Just finished " Sworn in Secret" by Sanford Holst. It's on Freemasonry and the Knights Templar. Being a Freemason and history junkie I am fascinated/addicted with Masonic and Templar books.

About to re-read Wilbur Smith Assengai

Ex-soldier Leon Courtney guides the rich and powerful from America and Europe on big-game safaris. After a successful expedition with U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt, Leon became one of the world’s most sought-after hunters. Now, he is about to find out that celebrity comes at a hazardous price.

Leon has been recruited by the British forces to gather intelligence on Count Otto von Meerbach, a German industrialist who builds aircraft for the Kaiser’s growing army. As his safari guide, Leon is closer to the Count than anyone—and it’s not long before he stumbles upon a plot that could turn the tides of the coming World War. But when he falls for the Count’s beautiful mistress, Eva, all bets are off. Now Leon finds himself desperately in love, dangerously alone to stop the Count’s plan…and in grave peril as he learns more about the enigmatic Eva.

"Odd Apocalypse" by Dean Koontz.  I have read the previous four in the series and enjoyed all of them.  I also just finished "Black House" by Stephen King and Peter Straub.  What a Face

Diana West's "American Betrayal," a very disturbing book. Judging by her research, the history of WW II needs to be re-written, or at least viewed through a different lens. And if it's also true that the war could have been ended several years earlier, then D-day, the bombing of Dresden, the German death camps, the Battle of the Bulge, etc., would never have happened, which is appalling. The book actually makes one progressively ill as one reads it. How's that for a recommendation? The point of the book is that the same disease that informed us then, threat denial (in regard to communism), is operative today in regard to Islam, a religion decidedly not of peace. The author merely asks, "Why?" Not for fans of FDR and the various spies and Stalin-licks in his administration.

Good to know. I have been meaning to read it for years. Finally getting around to it. This is the first year that my little ones have become a bit more self sufficient and now I have lots to catch up on. cheers

Thanks Fatman - I'm nearing the end of a novel and ready to start something good.

BTW the television series of Stephen King's 'Under The Dome' started this week on UK tv. I really enjoyed the book - one of the reviewers of 'The Dome stated that he just didn't want the book to end. I felt much the same way......

The Devil in Silver by Victor LaValle. Brilliant stuff, alternating between hilarious gallows humor and being creepy as hell...

I am happy you are liking it Jers. Stephen King can be hit or miss for me. I love his older stuff, and he went in an odd direction for a while that I did not enjoy, literature wise. His newer stuff I like as well.

I feel exactly the same way. The last few years he's really been back on the right track, at least to my tastes. I just finished Under the Dome, then 11/22/63, and will probably jump on Joyland soon (I've got a re-read of a crime/thriller series lined up first).

I will need to hit the used book store and see if I can pick up a copy of Under the Dome this weekend. Thanks for the insight!
