message 7: by Alanbooth (new)

Alanbooth Look for something completely different - The Life of Death by Lucy Booth. You'll have read nothing like it. Also an audio book


message 8: by Nancy (new)

Nancy I am looking forward to the next Gabriel Alon by Daniel Silva coming July 17th.


message 9: by Jane (new)

Jane Shibilski I heartily agree with Nancy. To me there is no equal to Daniel Silva and his spy series starring Gabriel Allon. Except for Robert Ludlum in the first few of his Bourne Identity series.


message 10: by Val (new)

Val New Bowditch "Almost MIdnight" by Paul Doiron comes out today 7/2 (#10 in series).


message 11: by Cherie (new)

Cherie I have two of these series on my TBR list, but have not read the first book YET. Just too many books and not enough time.


message 12: by Beth (new)

Beth I just discovered the Kate Burkholder (sp?) series by Linda Castillo. I'm listening to them -- on book 2 now. Pretty entertaining for my long commute!
