Home is where the heartbreak
Wraps cold around my bones
~ Beth Orton

Thoroughly enjoyable.

Surprisingly, I found @ least five typos nearer the end; MOST unusual for a British press.

I read mostly abed.  This is a HEAVY tome of over 525 pages in small type – and worth every nanosecond of required manipulation.

ALSO: Gringo Nightmare and Against All Hope

I only read this books in spurts…I seemed to miss some WITHOUT it mattering.

I MAY give it another try.

My subconscious [DUH] has just made it clear at some/?-MANY of these ‘thrillers’ have a ‘romantic aspect’ to them.  It’s really starting to bug me.  If I WANTED to ‘Read  Romance,  Harlequin alone must have THOUSANDS of titles!

..or whatever they call it now…Behavioural…

This emerged from a box of otherwise METAL PARTS?!?!?  I’m fairly certain it had never been read before. I’ve read of all John Douglas – some more than once – too.

Where is the entry about “Them’.


smallRED WOW!

Again, I had no idea of the scope of her writing…this tome is disarmingly DARK! This one I’ll keep bedside for night-time perusal [short stories].

For some reason, both The Odessa File and the Cobra were 0n-&-off again readings.


  • ODESSA FILE, The *****
    I sure i’ve read this before (© 1972), started it, lost my place, but i enjoyed it so much I just went back to the beginning!

Bot for a buck w/ broken spine i made worse; hope to fix as last…

  • COBRA,The – On first reading the back-cover, I dismissed this book about cocaine (and worse, Crack) b/c, as a former nurse, I maintain that:
    the ‘War on Drugs’ will never be won b/c, @ the USER-level,
    this is a MEDICAL (addiction) problem, NOT a criminal one.
    Spend the bl**dy $$$ on re-hab clinics!

    But i was enjoying The Odessa File so much that I picked it up anyway.
    I found myself on pp 114 on February 26th, and, as above, went back to-the-beginning and quickly caught up.
    This is NOT a regular ‘war-on-drugs’ book: it assails the SOURCE in a very bold manner.  If the U.S./Euro  gov’ts actually had the guts the try this, it just might work!
