Pattern of Wounds by J. Mark Bertrand

Recommended by Mark Tubbs.

A fine literary mystery novel that delivers in every way, especially in the aspect of characterization.

The Fort by Bernard Cornwell

Recommended by Mark Tubbs.

A work of historical fiction valuable for its leadership lessons from a military campaign fraught with indecision and ineptitude.

Between Two Kingdoms by Joe Boyd

Not recommended by Mark Tubbs.

Better the second time through this fantastical novelette, but still nowhere near to being a work worthy of being called the heir of the Inklings.

Back on Murder by J. Mark Bertrand

Recommended by Mark Tubbs.

Superlative in every way: suspense, pacing, characterization, human interest, use of language, etc.

A Stand-Up Guy by Michael Snyder

Recommended by Mark Tubbs.

A page-turner of a character novel whose characters are not quite as engaging as in Snyder's previous novels.

Return to the Hundred Acre Wood by David Benedictus

Recommended by Mark Tubbs.

A new installment in the Winnie-the-Pooh Collection in every way equal to its venerable predecessors.

Burning Down 'The Shack' by James De Young

Recommended by Tim Challies.

A solid resource book which thoroughly refutes the faulty presuppositions of the bestelling novel.

Beguiled by Deeanne Gist, J. Mark Bertrand

Not recommended by Mark Tubbs.

A page-turner, granted, but unless you are a Christian Romance buff, you probably don't need to read this one.

In the First Circle by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

Recommended by Trevin Wax.

A good, long Russian novel of humor and pathos.

Flashforward by Robert J. Sawyer

Recommended by Leslie Wiggins.

An enjoyable Sci-Fi novel featuring a theory as the protagonist.
