Blood on the Tracks - Barbara Nickless

Blood on the Tracks is the first novel in the Sydney Rose Parnell Series. This book is available through kindleunlimited.
When Sydney Rose Parnell came back from the war she brought a lot of ghosts with her. She also brought her partner, a combat-trained Belgian Malinois named Clyde. Sydney took a job as a railroad cop. It was a family thing. Being a railroad cop isn't as simple as it sounds. Especially when skinheads are involved. Now Sydney is creating more ghosts while trying to save lives. Very highly recommended.

The Midnight Line is the 22nd Jack Reacher Novel. Read them all. I have.
Reacher runs across an old West Point class ring in a pawn shop. By the time he tracks down the owner he's started a ball rolling that will pull in everyone from local law enforcement, to the DEA, to the Pentagon. Reacher never fails to go all the way. Very highly recommended.

Beast Master - Shayne Silvers

Beast Master is the fifth novel in the Temple Chronicles series This book is available through kindleunlimited.
Nate Temple and his band of mixed monsters would seem to be at peace. Unfortunately, a wizard shows up and spoils the peace. Now Nate and company must fight to free the beasts controlled by an evil person who uses them for sport, blood sport.

I'm done. Silvers suffers from the same malady that hits lots of good authors. They keep trying to top themselves with more and more complexity. I read for enjoyment, not as a challenge to my organizational skills. If you like the Temple Chronicle series this is a must-read. It's likely my last read from Silvers.

Killers in the Family - Robert L. Snow

Killers in the Family is sub-titled Inside a Real Family of Criminals Bound by Blood. It's a true story of a family that defies understanding.
The Reese family was no good and everyone in the neighborhood knew it. Even the police knew it, but being no good isn't a crime. Unfortunately, thirteen-year-old Dawn Marie Stuard didn't know it. Dawn disappeared on March 16, 1986, and no one was brought to justice until 2011. Dawn's family knew who was responsible. The police knew who was responsible. But the wheels of justice turned very slow for Dawn. Thanks to a dedicated detective, who never forgot Dawn, justice was finally served. This book is a bit tedious at times. The court proceedings were hard to get through. The final result is rewarding though. Recommended.

Miramont's Ghost - Elizabeth Hall

Miramont's Ghost is mostly fiction with some real-life settings to make it even more tedious. This book is available through kindleunlimited.
I read the whole thing. I should have stopped when it turned into a historical non-fiction reminiscent of Les Misérables, but without any real historical significance. It was even set in France at first. Unfortunately, I kept reading in hopes of a happy ending. No such luck. Don't bother.
