    Have we talked about books, yet? I have not read everything that has been discussed before my FBI search was completed and I was allowed to join you guys...
    What do ya'll like to read? I am going through my Jonathan Kellerman phase; I am on my 4th book by him.....his Alex Delaware series. In case you dont know, that series is about a psychologist who consults with the L.A.P.D. on custody cases, at first, and then starts consulting on murder cases. They are pretty good books; I dont know how good the L.E aspect of the books are, but the psychology aspect is good enough for me. The author is a child psychologist in real life and the terms he uses are accurate and some are actually things I studied in college. Everything is explained so the reader does not need a degree in Psychology or even intro to Psych. You guys probably see the stuff he writes about more than once in your lifetime as L.E.'s
    If I am not reading those books, I love true crime (surprised) and books I can use as education tools to keep me up to date with what I studied in college. I used to love Anne Rice, but after the Vampire Chronicles and the Mayfair Witches series, I found other interests.
    The classic are always my favorites, Old Man and the Sea and Wuthering Heights being my favorites. I would like to read them all again some day.

      I've started getting hooked on Alan Furst's stuff. "Spy novels" set in Europe between '33 - '45.

            No Bunny, it is a factual book about suppressed weapons, how they are made, and how people have used them to kill people. Also it tells of some of the political views on stuff like that.

              "The World at Night" and "Red Gold" which follow a Frenchman by the name of Casson as he tries to adopt to life under German occupation, and starts working for the British OSS.

                Oh, there were a couple of different books with that title; I did not want to just assume which one you were reading, so I picked the one I would probably read; silly rabbit.

                My brothers would probably like the one you are reading....is it any good?

                  I wouldn't say it was "good", it's just about what some guy says he knows about from some other people who did some stuff, and how they got these weapons and stuff like that. For all I know it's a crock, except the part about the mechanics of it.

                    Thanks! He has been reading some computer book called Linux Unpeeled [Wink] or something like that..he needs something more interesting that we can talk about. He reads stuff like that to keep him updated with stuff for work and he says it relaxes him, but I know he would enjoy something with a little more cops and robbers kind of action.

                      Dont waste your money on Tom Clancys Red Rabbit.
                      Andy McNabs books about an Ex SAS trooper are excellent and everything I have read by Tami Hoag has ben excellent. At the moment its "Diary of a battle, the personal journals of Colonel Charles Wainwright 1861-65" He was a Federal Artillery Officer and its very good. After that I have the Antartic Expedition of Shackleton and the History of HMS Hood to read. Each to his own!

                        I was wrong about my book. It's called "Quiet Killers" by J. David Truby.

                          Actually, that does sound interesting. I've been trying to get a copy of "Sink the Bismark!" by C.S. Forester for some time. Who is this book by?

                            If anyone hasn't tried them, definitely give Kinky Friedman's detective novels a go. They're a bit of an acquired taste and they're light on police procedural or action if you like that kind of thing, but I love 'em.
                            I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do these things to other people, and I require the same from them.
