You can check out anytime you like...but you can never leave!

For those of you who love Sue Grafton: Have you checked out her homepage? It's pretty neat. If you're not familiar with her books this is a good site to visit. It gives you a bio on her character, Kinsey Milhone and a summary of all of her books thus far. You can read a chapter from "M" is for Malice and there's even a Kinsey Milhone trivia quiz. Interested? Go to

Any other fans of Kat Colorado out there? Karen Kijewski has created a good sleuth and her plotting is above average.

Hi, Kat Colorado deserves attention...after reading the first book with Kat, I went out and bought all that the bookstore had in stock... yes, I do enjoy a female in the role of investigator...but it's more than that...she's funny, she's good...

Anybody out there got a "thing" for all the detectives with cats? I think I've read them all...but somebody surprise me!!!

I just finished reading "The Genesis Code" by John Case and thought it was very very good. Mystery, thriller, suspense, medical and religion all rolled into one. For better details, check out the review at I'd love to hear from anyone who's a mystery fan. I love reading and am just starting my own "mystery collection".

Glenda Bixler -- have you checked out the books by authors "Rita Mae Brown & Sneaky Pie Brown"? Cute, mysteries. The authors cat and dog narrate the stories and give their own points of view on everything. Really entertaining.

Just read lawrence block new book The Burglar In The Library. Any one who like locked room mysteries or british cozies will like this book.

Deception On His Mind by Elizebeth George was an excellent book. For those of you who have not read anything by her I suggest reading them in order starting with A Great Deliverence. A Suitable Vengence is a presequel to A Great Deliverence but is probably her weakest novel to date. My favorites are A Great Deliverence, Missing Joseph, and Deception On His Mind. The new John Harvey Still Waters is another great book in the Resnick series. I like his descriptions of Nottingham England, the stories about his cats,jazz and gourmet sandwiches. The first three books have been made into televison movies over in England. I can't remember the actor's name who plays Resnick but the picture of him is not the Resnick in my mind. The actor looks to be to young for the part. The one review I read of the television series was not favorable. To much darkness and shadows and the jazz background music sometimes drowned the dialogue. I still wouldn't mind seeing them on PBS or A&E. Another good book I can recommend is Crescent City Kill by Julie Smith. PEACE.

You LIKED Missing Joseph? I thought it was one of her worst. I much prefered "For the sake of Elenia" but that might have something to do with the fact I go to university in Oxford and can relate to the Cambridge setting. Still each to their own, I suppose...

Just finished Dick Francis new (in pb)book. One of his best ever. I would tell you the name but already loaned it to Pa and just can't remember, how's that for flakey?

I just wanted to tell people about Laurie R. King. She has a couple of great series out now. I first started reading her a few months ago, when I saw her second book 'The Beekeeper's Apprentice'. I fell in love with her style and have been following her since.

She has two series characters: Mary Russell (interesting series with Sherlock Holmes) and Kate Martinelli (SF homicide detective). I recommend them to anyone that would like something tightly written and interesting. I think she won an Edgar for her first book 'Grave Talent'.
