had five wishes for years. how I know this My Son was 3 when the Hamster bit His finger and started crying. He remembers the Hamster to this day. at the time I was storing my books in a closet. the Hamster managed to make its way into the closet destrying a few books for bedding. the corner of Gay Hendricks book has evidence of the Hamster. for the past few months I have seen the book often, even picked it up off the floor to return to My library after Daughter was playing with the books. I plucked it again from My library just to read the summery. I ended up reading the first chapter. I feel I could have finished the book in less than two hours, I decided one chapter and the next I can take notes. His surmisation of His death bed regret is how I have focused My attention for over 15 years though not as concisely as Mr Hendrics. I have a strong feeling I will learn alot from this book.

I'm on the last chapter of The Good Samaritan. Brilliant idea for a book and very well written but relentlessly desolate. Couldn't stop reading though.

I am going to read the Mystery Man series by Colin Bateman, I read the first one years ago and never got round to reading the rest. It was very funny from what I remember, totally ridiculous.

presently reading a Robert Crais novel--a modern style of the classic LA detective genre.

Jane Harper - Force of Nature. Follow up to The Dry

Michael Robotham - The Secrets She Keeps. Very good writer

And

Joy Ellis - Crime on the Fens. Not read her before but she's had good reviews and there are a few books in the series.


Numbers one and two not as good as usual, sadly. Still not bad though.

Three - A decent start to a series.

Am now reading All the Light we Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. It's sad and hopeful and beautifully moving.

Tonight I will be starting Last Seen by Lucy Clarke.

The Angela Marsons book was called Evil Games and was very good.

I have just given up on a book and I dont do that very often. It was The Cedar Cage by Robert Greenwood. I just could NOT get in to it.

I have started on an Angela Marsons book. So far so good.
