Cruising for suggestions; I've run out of John Sandford and Jo Nesbo pulp cop stories...
Nelson DeMille's John Corey is a solid character; first seen in Plum Island.

Read the Day By Day Books a while back. Mindless, but entertaining.

Unfortunately, they got worse as he wrote more of them. There's a fourth one out, but I'm leery to pick it up after the really awful third one. The first two aren't bad though.

DeMille is great, especially if you are from Long Island.

Thanks for the tip, I'll give 'em a look!
I saw your girl looking at my beard. None of my business, though.

King, Clancy and Grisham are my go to authors for escaping the real world with a good book.

Interesting. I watched The Big Short and quite liked it. I'll look this one up.

Loved reading Peter Egan's columns. I remember one series when he put a Chevy V8 into a Jaguar. Funny stuff.

He's great. The books are fun even though I read most of the columns when they were published.

Betrayal, Tim Tigner


Sounds like a romance novel but thankfully it's a spy novel. Image

His books are great! The first novel of his that I read was "The Charm School" and I've been hooked ever since.
