Die Trying by Lee Child Die Trying by Lee Child

Jack Reacher is an innocent bystander – in the wrong place at the wrong time – when a woman is kidnapped. Now, he’s at the mercy of a group of men demanding an impossible ransom, for this mysterious woman is worth far more than Reacher ever suspected. And though she doesn’t ask for his help, he’s going to give it to her … Because ex-military policeman Jack Reacher is a hero. He’s used to saving lives. But this time he’s going to take a few before he’s through….

Ordered this one from FrugalReader. Have been wanting to try this series for a while. This is the second in the series. Hopefully it’s a new series that I can enjoy.


Killing Floor by Lee Child Killing Floor by Lee Child

Ex-military policeman Jack Reacher is a drifter, just passing through. He is in Margrave, Georgia, for less than a half hour when four policemen arrive, shotguns in hand, to arrest him for murder. All Jack knows is he didn’t kill anybody. Not in their town, and not for a long time …

Ordered this one from FrugalReader as well. This is the first in the series. Am really hoping this one is as good as I hope it will be 🙂


RFK Assassination The Robert F. Kennedy Assassination: New Revelatios on the Conspiracy and Cover-Up by Philip H. Melanson, Ph.D.

This breakthrough book provides the basis for a major new effort to re-open the flawed investigation of the Robert F. Kennedy assassination. Melanson’s investigation has unvoered startling new evidence of a murder conspiracy – despite the fact that the supposed lone gunman, Sirhan Sirhan, was caught “red-handed.” … The numerous glaring and unanswered questions in this case, coupled with the simplistic official solution, caused this investigative researcher to question whether there was additional unexamined evidence. … With masterful research and exceptional courage, this book challenges the official history of a national tragedy. At last, we have a solid case for a re-investigation of the RFK assassination.

Ordered this one from PBS. I was a history major, and the 1960s is a favorite era of mine to study. I am especially interested in assassinations, though. (Lincoln, JFK, MLK, RFK….) So I was excited to see this book was available. I have never read anything that has dealt primarily with the RFK assassination, and I am looking forward to learning more about it.
