The Shadow of Seth by Tom Llewellyn

Review: The Shadow of Seth by Tom Llewellyn

She left. It was the last time I’d ever see her alive.

Growing up I read a lot of Hardy Boy books, I was always checking them out from the library and buying my own at Borders. I may have moved on to adult thrillers, however I found reading The Shadow of Seth to be refreshing, as it’s the middle ground between mystery books for children and mystery books for adults.

F Train by RIchard Hilary Weber (A Brooklyn Crimes Novel)

Review: F Train by Richard Hilary Weber (A Brooklyn Crimes Novel)

The book’s synopsis is what piqued my interest, as it’s not your typical murder. All the murder books I’ve read usually involve a gun or knife, whereas this one has to do with a poisonous gas in a subway car. Pretty original if you ask me.

The first 25% of the book seemed interesting. Then the next 50% was really dull. Then for the final 25% it picked up again. Even though the final 25% was decent, overall still felt “meh” to me.

Hostile Takeover by Shane Kuhn (John Lago Thriller #2)

Review: Hostile Takeover by Shane Kuhn (John Lago Thriller #2)

There are your typical run of the mill thrillers and there are thrillers that stand out because of their uniqueness. This is one of those thrillers that stand out among the rest, as I haven’t read any novels that even closely resembles Hostile Takeover.

Although this is the second book in the series, it can be read standalone — although I wouldn’t have minded having a little more backstory on John Lago by reading the first thriller in the series. Not to worry, though, as I’m ordering the first book soon – which, by the way, is going to be a major motion picture at some point in time. It’s been said that the John Lago series is like Dexter working in the office. Now I haven’t watched Dexter at all, but this book convinced me I need to so I’ve loaded that up on Netflix to begin watching.

Exposure: A Sociologist Explores Sex, Society, and Adult Entertainment by Chauntelle Tibbals

Review: Exposure: A Sociologist Explores Sex, Society, and Adult Entertainment by Chauntelle Tibbals

I saw Exposure listed on NetGalley, and, being a guy, of course I was interested. A book about sex? Sweet! I’m all for learning about the porn industry. After all, sex sells, and yet it’s such a taboo subject in our culture. Many people do it, and yet it’s still frowned upon, talked in secret, and misinformation (or lack of information) is given to teenagers. So, Chauntelle Tibbals set out to explore the adult entertainment industry.
