Ann (annrumsey) | 14620 comments Looks like a good month, Dan! Your Thorn book inspired me to update the James W Hall books I have read here on GR. Somehow I missed #2 and am up to date through #11 so have three books to go, perhaps I will get caught up in 2014. James W Hall is a writer I admire, his Holliday posts back in the day on the AOL Hardboiled book board were such FUN,
Julia Spencer Fleming is another who you can't go wrong reading, good ones ahead for you if you are reading in order.

Shomeret | 1380 comments I read The Purification Ceremony by Mark Sullivan before I began to keep book journals and I'd forgotten its title. Every so often I'd remember the plot and say "Now, what book was that?" It really was a wonderful book. I can now file the title in my memory.
