    Griffin's popular Badge of Honor police series returns, with a story of murder and lawlessness as compelling as today's headlines. Homicide Sergeant Matthew Payne is used to murder, but lately there's been an awful lot of it in Philadelphia. A gangland shooting in a popular tourist location has left six dead, most of them innocent bystanders, and days later the body of a headless Latina turns up in the Schuykill River.

    "Disappointed"
    Overall

    This is the first WEB Griffen book that I did not enjoy. I feel the violence was way overdone to the point that it gave me nightmares. I realize that this was a collaboration, but I would like to warn future readers of the gratuitous violence.

    Flyboys is the true story of young American airmen who were shot down over Chichi Jima. Eight of these young men were captured by Japanese troops and taken prisoner. Another was rescued by an American submarine and went on to become president. The reality of what happened to the eight prisoners has remained a secret for almost 60 years.

    "Too Much Cannibalism"
    Overall

    The cannibalism and the torture in this book forced me to stop reading it. It was just too gruesome to continuel;

    He is a good man, a brilliant corporate executive, an honest, handsome family man admired by men and desired by women. But a lifetime ago Ben Tyson was a lieutenant in Vietnam.There the men under his command committed a murderous atrocity -- and together swore never to tell the world what they had done. Now the press, army justice, and the events he tried to forget have caught up with Ben Tyson.

    Diana says: "Nelson does it again"
    "Wait for the Abridged Version!"
    Overall

    Although I truly enjoy most of the books written by Nelson DeMille, and Scott Brick is one of my favourite readers, I found that the book really dragged in the middle. I should have paid more attention to the review that stated he had more information than he needed concerning military courtroom procedure. After all, 28 hours of a book, unless it is a gripper, can prove to be boring as this one did.

  • Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee: An Indian History of the American West

    Story
    (392)

    Dee Brown's eloquent, meticulously documented account of the systematic destruction of the American Indian during the second half of the 19th century uses council records, autobiographies, and firsthand descriptions. Brown allows great chiefs and warriors of the Dakota, Ute, Sioux, Cheyenne, and other tribes to tell us in their own words of the battles, massacres, and broken treaties that finally left them demoralized and defeated.

    Reginald says: "A wrenching introduction to this history."
    "Could not finish this book"
    Overall

    I loved the book "A Sorrow in our Heart - the life of Tecumseh". I thought that this would be similar, but the systematic killing of the Indian people with a complete lack of understanding of their way of life made me ill. It reminded me more of "Shake Hands with the Devil" - the story of the atrocities perpetrated in Rwanda.

    Story

    In this Hugo-nominated novel, an alien walks into a museum and asks if he can see a paleontologist. But the arachnid ET hasn't come aboard a rowboat with the Pope and Stephen Hawking (although His Holiness does request an audience later). Landing at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, the spacefarer, Hollus, asks to compare notes on mass extinctions with resident dino-scientist Thomas Jericho.

    Ione says: "Interesting book, very enjoyable narration"
    "Very Disappointing"
    Overall

    Expecting an intelligent discussion of creationism and evolution (with some possible math thrown in), I was most disappointed in this book. I was expecting much more, and the ending left me hanging.

    Story

    The Executive Board of an exclusive men's club meets to talk about 9/11 and finalize a retaliation plan, known by a code name: Wild Fire. That weekend, a member of the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force is found dead. It's up to Detective John Corey and his wife, FBI Agent Kate Mayfield, to unravel a terrifying plot that starts with the Custer Hill Club and ends with American cities locked in the crosshairs of a nuclear device.

    Joseph says: "Good, but the series is getting forced."
    "Over the top Corey"
    Overall

    I usually love the John Corey character (Plum Island, The Lion's Game, Night Fall), but for parts of this book, this John Corey character was too glib, too macho,and he stretched the limits of believability. His wife, Kate, also caused me pause in what she constantly tolerated in his personality.
    I always like Scott Brick, but I will be more critical should another John Corey novel appear.

    After Tripoli declared war on the United States in 1801, Barbary pirates captured 300 U.S. sailors and marines. President Jefferson sent navy squadrons to the Mediterranean, but he also authorized a secret mission to overthrow the government of Tripoli. He chose an unlikely diplomat, William Eaton, to lead the mission, but before Eaton departed, Jefferson grew wary of the affair and withdrew his support.

    Stewart Kennedy says: "EXCELLENT"
    "Look for abridged version"
    Overall

    The story was good, but the detail excessive. An abridged version stressing fewer peripheral events and characters would have been more enjoyable.
