My 5 Favorite Books of 2011
#5. The Devotion of Suspect X by Keigo Higashino
Cleverly conceived Japanese suspense novel that matches wits between two geniuses…one in math and one in physics.
#4. Other Kingdoms by Richard Matheson
Post-World War I jaded fantasy dealing with love, loyalty, and loss in an English village that touts humans vs. fairies. Unique narrative.
#3. The Ice Princess by Camilla Lackberg
All time best-selling author in Sweden has her first, in a series of seven mystery novels, translated into English. Gauntlet tossed at Stieg Larsson’s estate!
#2. 11/22/63 by Stephen King
Stephen King vs. The Time Machine. Travel back in time with reluctant hero, Jake Epping, to 1963 and attempt to stop the assassination of JFK. But at what price glory?
#1. The Hypnotist by Lars Kepler
Dark and engrossing psychological, murder mystery by a Swedish husband and wife writing team. Hypnotic.
