I am hooked on Robert B. Parker's books! The first ones I read were the "Paradise" series, after seeing the TV series starring Tom Selleck. Now I am buying and reading every book he has put out. They are exciting, witty, and enough humor thrown in to keep you turning the page until I realize it's 1:30 in the morning and I STILL want to keep on reading. It is only with droopy eyelids that I have to close the book until the next day. The detective team of Spencer and Hawk in some of these books are a riot! These are must read books.

Tony Hillerman doesn't fail to deliver in these absolutely true bits of New Mexico folklore, gathered during his tenure as a newspaperman in Albuquerque. Absolutely fascinating if you're from - or interested in - NM culture. Fortunately it has been reprinted; with a foreward by Hillerman's daughter. New photos have been added. While I haven't seen a copy of the original, if you like Hillerman's writing in general you'd get a kick out of this. True stories that somehow - don't sound too true, but obviously are. Names have been changed to protect certain parties - and some of them wanted their real names in there! Did you know that New Mexico has rare outbreaks of bubonic plague? There are brief stories of just a page or more, and longer ones about particular incidents. A fun, fun, historical read.

I have been a raptor enthusiast for a little over 30 years now. In that time, I have banded and counted hawks as well as led many raptor viewing field trips. When I started, by far the best field guide on hawks was the first edition of the National Geographic field Guide to the Birds of North America, a good general guide to all of the birds, now in its sixth edition and still a great all around field guide. Then, William Clark came out with the first edition of his Field Guide to Hawks in the Peterson field guide series. That was what raptor folks were waiting for, a field guide devoted to diurnal raptors only. Not too long after, in 1988 came Hawks in Flight, which dealt with hawk identification a bit differently in that it was as much about what raptors do as well as what they look like. In the intervening 24 years, there have been many very good books on raptors, Clark and Brian Wheeler did one as a photographic guide, both of Clarks books were upgraded, Jerry Liguori did two excellent books of flying raptors and Wheeler did an awesome two-volume set of eastern and western raptors. Just about the time that one would figure that there was not too much to add, the second edition of Hawks in Flight came out by the same three authors who did the first edition. In the ensuing 24 years since their first effort, a great deal has been brought to everyones attention and this book incorporates much of that, but what sets this book apart from all of the others, is in its approach to learning about identifying hawks. Instead of each page standing alone, this book works more like a lesson on raptors. It takes the reader step by step through the process of identification for each group of similar species. I will keep all of the other raptor books I now have, but this one is the one I will wholeheartedly recommend to anyone who wants to really learn raptor identification

I've read most of Ms. Morrison's books. This one is excellent, as well but it's meant for mature people. Had I known it was going to take more than 3 days for delivery I would have purchased it from a local bookstore...

Toni Morrison is my favorite author and her books, written with the attention to detail of the Harlem Renaissance era, never dissappoints. I buy every book that she releases. I use to buy from a chain book store, however, for some reason, the quality on the binding of this book (in the book stores) was shotty when I was initially interested in purchasing it. The binding was perfect on the book I purchased from Overstock, and even with the shipping fee, I saved money! I am pleased.

This is the fifth of this series, I believe, and although some of Val McDermids standalone books are even better, this is by far my favorite of her different series. Tony Hill, a profiler with issues stemming from his abusive upbringing, and Carol Jordan, a Lancashire Detective Superintendent, who has made her way up through the British police hierarchy, make strides in their own personal relationship, which has been stymied by Tonys problems resulting from his mistreatment by an odious mother. Carol heads a special homicide force currently dealing with the murders of young adolescent boys in the Bradfield area. Saddled with a new boss who wants to cut costs by not hiring the more expensive but more talented Tony Hill as a profiler, Carol tries to solve the murders without asking Tony for free help. He is under contract to a city force about 100 miles south of Bradfield, working on the murder of a young girl. As Carol tries to work and also, on the side, help Tony with some of his issues surrounding the death of his always absent father, they finally find that the cases they are working on separately are converging. At the same time, Carols research into Tonys fathers life leads him into some posthumous acceptance of his father and some contemporary acceptance of himselfa hopeful sign that Tony and Carol may finally get together.
