The draft of the third book is halfway finished, and I am loving it. Developing these characters is a joy, although I'm working hard to keep archaeologist Grace Madison alive at the moment. I hope to complete this draft this month—an ambitious schedule!— so that it can move to the first editor by May. Stay tuned!(less)

While this is still true, I'm also drawing inspiration from my readers. Their reviews and observations are enabling me to see new aspects of my characters, and while the third book continues with the Madison family and their friends, we're all branching out a little.(less)

The Vanishing Man by Charles Finch
Rate this book
Clear rating
Usually, prequels don't interest me. They tend to be contrived, and it's as if the author has run out of story, so s/he slips back to the beginning of the series.

The Vanishing Man, however, is an example of why I read Charles Finch. (I'm not fond of

Although this one starts a little slowly, it's vintage PD James. The characters are complex, the setting is marvelous, and there's plenty of evil to go around. This isn't my favorite book by James, and some of the plot twists are a little bit of a st ...more

Jane Harper's evocative descriptions of her native land make her work for me, and that's true of The Lost Man. While it wasn't exactly the genre I expected (thriller/suspense/mystery), she did a fine job of obscuring the trail of her antagonist to th ...more

Maybe I'm over clueless, entitled heroines. And immoral/amoral heroines who course along in life on the coattails and hard work of someone/everyone else. In either case, Paulien didn't do it for me.

I very much enjoyed the Art Forger, and was looking
