I just finished Kathy Reichs, latest, "Bones of the Lost." Good book. Quite often I rate good books four stars, but this one, in my mind, rates a fiver. A couple of the long-running series writers I've followed in the past have wrung the juice out of their characters, in my mind. But, I think Ms Reichs hit a new high with this one. I recommend it.
Non-fiction books I've read, and recommend:
"The Admirals," good summary of the histories of the better known five star admirals from WW II, plus a good bit I did not know about Admiral Leahy. Good book.
"A Short History of World War I" by Stokesbury. Harry Levins mentioned this book in a column of his. It presents a succinct roll-up of the factors leading to the war, and the book is worth getting just for those early chapters.
"A Higher Call," by Makos. Great fighter pilot/bomber pilot story. Great tale of chivalry surviving in the midst of world war like a lone poppy on an otherwise barren sun-baked ridge of Mohave desert brick-hard clay.
