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 →

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.

The characters do have some recurring arcs and the occasional dramatic development usually reserved for... Continue Reading →

Virginia Blythe is an antiques specialist at Gable & Co., an auction house in Toronto, Canada. While working alone late one night at the auction house, she hears a ghostly wailing from the dark corners of the basement. It’s not the first time someone has heard voices from the basement, but the last one who... Continue Reading →

THE HOUSE OF SILK (a book review)

A Sherlock Holmes Joint We here at MojoFiction have quickly blown through several books lately (that’s about several more than usual), so we’re really proud of ourselves and we thought we’d post an extra book report or two. We've been reading some heady stuff lately in the department of science, philosophy, and history, so this... Continue Reading →
