Edge of Sanity

It is rare that I read a 300-plus page book and ask myself what just happened but that was the case with Edge of Sanity. By the time it was finished I wasn’t sure just how I had managed to spend hours reading what felt like a short – and extremely unbelievable – episode of Mission Impossible ...

Heart of Danger

Lisa Marie Rice’s latest, Heart of Danger, is the first in her new series Ghost Ops. The premise of the series is fairly outrageous. The books are set ten years after the death of Osama Bin Laden and the heroes are members of the “famed SEAL Team Six” that killed him. (Bin Laden was indeed tak ...
