Jackie Chan 8 Film Collection: Battle Creek Brawl: City Hunter: Crime Story: Magnificent Bodyguards: Police Story: Police Story 2: Dragon Fist: The Protector. starring Jackie Chan.

Tusk starring Michael Parks Justin Long.  Some kind of horror movie about a walrus man in Canada.


Emma by Alexander McCall Smith.  Modern telling of the old story.

Strangler Vine by M.J. Carter.  Historical thriller in 1837 India.  Bernard Cornwell says he liked it.

Inside the O'Briens by Lisa Genova. Genova? That's a familiar name.  I'm not sure why.

Leaving Berlin by Joseph Kanon. Spying and political intrigue in 1949 Berlin. I watched the film version of A Good German, it was a good flick.

The Harder They Come by T.C. Boyle. The plot description on the dust cover uses the word inamorata. Really? I'll admit to sometimes trying to find the perfect word. But, really? Inamorata?

Killer Gourmet by G.A. McKevett.  Mystery novel with food.

Hot Pursuit by Stuart Woods. Another one.

Compulsion by Allison Brennan. Reporter investigates accused killer.
