Leslie | 15985 comments I plan to read a lot of books - we'll see if I manage to actually do so!

Have His Carcase
On the Road

A House for Mr Biswas
Death Times Three
Fatal Pursuit

Cognac Conspiracies
Treasure Island

maybe a reread of Watery Grave and/or Smokescreen...

I am sure that I will come up with other ideas as time progresses!
