I've Been Reading Again

The Broken Window by Jeffrey Deaver

The man who knows everything is the nemesis to Lincoln Rhyme's heroic band in this interesting novel. After reading this one for a short time I immediately wanted to sign up for identity theft protection. Also made want to go off grid as soon as possible. Too late of course - especially given a year's worth of blogs!

Basically there's a murder and the murderer covers it up by using computer data and planted evidence to frame another person. Except the guy he frames is Lincoln's cousin.

Darn interesting book though.
Chasing Darkness by Robert Crais
I like Robert Crais and I was not disappointed in this effort. Some good twists and turns in this one and well paced. Elvis Cole helped clear a guy who ends up 3 years later an apparent suicide. But he has an album of death photos of victims including the one he was found innocent. Cole is blamed by the family of the subsequent victims and has to hunt for the truth.
Infidel (The Lost Books Book 2) by Ted Dekker
First time I've read this author. I would have read more except they aren't available for my Kindle yet. A little youngish for me but I am adaptable.
Chosen (The lost Books Book 1) by Ted Dekker
Same as above. Really I am not that much into fantasy but I did enjoy reading this.
The Sleeping Doll: A Novel by Jeffery Deaver
This is a Kathryn Dance novel. I enjoyed it a great deal, too. Dance is a kinesics expert - body language - which is intriguing to me in itself. This one is a good effort by Deaver. (Note to self: no need to explain in the title that my novel is a novel as far as I can tell)

I would like to better understand the entire kinesics idea. One time I was at a social gathering and this guy was kind of invading my space and I was backing up. He went on and on about my body language giving away my thoughts. He wasn't wrong.

Wow, how long did it take you to read all those books. I don't read many novels but that one "Chasing Darkness" sounds good.
