INCOMING


  • Edgar Rice Burroughs, The Lad and the Lion.  Standalone adventure novel.  "In a remote European kingdom" -- is there any other kind in these novels? -- "plotters had moved toward the murder of the old king and his young heir, Michael.  but the lad escaped, and, through a series of the chilling, heart-stopping adventures only Edgar Rice Burroughs could have written, finds himself on the shores of Africa, his only friend and protector a giant feral cat."  I had a copy of this one years ago but it went walk-about, so I was happy to pick this one up.
  • Carolyn Haines, Revenant.  Mystery...or is it?  "When a decades-old mass grave near a notorious Biloxi nightclub is unearthed, reporter Carson Lynch is among the first on the scene.  The remains of five women lie within, each one buried with a bridal veil -- and without her ring finger.  Once an award-winning journalist, Carson knows her career is now hanging by a thread.  this story has pulled her out of a pit of alcohol and self-loathing, and with justice and redemption in mind she begins to investigate.  Days more two more bodies appear, begging the question -- is a copycat murderer terrorizing Biloxi, or has a serial killer awoken from a twenty-five-year slumber?"
  • Anne Hillerman, Rock with Wings.  A Joe Leaphorn/Jim Chee/Bernie Manuelito mystery, the second of author's continuation of her father's Navajo mysteries.  "Doing a good deed for a relative offers the perfect opportunity for Sergeant Jim Chee and his wife, Officer Bernie Manuelito, to get away from the daily grind of police work.  But two cases call them back from their vacation and separate them -- one near Shiprock, and the other at iconic Monument Valley.  Chee follows a series of seemingly random, cryptic clues that lead to a missing woman, a coldblooded thug, and a mysterious mound of dirt and rocks that could be a gravesite.  Bernie has her hands ful managing the fallout of a drug bust gone wrong, uncovering the origins of a fire in the middle of nowhere, and looking into an ambitious solar energy development with long-ranging consequences for Navajo land.  Under the guidance of retired Lieutenant Joe leaphorn, Bernie and Chee will navigate unexpected obstacles as they confront their greatest challenge yet."

  1. Jerry, I absolutely enjoyed Edgar Rice Burroughs' Pellucidar series mainly on account of his wonderful storytelling style.
