Lawrence Block and P.G.Wodehouse

How two prolific writers found their voices

By Michael Dirda — The Washington Post

Sometimes a reviewer just can’t wait to write about a book. Even though Lawrence Block’s memoir, “A Writer Prepares,” isn’t available till June, I was recently sent an advance proof. Quite innocently, I started reading it — and couldn’t tear myself away. So consider what follows more a preview than a review of the pleasures awaiting in its pages.

My Review:   A Masterful Job

November 17, 2021

This one’s got it all: action, villains and a super plot that moves right along. You’ll be glad you started this one. And here’s the best news: First, there’s a whole bunch more books of Sophie’s adventures. Second, there’s dogs in all of ’em.

Can’t beat that with a stick.

Happy Reading!
Adam James

 

Winter Falls

jimmy blue series book 1

By Ian W. Sainsbury

They murdered his parents, shot him in the head, and left him to die. They should have made sure.

Twenty years after Tom Lewis watched his parents die, those responsible are being killed. One by one.

Gentle, brain-damaged Tom, a giant of a man who can barely speak, can’t be responsible for their deaths. Can he?

When Tom Lewis was shot, something new was created. Something unique. Something deadly. Something patient enough to plan revenge for twenty long years.

Meet Jimmy Blue.

My Review:   Can’t Put it down!

November 9, 2021

Well written. Moves right along. Great characters — especially Tom and Jimmy Blue. Great action and suspense. The best news is that there are even  more books in this series. 

Can’t beat that with a stick.

Cheers and Happy Reading!
Adam James
