"...a spectacularly exciting
ride, by bicycle, creepy Rolls-Royce, and motorcycle....Vic McQueen, a
little girl with an otherworldly knack for finding lost things, is the
only child ever to have survived the clutches of serial kidnapper/killer. The good characters, none more than Vic herself, are flawed and
dysfunctional, though in a generally sympathetic way that makes them
more interesting and endearing....It's all in good fun, and why not?" ~Hank
Poison Flower by Thomas Mitchell
"I have followed the story of Perry's character Jane Whitefield since receiving a promotional copy of the first novel, Vanishing Act. Four more books in succession fulfilled a contract, and he went on to write other books, so now it's a treat when he decides he has something more to tell us about Jane's life. She's unlike any other thriller protagonist I've ever encountered..." ~Hank
The Burn Palace by Stephen Dobyns
"Saying too much about the plot would spoil the fun of the many twists and turns it takes before the satisfying conclusion, but it won't hurt to explain that the title is an irreverent nickname for the local crematorium." ~Hank
Joni: The Creative Odyssey of Joni Mitchell by Katherine Monk
"The anecdotal content revisited some stories I knew about Mitchell, reminded me of ones I'd forgotten, and revealed ones I hadn't heard...I'd recommend it both to fans of Mitchell's music and to people who casually want to know a little more [about her]." ~Hank
