    When Ron Williamson signed with the Oakland A's in 1971, he said goodbye to his hometown of Ada, Oklahoma, to pursue his dreams of big-league glory. Six years later he was back, his dreams broken by a bad arm and bad habits. He moved in with his mother and slept 20 hours a day on her sofa. In 1982, a 21-year-old cocktail waitress in Ada named Debra Sue Carter was raped and murdered, and for reasons that were never clear, police suspected Ron Williamson and his friend Dennis Fritz.

    As is quoted in this well written piece..."The only difference between fiction and non-fiction is fiction must be plausible."

    This story is so amazing that if taken to an editor and billed as the latest novel, the editor would pass saying it just isn't believable. This is an entertaining and enjoyable read.

    At 34, Internet entrepreneur Ryan Perry seemed to have the world in his pocket - until the first troubling symptoms appeared out of nowhere. Within days, he's diagnosed with incurable cardiomyopathy and finds himself on the waiting list for a heart transplant; it's his only hope, and it's dwindling fast. Ryan is about to lose it all...his health, his girlfriend Samantha, and his life.

    Overall

    Simply awful. I don't know who wrote this tripe, but certainly not one of my favorite authors. The real pity here is the fact that many aspects of the plot were set-ups for (what could've been) some really far out, interesting stuff.... the kind of things you'd expect from Koontz. Very disappointing.

    In his final hours in the Oval Office, the outgoing President grants a controversial last-minute pardon to Joel Backman, a notorious Washington power broker who has spent the last six years hidden away in a federal prison. What no one knows is that the President issues the pardon only after receiving enormous pressure from the CIA. It seems Backman, in his power broker heyday, may have obtained secrets that compromise the world's most sophisticated satellite surveillance system.

    Overall

    I'm a Grisham fan, but this fell far short of the mark. The theme is a departure from the usual courtroom drama. It's clear that Mr. Grisham wanted to explore new territory. However, his love for all things Italian was clear after the second chapter; didn't need to wait for the author's comments at the end. Reading about a guy learning Italian for chapter after chapter is as much fun as....reading about a guy learning Italian. After chapter 4, I wanted to scream "I get it already, he’s learning Italian!" In addition, the story is left with so many 'loose ends' that I’m puzzled as to how this got by editors. Really disappointing book.
