Speed Reader


Christopher Whitcomb
Little Brown

Whitcomb funnels 15 years of real-life FBI experience into a novel that deftly braids four narrative strands into a gripping counterterrorism thriller. By most accounts, Black is an action-packed, well-plotted page turner from a talented new voice in fiction.

The Siege of Salt Cove

Anthony Weller
W.W. Norton

This comic novel tells the story of a New England village that attempts to secede from the union after the state commands it to tear down its rickety but picturesque bridge. Narrated by 31 separate characters, The Siege of Salt Cave should be an impressive and enjoyably goofy small town fable.

The Narrows

Michael Connelly
Little Brown

By this point, Connelly's mystery thrillers have practically become an institution in and of themselves. With all the plot hooks and detail of its predecessors, The Narrows places Connelly's most popular character, former homicide cop Harry Bosch, on center stage as Bosch attempts to track down a serial killer nicknamed the Poet.

From Babel to Dragomans

Bernard Lewis
Oxford University Press

One of the world's most respected scholars of the Middle East brings together essays and speeches culled from 40 years of research and observation. It's acadamic tone might be off-putting to some readers, but for anyone seeking a comprehensive examination of this troubled region, From Babel to Dragomans is essential reading.
