A Tracker’s Tale (a book review)

With the proliferation of vampire/werewolf/whatever novels over the past decade-plus, you need some serious confidence to throw your hat in that ring. A writer needs to differentiate themselves from everything else out there, whether through world-building or a clever hook, and they need to do it without looking like they’re trying too hard. In A Tracker’s... Continue Reading →

Mayflower (a book review)

After a brief hiatus for real life, let’s get back to business with some other real life: non-fiction! Mayflower, by Nathaniel Philbrick, is, as you may have guessed, an account of the settlers who crossed the Atlantic on a ship called the Mayflower. Often referred to as Pilgrims, these immigrants were not the first to... Continue Reading →

Act of War (a book review)

When we last left our titular hero, Scot Harvath, he was doing super-awesome bad-guy killing for America! Now, he’s ready for covert action, called upon to engage in unsanctioned international kidnapping and torture (for America!) so that he can help stop the next great war. In Act of War, the intelligence community is convinced that... Continue Reading →

The Eye of Heaven (a book review)

I’ve had an unlucky streak of reading several “meh” books lately. I don’t review books I didn’t like, but a couple of these weren’t bad. So, here’s the best of the “I liked it, but…” books. Just remember, it’s subjective. My like may be your love. I haven’t read Clive Cussler for years, and for... Continue Reading →

The Black Country (a book review)

At this point, author Alex Grecian has several more "Scotland Yard's Murder Squad" novels out and about. The Black Country is the second one in the series and also the second one I have read after the outstanding The Yard (read the review here). The Black Country differs quite a bit from the first novel. The locale is... Continue Reading →

2017 Reviewed!

2017 is officially in the rearview mirror, which means it’s that time of year again, when the underworked and overpaid staff here at MojoFiction answer important questions from our readers about things and stuff that happened in the past year. Questions ranged across many subject matters, so we picked the best of the best. On... Continue Reading →

The Gods of Guilt (a book review)

It’s no secret that I think Michael Connelly is a top mystery writer. I read a short interview awhile back (can’t remember when, sorry) where he stated that he mostly makes it up as he goes along. I’m sure he already has an endgame, but it sounds like he’s willing to let the characters lead... Continue Reading →

The Templars (a book review)

  Ah, the Templars. So much mystery, so much legend, so many trashy adventure novels written about them. And I mean trashy in a good way, because I bought those adventure novels. God help me, I bought them. But who were the Templars really? There are actually a lot books written about them, so which... Continue Reading →

Heartbreak Hotel (a book review)

  Bias alert! I love mystery novels. Now you know. I’ve now read three of these Alex Delaware novels by Jonathan Kellerman. He’s written a lot more than three, so it’s a wonder I’ve only just now made it this far. Here’s what happened: I found the first one I tried on the boring side.... Continue Reading →
