Graveyard of Memories (A John Rain Novel) by Barry Eisler
Having read all of Barry Eisler's previous novels (including the less that stellar Treven series) and most of his short stories I would consider myself a fan. As with most authors some of his books are better than others, with the earlier Rain novels generally being stronger than the more recent efforts in my opinion.

Philips Sonicare HX6511/44 EasyClean Sensitive Rec&hellip by Philips Sonicare
4.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Sonicare, 23 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is the second Sonicare that I have owned and I would happily keep buying them, as they're about the best electric toothbrush on the market. Not that I will need to buy another, since they tend to be built well and last a long time; something that's true for this latest model.

In fact this Sonicare model is pretty much identical to the older versions. The changes are mostly cosmetic and on the whole they're changes for the better. Gone, for example, are the blue rubbberised sections on the handle which used to become stained and grubby. In their place is a plain white, sleeker finish that should wear better.

Other than that and a slight change to the on-off… Read more
