JUMPING IN THE DEEP



Having been in retirement for almost a year and a half, I am once again daring to delve into the deep.

I am going to reinstitute  sending out prompts to my former writing communities. (You guys have been missed more than you would ever think!) 

Beginning on Sunday, you will be able to get the posts to DAILY ADDICTIONS.

If you enjoy a daily writing treat, sign up on this blog- DAILY ADDICTIONS. (If you would like to play the DAILY-DOUBLE, FANDANGO’S ONE-WORD-CHALLENGES is also available.)

I am also beginning the FLASH FICTION FOR THE PRACTICAL PRACTITIONER again. You should be getting your “Welcome Back’ post today, and a new weekly writing prompt on Wednesday.

THE SENTENCE IS DEATH

ANTHONY HOROWITZ



A very enjoyable read.

Once you get started, you won’t want to put it down.

Private Investigator Daniel Hawthorne, and his sidekick (Anthony) are called upon to investigate the death of the extremely successful divorce attorney, Richard Bryce.

Mr. Bryce was found bludgeoned to death- the murder weapon, a 1982 Chateau Lafite worth £3,000.

Bryce had once said that every time he closed a case he created a new enemy, so there were many suspects from which Private Investigator Daniel Hawthorne could choose.

There were three clues to assist in the investigation, although all three might be red herrings:

  • Mr. Bryce was murdered with a bottle of wine, but Mr. Bryce did not drink.
  • There were a series of numerals painted on the wall I the room where Mr. Bryce was murdered.
  • “You shouldn’t be here. It’s too late . . . ” were the last recorded words on a phone call received apparently just before Mr. Bryce was murdered.

I don’t think I have read any other Anthony Horowitz’s books, but now I plan to do so!

STUART WOODS and PARNELL HALL



This novel is a spin-off of the Stone Barrington novel series.

Teddy Fay, a former FBI CIA (if I told you I’d have to kill you) government agent employee, receives an assignment that cannot be refused. His original mission, to find an infiltrator, turns into a far bigger plot than mere territorial espionage.

I found Teddy Fay an even more enjoyable character than Stone Barrington.

I think you would like it too!

A LITTLE OF THIS, A LITTLE OF THAT



My reading choices are very eclectic. …

I dabble in a little of this and a little of that.

  • I enjoy mysteries.
  • Many times a great who-done-it murder is right up my alley.
  • I am not into many vampire-themed stories.
  • But a good over-world novel can sometimes hit the spot.

I enjoy character-series books …

  • Detectives …
  • Psychos …
  • Even stories that follow families through several generations

My favorite authors:

  • James Patterson
  • Sue Grafton
  • John Grisham
  • P. D. James
  • Dean Koontz
  • Patricia Cornwell
  • Michael Connelly
  • J. A. Jance
  • Clive Cussler
  • Janet Evanovich
  • Lee Child
  • Lisa Scottoline

And I’m sure I missed one or two… or seventeen.
