Whole Lot of Fiction


City of the Lost by Stephen Blackmoore.  "Urban fantasy"  Dead guy deals with dead things.  I used to read Blackmoore's blog about crime in Los Angeles.  I stopped reading most blogs because it was taking too much time.  Blackmoore likes Hi-Powers.

Gun Church by Reed Farrel Coleman.  Kip is a former big-time author and now a low rent teacher. He saves his class from bloodshed and is courted by a cult focused on handguns.  A gun cult?  Sounds like some internet websites I regularly read.

Crow's Landing by Brad Smith.  I read Smith's previous novel Red Means Run and it was pretty decent.  Virgil Cain is fishing in the Hudson River when his anchor pulls up a steel cylinder.  A crooked cop seizes the cylinder and Virgil's boat.  Virgil wants his boat back and gets into drug dealing trouble when investigating.

Dangerous Inheritance: a novel of Tudor rivals and the secret of the Tower by Alison Weir.  Weir?  Didn't she write something popular?  Maybe I'm thinking of a different Weir because I don't recognize anything off her title list.

Dirty Streets of Heaven by Tad Williams.  Some angel novel with angel named Bobby worrying about the end of the world when souls start disappearing.  I was just getting this confused with Johnny Angel.  I didn't know Shelley Fabares sang that.

Large Print

Shiver by Karen Robards.  Repo woman finds beaten guy in trunk of BMW.  Guy takes woman hostage.

Poseidon's Arrow by Clive Cussler and Dirk Cussler.  Another Cusssler cover covered in planes and flames.
