A couple of years ago, luvs started a thread on this subject, but a lot of the members who replied in that thread are no longer around to discuss their answers.

So, let's start a new one!

I just finished the second book in a series by Chelsea Cain about a beautiful woman who is a serial killer and the cop who is obsessed with her.

Now reading Lisa Jackson's "You Don't Want to Know", which is about a woman whose little boy evidently disappeared from her house, and she believes she's either going crazy or her family wants her to believe that she is.

In the car, I'm listening to Stephen King's "11/22/63 about what might have happened if a man went back in time and killed Oswald, to prevent Kennedy's assassination. Twenty-five CD's (Steve tends to go on. And on). This is taking me awhile to get through, since I only work a mile from home.

You either need to get another job or retire....

Dave Barry "Insane City"

I have truly missed this man's humor ever since he quit writing his newspaper column.

The Winner, David Baldacci. It's not a new one, I'm re-reading it.

Harlan Coban is on my list and I'll have to check on Chelsea Cain.

Buzz, is that a new Dave Barry?

Both Connelly and Baldacci are my favorites! Read them all. See the movie Lincoln Lawyer one of Connelly books made it to big screen a few years ago.

Another good author of mysteries I follow is John Sandford.

I'm also waiting for that new Dave Barry.

I read Josh Wolf's It takes Balls or somethinglike that. It was funny, about being a single dad.

I also ready Jodi Picoult's new Holocaust book, The Storyteller. Liked it!

I stopped by the thrift store yesterday and picked up one of John Grisham's books that I somehow missed, The Appeal. I usually read all of his books. I hope I don't get a couple of chapters into it and discover that I've already read it. I've been known to do that :dizzy:.

Recently finished Dennis LeHane's "Any Given Day", mainly about a family of Boston Irish cops set in the early 1900's, when Babe Ruth was playing in our town.

My father thought it was "eh", but I loved it.

Now reading the third in a series of Chelsea Cain's "The Beauty Killer" books.

I'm hoping to finish up "Unintended Consequences" by John Ross. Not my usual type of reading as I prefer scifi, westerns etc but it is interesting to say the least but mostly political.

Not a book, but I've been reading up on the latest JonBenet Ramsey news.

"BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - A grand jury found enough evidence to indict the parents of JonBenet Ramsey for child abuse and accessory to first-degree murder in the 6-year-old's death, newly unsealed documents revealed Friday, nearly a decade after DNA evidence cleared the couple.

But the 1999 documents shed no light on who was responsible for the child beauty queen's death, and 14 years later, authorities are no closer to finding her killer.

The documents confirmed reports earlier this year that grand jurors had indeed recommended an indictment in the case, contrary to the long-held perception that the secret panel ended their work without deciding to charge anyone.

At the time, then-District Attorney Alex Hunter didn't mention an indictment, saying only that there wasn't enough evidence to warrant charges against the Ramseys, who had long maintained their innocence." http://www.dailymail.com/News/NationandWorld/201310260100

This just doesn't seem right to me. If the grand jury recommends an indictment, it seems that the DA should have to act on the recommendation. He should have to either convince the gj that there is not enough evidence and get them to change their ruling or step down and get another DA appointed who has the ... to do what the gj recommends.

Who is he just to decide by himself, against the wishes of the gj, what should be done :huh:. The whole things stinks to high heaven. Probably legal, but I still don't like it.

My thoughts have been all over the place on this case. At first I thought the killer was the son with the mom/dad covering for him. I'm pretty convinced now though that it was Mom, but lots of people are still leaning towards Dad being the guilty one.

But, Cooksie, weren't the Benet family members cleared by DNA evidence?

Fascinating case, still!

I was off work so I read the new Stephen King book "Doctor Sleep". The sequel to "The Shining" VERY good read. Thick book, I read it in 2 days, I just didn't want to put it down. I have missed a few King books. I want to read 11/22/63, as soon as I can get it I will.

Somehow, I missed a few of John Grisham's books. I have to read them!

The Confession, The LItigator

The Litigator is good, CM. I think you'll like it. I've re-read The Street Lawyer several times and am still entertained by it.

But, Cooksie, weren't the Benet family members cleared by DNA evidence?

Fascinating case, still!

Lee

Yes, but the crime scene was so badly botched (the dad moved the body, took tape off of her, put a blanket over her, etc) that the DNA evidence is kind of questionable.

I wish I was smart enough to understand "touch DNA" and all that other stuff, but I'm not :mrgreen: .

Just finisihed reading Dan Brown's latest - The Inferno. Excellent read and keeps you on the edge of your chair. Brown has a style that intrigues - you believe you have everything pretty well nailed down and know "who done it" only to find out later that nothing is as it seemed to be and the bad guys are actually good and the good guys are qute evil! The man is a master storyteller. DW and I are now into reading the entire 29 book series of "Cat Who" books by Lillian Jackson Braun. Fun reading - has anyone else ever read any or all of them? There is a companion cookbook of all the foods mentioned in the series - some of these recipes are wonderful and yummy, too. There is even a recipe for "Kabibbles" - a cat treat that our cats just love! Better than Pounce!

Ian :)

I've enjoyed Dan Brown's and John Grisham's books but have not read their latest. Will have to get those soon.
Currently I'm readying and old one, Lee Child's 2nd Jack Reacher novel. Fun read that moves at a fast pace. Funny to read books where they don't yet have cell phones to help things along. :yum:
