2017 Book Reviews

The annual book list/review list:

83.  Far Gone by Laura Griffin
82.  The Crossing Places by Elly Griffiths
Very atmospheric and a lovely setting, but the mystery was weak.  The book winds its way from one incident to another until the protagonist notices the clue (the only one), which doesn't even connect to the murder, and then stumbles over the improbable truth by accident.

81.  Snake Skin by C.J. Lyons
80.  The Kill Shot by Nichole Christoff
79.  Caliban's War by James S.A. Corey
78.  Untraceable by Laura Griffin
77.  Drained by E.H. Reinhard
76.  The Four Legendary Kingdoms by Matthew Reilly
75.  Cold Wind by C.J. Box
74.  The First Shot by E. H. Reinhard
73.  Leviathan Wakes by James S. A. Corey
72.  Hide Your Eyes by Allison Gaylin
71.  Man of Wax by Robert Swartwood

68. Nowhere to Run by C.J. Box
67. Exposed by C.J. Carmichael
66. Forgotten by C.J. Carmichael

65.  The Human Blend by Alan Dean Foster
Lots of action instead of a plot.  It took half the book for the two main characters to meet.  And then it ended without resolving anything.  Very disappointing.

64.  Buried by C.J. Carmichael
63.  Below Zero by C.J. Box
62.  The Lost Girls by Allison Brennan

33.  Getting Things Done by David Allen

32.  Night Drive by Garnet Rogers
A more or less chronological series of reminiscences about Garnet's life on the road as a folk musician with his brother Stan Rogers in the 70s. It's a fascinating look at the folk scene for any fan, and in turns nostalgic, sad and hysterically funny.
