    I've been recommended this book many times. Have to admit I does have my interest.

Although the story being told does have a conclusion, it also makes use of a framing device which is sort of left unresolved. A really enjoyable, if emotionally draining read.

    I love the Vince Flynn books and since his passing, Kyle Mills taking over the writing has been an amazing combination. I've got an advance copy of the new book that comes out on Tuesday and I'm hoping to see Mills on his new book tour since he's coming to a store that I can actually go to.

    On the Kindle front, I'm now reading Arsène Lupin versus Herlock Sholmes (1908), the second Lupin book by Maurice Leblanc. It contains the fairly lengthy The Blonde Lady and the short story The Jewish Lamp.

    I recall you mentioning you were getting the advance copy of the new novel. Good luck with the book signing in the near future! I still have quite a while before I get to the post-Flynn books.

    Heh. It is the sloppiest of the novels I have read by him, but I still found it entertaining. FWIW, the ending is worth the effort, IMO.

    Word of warning we've been waiting on the next book since 2013, the first two make for pretty good standalones but the third was meant to kick off a more overarching story. And then the author had personal stuff happen and we've been waiting ever since

    Agreed.
    I'd recommend Glory Road, Starship Troopers or Have Spacesuit Will Travel.

    I just started The Future by Al Gore.
