    That one's fiction, but really good! I like Patterson, going back to Along Came a Spider.:)

    Started the final book of the Mickey Haller series last night (not sure if there will be additional books in this series).

    The Law of Innocence by Michael Connelly.

    The first several chapters have been great, but I got to bed really late and at 1:34AM I had to put the book down and get some sleep (I was a zombie on my first call this morning).

    "Holidays in Hell" by P. J. O'Rourke

    P. J. and I had our favorite bars, just across the same little alley. Sometimes there was a bit of crossover. This book is from 1986, and just predictive about where we are today. And BTW number two son ended up in the same dorm as P. J. thirty-some years later, and got to meet him on a P. J. return to his alma mater.

    The South Sea Bubble
    By Lewis Melville. London, 1921

    An interesting but somewhat read about one of the world's first "great" scams. Human greed, culpability, and criminal tendencies have changed in over 300 years. You might think you were reading about Enron, WorldComm or Madoff.

    At least they knew who to deal with directors of a criminal enterprise back then. They locked the directors of the South Sea Company in the TOWER OF LONDON and confiscated their property / estates to compensate investors for their losses!

    Well, I am impressed with the breadth of the group. I would not have predicted that level of literacy to be common in a bunch of old guys sitting around in a stained white undershirt, beer belly and all, whilst belching, and droning away on 75 meters; No kids No lids No space cadets
    (yes, I heard him many times)

    OTOH, I have no highly intellectual reading list to impress with. I have had to resort to writing my own books and stories, salting them away, and after I have forgotten what I wrote, reading them (with snorts and giggles)
    Forgetting what you have written is one of the surprising benefits of senility :D
    (I should write a book on that)
    The most recent is a 100,000 word novel, The China President (be awed at my brilliance, Clancy)
    Of course it is too soon, even for me, to have forgotten so the pleasure of reading it has to wait - no wine before its time (unless it is Ripple)
