The books I read in March, 1999:
Memoirs of a Geisha - Arthur Golden
Strange Brew - Kathy Hogan Trocheck
The Cobra Event - Richard Preston
The Eleventh Plague - John Marr, John Baldwin
Name Withheld - J.A. Jance
Pest Control - Bill Fitzhugh (funny, funny, funny - my opinion)
Curses - Aaron Elkins
Murder at the Feast of Rejoicing - Lynda S. Robinson
Stone Angel - Carol O'Connell
Murder, mayhem, comedy, psychological drama, ancient Egypt, medical thriller/mysteries, and the intriguing life of a geisha. What a mix!
I don't know why I didn't think to provide links to the books I listed in my previous posts, here and here, but you might be curious enough to check them out. The links are to Amazon.com, but your local library should have, or be able to obtain, a copy of any book in which you might have an interest.
Tomorrow is also a day.*
* A short, closing sentence I picked up from reading about Luis Mendoza, Detective Lieutenant, Central Homicide, Los Angeles Police Department, a fictional character in the (now sometimes politically-incorrect) police procedural novels by Dell Shannon (Elizabeth Linington.) There are, I believe, 37 books in the series, published from 1960 - 1986; I've read them all. Lt. Mendoza didn't have a lab full of CSI-type folks analyzing minute traces of DNA in things left at the crime scene; forensic investigation was limited to fingerprints, ballistics, and blood-type analysis. Lt. Mendoza, like Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot, used his "little gray cells" to bring criminals to justice.
