    I really enjoyed that series. Probably my favorite series, though, at least in audio books, is the Aubrey-Maturin series by Patrick O'Brian, narrated by Simon Vance. The series has been recorded twice, and I've listened a bit to the other narrator, but didn't like him nearly as well. Vance seems to capture the nature of the individual characters amazingly well, and they are very well-drawn characters. I've run through the entire twenty-book series twice in order, and now I'm reading them randomly. There is a 21st book, but it's incomplete because the author died, and I haven't found the heart to take it on.

    When you finish The Late Show, could you post a quick review. Interested in the new series. Thanks

    Finished the Late Show.... Off to a slow start, but couldn't put it down as I got into it. I had pre-ordered it and forgot that it is a new series and worth the read,
    Just go Alex Lukeman's new book "Solomon's Gold" and will start that.
    Another Series that I finished is John Jordan Mystery Series by Michael Lister and just pre-ordered book 15. Michael Connelly gives an introduction and Harry Bosch appears in a few of them.

    I started "Almost Sisters" by Joshilyn Jackson the other day. She's becoming one of favorite authors.

    I couldn't finish "Eat, Pray, Love" but the "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" is absolutely wonderful. Stieg Larsson passed away in 2004, after completing the first three books. In 2015, a fourth book was released in the series written by David Lagercrantz, and another, "The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye" will be released next month.

    Have you read the "newer" book? I haven't yet. Been hemming and hawing. First 3 were so good, worried it won't live up to it.

    The Girl in the Spider's Web? Yes, and it's as good as Stieg Larsson's three novels. I'll have to reread it before the next one.

    I've read several books in the last few weeks, but nothing good enough to to be worth noting. September looks to be a better reading month with new books from- Craig Johnson, Diana Rowland, and Stephen and Owen King, among others. New ones from Dan Brown, Joe Hill, and a Harry Bosch from Micheal Connelly in October. :D
