No Middle Name

Lee Child's latest book, "No Middle Name", is a collection of short stories about Jack None Reacher. Fans will have accumulated most of them electronically over the years, but it's still neat to have them grouped together in one bundle.

Lie with me

"Lie with me" by Sabine Durrant is a fine example of British crime fiction. Set in part on a Greek island Pythos, it weaves the web in which to catch past actions. A clever book.

A few little lies never hurt anyone. Right?
Wrong.
Paul has a plan. He has a vision of a better future, and he's going to make it happen.
If it means hiding or exaggerating a few things here and there, no harm done.
But when he charms his way on to a family holiday...
And finds himself trapped among tensions and emotions he doesn't understand...
By the time he starts to realise that however painful the truth is, it's the lies that cause the real damage...
Well, by then, it might just be too late.

Designated survivor

"Designated survivor" is a TV series that's not only about conspiracy or USA politics. It's also about human decency. A bit of an oxymoron, decency and politics in one paragraph, but there you have it. Extremely watchable.
