Just finished reading Tishomingo Blues by Elmore Leonard. Am currently reading several books on politics, history, and management so there is now an opening for another novel. The contenders are:

  • The Power and the Glory by Graham Greene
  • China White by Peter Maas
  • The Secret Sharer by Joseph Conrad
  • The Last Chronicle of Barset by Anthony Trollope
  • The Black Widow by Daniel Silva
  • Volk's Game by Brent Ghelfi
  • Blood & Beauty: The Borgias by Sarah Dunant
  • The Thin Man by Dashiell Hammett
  • Dictator by Robert Harris
  • Terror by Dan Simmons
All of them look good. I read the Greene book many years ago.


[Update: My choice was The Secret Sharer.]

If that one doesn't work out, you can't go wrong with Daniel Silva. S

You're right. I've read all of Silva's series up to "The Black Widow" so am a bit behind.

He's extraordinary.
