  1. I love it that you have some Hillerman in there. And you've given me a welcome nudge to spotlight a Deighton on my blog. I love Bill Bryson's work, too. To me, it's quite readable and interesting; hope you'll enjoy.

    1. Margot, I haven't picked up a Hillerman for a few years now, but I have enjoyed the ones I've read. Bryson's books make a nice change from crime upon crime upon crime. I'll be looking out for your Deighton post - someone else I need to get back to!

  2. Glen told me this bucket had Pronzini and Bryson, so I hopped over to see.

    Lots of interesting books here. You need to read some from your tubs (for me) and less new stuff. I highly recommend Coroner's Lunch by Cotterill. I have several books by Scott Phillips and haven't read any of them. Also have The Bourne Identity, unread.

    1. I've enjoyed reading Scott Phillips in the past and I should read Cotterill. Agreed, I do need to read more from the tubs, but I find it hard to say no to a new book!

  3. A few of these are familiar, and you've reminded me I need to read more Deighton.

    1. Haven't you read the Hjortsberg yet? You had the film on your blog a while ago, with the lady from the Cosby Show - Lisa something?

    2. You're right, though it was the guest blogger, other Col(m). You did impress me saying it was one of the best books you'd ever read...

    3. OK, I just bought it, though don't know when I'lll get round to reading it... it's on Kindle, so at least I'm not in danger of burying it in a tub.

    4. Moira, if you love it I'll bask in reflected glory. If you hate it blame Colm!
      Not tempted to invest in some tubs yourself?

    5. That would be disaster, just encouraging me to buy more books...

    6. I'm sure I'll be emptying some one of these years......maybe

  4. You have got quite the collection. I've only read T. Jefferson Parker's Silent Joe which was excellent but haven't read much of anything else from him. And I've never read Tony Hillerman which I know I must rectify.

    1. Keishon - yes, over here lies madness! I haven't read Silent Joe yet - I think it won an Edgar, or was it one of his others? Hillerman's books aren't too long from memory, so what are you waiting for...ha!

      Delete
    2. You're right. Silent Joe did win the Edgar. The main protagonists face is scarred. Quite an excellent book.

    3. I'll make that one the first of his I try when I get back to him.

      Delete
  5. Col, like Moira, I'm going with Len Deighton, an author I haven't read since college. Most others in your latest tub are new to me but that's not surprising, is it?

    1. I must start either of his two series this year or next! Joseph Hone is of a similar ilk to Deighton, I think. He has a 3 or 4 books series from the 70's which is quite well-regarded. I think THE SIXTH DIRECTORATE is the second Peter Marlow book.
