A birth certificate shows you were born. A death certificate shows you have died. A photo album shows you have lived.

Been reading a lot of Tess Gerritsen lately, read the Surgeon, and then jumped a couple of books, had to go back to the Apprentice and the Sinner to find out how Jane Rizolli met her hubby.

Just finished The Mephisto Club, but highly recommend "Vanish" by the same author... this one was truly a page turner for me.

Also been reading Mark Billingham. Enjoyed his writing very much. Very gritty and I don't know whether he researched"Lifeless" by doing what the character does in the book but it reads like he did... alot.

Also been reading (sorry got the reading bug at the moment)

Peter Robinson. He writes about a character called Inspector Banks, english based, living and working in Yorkshire. I bought a couple of his books and they sat for an age on the pile on the bed side table, but then I started and so far read about 7 or eight in less than a couple of months. Thinking about it, must remember to write a list for when I go to the second hand book stalls. :o)

Also read some Jeremy Clarkson books and "As you do" by Richard Hammond of TopGear fame, it tells the story among other things, of the TopGear travels in Africa. A nice read. Enjoyed it.

As I said, just finished Mephisto Club... and have The Bone Garden and another Peter Robinson to choose from.... decisions, decisions.... :O)

Hello all,

Just finished 'You've Been Warned' by Patterson. Could not put it down. I've been on a J.P. kick since reading 'The Quickie' (another great page-turner). Hope the suggestions help & you enjoy the books as much as i did!

Just finished reading "Past Reason Hated" By Peter Robinson.

Peter Robinson grew up in Yorkshire, but now lives in Canada. He is well known for his Inspector Banks series and these have recently been turned into a television series in the UK.

I have just finished Karen Rose, Have you Seen Her, Tess Gerritsen is really good but she doesnt write fast enough for me, James Patterson is also very Good Just bought his new one Kill Alex Cross, R.D Wingfield is always good for a quick Read he writes about Inspector Frost. I have so many favourite Mystery/Murder Authors

I love Patterson. Thanks for the tip, I didn't know he had a new one out. Is Karen Rose by Gerritsen?

I am reading a brand new author right now -Donald Thompson Charlie's Cruise. I'm really enjoying it so far and will be doing a book review on it shortly to say more about it.


Sophia Hsu - 09:06am Feb 10, 2012 PST(#993 of 1002)

Another good book to read is called "Destiny."

Here's the beginning summary of it "Gabriella is a witch. The problem is, she doesn't remember. She repressed the memories of her powers years ago when her mother was murdered. Now, the warlock who was responsible for her mother's death has set his sights on Gabriella...."

There's actually a contest that's giving it out right now too! Free signups! http://thecelebritycafe.com/contests/destin y-prize-pack
