Book Review: The Midnight Line, by Lee Child

There are few authors whose books I buy almost immediately after the release. Lee Child is one such author. This book, the twenty second novel in the Jack Reacher series, made its way to my shelf thus, and I set about reading it eagerly.

Book Review: The Devil’s Prayer, by Luke Gracias

When it comes to the genre of thriller, the expectations are slightly more even before I start reading the book. It’s one of my favorite genres. With this book, it was the blurb that kind of appealed to me. The cover art was so-so.

Book Review: Tit for Tat, by Archana Sarat

They say a well told story doesn’t have to be very long. So many writers love writing short stories. This book takes the stories a notch further. These are flash fiction. Would they still be “thrilling”? I’ve read the author’s work before, and knew the genre would definitely play to her strengths.

So I was excited to pick this book to read.

Book Review: Birds of Prey, by Archana Sarat

I love reading crime thriller novels. The genre is such that, if written well, the novel manages to grip me. I think both the cover art and the title itself both appealed to the crime thriller lover. The blurb promised action – a serial killer on the loose, and a policeman trying to catch that killer. Could the book wow me?
