A Western, A Pulp, Some Ghosts


In A Valley of Violence starring Ethan Hawke and John Travolta. Stranger comes to town. Stranger picks a fight. Violence and counter violence ensue.


Kiss the Devil Good Night by Jonathan Woods. Pulpy action goodness. Marital betrayal! Violent crime! Prison! Revenge!

The Girl Before by JP Delaney. You just know the publisher wanted something with "girl" in the title. The dust cover says JP Delaney is a pseudonym for a famous writer. One guess at the writer's identity is someone named Tony Strong. I never heard of him, which doesn't mean much.

Clownfish Blues by Tim Dorsey. The dust cover plot description says something about crazy people in Florida rigging the lottery.

Fatal by John Lescroart. Police detective has to recognize that her best friend may have killed the man she had an affair with.

Power Game by Christine Feehan. Physically enhanced commando teams up with genetically engineered spy for mission in Indonesia. Feehan's author photo is with a big fluffy looking dog. A BIG dog.

Audiobook on CD

Big LIttle Lies by Liane Moriarty. 16 hours on 13 CDs.  This is from 2014 and must be one of the sale books I bought to fill in the collection.

Birth of a Munich Accountant


The Birth of a Nation starring Nate Parker and Armie Hammer. Based on the slave rebellion led by Nat Turner.

The Accountant starring Ben Affleck and Anna Kendrick. Accountant self-trains to become super commando. I think.
