No one does thrillers quite like James Rollins does thrillers. His books are the benchmark all other authors in the genre strive to achieve. In Bloodline, the 8th book in the Sigma Force series, the best-selling author again shows why he is looked up to by his peers as the master.

Bloodline picks up shortly after the events of 2011’s The Devil Colony. Somali pirates hijack a yacht, kidnapping a pregnant young American woman and killing her husband. When Sigma Commander Gray Pierce is called in to lead a team to rescue the woman, he wonders why his team is being called in to deal with a simple hijacking. However, this is no simple hijacking. The hijackers want a lot more than a simple ransom and the victim is no average American. To rescue the woman, Gray and his team will have to once again face the constant thorn in their side — the Guild. Gray and the rest of Sigma Force again criss-cross the globe in their quest to stop the Guild’s plans to change the course of America’s future. Read the rest of this entry »

What would you do if could relive 7 hours of your life? Any 7 hours. What would you do? Would you seek to correct a mistake you had made? Would you spend time with a lost loved one? Would you get revenge on the person who you think ruined your life?

Those questions are at the heart of this unique collection of seven novellas from seven different authors. In each story, the enigmatic character who calls himself Thomas Constant appears to someone and offers them a unique proposition: they can go back and live any seven hours from their past, or they can live for seven more hours. Either way, after those seven hours, they will jump through time to the moment of their death. Read the rest of this entry »





Book Review – Eyes of Justice by Lis Wiehl with April Henry

Eyes of Justice

By Lis Wiehl with April Henry

In Stores Now

The members of the Triple Threat Club—crime reporter Cassidy, FBI agent Nicole, and federal prosecutor Allison—are no strangers to solving crimes. Former federal prosecutor and Fox News analyst Lis Wiehl, with the help of April Henry, has already put the trio through their paces in three previous adventures.

In Eyes of Justice, the fourth entry in the series, Wiehl shakes things up, with one of the club’s members murdered. The remaining two members become obsessed with finding the killer, but does the killer also have them in his/her sights? Enter Ophelia — a rich, reclusive private investigator who wants to help the club find out who killed their friend.

Eyes of Justice is an action-packed novel, full of twists and turns that will keep you off-balance and guessing about the killer’s identity until the very end. And even at the end, there are unanswered questions. So is Ophelia officially the third member of the Triple Threat Club? Will there be more Triple Threat Club books? Only time will tell for sure, but it certainly seems likely that the club has found its replacement member.

This book was my first experience with the Triple Threat Club, but I did not feel like I was left in the dark or confused because I hadn’t read the first three books. I enjoyed the realness of the characters and the way they interacted. Their unique personalities and abilities combine for an enjoyable read. I love a great mystery, and this definitely was one.

On a scale of 1 to 5, I give Eyes of Justice a 4.
