Here is a suggested reading list given to me by a friend, who optimistically suggested that these novels be consumed at the rate of one per week. Between packing, closing the deal on a new home, and general aggravation, I think a more realistic rate might be one per month.
The Long Goodbye by Raymond Chandler
The Crossing by Michael Connelly
Bruno, Chief of Police by Martin Walker
Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King
The Tooth Tattoo by Peter Lovesey
The Lion's Mouth: Hanne Wilhelmsen Book Four by Anne Holt
Icarus by Deon Meyer
Since Zeus has been incessantly bumping his head against my leg and meowing for the past 15 minutes, I'll have to go and see what his whimsical majesty is demanding from me this time.
