BOOK REVIEW

MAXIMUM SECURITY by Rose Connors
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: July 13, 2004

"No ethical quiddities, no fraught cross-examinations, no courtroom coups, no big surprises of any kind whatsoever. After two splendid outings (Temporary Sanity, 2003, etc.), Marty's certainly entitled to a breather, and that's exactly what this fast-moving, deeply ordinary case is."

BOOK REVIEW

FALSE TESTIMONY by Rose Connors
MYSTERY THRILLER

BOOK REVIEW

ALL THE WRONG PLACES by Philip Connors
BIOGRAPHY & MEMOIR
Released: Feb. 16, 2015

"Unlike other, neater narratives of being lost and found, Connors' story—told with harrowing insight and fierce prose—is messy and incomplete and makes no apologies for being anything but."
