MOONRISE by Mitchell Smith

KINGDOM RIVER by Mitchell Smith
Released: July 1, 2003

"Battle plans, not ice, form the new enemy of survival. Well done."
Second in the Snowfall Trilogy, a rousing story of wilderness survival as civilization regresses when a mile-high wall of ice stretches Atlantic to Pacific and book-learning has all but vanished. (One must suspend disbelief that all books were burned for heat while hundreds of millions of people froze.) Read full book review >

REPRISAL by Mitchell Smith
Released: May 10, 1999

"Instead of the usual fruits of the genre—creeping menace and empty surprises—Smith offers something rarer: a fine sense of the ambiguous intimacy between predator and prey."
A tense, low-key thriller that takes a poet and professor, strips everybody she loves away from her, and then watches to see what she'll do. Read full book review >
SACRIFICE by Mitchell Smith
Released: Jan. 13, 1997

"A gritty and bleakly gripping walk on the wild side of the Sunbelt."
An engrossing blue-collar thriller from Smith (Karma, l994, etc.) in which an ex-con, almost ready to go straight, taps underworld contacts for help in tracking down the serial killer who butchered his daughter. Read full book review >
KARMA by Mitchell Smith
Released: Nov. 15, 1994

"On balance, good Karma. (Literary Guild selection)"
For the first two-thirds of his new novel, Smith (Due North, 1992, etc.) can't decide whether he's writing a study of one man's Vietnam post-traumatic stress syndrome or a vulnerable-loner- fights-against-impossible-odds thriller. Read full book review >
DUE NORTH by Mitchell Smith
Released: Nov. 1, 1992

"Smith's dramatic scaffolding sticks out—Sarah's return north is as inevitable as her contrived reencounter with the bear—but the hard beauty of Alaska shines through it, and marvelous Sarah walks it with an honesty and grit that make her unforgettable."
Smith likes to test his heroes against harsh environments—a lady cop patrolling mean streets (Daydreams, 1981); a college professor cast into prison (Stone City, 1988). Read full book review >
