Review: Alex Berenson’s The Night Ranger

Until now, Alex Berenson’s John Wells series was one of diminishing returns. After an amazing debut in The Faithful Spy, the thriller in which we were introduced to the CIA operative that nearly went too deep in his undercover role with the Taliban, and a good sophomore outing, there’s been little to write about. Fortunately, […]

Book Review: SecondWorld, a Sci-Fi Medical Thriller by Jeremy Robinson

The Bottom Line: This stunner by Jeremy Robinson takes a horrific Nazi biological experiment and twists it into a futuristic end-of-times adventure. You’ll find yourself rooting for Lincoln Miller, the razor-sharp NCIS agent who is drawn perfectly human in this otherwise off-its-rocker world. Fair warning: the first chapter of this otherwise great book is so campy, and its depictions […]
