    James Patterson & David Ellis: Mistress

    You may be thinking of the wheelchair bound detective, Lincoln Rhymes. That is the principle in a series by Jeffrey Deaver, not Patterson. I've read a few of the Rhymes novels. "The Burning Wire" will make your hair stand on end. Very good!! Deaver wrote the latest James Bond novel, "Carte...

    Dick Wolf

    Interesting timing. I'm about halfway through Wolf's second book, "Execution". "Intercept", the first book grabbed you by the shirt collar and wouldn't let go until right at the end. "Execution" is pretty action packed, also. I should finish it over the weekend. Do read "Intercept" first...

    James Patterson & David Ellis: Mistress

    Just read the new James Patterson/David Ellis release, "Mistress". Wow!!! I couldn't put it down. Once done, handed it to my daughter. She stayed up all night reading it. (She's married with 2 daughters and lives a mile or so from us.) This thing is chuck full of Presidential trivia and...

    James Patterson: Guilt

    The mind is one of the first things to go!! And, as is evidenced by my post, it's gone!!!:( All of a sudden, it hit me. It's Kellerman, not Patterson. By the time I got back to my 'puter, you had found my error. My apologies to Mr. Patterson!!! Sheesh! Take away my books, golf clubs...

    James Patterson: Guilt

    The latest in his 'Alex Deleware' series. Far fetched and seemed "forced". I'm beginning to believe some of these authors believe they have to get a book out in order to get the next advance from a publisher. Iris Johannsen was the same with her 'Bonnie' series. They became redundant and...

    Vince Flynn - Dead at 47!!

    Two elderly gentlemen in our community were killed in a traffic accident this past week. The driver was 90, his passenger 85. Both were retired businessmen, still played golf, and seemed to really enjoy life. What a way to go! They drove through a stop sign, directly into the path of a...

    John Sandford: Silken Prey

    Wow! Reading Sanford's latest in his "Prey" series. This is a political crime thriller. Democrat, Republican, Conservative, Liberal... Sanford handles today's volitile political clime well. Corruption, blackmail, political 'dirty tricks', murder... does any or all of this happen in the real...

    Robert Crais Elvis Cole series

    My wife and daughter hardly ever buy books for their e-readers. Local library is connected to a large data base of free books. They also found a website... I think it's Book Buddy, but not certain... that has thousands of free e-reader selections. The site drops a "new" book each week into my...

    Robert Crais Elvis Cole series

    Certainly, have no intention of "annoying" anyone. I do tell some folk that, at my age, I've earned the privilege of being annoyingly cranky!!! :>) Haven't had many posts on this board. Too busy reading!! :>) What little I have visited, it seems like the posters are good people who...

    Robert Crais Elvis Cole series

    Think I posted, earlier, about how great "Suspect" is. One of the most heart-wrenching reads I can remember. Few things bring tears to this old man's eye, but "Suspect" did. I knew one of our local librarians is a "dog person". I recommended the book to her and she indicated, later, she...

    Thomas Perry: The Boyfriend

    Just read Thomas Perry's new book, "The Boyfriend". Quick moving, crime/suspense book. I enjoy this type of read, but I prefer some semblence of proofing. The author had one of the characters driving a "Toyota Maxima". The Maxima is a Nissan product, not Toyota. Careless with tiny facts...

    Brent, did you sell the ST forum? I see someone posting as "Rex" has "Owner" in his avatar.

    Back in history to witness.... ... Lady Godiva's ride. ... As Seal Team 6 pulled the trigger to end Bin Laden's reign of terror. There are so many good times, and bad, that would have been great to see first-hand. I doubt none of us would want to give up the conveniences to which we have...

    ... his eye is on the sparrow....

    My wife and I were blessed with three great children. Growing up, the middle child pushed every button she could. During high school, we thought we had lost her to drugs and alcohol. We would never have bet she would graduate from high school. At age 26, this troubled young lady was the...

    Random Question..Keep posting

    Bird calls? Reminds me of an old story... I heard that they found hundreds of dead crows along a stretch of interstate in the Midwest. There was concern that they may have died from Avian Flu. They had a Bird Pathologist examine the remains of all the crows, & he confirmed the problem was...

    Quick question...

    Under the forum, Writers Room, is suggests posting stories. Yet, the posts are limited to 1,000 words. I discovered this fact, getting my hand slapped attempting to post a story containing approximately 1,500 words. Is there any means for posting our own writings or musings that exceed the...

    Robert Crais: Suspect

    We lost both of our dogs this year. One was 15, the other 16. They had been part of our family for a long time. Now, we are without dogs for the first time in 48 years of marriage. We have sworn... No more dogs! It's difficult to travel. Boarding is expensive. But, the "itch" is still...
