Alfred A. Like the best of Dickens, the novel is packed with incident and populated with vivid characters. At its heart is the unwavering belief that come what may, art can save us by lifting us above ourselves. Demonstrating the agile style and theatrical bravado of her much-admired Jackson Brodie mystery novels, Atkinson takes on nothing less than the evils of midth-century history and the nature of death as she moves back and forth in time, fitting together versions of a life story for a heroine who keeps dying, then being resurrected — and sent off in different, but entirely plausible, directions. Beneath the comedy, though, Saunders writes with profound empathy, and this impressive collection advances his abiding interest in questions of class, power and justice. Blinder criticizes both the Bush and Obama administrations, especially for letting Lehman Brothers fail, but he also praises them for taking steps to save the country from falling into a serious depression. Their response to the near disaster, Blinder says, was far better than the public realizes.
Henning Mankell makes it clear that his brilliant if chronically depressed Swedish detective, Kurt Wallander, has solved his last case. - By Joyce Carol Oates.

Even the most modest mystery novel has the dignity of its lineage. In the permanent war that all genre fiction wages for respect, it can claim partial but persuasive ownership even of Dickens, of Voltaire. But the thriller is new money. Where did it come from? The genre spread fast and hard — America had all that unmelting, isolate, stoic toughness, and, with the west at last wholly settled, nowhere to put it, fictionally. Eventually an Englishman came up with Jack Reacher. Now a non-trivial percentage of us is convinced that biology teachers should carry guns.
By Richard Montanari. One of them is named lead detective on two long-unsolved murders that seem to have inspired a new round of grotesque and seemingly random killings. By Dan Fesperman. On his first day on the job, a freshly minted police detective is assigned to fish a corpse out of the Hudson, the ninth floater that week and one of some a year. A more civilized sensibility survives in the old, frail man on the Lower East Side who charges a modest fee to write letters for illiterate clients frantic for news of their relatives back home in Eastern Europe. By Clare Mackintosh. The big twist in this psychological thriller is genuinely shocking, a tribute to the fair-and-square plotting of the first-time novelist.
