Thanks, Larry. Looking at your list of books, you might like "Heresy" by S.J. Parris. It is placed in England at the time of Elizabeth and features Giordano Bruno, a real life person who out Galileoed Galileo by claiming not only was the sun the center of our system but that the sun was nothing special in that there were millions of civilizations in the stars. (Not in this book, but later in his life, Bruno was burned at the stake as a heretic.)
The story in this book is a mystery that Bruno solves and perhaps regrets that he hadn't.

Larry, thank you so much for the kind note on A Perfect Grave. I am glad you enjoyed it and the theme of redemption and trying to rise above the mistakes we make in life. Deeply appreciated, thanks again.

Hi Larry! The Tunnels is actually available now, and I'll be sending you an ARC of Boneyard next week when I get my shipment from MIRA...

Hi Larry,

Just finished Estleman's Black Powder, White Smoke, over the holidays. It just may be his best.

Cheers,

Same here, Larry.

I just ran across him last fall.

Hi Larry,

I just finished the Master Executioner and I agree with you---it was excellent, yet totally different from Estleman's other works. Try Black Powder, White Smoke when you get the chance.

Billy Gashade, Whiskey River, & Peeper are all excellent & all so very different. I'm going to try James Lee Burke next, haven't tried him on yet.

Hi Larry,

You're reading an Estleman I've haven't gotten to yet, The Master Executioner---I'm presently reading 'Little Black Dress'...the man writes on a fifty's manual typewriter...

Hi, Patti.
Yes, I've often wondered just how much evidence gets tainted by the ladies' hair in CSI Miami. But I still can't get over their equipment - it would put the CIA, DIA, NSA, MI6, and KGB all to shame. I guess I like the "Miami" version becuse it was the first of the franchise I watched (I'm alway late getting onboard with anything).

Elmore Leonard wrote the best Western stories I've read. Sure, L'Amour was more prolific, and I read him, but I much prefer Leonard's. Interestingly, I had read a number of his other works before I even knew he had "cut his tetth," so to speak, on Westerns.

Hi Larry -

Before I read Leonard, my husband did and he loved his westerns. He especially enjoyed Apache, and said it was one of the few Leonard movies that transferred over well to the big screen. It was filmed in Tucson, and interestingly enough, I used to work with Elmore's son Chris in Tucson at this place called The Sausage Deli. A hole in the wall, and the best sandwiches you could ever possibly imagine. Chris was/is a gourmet chef and opened a place in Tucson. I'll have to see if it is still in business. Cajun food with a twist, from what I remember. Very sweet guy, by the way.

Also, I was just telling someone else how I love CSI, but the Miami version bugs me, and tell me if you agree with this - doesn't it bother you that the women don't tie back their hair? I mean, when I worked in the deli, we HAD to tie it back so any falling strands did not affect the sandwiches. Imagine what those strands could do to evidence???

I'm kind of kidding... but kind of not. Vegas CSI - love that. The women wear lab coats and EVERYTHING!!!

Cheers!

Thanks for the heads-up on Estleman, Dennis. I've just been to Amazon to pick up a copy of *The Master Executioner,* and give him a try. Thanks.

Hi Larry,

Sorry for butting in here, Hi Tony...Hi Morgan. Hey RJ. If you like Elmore Leonard, try Loren D. Estleman on for size. In both westerns and hard-boiled crime. I happened upon him last fall, and I'm devourering his many offerings in both genres'--his Detroit Series are tops.

Hi Larry,
My husband's a fishing guy too, mostly on vacation. That's when I head out to the casino and slot machines.
