Thnks for the invitation Jed, and for the tip on Mosquito Kingdom. I'll have to check that out.

Happy Holidays.

You know, I started both of those ... Power and the Glory about the dude in Mexico, right? And Heart of the Matter took place in, I'm trying to remember, South Africa? They didn't take off for me, but it's been several years and maybe I've matured. I'll have to try again. You've convinced me. I'll dig those two up.

Absolutely ...Orient Express and especially Brighton Rock are two of the best.
