I love the Blaize Clement books! I have one more and I've been saving it for when I want a lift. I really am sorry that she passed and there won't be anymore. These are fun to read with enough suspense to make it interesting. I can feel the humidity of the setting and would love the birds, sunsets, tides and oh, my that wonderful breakfast she gets! I love bacon, too! He men are hunky and human. Great Entertainment!!! I appreciate your suggestions. I love the rizzoli and isles TV series and mean to read the books . I also love Michael Connelly, Robert Crais, PD James, Elizabeth George, Deborah Crombie, Harlan Coben,Lee Child, Sue Grafton, etc! I have a Daniel Silva and guess I need to move him up in my pile. Many keep telling me, he is great! I love the Joe Grey cat mysteries, Carole Nelson Douglas cat mysteries.......goes on and on. Thank you for my wonderful cat, Ino. She climbs, digs, and loves with enthusiasm. She purrs like a lioness, as well!
Hello Nicole, I read Shelfari has you as a member with Joel Rosenberg’s The Twelfth Imam and would like to recommend another Christian Thriller, "The Diaries of Pontius Pilate.” It draws upon the author’s military background and has great reviews. “Diaries” is not a vanity or self-pub book, but is published by Trestle Press, a small independent press outside of Philadelphia under its imprint, My Helping Hands Press, that gave a Christian novel a chance. Full disclosure - I wrote it and hope you’ll give it a chance - on Kindle, Paperback, Nook or Kobo.
Best wishes, Joe Lewis www.josephmaxlewis.com
My apologies for the delay in responding. I didn't realize I had a note. Anyway, I have not yet read anything by Barry Eisler (on my wish list in terms of planning to read). That said, I'd be interested to know what your favorite John Rain book is so I start with the best. Thx.
Thanks for the tip on Daniel Silva. I just finished reading another of his novels, The Secret Servant and really enjoyed it. It is great to find a good author. I see you are reading a John Connelly novel. I just started reading The Fifth Witness, which I think is his latest. I hope you are doing well and enjoying the book.
I thought the book was interesting mainly from the viewpoint that it supported my own feelings that torture of prisoners is wrong and counter productive. I felt that the book was a little long and could have been shortened without losing any of it's impact. Overall a good read but I liked "Kill or Capture" better. I will definitely look for How to Break a Terrorist - thanks for the recommendation.
Hi Nicole, sorry for the delay. I have been on out of town a lot and missed your note. I enjoyed The Company We Keep. I like getting a perspective from people who are actually working as agents after reading a lot of spy novels. This book is low key but interesting and doesn't go overboard with the drama. I think you would enjoy it. Thanks for the tip on Daniel Silva. I will definitely look him up on my next visit.
I have floor to ceiling bookcases in nearly every room of my house. They are shelved by genre/subject for the most part, though there are some deviations. There are at least 1000 boxed in my garage, mostly romantic suspense, some romance and it is my intention to go through them and trade most of them. I love Linda Howard, have read some Brockmann, but I only occasionally read romantic suspense now and no romance that are specifically categorized in that genre. I just got tired of the repetition, and the marginal writing of so many.
Jon Land: I am part way into the Israili/Palestinian series. I really liked the first and have bogged down on the second. So I'm putting that off. I've read all but the newest of the Strong, Texas Ranger series; but there are only a few of them. He generally writes a fast paced and well-charactered story. But he is not on my "deperately-waiting-the-newest" list.
Yes, the current political arena is just that...a circus! No consideration for the constituency or solidly solving any of our country's problems. Alas, I don't see any light on the horizon. In my opinion, every last one of them needs to be fired and we need to hire the CEO of Google to go in and set up a group that sets up goals, works together and listens to one another and the country. I have become exceedingly cynical over these last years.
I do trade books, and give away. But any hardback that I own I keep, classics, poetry, memoirs...and children's books. I am not just a reader, but a collector, first editions and specific authors. It is an amazing calling. It fills my senses and needs.
Happy reading. Anne
I should also comment that I should revise my dislike from deceptive politics to just hating politics, because I have come to the conclusion that deception is part of the definition of politics and that most of the politicians are deceptive and self serving regardless which side of the aisle they inhabit.
