BOOK REVIEW

THE NEXT ONE TO FALL by Hilary Davidson
Released: Feb. 14, 2012

"The mystery is a bit over the top, but Lily's feelings for her sister ring painfully true, and Davidson's rendering of Machu Picchu and Cusco would merit a pisco sour toast even from the great Jan Morris."
An attempt to overcome grief with a trip to fascinating Machu Picchu leads to even more wild intrigue. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

THE DAMAGE DONE by Hilary Davidson
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Oct. 1, 2010

"Davidson's first mystery follows 18 nonfiction books. The story is zealously overplotted, but Lily's emotional center is true, and her career as a travel writer might make her a decent candidate for more temperate adventures."
Even death doesn't stop the family's black sheep from causing more problems. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

EVIL IN ALL ITS DISGUISES by Hilary Davidson
Released: March 5, 2013

"Lily's best friend Jesse, a sardonic gay man (The Next One to Fall, 2012, etc.), appears all too briefly, and her romance with Bruxton of the NYPD is too contrived, but there are tender glimpses of her failed relationships with Sklar and Claudia."
A press junket to Acapulco turns deadly. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

THE INVESTIGATIONS OF AVRAM DAVIDSON by Avram Davidson
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Feb. 5, 1999

Much-honored sf/fantasy writer Davidson (1923—93) was also a master of the mystery short story, argues his friend Richard Lupoff in his warmly appreciative introduction, and adduces in evidence 13 stories ranging in their settings from China to Olde New York, and running from a new twist on the old tale of the vanished bride to a grimly satisfying anecdote of slavery and the law.

BOOK REVIEW

ELIXIR by Hilary Duff
ADVENTURE
Released: Oct. 12, 2010

"Nice-guy supporters will resent the bum rap Duff gives to Ben, Clea's other admirer, but they're the wrong audience for this purple, obsessive, murderrific series opener. (Paranormal romance/horror. YA)"
Ludicrous wish-fulfillment trappings surround immortality, gore and passion. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

PERMANENT ROSE by Hilary McKay
CHILDREN'S
Released: June 1, 2005

"This fine, funny sequel, with its wonderful dialogue and utterly effortless-seeming weave of plots and characters, stands on its own, but readers will certainly want to get their hands on the first two. (Fiction. 9-12)"
Readers who have fallen in love with the eccentric, cheerfully chaotic Casson family from the award-winning Saffy's Angel (2002) and Indigo's Star (2004) may initially resent the intrusion of David, the enormous ex-tormenter of Indigo, who seems as if he'll never be accepted into the fold.
