I love that each month there is a new quote or line from a famous author on the cover of the enclosed pamphlet. To me it’s a sign of the thought that goes into each month’s selections.
This months descriptions of each book are vague which I am super excited about because the previous descriptions did nothing to make me want to read the books. The very brief and general story line made me open the jacket or flip the book over to find out what they are all about. I’m excited about the referral opportunities and the huge savings that could be had. I have to say that calling out that reviews are read and considered when trying to improve the entire subscription is amazing, I think it shows how much love, hard work and dedication go into this box.
The understated back side of the pamphlet just lets everyone know how to stay connected via social media. One of these days I’m going to have to figure out Twitter and Instagram in order to experience books from other reader’s points of view.
Cop Town by Karin Slaughter ($9.16):
I actually have read this book and found it to be a solid 4.5 out of 5 stars. The characters are very well developed without distracting the reader from the plot. It was well paced with a good mixture of action and mental investigation. I would highly recommend this novel.
Karin Slaughter, author of the bestselling Will Trent novels, is widely acclaimed as “one of the best crime novelists in America” (The Washington Post). Now she delivers her first stand-alone novel: an epic story of a city in the midst of seismic upheaval, a serial killer targeting cops, and a divided police force tasked with bringing a madman to justice.
Atlanta, 1974: As a brutal murder and a furious manhunt rock the city’s police department, Kate Murphy wonders if her first day on the job will also be her last. She’s determined to defy her privileged background by making her own way—wearing a badge and carrying a gun. But for a beautiful young woman, life will be anything but easy in the macho world of the Atlanta PD, where even the female cops have little mercy for rookies. It’s also the worst day possible to start given that a beloved cop has been gunned down, his brothers in blue are out for blood, and the city is on the edge of war.
Kate isn’t the only woman on the force who’s feeling the heat. Maggie Lawson followed her uncle and brother into the ranks to prove her worth in their cynical eyes. When she and Kate, her new partner, are pushed out of the citywide search for a cop killer, their fury, pain, and pride finally reach the boiling point. With a killer poised to strike again, they will pursue their own line of investigation, risking everything as they venture into the city’s darkest heart.
Relentlessly paced, acutely observed, wickedly funny, and often heartbreaking, Cop Town is Karin Slaughter’s most powerful novel yet—a tour de force of storytelling from our foremost master of character, atmosphere, and suspense.
The Burn Palace By Stephen Dobyns ($17.00)
After reading the back of this book I’m sold! Crime in a small New England town makes me think of my own hometown which never had any good drama.
“One of the best of the best…You can’t ask for more than this book gives. I loved it.” – Stephen King
“An exquisitely unexpected, delightfully believable exploration of what normal looks like when it goes through the (evil) looking glass.” —Oprah.com
The sleepy community of Brewster, Rhode Island, is just like any other small American town. It’s a place where most of its inhabitants will die blocks from where they were born; where gossip spreads like wildfire, and the big weekend entertainment is the inevitable fight at the local bar. But recently, something out of the ordinary—perhaps even supernatural—has been stirring. While packs of coyotes gather and a baby is stolen and replaced with a snake, a series of inexplicably violent acts confounds Detective Woody Potter—and inspires terror in the locals.
A Richard Russo small-town tableau crossed with a Stephen King thriller, The Burn Palace is a darkly funny, twisted portrait of chaos and paranoia that keeps readers guessing until the final pages.
I am so excited about this box, one new book, a new author and my favorite genre. The books that you receive in this subscription are typically a couple years old, which is why the price is so great, even though I have read Cop Town I’m excited that others get to enjoy this great book. Once again I was thrilled with my Thrill Seeker case!
