BOOK REVIEW

WITH A PASSION PUT TO USE by Keith McCarthy
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Sept. 1, 2008

"McCarthy mixes his trademark gripping forensics with a baffling puzzle that spins off twist after twist and agonizing dilemmas for his regulars—all in all, the complete mystery package."
Pathologist John Eisenmenger, his live-in solicitor Helena Flemming and his friend-plus DI Beverley Wharton—none of whom ever seems to have a case that seems remotely normal (The Rest Is Silence, 2007, etc.)—are stretched to their limits in their sixth. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

THE FINAL ANALYSIS by Keith McCarthy

Released: June 10, 2005

"McCarthy's sardonic wit leavens a tale as grimly intense as Eisenmenger's first two adventures (The Silent Sleep of the Dying, 2004, etc.)."

BOOK REVIEW

THE TASTE OF WORMWOOD by Keith McCarthy
Released: Nov. 1, 2012

"Fans will race to the end, if only to see whether Beverley, who faces more of the same love-hate relationship with Eisenmenger, the agony of second-guessing herself, and the usual professional and personal infighting, will survive to face another grueling case next year."
DCI Beverley Wharton (Soul Seeker, 2011, etc.) finds that her new rank does indeed bring her "more pay, but a lot more shit" in this grim tale of smuggling within smuggling. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

KEITH RICHARDS by Christopher Sandford
BIOGRAPHY & MEMOIR
Released: April 1, 2004

"Less than a glance at what drove 'the man death forgot.'"
Hollow if high-revved portrait of the Rolling Stones guitarist and songwriter from rock-music biographer Sandford (Mick Jagger, 1994, etc.). The only thing missing, tellingly, is his subject's voice. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

A largely sympathetic portrait of the recently deceased young artist whose works moved from the subway platforms of N.Y.C. to the walls of galleries and museums throughout the world. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

KEITH RICHARDS by Victor Bockris
BIOGRAPHY & MEMOIR
Released: Sept. 1, 1992

"Interesting, and probably choice fare for Richards fans, but hardly gospel. (B&w photographs—not seen.)"

BOOK REVIEW

NOR ALL YOUR TEARS by Keith McCarthy
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: April 1, 2012

"Though the locals complain that murder victims seem to pile up in Dr. Elliott's wake, that's no more than a convention of the genre. The real problem here is the number of independent malefactors working at cross-purposes to keep the population down."
Dr. Lance Elliot (Dying to Know, 2010) returns to deal with the ever-widening contagion of homicide that bids fair to decimate Croydon. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

SOUL SEEKER by Keith McCarthy
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: May 1, 2011

BOOK REVIEW

CORPUS DELICTI by Keith McCarthy
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Feb. 1, 2010

"More subdued than Eisenmenger's florid first five exercises in grim forensics (With a Passion Put to Use, 2008, etc.), though a wild finale in the bowels of a funeral home is guaranteed to quicken the pulse."
A high-profile disappearance battles a low-profile murder for the attention of DI Beverley Wharton. Read full book review >
