I'm reading two interesting books:
PHOENIX,by Amos Aricha and Eli Landau. The book was written in 1979, has an assasin, conspirators who participate in THE CONTRACT. Very nicely written and riveting, and it helps that I remember some of the history of the time. If reading about intelligence agents and agencies is your thing, give this a try.

THE LIBRARY BOOK, by Susan Orlean is a beautifully written story about the Los Angeles Public Library fire of 1986. The author clearly loves books, libraries and reasearch and it shows in this wonderful book. It was recommended to me by a friend and I recommend it to all of you.

I keep a log of my reads so here goes.....I just finished The Guest Book by ?....google it....It was wonderful and rich, but not easy as it was one of those generational sagas that go back and forth.  It took me a while to keep it all straight, but what a great read.  I love WW11 and reallly enjoyed The Bakers Daughter, along with others of the era, The Tattooist of Auschwitz, We Must Be Brave, and the fabulous favorite, The Alice Network by Kate Quinn.  Beneath a Scarlet Sky was amazing as well and my favorite of 2018 was The Stars are Fire by Anita Shreve.   I could go on and on, but you will tire of reading this!!!

Hi Bob,  After reading your posting, I jumped over to Amazon and got your book.  As I do all my "pleasure" reading on my Kindle - and I do read a lot - I have Amazon's Kindle Unlimited Free reading - and luckily, your novel was one of the titles available. Smiley Happy

At the moment - I'm into Devil's Bargin by Robin James  (A legal,thriller, murder genre).  Yours will be a nice change of pace, I think.

If you wish - I can do a review after reading .  On Amazon and here or just one, or neither; whatever is your pleasure.

Please consider my novel, Adman Cowboy. If you liked viewing the television series Mad Men, you will enjoy reading Adman Cowboy which is also set in the advertising business. Go to admancowboy.com for details including a complete excerpt of the first chapter, story overview, author bio, reviews, and purchasing link to Amazon.com.

 

Thanks everyone. This project was the #1 item on my bucket list when I retired. Please give it a good look.
