  1. Don't know if this is any help or if it answers your question, but "The Girl Who Played With Fire" is available on Amazon. If you knew this, please ignore my post.
  2. I've just finished, what I believe is, Ian Rankin's latest offering DOORS OPEN. I am deeply disappointed. Nothing very original about an art heist, it all going wrong and you know the rest. Can we have Rebus back NOW, please.
  3. I'm half-way through 'Chemistry of Death', very enjoyable and I'm expecting to read the rest of his books.
  4. My first reaction is that you haven't looked very far. To start with, I would suggest you have a look at the books and authors that have been discussed on here. You will find plenty of better books than the two you have mentioned.
  5. I've just finished reading 'No Second Chance", a non-Bolitar story, and I have to say I don't feel it is one of his better efforts. In my opinion, a confused and slightly unbelievable plot, a lack of developement of characters, characters being introduced to enable the plot to continue and then fading out of the story, all contribute to a rather disappointing book.
  6. Can't speak for others but to me the plot isn't that important, the characters and the interplay between them is the thing. As with Rebus, I feel I want to meet and be a friend of Grace.
  7. I'd agree to anything that keeps the character of Rebus alive.
  8. Yep, I've read six of the Myron Bolitar books (special offer from "The Book People") and they are very samey. I have read one of the stand alone novels "Tell No One"(three more to go) and I enjoyed that.
  9. I've read all three of the Grace books and enjoyed them all. His new one has, or is just about to, been released. I have pre-ordered the paperback version, not just being a cheap-skate!!!, paperbacks are more easily stowed in a pocket or small bag, for reading while travelling.
