Poetic Large Print

Large Print

Taken by Robert Crais. I once beat a mime while eating a lime. At the time it was sublime, until someone dropped a dime. Now, I do time with a fellow named Slime.

Believing the Lie by Elizabeth George. The dock extended into fog as I walked my dog. Where did I leave that corpse?

Catch Me by Lisa Gardner. Some say the artist is lazy. Maybe drugged or a little bit hazy? Recycling cover art is sometimes crazy.

Copper Beach by Jayne Ann Krentz. Psychic talents in the balance. Big, bad dude who can be rude. Will love bloom? Or lead to doom?

10 Novels Including A New One By Stephen Gallagher


Bedlam Detective by Stephen Gallagher. Becker is a turn-of-the-century employee of Bedlam Hospital whose job is to investigates wealthy clients to see if they are too insane to handle their affairs. Becker gets involved in a murder case.

Gallagher has done some neat books. I read an old one of his, Valley of Lights, that was quite fun.

I've Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella. Kinsella is English? I figured she was some Manhattan chick. Gallagher is also a Limey.

Restless in the Grave by Dana Stabenow. The latest Alaska tour courtesy of Stabenow and her detective, Kate Shugak.

The Wolf Gift by Anne Rice. Werewolves in Northern California. Maybe the guy just needs a haircut? Did you think of that?

Private Games by James Patterson and Mark Sullivan. Mr. Money Machine has a new co-writer.

Crimes by Moonlight edited by Charlaine Harris. A freebie from Bouchercon this past Fall.

I was invited to a librarian breakfast where Harris was the speaker. There were plenty of her fans there, and also fans of the television program. At one point she spoke about how, at times, there was something she did not like or agree with in the television program but she would then look at her last royalty check and feel better. I drank A LOT of coffee at that breakfast.

Catch Me by Lisa Gardner. I wish there were a way to show my extreme sarcasm when I think, "Oh, there is an original title."

Left for Dead by J.A. Jance. Didn't she just have a book? Well...maybe if last July is "just a while ago."

Mrs. God by Peter Straub. This horror novella has a weird history. Copyright is 1990 when it appeared in Houses Without Doors. A ghost story with a researcher staying at the family home that hosted literary greats.

Kill Shot by Vince Flynn. I bet someone gets killed.
