ENDGAME IN BERLIN by William Harrington
Released: Dec. 28, 1991

"The industrial gimmick easily subs for the old military problems; Berlin looks terrific; and middle age runs circles around youth."
Political realignments bring new ends to the spying business but the means stay the same—in a fine story of industrial espionage by the author of Virus, For the Defense, etc. The computer gap neatly replaces the missile gap in Harrington's clever post-cold-war thriller. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

A BROTHER TO DRAGONS by Kent Harrington
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: April 27, 1993

"Okay, maybe the Sicilian-Irish connection is a stretch, but the tension is quite satisfactory, the romance is sexy, the scenery's gritty, and there are lots of appealing supporting roles, including a staunchly independent Jewish New York cop."

BOOK REVIEW

CARE AND EQUALITY by Mona Harrington

BOOK REVIEW

SAVING JUNE by Hannah Harrington
ROMANCE

BOOK REVIEW

COLUMBO by William Harrington
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: July 3, 1995

"Lots of action, gore, and sex in a fast-moving, well-crafted diversion that lacks the texture and tension of the author's legal thrillers."
The overriding question in Harrington's third Columbo saga (Columbo: The Helter Skelter Murders, 1994, etc.) is not who killed tawdry superstar Regina, drowned in her Beverly Hills swimming pool, but who is the old man living in her mansionthe one she slept with most nights and called Grandpa?
