|Don't I appear enthralled|
"Pablo strode into the room, and brushed the dust of the trail with his hat. Esmarelda's eyes met his and her spine tingled as she looked at him. She licked her lips as .... Wait. That's totally the wrong book.
My bad. The Book: Phantom, by Ted Bell. The Setting: Palo Alto California. "A trail snaked through the redwoods that led to an overlook where you could see the Pacific on a clear night. It wasn't clear..."
|Where are the damn redwoods.|
Now, on the other hand, There is Jack Reacher. These are great escapist novels, written by Lee Child. They are all fast reads. There is a whole mess of them. I truly don't want to spoil the pleasure, but I'll link to amazon here, and let you get started. I've seen them listed in chronological order, or in the order that they were published. I don't think it matters a lot.
To be fair, the later ones are a faded product, but just slightly, and there are 17 of them. And frankly, I enjoyed them a lot more than even the Clive Cussler books I enjoyed so much in my child hood. Basically, the guy is a brilliant investigator, who also happens to be 6'4 230, so on the rare occasion he can't sleuth it out, he beats the truth out of ya. And he drinks lots of black coffee. Classic.
It's a recommendation, not a review. The link to Amazon has a ton of reviews. I hope you enjoy it.
