Current Book

Currently reading "Five Years to Freedom" by James N Rowe.

About his ordeal as a POW in Vietnam.
He was captured in 1963.

Quite interesting.

My neighbor brought over a couple of Kathy Reichs books, Bare Bones and Death Du Jour. I just had to take a break from Harry Potter and am 2/3 through Bare Bones.

Shopping was yesterday and I picked up two books. Tami Hoag's new book Deeper Than Dead (love her books), and Andy McDermott's The Pyramid of Doom.

Zhizara ... I also enjoy Tami Hoag's books ... I've read a few over the summer and just yesterday stopped off at the library and picked up The Alibi Man, and Kill the Messenger.

You'll love it. It's a great read. Twisty genius. The second book (it's a trilogy) is The Girl Who Played With Fire. Just as good. I'm haunting the bookshelves for the 3rd book, but it doesn't seem to be out yet. I'm going to pounce on that one the instant I see it.

I figured I'd get a response to the mention of Tami Hoag. She is always an above average read. This new one is nice and thick!

I'm all caught up on the Kathy Reichs books, Love them. Have never read Tami Hoag or Andy McDermott.

"The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest" is out in hardcover, I'm not seeing a publication date for the paperback. Probably next spring.

I'm on the second book of Kat Richardson's Greywalker series. After that is the Darksword trilogy by Weis and Hickman, I just got them from Amazon.

I don't know about Andy McDermott yet, but do yourself a big favor and find yourself a Tami Hoag book, any one. Kathy Reichs is a good read, but Tami is awesome in comparison. Edge of the seat, page turner. Always.
