Dominic Streatfeild - Cocaine, An Unauthorised Biography

Erica Spindler - Watch Me Die

Twenty Major - The Order Of The Phoenix Park

Anthony Neil Smith - All The Young Warriors

Austin S. Camacho - The Payback Assignment

Duane Swierczynski - Fun And Games

Linwood Barclay - The Accident

Martin Amis - The Pregnant Widow

Jo Nesbo - The Bat

Joe Clifford - Choice Cuts

Lawrence Block - The Sins Of The Father

Ed Lacy - Room To Swing

Marcus Sakey - At The City's Edge

Deon Meyer - Blood Safari

Chuck Palahniuk - Survivor

Well January certainly had quantity if nothing else - 15 books read.
A few disappointments in particular Sakey's At The City's Edge and Twenty Major's Phoenix Park.

My first taste of Jo Nesbo and a re-read of the first Scudder book from Lawrence Block; both above average.  As was Swierczynski, Spindler and Streatfeild.

A toss up for book of the month between Neil Smith and Deon Meyer, but I'll give Smith the vote because of the Somalian location. Both amazing reads though and highly recommended.

January book of the month - Anthony Neil Smith - All The Young Warriors


  1. Sounds like you had a productive month Colman.

  2. Sarah, yes a very productive month, I don't suppose that I can maintain this pace, but I'll try!
