A post about recent purchases.
POLICE AT THE STATION AND THEY DON'T LOOK FRIENDLY - Adrian McKinty
My favorite series, and current working author. You should read all the Sean Duffy books. Probably should also read everything in the expanded Duffyverse... McKintyverse... as well.
BLIND TO SIN - Dave White
One of the lost Hungry Detective posts deals with the return of Dave White and Jackson Donne after an extended hiatus. I have a long list of authors I have had to pour one out for because of the once a decade cull of mid-list crime fiction authors. I still lament a handful of authors who disappeared in the mid 90's!
[Editor's Note: Sandra West Prowell anyone? She wrote only three books and they are all fantastic. WHEN WALLFLOWERS DIE is...well...I still think of it 25 years later.]
Anyway this is Mr. White's third book since his return and sixth overall.
CALL FOR THE DEAD - John Le Carre
First George Smiley book. On top of the fact that I am aiming to read down my to be read backlog I have also decided to take on all of the books in the Smiley Series of which there are eight soon to be nine books. I'll be honest and say that this book, and any other Smiley books, may have to wait a long time before I read them. Begs the question then why did I buy it in the first place? My response, to paraphrase Don Draper; 'Why deny yourself something you want?" Yikes...sounds awful when you type it out like that.....
Colgate Wisp Max Fresh - Colgate-Palmolive Group
I need to take better care of my teeth I bought 3 bags of this one-use tooth brush for the office. I love the books, but this is the most sensible of all the purchases. Annoyingly these are 'Add-On' items at Amazon meaning I have spend an amount of money in order to buy them. We all suffer through this life I guess...
Almost finished with THE DEVIL'S EDGE. So more at some point next week.
