Happy Halloween! (10/31/18)

Trick or treat, bags of sweets, ghosts are walking down the street… blah blah go read books!

THE RAVENMASTER: My Life with the Ravens at the Tower of London by Christopher Skaife

An Amazon Book of the Month!

“What a terrific book…I learned so much about Ravens, and even things I didn’t know about the Tower. It’s like spending a long evening with a bottle of whisky as a wise Ravenmaster tells you everything you need to know.”—Neil Gaiman (@neilhimself) on Twitter

“Skaife is a very good storyteller, and the book is full of the kind of anecdote that would make a great scene in a movie (like, for instance, the time one of the ravens orchestrated a daring escape from the Tower). A splendid and constantly surprising book.”—Booklist, starred review

Two Stars for A PLEASURE AND A CALLING

Our  librarian pal Robin Beerbower applauded our comparison of Phil Hogan’s totally creep-fabulous A PLEASURE AND A CALLING to Patricia Highsmith’s THE TALENTED MR. RIPLEY…  And now both Publishers Weekly and Booklist gave it starred reviews… My dear librarians, don’t miss the boat on this two-starred gem!

“British writer Hogan’s fourth novel is a gripping psychological thriller that pegs out the creep-o-meter with its chilling, original plot.  Hogan’s Mr. Heming is a monumentally diabolical character—the fact that he narrates the story further ups both the stakes and the tension. Readers won’t soon forget this first-rate, white-knuckle suspense novel.”–Publishers Weekly, starred & boxed review

“Delicious and addicting. William Heming joins the ranks of unforgettable, unreliable narrators in this gloriously creepy novel of psychological suspense.”–Booklist  starred review
