Death du Jour
Death du Jour
by Kathy Reichs
Edition: Mass Market Paperback
Price: CDN$ 9.89
96 used & new from CDN$ 0.01

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, July 15 2004
Reichs does a nice job of weaving this story together. It was a little slow in the beginning, but came on strong late in the book. If you like stories about forensics, you will enjoy this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hooked from the first chapter, July 7 2004
Silva hooked me into this novel in the first chapter and never let up. I won't repeat the story line here; but will tell you that the twists and turns of this story will keep you turning the pages until the end.
Silva takes you through the streets of Zurich, Vienna, Paris, London, Corsica, and others in an exciting and thought provoking novel. The history concerning the stolen art by the Nazis during WWII was especially interesting. Enjoy this book.

Inner Sanctum
Inner Sanctum
by Stephen Frey
Edition: Mass Market Paperback
48 used & new from CDN$ 0.01

3.0 out of 5 stars Good read, but not his best, July 4 2004
This is an enjoyable book, although not Frey's best. This book will take you through many twists and turns in a fast paced action thriller. It's definitely worth reading, but don't get your hopes up too high -- especially if you are expecting a thriller to match his book The Takeover.

Silent Partner
Silent Partner

2.0 out of 5 stars Snore!, July 3 2004
This book is definitely not his best. After reading The Take Over and Inner Sanctum, I expected much better. The story was just too predictable and not a very good read.

Dark Paradise: A Novel
Dark Paradise: A Novel
by Tami Hoag
Edition: Mass Market Paperback
Price: CDN$ 9.89
96 used & new from CDN$ 0.01

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best, but enjoyable, July 3 2004
This is the first book that I have read by Tami Hoag. This is really a romance novel, disguised as a mystery. That said, it was an enjoyable book to read. Slow at times, but during these times, you get a good understanding of the main characters. The ending was predictable, but I would have been mad if it ended any other way.

White Death
White Death
by Clive Cussler
Edition: Mass Market Paperback
Price: CDN$ 9.89
78 used & new from CDN$ 0.01

2.0 out of 5 stars If you've read others by Cussler, don't bother with this one, July 3 2004
If you've ever read a Clive Cussler book, don't waste your money on this one, it is the same old story. In this book, an evil corporation is threatening to take over the seas and destroy the environment. Kurt Austin is called in to save the day -- are you asleep yet?
I give this book two stars because it is ok if it is your first Cussler book. I've read several of his books however, and this one was a waste of time for me. The ending is pretty corny as well. I don't think I'll bother with any more Cussler books for awhile.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW. Great Read!, July 3 2004
This review is from: 24 Hours (Mass Market Paperback)
I could not put this book down. It was my first book by Greg Iles so I didn't know what to expect. I am hooked. Fast paced, spine tingling, full of twists and turns. Great book.
