  • The Long Island setting of Kenneth Wishnia s environmental thriller seems to lie just north of Mordor Usually, such an evil brew of despairing urban grunge and insatiable corporate greed would make me run for the cozy embrace of Hannibal Lector But Filomena Buscarsela kept me riveted She burns off the page and lights up the world, even with mortal darkness shadowing her own life Fil is an amazing, an indomitable heroine Her vibrant voice dominates the novel, a wise cracking fury bent on revenge [...]

  • I have to take Wishnia slowly as the fast paced first person narrative starts to give me a headache after a while Which is a compliment rather than a complaint as it means I really get inside Filomena s head This is the third in the series and she s battling the same foe as in the first two books The continuity of story through the series so far is good but I hope that this book concludes it for once and for all And it looks like we might have seen the last of that storyline Nice to have it tied [...]
