BOOK REVIEW

ANGEL by Garry D. Kilworth
SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY
Released: May 1, 1996

"Impossible as it may seem to make San Francisco sound anonymous, Kilworth succeeds; still, the serviceable plot is packed with well-rendered incidents and intriguing, unsettling insights into the nature of angels and demons."
This rare US appearance for Kilworth (A Theater of Timesmiths, 1985)—he has a lengthy science fiction/fantasy track record in his native England, where Angel was first published in 1993—is set in San Francisco and boasts a rather colorless pair of detectives in pursuit of a pyromaniac angel.

BOOK REVIEW

ANGEL by Barbara Taylor Bradford
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: May 9, 1993

"Compared to peers like Steel and Krantz, Bradford is all elbows—but count on her rep to nudge this creaking craft up the charts."
Bradford has never really matched her A Woman of Substance (1979) in plot go-go and sentimental appeal. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

ANGEL by Nicole "Coco" Marrow
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Sept. 1, 2011

"An inconsistent and unsatisfying narrative that offers neither compelling characterization nor believable situations. The upshot: A pointless plot delivered in humdrum prose."
Marrow, arm-candy wife to rapper/actor Ice-T, and co-author Hayden, who teamed up with presidential daughter Susan Ford on her novel, ask readers to suspend their belief in what's real and what's not in this fantasy/romance. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

ANGEL by Nicholas Guild
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Nov. 1, 1995

"A curiosity for the genre, sort of like what might happen if Basic Instinct got crossed with It's a Wonderful Life."
Guild (The Blood Star, 1989, etc.) has been all over the fictional map in his writerly career, from WW II to ancient Assyria, but his latest—a psychothriller with crime-novel undertones—shows the novelist wearying of Nazis and slipping into a domesticated vein. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

Step aside, all you writers running on about the emptiness of small-town life. Read full book review >
