I tried to do that once. But I got overwhelmed with choices for where to use a book. Now I have to actually map out which book I am using for which task from the start. I never come close to finishing a challenge and this method still allows me to read whatever books I want to read. Now I just now ahead of time what task I am claiming them for.

I have both of those on my shelf right now. I am probably going to go with Portrait, but I may change to The Winter Palace. I watched a biography on her a couple weeks ago and I have been fascinated ever since.

I read it, and while I definitely recommend this book to anyone, it is not set in hell and the devil is not a character.

21757 Here is a better description:
FBI special agent Dave Richman has spent his life protecting people; failure is not in his vocabulary. He'll figure out a way to protect Kate even if she is determined to make it difficult.
Kate O'Malley's specialty is hostage situations - defusing human time bombs before they go off. She will walk into the middle of a crisis if that's what is necessary to settle a situation. She's learned to let others see what she wants them to see. She's learned to depend on herself. Only herself. People die if she fails.
Kate is a target. Someone's been sending her black roses. Maybe the same person who just blew up an airplane...and blamed Kate. Then the investigation brings up the one name Kate hoped never to hear again...and she's faced with the shocking evidence that the bomber may be someone she knows. Now she has to decide if Dave - and the God he trusts so implicitly - is all he's supposed to be. And Dave is about to discover that loving a hostage negotiator is one thing, but keeping her safe is another matter entirely..


There is a huge investigation as to who is behind the plane bombing.
