Thanks for the heads up re Bulgaria!


message 7: by Matthew (new)

Matthew | 373 comments Hi Nancy. Glad I could help. Just a heads up on Bulgaria - Book #1 is actually only part of the story. It is continued in Books 2 & 3, which I haven't read.

Love your map, Matthew. You're moving right along.

Your best read so far?


message 16: by Matthew (new)

Matthew | 373 comments Thanks, Hayes. So far, I have enjoyed Paul Cleave's Cemetery Lake the best. Rocha's The Last Pope was good as well.

Will check them both out, thanks. I'm always looking for new titles!

message 20: by Wendy (new)

Wendy | 560 comments I really enjoyed Eisler's Rain Series. It is a Japan that is realistic, gritty and definitely not for tourists.


message 21: by Matthew (new)

Matthew | 373 comments Hi Wendy,

I was pleasantly surprised with Rain Fall. I lived in Japan on the southern island of Kyushu for a year and a half. Even though I never made it to Tokyo, I found each of the settings (the bars and clubs that barely held a handful of tables) similar to the small town where I lived. It brought back some fond memories.

I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series.


message 22: by Wendy (new)

Wendy | 560 comments I had to take a "break" from the series after the 3rd.
