Reading right now:
I am stuck with a wealth of books since three holds from my library came in on the same day. I’m already reading “Silken Prey” by John Sandford. This is book 23 in the Lucas Davenport series in which Davenport becomes involved in a web of political intrigue and murder. Tons of interesting things go on in this novel, but I think the story could have been tightened up a bit to keep it from dragging--overall still worth reading.
“Choke Point” by Ridley Pearson and “Bad Monkey” by Carl Hiaasen are the other two books which are now waiting for me to get started on them. “Bad Monkey” sounds both funny and complicated and involves a policeman and murder. Pearson’s “Choke Point” revolves around an attempt by a private security firm called Rutherford Risk to destroy an Amsterdam-based sweatshop that enslaves young girls.
On hold right now:
“Joyland” by Stephen King is a mystery about a young man named Devon Jones who gets a job at Joyland, an amusement park in North Carolina, and becomes involved in the murder of a woman in the Funhouse. “Joyland” is a mystery novel, love story, and coming-of-age story with a ghostly side. It sounds like great summer reading fun.
If you haven’t seen the “Jack Reacher” movie yet, you might enjoy it on DVD. It was actually worth watching—full of action. Book 18 of the Jack Reacher mystery series is coming out Sept., 2013 and is called “Never Go Back” by Lee Child.
