31. Utah Blaine Louis L' Amour Interesting plot line and set of circumstances. The book opens with the lynching of a rancher by his foreman and a group of rapacious vigilantes. Blaine happens to be hidden close to the scene by chance, and is able to cut the rancher down and save his life. Utah then goes on to wage a one man war eliminating the perpetrators. He is successful, and wins the girl in the process. Really liked this one. Highly recommended, L'Amour's books...
30. The Man Called Noon Louis L'Amour A man is struck by a bullet to the head in a failed assassination attempt, and acquires amnesia. He spends the rest of the book figuring out who he is and foiling various and sundry plots. He finds the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow and gets the girl. I really enjoyed this one.
Did you see last night's game?
IIRC he's still averaging a double double. Everyone has an off game. Look at Cousins. TD had a lot to do with that. On another note, I hate it when LMA doesn't ORB his pick n pops. For 20 mil/yr he should get off his ass.
29. West of Dodge Louis L'Amour A collection of Western short stories. Published posthumously. Most of these were really short, and just as I started to get into a story, it ended. I wouldn't recommend it.
Try ABE books. 3.00 here shipped. I've fortunately been able to read them in succession.
FTFY
Daniel Silva and Stephen Hunter. W.E.B. Griffin's Badge of Honor series for cop stuff, but IMO it's inferior to Connelly's.I'll have to try Deaver.As you know, I lived in LA for 10 years and know just enough of the landmarks to whet my appetite.
28. Angel's Flight- Michael Connelly Bosh solves a case involving the slaying of a high profile civil rights attorney. Lots of other good stuff I don't want to give away. Much better than the last one I read.
27. Trunk Music -Michael Connelly Bosh finds a body in the trunk of a Rolls Royce in the Hollywood Hills. The decedent visited Las Vegas often, and ultimately this takes Harry there, splitting the investigation with Los Angeles. He must tiptoe around an FBI organized crime task force to ultimately solve the case. He also re-connects with his love interest from the first book, and marries her. I didn't enjoy this one as much as the others I've read so far- too contrived.
