BOOK REVIEW

TOM CLANCY UNDER FIRE by Grant Blackwood
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: June 16, 2015

"A complex international adventure that's less military hardware-centric than Clancy solo, but Blackwood uses 'notional,' which fans will know is homage to the maestro."
Clancy's gone, but Blackwood (Dead or Alive, 2010, etc.) continues his international action-adventure series by dispatching Jack Ryan Jr. into espionage's "wilderness of mirrors."Read full book review >

"A generation past Red October, the America-hating bad guys have added spyware, hacking, the dark web, and Bitcoins to those ubiquitous AK-47s."
Greaney is at the helm of the action-adventure enterprise built by the military maestro from Maryland (Tom Clancy Commander In Chief, 2016, etc.), this time with a devious yet believable story about radical terrorist attacks in America. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

TOM CLANCY POINT OF CONTACT by Mike Maden
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: June 13, 2017

"With typhoons; deadly Chinese and North Korean operatives wielding bats, knives, and guns; and a weaponized thumb drive, the action reaches Clancy levels early and stays there."
Scion of Clancy's family of all-American heroes, Jack Ryan Jr. usually goes armed as a special-ops warrior for The Campus, but this time he's equipped with a Zebra F-701 pen as Maden (Drone Threat, 2016, etc.) offers his first entry in the late master's oeuvre (Tom Clancy True Faith and Allegiance, 2016, etc.).

"Action-adventure addicts will get their fixes."

BOOK REVIEW

TOM CLANCY SUPPORT AND DEFEND by Mark Greaney
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: July 22, 2014

"It's by-the-numbers stuff, with the requisite villainy, continent-hopping, décolletage, neat tools and cliffhangers. But, of course, that's just what Clancy's fans read him for, and Greaney carries on that entertaining tradition seamlessly."
Another timely, techno-geeky thriller from the Tom Clancy franchise. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

TOM by Daniel Torres
by Daniel Torres, translated by Julie Simmons-Lynch, illustrated by Daniel Torres
ANIMALS
Released: March 1, 1996

"Then again, this book is supposed to be about art, so maybe the words don't matter. (Picture book. 3-8)"
Torres's first book is a big tribute to New York City and a little satire about the superficiality of the public's taste in art, wrapped in a story about a dinosaur. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

TOM by Tomie dePaola
by Tomie dePaola, illustrated by Tomie dePaola
CHILDREN'S
Released: Feb. 24, 1993

"A delightfully offbeat vignette of boyish mischief reinforcing the bond between generations; dePaola's handsomely designed illustrations have unusual warmth here, subtly expressing the characters' affection. (Picture book. 4-8)"
Another autobiographical story from dePaola, this time about his grandfather, who ingenuously explains that "We're named after each other, Tommy. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

Released: Nov. 1, 1993

"All in all: a fast-paced silent running that will please many of the author's fans—enough, perhaps, to allow a surfacing on the bestseller lists."
Up periscope! with America's favorite armchair technowarrior, who here, with the cooperation of the Navy, takes readers deeper than they've ever gone inside a nuclear submarine. Read full book review >
