Still Life with Crows - Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child

You have to read this one just to figure out what the title's about! It's another Agent Pendergast novel but this one doesn't take place in New York. Would you believe Kansas? I was up 'till about 02:00 this morning finishing this one. It's hard to put down, as are most Preston & Child stories. Very highly recommended.

The Cabinet of Curiosities - Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child

This is another Agent Pendergast novel that keeps you on the edge of your seat all the way. Dr. Nora Kelly and reporter Bill Smithback are in the cast of characters. New York is the setting with the Museum of Natural History playing a big part. Pendergast has some family history to deal with -- again. Very highly recommended.

The Saboteurs - W.E.B. Griffin & William E. Butterworth IV

Griffin's books have never disappointed me. This one is no exception. What made this particularly interesting was that I'm also reading Cryptonomicon by Stephenson at the same time and the books overlap in time and topic. This is a WWII novel about the OSS. A staple of Griffin's. The cast of characters will be familiar if you've been reading much Griffin, and there's much to read. This book is part of his Men of War series. You can find all of his books on his web site. Highly recommended.
