One Last Breath by Stephen Booth

In books read on July 20, 2004

Another excellent episode in this series. I've left it too long to write up and can only remember I thought it was pretty good. Diane's becoming more real as we find out more about her. This is good.

due to the lack of finding anything i think will be interesting to anyone else on the web lately i’ll post something interesting to me found on the web lately. this is my great great great grandad’s advert in the 1862 business directory of birmingham.

thomas darbyshire, eye glasses and spectacles

i found it using historicaldirectories.org which is a) a great resource and b) a candidate for the worst search interface in the history of the web. also i can’t make much sense of the information in the urls so this link may take you to the right page of the original directory or it may not.

I'll write this series off as not my kind of thing. Just as when I read the first book in the series I can't quite put my finger on what I didn't enjoy about it. Nothing's really wrong with it it just doesn't make my pulse race or my fingers scrabble to turn the pages over.

Lazybones by Mark Billingham

In books read on July 6, 2004

I found this really hard to get ino, chiefly I think because the main detective Thorne is finding it difficult to motivate himself to find the murderer and this kind of rubbed off on me. (The victims of the murderer are rapists themselves.) Once Thorne got excited about the case I did too. Good ending, I could see it coming for once but that's not bad, just adds to the thrills really.
