    Just finished The Force by Don Winslow .it's about corrupt cops in NYPD .It's not as epic as his last book The Cartel but still a good read

    Conclave by Robert Harris. Manages to make a papal election just as gripping as all his other books.

    I don't read bad books. I read a bit, realise they're shit and take them back to the charity shop whence they came.

    'This Thing Of Darkness' by Garry Thompson.
    A cracking tale of the man who enabled Darwin.

    I reached the end of one of Conn Igulden's 'Emperor' series and didn't have anything to read while chowing down for lunch on the beach so I picked up 'The Bees' by Laline Paull as a stop-gap. I'm glad I did. An interesting twist on a fictional character.

    The new John Le Carre, "A Legacy of Spies".

    I went into Waterstones to buy it, and there had been a snafu at head office, all their copies had half price stickers when it should only have been 3 off. The staff were peeling all the stickers off as I got mine :)

    Just reread 'green river rising' by Tim Willocks. A gut wrenching chronicle of a riot in a Texas prison. It's a blast!
