Good trifecta…food, travel and writers
I picked up this book after Rick spoke at an event in my city.
Smart of him to give us a three in one……..a bit of foodie, travel, and some quality
Elevator setup is a dandy
I think this is one of his better efforts. The premise with the elevators is a really
good one and he squeezes it well.
The climax is fun if a bit of a stretch but I would put this in the upper ranks of his …
A novella, not a book
Almost gave it three stars. The stories are interesting, particularly at first, and well
written. The format and content kinds of fades in the last half.
My biggest objection is having this novella of modest length billed as a full lengt…
The best thread isn’t even with our heroes
Dual stories being told. The one about The Kid is actually better, clearly better, than
our two heroes going from one mind numbing interview to another. The Kid is
fascinating, as is his female muse, and work to the very end.…
Quite good short stories
Really good short stories. A couple were sensational. Most quite good. Only a
couple meh. All in all very good for a short story collection that was well worth
reading. Love the Ozark theme too.
This series needs new ideas and a fresh approach
It is time to pass along the writing about Lizabeth to someone else, or just hang up
This book becomes tedious. Instead of a cliffhanger about what happened on the …
Larsson’s Millennium Series
D-Day made fresh: Didn’t think it could be done
I thought I had read everything I needed to read about D-Day. Then Milton writes
this damn book.
It’s really good. He unearths a lot of stories that have never been told. And even t…
Allies Won on D-Day
Child should be ashamed
Embarrassing for Child. Silly, totally implausible, no ending. What was he thinking?
Surely he doesn’t need money this badly?
Time to end series
I’m done. Boring, cookie cutter stories book after book. This one is the worst. I was
Short of Pickett level of storytelling
Definitely not up to the Joe Pickett series level of storytelling. The ploy twists and
turns are fairly routine and predictable. The evil family is almost into caricature
level. Still, not very good Box is still pretty good. You do want to see how it all pla…
Dutch Girl also her mother’s complicated story
Audrey Hepburn’s survival in the Netherlands during WWII is quite interesting in
But the real heart of this story is her mother, a woman who loved Hitler and the …
Real storyteller with terrific action scenes
I loved reading this book. I got turned on to Heller by reading his most recent book
and then began reading all the previous books. This first one is one of my favorites.
Since it is set in my Colorado I found even more relatable.…
Not enough new stories
There are too many old stories in this collection to get the blood really pumping.
You’ve already read them or they seemed dated or not to really fit with flight
stories. There are some good one’s though and so the book has its moments. The …
