    Actually that is on my reading list on Kindle.

    I just finsished The Bishop's Pawn by Steve Berry. If you have read his Cotton Malone books, you will know what you will get. Except this is his first adventure. Spoiler Alert-he survives. Finished in 2 days so must have been good.

    Mystic River is pretty good so far, it kept me on the treadmill longer than usual because I wasn't watching the clock, and that's saying something. :D

    I shall put The Bishop's Pawn in my Audible wish list, or should I start with the Cotton Malone books?

    Well it is kind of odd. Because it is the 12 or 13 book. But since it is his firs case you could start with it. There are lines like "well it was the first of many mistakes I was to make in my career"where it kind of refers to th eother books. But I would say it can be done first.

    The Templar Legacy is the actual first book in the series. And like most series the first 3-4 are the best.

    Charles Frazier released a new novel yesterday! He isn't prolific, but I love his novels. This one is set during the Civil War, the title is "Varina". I'll start it as soon as I finish this young adult urban fantasy, "City of Bones: The Mortal Instruments" it's not bad, and I'll probably continue the series.

    I really enjoy Sarah Addison Allen's books. I just finished her book "The Sugar Queen"-actually listened to the audiobook while mucking out our cattle barns. I think you would really like it. I'm going to see if our library has "The Peach Keeper". Take care.

    Crouch's Wayward Pines trilogy has been on my wish list for quite awhile, have you read them?

    This is my first book by Crouch. It probably won't be the last.

    Reading 'Catcher in the Rye' currently, Never read it before but it was mentioned a couple times in another book I had finished. Its written in the manner a 16 year old (the main character) talks/thinks. Its kind of like a train wreck, I just can't put it down. I'm probably one of few adults that has never had to read it in school.

    I do see why it was banned in the 50's. The language for today is very mild, but for 1950 it would have been shocking.

    Finished recently The Master of the Day of Judgement by Leo Perutz. Great book and my favorite in the genre of Detective fiction after the stories about Sherlock.
