THE LAST DEAD GIRL by Harry Dolan
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Jan. 9, 2014

"As in his first two thrillers (Very Bad Men, 2011, etc.), Dolan plays out the complications with a spider's patience. This time, however, an unmemorable culprit makes his infernal logic seem just a tad less inevitable, scary and remorseless."

BOOK REVIEW

BAD THINGS HAPPEN by Harry Dolan
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: July 23, 2009

"On the other hand, Dolan has provided a seven-course banquet for readers with a taste for deliriously overplotted pulp with just enough polish to keep them from feeling guilty."
Dolan's debut thriller begins simply enough, with two men burying a third in a forested section of Ann Arbor's Marshall Park. From there, it gets ever more loopy, far-fetched and baroque. Read full book review >

HURRICANE HARRY by Judith Caseley
