|Comment||Hello Bruce, Unfortunately I, very reluctantly, reached the same conclusion. I was hoping that I had, perhaps, misunderstood the ending. I really hate when one of my favorite characters has to die. I am reading all the Jury novels in order, as I do with all the other series that I read. I am a big fan of Anne Perry, and have read all the Monk and Pitt series. I have just recently started to read the Davenport series of books by John Sandford, which I really enjoy. He also has a series with Virgil Flowers as the main character, these are also very good. I have been buying my books from Thrift Books, where I get very good deals on almost new books. I am just now in the process of buy more of the Jury series. I'm having a hard time finding the Rainbow's End book. I enjoyed reading your comments very much. I am so happy to find a place where you are able to ask questions and not be charged $5.00 for the answers; which is quite important for seniors on a fixed income. I will look into some of the other authors that you are reading, and will, I'm sure have other questions for you in the future. Thank you very much Bruce for you quick response, although I wasn't real crazy about the answer. Preston|
I am able to answer most questions concerning the origin of the English mystery and police procedural. I also enjoy classic American detective stories(i.e. Ross Macdonald, Robert Parker, Sue Grafton). I also boast a sizable collection of techno-thrillers (i.e. Tom Clancy, Dale Brown) and global conspiracy novels( Robert Ludlum) as well
I was a Library Associate for close to thirty years for the Richmond Public Library with my expertise being Readers Advisory. I actually wrote a mystery story once which was not published but was an enjoyable undertaking
