Andrew’s Holiday Reading Recommendations

I hope you’re having a wonderful holiday season! Lee and I are hard at work on the next Reacher novel, and we’d like to say a big ‘thank you’ to everyone who read Better Off Dead. Your support, as always, is most appreciated.

Best wishes,


Holiday reading recommendations:

The Bloodless Boy by Robert J Lloyd – a classic historical mystery set in 17th century London – immersive, persuasive and plausible … and the science-vs-superstition narrative conflict seems shockingly timeless today.

Barbarossa: How Hitler Lost the War by [Jonathan Dimbleby]

Barbarossa by Jonathan Dimbleby – a masterful, accessible one-volume account of possibly the most pivotal military events in all of human history.

The Last Trial by [Scott Turow]

The Last Trial by Scott Turow – a suspenseful and meticulous legal thriller, as expected, but also a sensitive and touching exploration of ageing and the passage of time.

The Neanderthals Rediscovered by Dimitra Papagianni & Michael A. Morse – everything you think you know about our distant evolutionary cousins is wrong.  They were smarter, stronger and healthier than us – and much nicer.  Yet we survived and they didn’t.  Go figure.

State of Terror: The Unputdownable Thriller straight from the White House by [Hillary Rodham Clinton, Louise Penny]

State of Terror by Hilary Rodham Clinton & Louise Penny – don’t dismiss this just because of the celebrity factor – it’s a genuinely great thriller informed by personal experience, and written with style and panache.  What more could a reader want?
