It wouldn't normally appeal to me (I already have bookshelves and a Kindle stuffed with war-related reading.) But at a price of exactly zero and no need for shelf space, why not? It's the sort of thing my reading group might go for and given the paperback price, (£4.85 at Amazon) it's a prime backlist title. And you know what they say about gift horses;-))

I'd love to go to Cuba, Mrs. J. My son's grandfather, Francisco, grew up wealthy on a sugar plantation, but when he was a teenager his entire family was killed and Francisco alone was saved by hiding clinging to the underside of a truck. Not long after, he escaped to Florida in a small boat but always longed for his homeland and years later went back to try to find his family and somehow ended up in prison. He suffered a skull fracture whilst there which completely changed his personality caused him to become quite violent at times, and after divorcing my son's grandmother, he ended up shooting his second wife and then himself. It was a tragedy, but he lives on through his son and grandson and those that remember him, and even through his many sufferings Francisco always loved Cuba, his beautiful country.

A very short one.

I'll never ever forget the sickening moment that we heard about the bomb going off in Manchester, Annie. It came on the news just about half an hour before my baby brother got married - and my poor Mum was actually physically sick when I told her about it after the ceremony - because as she reminded me later we had been sat outside drinking coffee and eating cake in front of a building that was completely obliterated in the blast at exactly the same time that it went off just the day before. We had gone in to collect her wedding hat and stopped off to have a little treat before heading back home again.

Over two hundred people were sadly hurt that day, and how nobody died in the appalling devastation that followed I'll never know, but I still thank God for it.

The Games Men Play
Joe Schwartz is a writer following in the footsteps of Dashiell Hammett, Donald Goines, and Chuck Palahniuk. In `The Games Men Play' he has combined twenty-one short stories that will take the reader on a haunting journey through the darkest St. Louis streets to its most rural counties.

The Voodoo Murders (Ed Noon Mystery Book 9)
The Adventures of Ed Noon, Private Eye, span over 30 novels written between 1953 and 1990. Noon starts out dirt poor with a tiny office in Midtown Manhattan (his "Mouse Auditorium") but success moves him to better digs, a lovely secretary (Melissa Mercer) and, eventually, the most important client of all: the President of the United States. The series concludes with a daring turn toward science fiction in the last two novels. Through it all, the wisecracking Noon is consistent: a movie and baseball-obsessed romantic who always fights the good fight. And, more often than not, wins. In this book a voodoo cult masterminded by the fantastic Count Calypso is trying to take over the world and Ed Noon is the only private eye between Manhattan and Port-au-Prince who can stop him.
