Just got the book Out of Captivity.
I've heard good things and I will let you know what I think.
I've been a Robert B. Parker fan for over two decades. To my surprise I find that he is now writing Westerns. I picked up "Resolution" the other night at about 10 PM and put it down about 3 AM. Read the whole durn thang! I don't read real fast but I just couldn't put it down. Redefines the term "Page turner"
It's not a great story but it's good and Parkers way of telling a story is right up there like it always was. This story could easily be adapted to urban Boston and one of the Spenser books. He has one more western out called "Gunmans Rhapsody" and I'm on the look out for it now.
Bottom line, If you are a Parker fan you will like "Resolution"
About to finish World War Z by Max Brooks, Very entertaining.
"Blood Meridian" by Cormac McCarthy
Just finished off The Sword of Change trilogy by Patricia Bray. Now reading a book of a Russian author whose name won't ring a bell to anyone outside Russia (no, not Tolstoyevsky).
Mekong First Light by Joseph Callaway Jr.
A very personal story about the author. Interesting that it is written 35 years later, but for most that were there I can understand why it would take this long to write about it.

This was the #1 book in sales of anykind last week. Considering it is classified as a political title, that should tell you something!
Mafiya by Charlie Stella. A great crime novel set in NYC with Russian mobsters trying to kill a gal in an attempt to hide a snuff film of their idiotic members made. Good writing and nasty bad-guys.
2 Artie Lange's Too Fat to Fish, and Dante's The Divine Comedy
