I found the debut, A Land More Kind Than Home by Wiley Cash, to be a riveting beautifully written novel.  

I loved, loved loved The Art of Hearing Heartbeats by Jan-Phillipp Sendker.  It's a wonderful romantic novel that spans five generations.  It was very hard to put down.  

I've been on a James Sallis kick lately.  The two I read this month were great.  

I read The Friends of Eddie Coyle by Higgins, one of my favorite authors, Dennis Lehane has written a new forward.  This was a down and dirty novel about the underworld.  It doesn't try to glamorize being a crook.  It's very well written, but I understand that it's really Higgins only success.

I've read all of Alex Berenson's novels featuring John Wells.  They are exciting stories dealing with the CIA and our wars.  They're well written and I'm hoping for more.

  1. I'm prepping for a trip to Turkey, and have a stack of books set in the country on my short term TBR list. I am currently reading "Gardens of Water" by Alan Drew and loving it.
