Finished up The Black Box by Michael Connelly this week. This novel was published in 2012. It is the sixteenth book in the Harry Bosch series that Connelly first launched twenty years earlier in 1992.
My latest read was The Memory Police by Yōko Ogawa. This book was well-received. I was not as "positive" about this book as I expected to be.
Jumped back into murder mysteries after a history read with Longstone by LJ Ross. This is the tenth book of the DCI Ryan series. As usual with Ross, the plot was tight and fast-paced.
1960: LBJ vs. JFK vs. Nixon by David Pietrusza became available in Kindle Unlimited and thought I would give it a read. Not sure I gained much insight that I didn't already have.
Just finished The Drop by Michael Connelly. This is the fifteenth book in the Harry Bosch series. Another solid entry in the series.
I just finished The Family Business: How Ingram Transformed the World of Books by Keel Hunt. Have had the opportunity to work with Ingram on several client projects, but never really knew a lot of the history.
Finished up The Hermitage by LJ Ross. This is the ninth book in the DCI Ryan series. This one is set in both Northumberland and Florence, Italy.
Just finished "Eye of the Needle" by Ken Follett. Not sure why, but even though his books have been on my "to be read" list several times over the years, I never actually got into one till now.
I finished Book 8 in the DCI Ryan Mysteries series, Seven Bridges by LJ Ross, on the last day of March. That let me hit my goal of 9 books for the first three months of the year.
Just finished "9 Dragons" by Michael Connelly. This one has lots of momentum even for a Connelly story.
Just finished up Mayflower: A Story of Courage, Community, and War by Nathaniel Philbrick. This book explores the history of the Plymouth colony over a 71 year period from its charter in 1620 to its absorption into the larger Massachusetts Bay royal colony in 1691.
Wrapped up February with Book 7 in the DCI Ryan Mysteries series, Dark Skies by LJ Ross. Ross builds on her signature mix of a stunning setting, fast-paced plot, and engaging characters.
