Six Fiction, One DVD, One AudioBook


P.S. I Love You starring Hilary Swank, Gerard Butler, Lisa Kudrow. Major chick movie. This is such an estrogen enfused flick I cannot even figure the plot out. I pity male movie reviewers who are forced to watch this tripe.


Sinner by Ted Dekker. "Sinner tells the story of a free lnad where people who worship as they please and say what they believe are suddenly silenced in the name of tolerance."

Terra Incognita by Ruth Downie. Roman doctor Gaius Petreius is worn out from his investigation of dead hookers in the previous novel Medicus. He takes a job with the Army to Britannia's northern borders and soon both he and his slave girl lover's lives are in danger again.

Red Knife by William Kent Krueger. An angry businessman blames a local Ojibwe gang of supplying the meth to his overdosed daughter. When a couple of the gang members are executed the the town "braces themselves for war." Cork O'Connor rushes to trya nd defuse tension. Never a fan of violence Cork knows that sometimes it is needed.

Shadow Walker by Michael Walters. Oh, yeah. This one. A mystery set in Mongolia. A Brit cop is sent to help investigate the murder of a British national on vacation in Mongolia. This had a very positive review for a unique setting and characters.

Wrath of a Mad God by Raymond Feist. Fantasy novel.

Large Print

Rough Justice by Jack Higgins. An American and Brit are in Kosovo investigating trouble The American shoots a Russian in the head when the Russkie tries to torch a mosque. Trouble ensues.


Nothing to Lose by Lee Child. We ended up getting two of these so rather than return it I dcided to keep it since Child is so popular.
