I've heard great things about Tree of Smoke, Pat.
They are true...I bet you'll love it, a really great read!
Finished "The Abduction" last night. A pretty decent 2nd book by Mark Gimenez (I have to find his first "Color of Law" now).
It's about a ten tear old girl being kidnapped and her father, a new techno billionair and grandfather, an ex vietnam green beret, who have been estranged from one another searching for her.
It's has a few moments of convenience (what's the term..deus ex machina?) but this guy can certainly write.
Also read "Last Night at the Lobster" written by the dude that co-authored the book with Stephen King about the Boston Red Sox.
Critics liked it...I'll only say that's an hour and a half of my life I'll never get back (it's really a novella).
It might be that since I've worked in food most of my life it was just another day at work (with out pay) and just I could'nt wait to clock out.
On the other hand if you have ever worked or like to eat at Red Lobster it might just be up your cheddar biscuits
Starting "Heart Sick" by Chelsea Cain...has a hot lady serial killer...who doesn't just love those
