Striking Force

Author: L. K. Jackson Publisher: Horwitz Published: 1965 Book No: 32 Striking Force is another men on a mission title from Australian publisher Horwitz. This tale is pretty grim, focusing on the fear of going into battle – and author L.K. Jackson does quite a good job of ratcheting up that tension. Almost too good […]

A Mouth Full of Blood

Author: Eric Beetner Published: July 2012 I have to admit I am biased. It is no secret that I have written a Fight Card novel and have spent the last six months reading fight fiction and watching boxing movies.

The Judas Strain

Author: James Rollins Publisher: Orion Books Published: 2007 I have a few James Rollins novels, but The Judas Strain was the first Sigma Force novel that I have read – I think it is the 4th in the series.

Comeback

Author: Richard Stark (Donald Westlake) Publisher: University Of Chicago Press (Reprint edition) Published: 1997 I have a hand-written list on the fridge of items that I should own, but don’t.

Winter Chill

Author: Jon Cleary Publisher: Harper Collins Published: 1995 Book No: 12 I don’t know if Jon Cleary is still alive, but if he is, he’d be 95 years old. His Australian crime fiction legacy is staggering. Actually that statement probably is unfair, as not all of his books are crime thrillers. The first Cleary book […]

The Naked Earth

Author: Heinz G. Konsalik Publisher: Panther Books Published: 1961 Pictured, 1962 paperback edition Just look at that cover art. What does it say to you? To me, it looks like a story set in a Nazi concentration camp, wherein the female prisoners are subjected to all sorts of medical experiments – mostly of a sexual […]
