New York, London, Paris


The Wrong Quarry by Max Allan Collins.  Another excellent entry in Collins's Quarry series featuring hired killer Quarry.  Quarry follows another assassin to discover the intended victim and sell Quarry's own lethal services to solve the victim's impending doom.

Last Train to Paris by Michele Zackheim.  Young woman in 1935 travels to New York City and gets journalist job.  Then takes work in Europe followed by love affair and terror and "heart-wrenching decision."


New York City Restaurants: 2014 by Micheline Guides.  Page 133 says, "Those who wax poetic on the virtues of the perfect roast chicken need look no farther."

Let's Go London Oxford and Cambridge by Beatrice Franklin and William Locke.  "The student travel guide."  I presume that means lots of coverage of bars and cheap hotels.  Page 123 says, "Lodging options in Cambridge are notoriously bad.  There are few affordable rooms near the town center, and overpriced, occasionally sketchy bed and breakfasts fill the area to the north and south of town."
