BOOK REVIEW

WRECKED by Tricia Fields
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: March 4, 2014

"The prize-winning Fields compellingly evokes the remote Texas border town but compromises the suspense with Josie's self-obsessed guilt and anxiety and the book's inconsistent pacing."
In Fields' (Scratchgravel Road, 2013, etc.) third novel featuring Josie Gray, the Texas police chief's latest case hits far too close to home. Read full book review >

MIDNIGHT CROSSING by Tricia Fields

Released: July 5, 2016

BOOK REVIEW

SCRATCHGRAVEL ROAD by Tricia Fields
Released: March 5, 2013

"As in Fields' Tony Hillerman Prize-winning debut (The Territory, 2011): carefully integrated red herrings, a tinge of romance and dead-on descriptions of West Texas weather—oppressive heat, weeklong downpours and earth-obliterating mudslides."
Welcome to West Texas, where a nuclear plant is being dismantled, a young lady takes a walk in the desert in 104-degree heat, and a corpse is dumped along the route usually favored by drug mules and coyotes. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

THE FAMILY REUNION by Tricia Tusa
CHILDREN'S
Released: Oct. 20, 1993

"Pure comedy—especially Tusa's wonderfully pointed cartoon caricatures of family types in full, overebullient swing. (Picture book. 5-9)"
Like a suburban version of The Relatives Came, the Beneadas throng in, bearing casseroles, drinks, towering cakes, a trumpet, an accordion, a violin; they turn up the lights and settle down to regale each other with stories, photograph people they almost remember, exchange confidences, and commune with themselves by meditating or exercising.
