Books, Music, Tom Piccirilli


Every Shallow Cut by Tom Piccirilli. This novel has received very good reviews. I know because Piccirilli always links to them. I think the story has something to do with a road trip and murder. Since this is a Piccirilli book I almost guarantee a muscle car in the story.

Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter by Tom Franklin. This won a Big Time Novel Award. Two guys grow up as friends until one is suspected in a girl's disappearance. Twenty years later the same guy is suspected in another disappearance and the other guy is a cop.

With A Little Luck by Caprice Crane. The cover says: Teenage romance. The back says: Adult romance in Los Angeles radio station.

Ellis Island by Kate Kerrigan. Irish woman travels to New York in 1920s to make money for injured husband at home. Will she return to Ireland or stay in the U.S.?

Set the Night on Fire by Libby Fischer Hellmann. Hellmann's books check out here. This one came out last December. Don't tell anyone I missed the pub date. Hellmann Fact: She's a nice lady and does not look like her vertically smooshed author photo.

Spiral by Paul McLuen. Thriller with nanorobots, scientists, and a lousy cover.

Only Mine by Susan Mallery. Paperback contemporary romance.

Angela Sloan by James Whorton, Jr. 14-year-old girl's CIA agent father disappears. She tries to find him in post-Watergate D.C. "A priceless coming-of-age story about stealing diner food and salvaging lost identities."

Music on CD

The Harrow and the Harvest by Gillian Welch. Old-time country music fans rejoice by wearing straw hats.
