Over the river and through the woods....

to Grandfathers house we go.....well, not exactly. But Jeffery Deaver's Bodies Left Behind,takes you on a suspenseful adventure through the Wisconsin woods. Deaver's descriptive writing brings the reader deeper and deeper into the book and in this case, the woods. From plants and trees to thrills and chills  Bodies Left Behind will make you acutely aware of every tree, bush, flower, animal track and footprint on your next hike.

Speaking of flowers, in John Sandford's latest , Shock Wave, finds Virgil Flowers on the hunt again for a serial bomber. At first, I thought the subject matter was a bit of a stretch: a larger retailer swooping in to a small town in MN to steal any commerce away from small businesses with only terrorism standing in their way.  But the more I read, I'm finding I'm becoming more of a fan of Flowers than I originally thought.  Lucas Davenport, Sandford's Prey detective will be at it again in Stolen Prey, due out in May 2012.

Adding another James Patterson's Alex Cross books (Kill Alex Cross) to the mix of November literary travels, five more books have been added to the read list making it forty-four for the year.
