Never Call Retreat: Lee and Grant: The Final Victory
Newt Gingrich
0312342985
June 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From AudioFile
The conclusion of this Civil War alternative history series finds the Union struggling after losses in a battle to save Washington, D.C., in 1863. As Lincoln pins his hopes on Grant, the two generals, Lee and Grant, head for a deciding battle on the banks of Maryland's Monocacy Creek. Military plotting and strategy form the core of the novel; real-life figures on both sides are generally portrayed as noble but are rarely fleshed out in this abridgment. Boyd Gaines usually makes the story exciting, but the novel occasionally succumbs to the dry details of military maneuverings. Still, Civil War enthusiasts will be fascinated--and perhaps surprised by the authors' conclusion.

The Backwoods
Edward Lee
0843954132
Oct 2005
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
At the start of Lee's peculiar and uneasily convincing mix of sex and violence, 40-ish D.C. lawyer Patricia White temporarily leaves her successful practice and her loving husband to console her sister, Judy, after the grisly murder of Judy's brutish husband, Dwayne. Judy lives in Agan's Point, a boondocks Chesapeake Bay town where the sisters grew up. There Patricia relives unhappy memories of her rape years earlier by an unknown assailant and feels unexpected and intense sexual longings for a childhood friend who never left the Point. Eerie and insular squatters and an unscrupulous land developer anxious to eliminate the squatters contribute to the growing mayhem. Lee (City Infernal) throws in some overly convenient supernaturalism toward the end, but if you're still reading by that point, it's a fair bet you...

From Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. In bestseller Child's 10th novel to feature ex-army MP Jack Reacher (after 2005's One Shot), a sidewalk cafe encounter in New York City plunges Reacher into one of his most challenging—and thoroughly engrossing—adventures to date. Acting out of "reflex and professional curiosity" (and the promise of a generous fee), Reacher agrees to help sinister ex-army officer Edward Lane, whose posse of six Special Forces veterans are even more ominous than he, track down his kidnapped daughter and trophy wife. Since the kidnapping of wife number one five years earlier ended in her death, Lane cautions Reacher that he will not brook police interference ("You break your word, I'll put your eyes out"). From Lane's quarters in the West Side's venerable Dakota apartment building to the shady...

Book Description
WELCOME TO THE MEPHISTOPOLIS Hell is a city.It stretches, literally, without end–a labyrinth of smoke and waking nightmare. Just as endlessly, sewer grates belch flame from the sulphur fires that have raged beneath the streets for millennia. Clock towers spire in every district, by public law, but their faces have no hands; time is not measured here in seconds or hours but in atrocity and despair. In the center of this morass of stone and smoke and butchery and horror stands the 666-floor Mephisto Building, where Gargoyles prowl the wind-blown ledges and from whose highest garrets the innocent are hung from gibbets and left to rot for eons. The lone occupant of the very top floor looks down upon his dominion and smiles a smile that is brighter than a thousand suns. Here, yes, everyone is dead yet everyone...


Lost Triumph: Lee's Real Plan at Gettysburg - and why It Failed
Tom Carhart
0399152490
April 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From AudioFile
Using knowledge of Robert E. Lee's education--and copious speculation--the author likens Lee's plan at Gettysburg to one of Napoleon Bonaparte's victorious conflicts. Carhart includes the circumstances of the Civil War and short bios of the principal players. Michael Prichard relieves the tedium of the text with an upbeat and lively approach, without which the listener might perish of boredom. He sounds as though he understands the back-and-forth comparisons of the complicated troop movements of armies fighting decades apart. As always, Prichard pronounces every letter of every word and never makes a mistake in pronunciation. Oh, that all audiobook narrators could make a save like this.

From Publishers Weekly
In this sequel to (which reads like an inferior rewrite of) Lee's previous novel about a technologically driven hell, City Infernal (2001), goth chick Cassie Heydon is still an "Etheress" looking for her twin sister, a suicide. She's aided this time by an angel, Angelese, and by Walter, a dorky A student and "Etherean" who's goggle-eyed over a blonde now resident in Lucifer's capital city, Mephistopolis. Lucifer himself resides on the top floor of a 666-story skyscraper, plotting to take over the universe. He has a time-traveling device and a "Hex-Clone" of Jesus, whom he plans to bring back to that famous cave to nip Christianity in the bud. The puns are less frequent this time, too much of the action is set outside Lucifer's city and the story is hysterically scattershot. Still, there are laughs for the...

From School Library Journal
Grade 6 Up–A solid portrait of a complex man. The clearly written text describes Lee's birth into an aristocratic family and childhood spent in genteel poverty. Inspired by George Washington, he chose a military career, graduating from West Point. The Mexican War turned him into a hero and gave him insight into what leads to success in battle. Following postings as head of the U.S. Military Academy and on the frontier, he returned home to his Virginia plantation and eventually freed his slaves. As war approached, he declined to lead the Federal forces, instead accepting command of the Army of Virginia. Robertson conveys Lee's war tactics, tracing both his triumphs and failures, and his admirable character and dedication to the cause. Readers will gain a greater understanding not only of his life and...

Book Review
Author Jeff Shaara rounds out the Civil War trilogy started by his late father Michael Shaara, whose book The Killer Angels describes the Battle of Gettysburg. Just as Jeff Shaara's Gods and Generals covers action prior to Gettysburg, The Last Full Measure picks up with Confederate General Robert E. Lee's retreat from Pennsylvania and continues through the end of the war. Shaara focuses on the characters of Lee and Union commander Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain, both of whom play prominent roles in the earlier books. He also introduces a new one: Ulysses S. Grant, the Union general who would finally defeat the South--something no soldier before him could manage. The Last Full Measure is often exciting and poignant, and fans of The Killer Angels and Gods and Generals won't be disappointed. --This text refers to the...

From Publishers Weekly
Weird science intersects with apparent supernatural phenomena in the latest horror extravaganza from Lee (City Infernal). In the first story thread, an archeology dig in central Florida in 1995 uncovers possible proof of a demonic incarnation 10,000 years in the past. The second-and knottier-thread involves Clare Prentiss, an Air Force lieutenant dishonorably discharged when she makes the mistake of accusing a colonel's son of rape. Reduced to living on the street, Clare suddenly lucks into a cushy job managing security at Fort Alachua Park, a Florida wildlands preserve where the military sponsors a top-secret cancer research clinic. No sooner is she established than mysteries start piling up: Clare can't get a clear story on the disappearance of the previous security team; equipment the facility shouldn't need...
