It's the time of the year for gift-giving, so give us your book suggestions please!
It’s becoming a tradition for me to put together an end-of-the-year list of books I recommend. This is not a best-of list. I’m not a fan of those since there’s no way people can read everything. So how can they declare some books the best? Not that I don’t admire the books that make those lists. I do. It’s simply that those big names and big successes get plenty of ink elsewhere, so I try to shine a light on excellent books and fine authors I enjoy instead. They may not be on the New York Times bestsellers list—yet—but these are some wonderful novels I’ve read in the past year. I highly recommend them.
In no particular order:
The Out-of-Town Lawyer, Robert Rotstein
This gem is set for publication in 2024. Rotstein writes beautifully, with great sensitivity and insight. His legal thrillers are top notch.
