’s cabin is a magnificent treasure that is as priceless as it is miraculous: a clockwork gold atlas encircled by an intricate silver astrolabe. The mechanism is signed with the name of its creator, Ismail al-Jazari, a famous Muslim inventor considered to be the Da Vinci of the Arab world—a brilliant scientist who inspired Leonardo’s own work.

Once activated, the moving globe traces the path of Odysseus’ famous ship as it sailed away from Troy. But the route detours as the map opens to reveal an underground river leading to a hidden realm underneath the Mediterranean Sea. The map indicates that this subterranean world is called Tartarus, the Greek name for Hell. In mythology, Tartarus was where the wicked were punished and the monstrous Titans of old, imprisoned.

When word of Tartarus spreads—and of the cache of miraculous weapons said to be hidden there—tensions explode in this volatile region where Turks battle Kurds, terrorists wage war, and civilians suffer untold horrors. The phantasmagoric horrors found in Homer’s tales are all too real—and could be unleashed upon the world. Whoever possesses them can use their awesome power to control the future of humanity.

Now, Sigma Force must go where humans fear to tread. To prevent a tyrant from igniting a global war, they must cross the very gates of Hell.


Mary Lawrence – The Lost Boys of London

Expected Release Date 4/28/20

A Bianca Goddard Novel

In the twilight years of Henry VIII’s reign, alchemist’s daughter Bianca Goddard uses her skills to aid the living, and help seek justice for the dead . . .
 
While her husband fights the Scots on behalf of King Henry VIII, Bianca Goddard earns her coin by concocting medicines that offer relief to London’s sick. Some unfortunates, however, are beyond any remedies she can provide—like the young boy discovered hanging from a church dripstone. Examining the body, Bianca finds a rosary twisted around the child’s neck. A week later, another boy is found dead at a different church. When Fisk, the impish little son of Bianca’s acquaintance, goes missing, she fears he may become the third victim . . .
 
There are many villains who would prey on wayward, penniless boys. But Bianca suspects the killings are not brutal acts of impulse, but something far more calculated. In her room of Medicinals and Physickes she examines the sole piece of evidence: a sweet-smelling, dark-stained cloth. If Bianca can unravel its secret, reputations and lives will be saved. But the expected hour of the next murder is approaching, and a single misstep may mean another boy is lost forever . . .


Iris Johansen – The Persuasion

Expected Release Date 6/2/20

An Eve Duncan Novel

Forensic sculptor Eve Duncan and ex-Navy Seal Joe Quinn are about to give Seth Caleb their trust for the most important duty of his life: keeping their daughter, Jane MacGuire, safe at any cost. Because Jane’s talent as an artist has brought her to the attention of a madman.

Seth, Jane’s longtime ally and fierce protector, is determined to keep her out of danger, but that becomes nearly impossible when Jane is forced to take matters into her own hands and confronts the man who wants her for himself…and wants Seth Caleb dead.

As Jane and Seth chase down their blood-thirsty adversary, they finally commit to one another — in the culmination of the love story that fans have been waiting for. As the two come face-to-face with danger, one thing is made clear: it will take both of them working together to confront and defeat this evil.

Terror Machine – Denison Hatch

Released on 12/15/19

A Jake Rivett Novel

THEY CALL IT… THE TERROR MACHINE.

It’s the holy grail of terrorism: A machine that can create martyrs out of thin air.

But can unorthodox NYPD Detective Jake Rivett and the elite operators from NYPD Counterterror and Major Crimes stop its creator before the horrific invention is perfected?

It all starts at Bryant Park. The Christmas market. A massive and devastating terror attack shakes Manhattan to its core. The terrorist responsible is a ghost and his cell fits no profile. But even worse than that, the joint task force—comprised of Jake Rivett, the Feds, and the NYPD’s Counterterror and Major Crimes Divisions—pull back the curtain on a science experiment like no other.

It’s called the Terror Machine.

The machine might not be perfect. But it works. The deadliest terror attack in New York since 9/11 proves that. But who’s going into the machine next? And more importantly, what will they do when they get out?

The joint task force finds no answers—only questions.

What do a discredited neurophysiologist from the leafy collegetown of Stony Brook, a slumlord religious scholar in Astoria, and a seventeen-year-old boy who loves to sneak out of the house in drag have in common?

Rivett—newly engaged to the love of his life, Mona—will find out. But at what cost?

Because in the end, no one really gets out of the Terror Machine.

To finish this case, to destroy the cell, to save the city…

Rivett will rage like he’s never raged before.

A Rise of Oceania Novel

War has come to the darkest depths of the deepest oceans.

Mayor Truman McClusky of Trieste City is at war with the world’s superpowers. Laying claim to the resources of the ocean and its floor is the only way to survive in a world where Global Warming and rising sea levels ravage the surface. But when a Trieste City spy ends up dead―his body beaten beyond recognition―Mac realizes that his city is in mortal danger. The occupying force in Trieste knows more about his plans for independence than he thought, and they will stop at nothing to control Trieste and her people.

Mac flees with a small team that includes scientist and newcomer to the underwater city, Dr. Manesh Lazlow. Together they head for a secret base in the Mid-Atlantic Ridge where they plan to create new technologies to fight the superpowers for dominance over the oceans. But the French have picked up Mac’s scent and will stop at nothing to kill him. Mac must elude the French, protect his citizens against sabotage and spycraft, and discover the identity of a spy in his midst if he is going to save his city and compete with the superpowers. But he’s just a tiny player in the grand scheme of ocean politics. . . .

. . . unless he can get his new deep-sea engine working. With it he’ll be able to forge deeper than any other sub in the oceans. And if that happens, then all hell is about to break loose.

At six kilometers down.

Review of Erec Stebbins’ Latest Novel, China Girl

The focus of my blog is to review book series and not individual novels.

The focus of my blog is to review book series and not individual novels. But writers are going to continue writing novels within a series even after I have done my review, so I plan on reviewing the individual novels as they come into circulation.  Erec Stebbins has recently released book #6, China Girl, to the INTEL 1 series.


If you like wearing a MAGA hat while watching Sean Hannity on Fox News, believe that the Deep State is real, and proclaim that Donald Trump is the CHOSEN ONE, then you may not want to read Erec Stebbins latest addition to his Intel 1 series, China Girl.  Even though the names have been changed, it is pretty clear who the bad guys are in this story.  

China Girl is somewhat a continuation of the previous book in the series, Androcide.  It begins with two rouge INTEL 1 characters, former CIA operative Sara Houston, and former priest Francisco Lopez, behaving like domestic terrorist within a group known as El Marcado, whose goal is to destroy roads and bridges that are used to transport illegal immigrants across the border back into Mexico. In their intent to help immigrants, they come across some disturbing findings which forces them to seek help from their former employer INTEL 1. Additionally, two characters that made their debut in Androcide, undercover detective Grace Gone, and disgraced former detective Tyrell Sacker, also return in China Girl. Grace Gone is an interesting character in that she is a bit of a geek with a sixth sense that things are amiss. In China Girl, Gone begins investigating some suspicious government contracting which eventually leads to something too big for her to handle which ultimately requires the help from the folks at INTEL 1.

I have mixed feelings about China Girl. On one side, I felt that the storyline was too predictable and I knew pretty much from the beginning on how it was going to end. I also felt that with our overwhelming political environment these days, using a fictional version of our recent administration was something that, right now, I just didn’t want to deal with it. I applaud authors that take real world issues, such as climate change and emerging technologies, and incorporate it into fictional scenarios that enlightens to possible outcomes if we, as a society, don’t deal with these problems. But right now, the constant barrage in the news on our political climate, doesn’t really make me want to also have to confront it in my fictional readings. Perhaps at another time, but not right now. On the positive side, I enjoyed reading about the exploits of Grace Gone and Tyrell Sacker and hope that these characters return to future additions to the series.  So with this, I give China Girl a so-so score.

To learn more about the series check out the INTEL 1 series.
