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.
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 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 – 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 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?
