Going to read Forgotten Man by Robert Crais once I finish Five Greatest Warriors by Matthew Reilly.
Anyone read any Crais? I've heard good things, but I've only just snaffled some books by him and Lehane. IJ I see you just read Moonlight Mile, I've got that arriving soon. Is it a good representation of Lehane's work?
I'm a big fan of Robert Crais. I've read all of his novels and enjoyed every one. If I may suggest, and if you have them, start with LA Requiem, then read the Last Detective and the Forgotten Man. Though they are self-contained stories and you lose nothing reading them out of order, these three do have a linked 'feel' to them. I've really enjoyed them all.
Fatal Destiny - a Grace deHaviland novel
I like Lehane's earlier books, before SHUTTER ISLAND. They're nice, little detective stories.
MYSTIC RIVER is very good. After SHUTTER ISLAND, he started taking himself VERY seriously.
I can't remember the name of his loooong and heavy book, not good. I was happy when I heard that MOONLIGHT MILE went back to his old characters. I didn't like MOONLIGHT MILE very much; I'm not sure why. The main character just wasn't as likable as he used to be. Or maybe I've changed!
Read the early ones; they're fine.
I just started "The Axeman's Jazz" by Julie Smith. She is a new author to me but my sister loved her books.
Have a good day everyone and happy reading.
Stuart, I can only manage a few pages at a time of this hectic book. I evened it out with Clive Cussler's Polar Shift (okay) and now Lynda La Plante's Cold Shoulder (very very impressive - first 50 pages strips the lead character of dignity and looks - fairy tale in reverse).
