    • You’re only 40 books or so behind if you haven’t started the J.D. Robb In Death series. Just think about all the great reading you have to look forward to.

    • Nora does write differently as J.D. Robb though I’ve noticed lately that her J.D. ‘voice’ is starting to spill over into her other books.

    • The In Death is one of my all time favorite series. I’ve read them all including the novellas and burn through them as soon as they’re released.

    • By far the most interesting book I’ve read this year. I had no idea that it would be a love story, of sorts. Traumatized, mute boy becomes a safe cracking (box man, lock artist) teenager leading a life of crime to save the girl he’s in love with. And his life of crime is facilitated by his girlfriend’s father when the young man is fulfilling his community service sentence for breaking into future girlfriend’s father’s house as part of a prank. Michael’s is a crazy world tilted sideways on its axis. Though the ending wasn’t as satisfying as I’d hoped for I enjoyed this first foray into Mr. Hamilton’s writing.

    • DRM – she does have great covers though I didn’t finish To Serve a King. I think it had something to do with the monster cold I was suffering from at the time. I just couldn’t generate any interest in the story line.

  1. I read the first Kate Burkholder book and thought it was pretty good. I don’t read too many mysteries but I really got sucked into the story and couldn’t put it down. I’ll have to read the next installments.
