Crime Book Reviews Index

A complete archive of all the mystery, crime, and thrillers, plus adventure books and westerns, I’ve reviewed since early 2009, between both of my blogs, with links to each respective review. Organized by author and then by year. Apologies for the earlier reviews, where I had the asinine idea to cram three 3-paragraph reviews into each post. Some of the older reviews on Logic are getting updated and re-posted here.

To date, I have reviewed [129] mysteries and thrillers, [3] westerns, and [1] miscellanea.
