Cover ArtFind my killer,
This is a very well written mystery with satisfying twists and turns to enjoy, like one of those evening drives along an undiscovered parkway leading to what I call "strangetown". I discovered this book by chance while walking through the stacks. Hopefully this author has other works.   posted Sep 12, 2014 at 7:41AM

Cover ArtShots fired : stories from Joe Pickett Country
by C. J. Box
I have waited 8 months for this book, "Shots fired". What a waste. I am disappointed at the lack of effort being put into writings these short stories. I feel let down by whom was arguably my latest favorite author.   posted Aug 23, 2014 at 11:32AM

Cover ArtHobson’s choice [videorecording]
by Lean, David
Hobson’s Choice starring Charles Laughton, John Mills, and Brenda De Banzie was released in 1954. A wonderful film showing their acting talents, the direction of the great David Lean, and the supporting cast of British characters that nail their performances. Lean directed many epics but Hobson’s Choice is an equal to them all. I love this film and have seen it at least 6 times. Laughton was always fat but he is theatre to the last cell of his mind and body. When Laughton is given the lead then success will be assured. When Laughton is supporting only then there is a question if you will remember the film at all.   posted Aug 14, 2014 at 9:56AM

Cover ArtThe Informer [videorecording]
by Ford, John
Victor McLagen won the Academy Award for this 1935 production of a oafish Irishman paying the ultimate price for informing on his friend, Frankie McPhillip. Never forget that Hollywood is the land of make believe and mind manipulation. McLagen was English. But what a gigantic man. Was much older than John Wayne but in his prime I believe he would have flattened the Duke. A pretty good film for its time. I’ve read the book by O’Flaherty which the movie tries to follow.   posted Aug 11, 2014 at 9:34PM

Cover ArtCountry matters [videorecording]
"Country matters" starts out as one lucky man apparently having sex with more women than he can count. The problem is he winds up murdered by one of them. Midsomer Murders has a tendency to poke fun of people with any sense of religion and yet offers only decadence and murder as an alternative.   posted Aug 3, 2014 at 11:29AM
