BOOK REVIEW

BLOOD AUTUMN by William Sanders
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: April 12, 1995

"Roper's third case features nicely depressive Oklahoma scenery, though the Native Americans are a bit too monotonously militant and the ending packs one twist too many."
Rita Ninekiller's Cherokee cousin Chris Badwater, who's been jailed for killing Sizemore County (Oklahoma) Sheriff Rowland Jordan, says he's innocent, even though the murder weapon was his own tomahawk. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

McNALLY'S DILEMMA by Lawrence Sanders
Released: July 5, 1999

"If Lardo doesn't win any new friends for the franchise, he won't disappoint old hands either."
You'd have to be a sharper-eyed sleuth than foppish Archy McNally to find Vincent Lardo's name in tiny print on the copyright page, but Lardo, not the late Sanders, is the author of Archy's eighth adventure (McNally's Trial, 1995, etc.). Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

THE TIMOTHY FILES by Lawrence Sanders
Released: June 15, 1987

"Grossly synthetic and thoroughly unappealing: only for Sanders' most undiscriminating fans."
Three limp, unconnected episodes featuring Timothy Cone, "the Wall Street dick"—in an unusually sloppy, thoroughly hackneyed offering from an uneven, crass mass-producer (The Eighth Commandment, The Fourth Deadly Sin, The Passion of Molly T., etc.). Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

THE TANGENT FACTOR by Lawrence Sanders
Released: April 17, 1978

"But macho-zombie Tangent and his gross confederate, Sam Leiberman, set the tone for a vulgar and sluggish tourist trap that manages to make deepest West Africa look and sound like a corner in New York's garment district."
Even the most undiscriminating patrons of Sanders' fiction factory will find this sequel to The Tangent Objective (in which mercenary oil-man Peter Tangent helped Napoleonic Obiri Anokye to depose King Prempeh of Asante) shamelessly conveyor-belted and totally resistible. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

THE PASSION OF MOLLY T. by Lawrence Sanders
Released: Sept. 17, 1984

"But, though limply idiotic as suspense and uncommonly vile as an attempt at misogynistic titillation, this is sure to sell fairly well—like Peter S.—thanks to the Sanders byline and the below-the-belt, lowest-common-denominator approach."
Sanders, never the most tasteful of potboiler-makers, continues his descent into sheer dumb vulgarity—following The Seduction of Peter S. with a neanderthal political/sexual thriller about the feminist threat of the future. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

OUR REVOLUTION by Bernie Sanders
BIOGRAPHY & MEMOIR
Released: Nov. 15, 2016

"There's not much what-if here and certainly no indecision. Instead, as if rallying the troops, Sanders writes confidently of a program that's sure to be revisited in 2020."
A dark horse speaks, advancing, after the fact, "an agenda for a new America." Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

RACHEL'S SECRET by Shelly Sanders
CHILDREN'S
Released: April 16, 2012

"Critical for its underexplored subject. (historical note, glossary) (Historical fiction. 10-15)"
This novelization of the 1903 Kishinev pogrom graphically describes the carnage as Christian Russians slaughter their Jewish fellow townspeople. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

Released: Aug. 13, 1983

"Crass stuff, then, neither funny nor involving, and more like a pornfilm scenario (without the hard-core porn) than a novel—but sure to attract an audience with the Sanders byline, the intriguing opening pages, and the heavily sexual premise."
The smirky, undramatic rise of a male prostitute—in a long, frankly plotless novel (171 teensy chapters) that offers Sanders' cheery vulgarity without any of his talent for mystery/suspense. Read full book review >
