I love wintertime ... too cold to go outside but perfect weather to read a good book
I read a western, set in the 1850's, by Patrick Dewitt (his second novel), The Sisters Brothers
. Goodness gracious what an unusual story. Take a peek at Dewitt's website http://patrickdewitt.net/works.html
. And definitely give the book a look-see. I'm not normally a fan of westerns, per se, and I think the book "wrapped up" a little too quickly ... but overall, it's a great ride.
Now I'm reading Robert Crais' The Watchman
... an obscenely wealthy young lady sees something she shouldn't have ... is placed in witness protection ... and is guarded by the ever enigmatic Joe Pike ... gawd, I so enjoy a good shoot 'em up tale!
