I decided to revisit the Prey series by John Sandford and ordered the last 3 books in the series that are available in paperback from Amazon. I started reading them a long time ago, then stopped for some unknown reason, probably because my local bookstore quit carrying them. Now I need to find a synopsis of each book in the series to ascertain where I left off.

I would also like to start reading the reintroduced Blaine McCracken series by Jon Land. So many books, so little time.

Anything that has a high body count, a serial killer and insects chomping on corpses is all right in MY book!
Not a great book but it fulfills my needs. (Evil laugh inserted here)

(Only 1.99 on my Kindle)
Do you read Patricia Cornwell's Scarpetta novels? I can't remember any titles but I read a few before getting bored.

In case you didn't know (of course you did!) Amazon has a synopsis of all his books.

I've read most of her books and loved them because they satisfied my "needs"---- mystery, anthropology, forensics, some gore, and an intelligent woman as protagonist!

Her earlier ones were the best and I stopped reading when they got too repetitive.

That's exactly why I liked them and what I meant when I said I got bored with them. I started to spot the villain before the heroine did!

Which explains why we meet tonight, vit!

I returned my Diane Mott Davidson book...and made the mistake of looking on the "New Books" shelves. Oops. Came home with Joanne Fluke's latest, "Blackberry Pie Murder". Not gonna start it until a get a room or two cleaned, because I get nothing done once I start a book.

Subtitles are a plus for me! My Netflix just shows a movie (2007) with the name of Spiral. Is that the same? (I sorta doubt it)

Then I went to my library which has a huge collection of movies and TV programs and most have sub-titles/closed captioning.

Found Spiral there---- but just Season One, with four discs and English subtitles. I've reserved it (there will be a long wait) and am looking forward to watching it and thanks for recommending it.

Just finished "Wild"From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail, by Cheryl Strayed. Downloaded from Amazon to the Kindle Ap on my iPhone. Read it while we were away for a few days. Highly recommend. It's about a young woman "finding herself"while hiking the PCT.

huh, that's a shame, cave. our netflix here offers four seasons of 'spiral' streaming. i wonder if netflix's menu varies from region to region. let me know how you like the show once you get it from the library?
