I had just started a new engineering contract in a northern city in England far from home, home being the shores of Portsmouth on the southern sea front of England at the time. Historical: When Sam Adams turned the Boston Massacre into a call for revolution, he neglected to mention that one of the men killed was shot not by the British but by someone firing from a second story window. Very few books drive me to write reviews as soon as I'm done reading them, either because they stir very strong feelings of irritation and dislike or because they are so absolutely brilliant.

He encounters hitchhiker Patty, who is being hunted by violent trucker Red. Together, however, the stories take the shape of the story of a guilt-wracked, damaged young man, who becomes twisted by the lack of morals around him, and the easy proximity of everyone in Naples to crime. Compiled Aug. 1999, updated regularly. And there is something quite fairy-tale-ish in the idea of someone called Wolf living in a wood.

A group of brokerage firm employees trek to the rural town of Saengchori and encounter bizarre events and quirky residents - all of which cover up a darker, deeper secret. In a mystery, the protagonist – usually a detective or amateur sleuth – must gather evidence, uncover clues, and suss out suspects to solve the puzzle. A very good thriller with multiple layers that appear to be not connected only to turn out to be the links of a jigsaw puzzle. I’ve seen novels that were called one thing at the query stage, something else at the submission stage, and still something else at the publication stage.

Number-one bestselling author Clare Mackintosh set the bar very high with her big twist debut I Let You Go and her follow up I See You, so my expectations are also very high. However, his novel Mildred Pierce (1941) is really about the rise to success of an ordinary housewife developing her entrepreneurial skills and—legally—outsmarting her business rivals, and the domestic trouble caused by her success, with, in turn, her husband, her daughter and her lover turning against her.

My intention was to write a novel that married the playful comedy of Marc Norman and Tom Stoppard’s Shakespeare in Love to the unflinching feminism of Virginia Woolf’s meditations on Shakespeare’s sister in A Room of One’s Own. Or perhaps your detective is a complete klutz and doesn’t consider himself a strong or smart person. However, if you're interested, you can join in the discussion over on Facebook. The film is Tarantino’s most famous and the film that cemented his name and style in Hollywood.

The verbal gamesmanship can be enjoyable, particularly when practiced by a wit like Sophie Hannah, who specializes in the apologias of middle-class women with incurable cases of the existential jitters. The crime is in the word ‘murder’ in the title, obviously. The tales vary in length because there’s no template for how long a good short story should be, and when the theme is right, and the observation is precise, they just work. Gaus teaches chemistry at the College of Wooster in Wooster, Ohio, but for the past quarter century he's also traveled Amish backroads, making friends while collecting stories and anecdotes.

His latest novel, The Poe Shadow, is a thriller centered around the mysterious death of Edgar Allan Poe. But here's the thing - looking at the list created by the Amazon editors (who had meetings and discussions about what were the 'best' books in various categories in their eyes), it's pretty clear they have felt the same. You'll find a wide range of pictures here, from classic film noirs starring Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall to gritty '70s crime dramas to modern actioners that will have you in suspense from start to finish.
