Alright the word is out, I do not read just pulps, Oh the horror! Yeah, yeah, I get suckered into reading other stuff. I mean take a look at these 4 I just finished, wonderful reads and some pulp tie-ins too!
All of the novels have something I like, the Templar one was especially good ( it's part 2 but still a good read), I love a little historical fiction, mixed with the FBI and well, the sex wasn't too bad either. The odd part, and it may just be me is that both Khoury and Patterson used the word beat every time something came up that you could have used say heartbeat or some such, never used a different work, "she waited for just one beat..." not a second or a min. just a beat! I don't know, Someone writing under another name, or is it a catch word I know nothing about? As for the Sacred Ginmill, excellent Matt Scudder detective story, not much action, a lot of drinking and a great ending, really twisted way of getting even. The Patterson book with his detective Michael Bennett is trying to solve a murder while on a cops vacation with his 10 kids and his dad. Very cool and sick at times crimes the purp pulls off.
I recommend all of them, I don't like giving away the stories or the endings, so not much of a reviewer, but by far to me and the last book I wanted and did read was Small town, is the best of the lot and recommend the most, awesome detective novel and a great romance too!
