In The Guardian, Bill Eidson has crafted a thriller that shows the chilling consequences of random violence . I took this book with me on vacation, and was dismayed because I couldn't make it last the week.

In The Guardian, Bill Eidson has crafted a thriller that shows the chilling consequences of random violence hitting home in a quiet suburb. Set in the Boston area. But I had to keep reading; Eidson kept the prose moving and the surprises coming, and because certain events warned me that this was not some stock happily-ever-after Crime Light, I was driven to see how it turned out. This book is intelligently written, hard to second-guess. The violence, both psychological and physical, is scarily realistic, and the characters are well drawn.

It is left to Ross Stearns, Janine’s uncle and guardian, to rescue Janine and end the nightmare of senseless violence. The Guardian is an experience of shocking power that takes off like a rocket from the very first chapter. Thriller & Crime Fiction Psychological. One fee. Stacks of books. Read whenever, wherever. Your phone is always with you, so your books are too – even when you’re offline.

After books about individual decades came books about individual years. Now we get the book about a single season. Once Lindbergh had crossed the Atlantic, Bryson tells us, America needed another "sublimely pointless distraction". Bill Bryson's One Summer is the story of just four months – June to September 1927 – in the life of America. Four crucial months, needless to say – four months in which, Bryson contends, his homeland came to dominate the world in everything from banking to baseball and talkies to telly. Enter Shipwreck Kelly, a Manhattan sailor who climbed to the top of a 50ft flagpole on the roof of Newark's St Francis hotel an. at ther. nd sat there.

Support The Guardian. The book is filled with eccentric, flamboyant characters and memorable stories: Lindbergh's parents never embraced, instead shaking hands when they said goodnight. A close associate of President Herbert Hoover's said that in 30 years of working with him he never once heard Hoover laugh; his predecessor, Calvin Coolidge, worked an average of four hours a day, and napped more than any other US president.

She cried because she felt like it; she cried because she had to trick Nat. Janine didn’t put it into words for herself, exactly adn’t been before. She couldn’t wait for her Uncle Ross. She couldn’t wait for her mother. Maybe they wanted to, but they hadn’t come for her. So it came down to the same thing. Janine wished she were strong enough to beat Nat up. She thought about Joey Todd at school, the biggest kid she knew. He was her age, but fatter

An ex-con's pen pals help him free his young niece from her kidnappers in a gritty beat-the-clock third thriller from Eidson (Dangerous Waters, 1991, et. In a slam-bang opening, a man/woman team of masked bandits gun down the owner of a convenience store outside Boston and, seemingly on the spur of the moment, take a nine-year-old girl with them when they flee. Desperate to recover their daughter Janine, Greg and Beth Stearns heed the warning of her abductors not to involve the police.

In The Guardian, Bill Eidson has crafted a thriller that shows the chilling consequences of random violence hitting home in a quiet suburb. Set in the Boston area, this book takes off like a rocket in the first chapter.Eleven-year-old Janine Stearns and her parents stop into a convenience store to buy ice cream. Moments later a masked gunman walks in, robs the store, shoots the clerk, and, seeing her father's BMW, kidnaps Janine. What begins as a coincidence coalesces into a whole world of dark interconnections and horrifying possibilities. Nothing is as it appears. It is left to Ross Sterns, Janine's uncle and guardian, to rescue Janine and end the nightmare of senseless violence.

Eidson deserves a nice, plump best-seller to help raise this one back from the out-of-print graveyard.

This is the first book I have read by Bill Eidson and I enjoyed it immensely. Once started, it was difficult to put down. The action is fast and the characters are interesting and believable. I look forward to reading Bill's other novels.
