For me the last good books I read were Robert Crais' THE WATCHMAN, which really illuminated Pike for me, while at the same time being breakneck.
The other good book I read was an advanced copy of A WELCOME GRAVE by Michael Koryta, which had some very good character moments, if you've followed the series.
Next up is the book I expect to be awesome WHAT THE DEAD KNOW by Laura Lippman.
(You know, I can see how this sit is addicting, now that I'm embroiled in a live fantasy baseball draft. I keep popping on here.)
