Showcase: Ring of Fire by Brad Taylor

I’ve recently started binge reading Brad Taylor’s Pike Logan Series and am thoroughly enjoying it! I started the series a few days before Christmas with One Rough Man and am now in the middle of book 5 The Polaris Protocol. I won’t be caught up with the series by next Tuesday when Ring of Fire, the newest entry, is released, but I do have it pre-ordered so it’ll be loaded and ready to go when I do finally get caught up.

In the next thrilling novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling Mitch Rapp series, the anti-terrorism operative heads to Pakistan to confront a mortal threat he may not be prepared for. In fact, this time he might have met his match.

Review: Before the Fall by Noah Hawley

Review: Before the Fall by Noah Hawley

On a foggy summer night, eleven people–ten privileged, one down-on-his-luck painter–depart Martha’s Vineyard on a private jet headed for New York. Sixteen minutes later, the unthinkable happens: the plane plunges into the ocean. The only survivors are Scott Burroughs–the painter–and a four-year-old boy, who is now the last remaining member of an immensely wealthy and powerful media mogul’s family.

With chapters weaving between the aftermath of the crash and the backstories of the passengers and crew members–including a Wall Street titan and his wife, a Texan-born party boy just in from London, a young woman questioning her path in life, and a career pilot–the mystery surrounding the tragedy heightens.

Some might call this true love. Others might ask why Grace never answers the phone. Or how she can never meet for coffee, even though she doesn’t work. How she can cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim. And why there are bars on one of the bedroom windows.
