Edna Buchanan's Pulse was a terrific mystery! I really enjoy reading Pulse! Had me reading well into the wee hours of the night! Great book! :-D

I just located a copy of "Zero at the Bone" by Mary Willis Walker. First printing of the first edition. It is selling for $900.00. Needless to say, I won't be buying it. Sue Henry's first book "Murder on the Iditirod" was great and tried to buy it. It's up to about $200-$250.00.

Just started L.R. Wright's new book, "Acts of Murder". Seems to be another great psychological thriller. Wright's writing is mesmerizing.

Read Mary Willis Walker's new one - "All the Dead Lie Down". A couple of wonderful street people characters. When they make a movie, Kathy Bates needs to be in it. Read the book and see which role you think she should play.

Has anyone read "The Genesis Code" by John Case? At first I wasn't sure I'd like it, but really ended up enjoying it. I really hadn't heard much about it. Supposedly same author coming out with "First Horseman" in August. Any comments?

The Oath by Frank E. Peretti is his best book yet. It's jam-packed with mystery, suspense and meaning. It's a thick book but anyone who reads it will fly through it! Read it or wonder.

For some more British mysteries, try Martha Grimes, Jonathan Gash and Dick Francis. Not every book is set in England, but the majority are.

I would love to chat with anyone who wants to discuss a good mystery. I need to catch up on the good ones. E-mail me at and lets talk. I love almost all types except historical mysteries.

I'm in the middle of Sandra Scoppettone's Gonna Take An Homicidal Journey. It's fifth in a series that features Lauren Laurano P.I. Has anyone else read her?

Janelle - 07:05pm Jul 8, 1998 PST(#150 of 1002)

Scoppettone's Gonna Take A Homicidal Journey was a terrific read! It was one of the best so far in the series! :-o)!

Does anyone have any info on Richard Starks books about the character Parker? I read one (I think the first one) in 1963, and have been looking for it to read again. His comeback book "Comeback" came out last year. I would love to find out how to get the rest of his works. My email is The .ll. are two elles.

I discovered a new writer! Echo Heron. She writes medical thrillers/mysteries. The name of the book is Pulse. It features a nurse named Adele Monsarrat. I've never read anything like this before! I enjoy Adele and her bestfriend Cynthia trying to solve the mystery. It's different from what I'm used to reading. I highly recommend reading Pulse. *Harry Levi, I finally have your book Chain Of Custody and I'll start on it right away!*

Maggie O'Neil - 04:41pm Jul 15, 1998 PST(#153 of 1002)

Thanks for the recommendation (Pulse). I'm going to the library soon, and am looking for a new medical thriller to read. Have you read any Stanley (I think) Pottinger? He wrote The Fourth Procedure in 1995. I've never run into anyone who's heard of him. It was teriffic!

Janelle - 06:48pm Jul 17, 1998 PST(#154 of 1002)

Yes, Maggie I did read The 4th Procedure! It was excellent! I hope that you'll like Pulse.
