Poppet: Jack Caffery series 6 by Mo Hayder
I quite enjoyed this latest instalment of the "Walking Man" series.......although we don't see the Walking Man himself this time. I liked AJ, who works at the hospital that this story centres around - I'd be happy to meet up with him again in another book (I don't suppose she reads all these reviews any more but if she does - I also liked Penny). I felt that the Flea/Caffery scenario did move somewhat and although some people have complained that it is moving too slow, I don't think so.

ETC Twin LED Light Set ETC
I've had these lights for over a year. They are only on the second set of batteries and have been rained on (and snowed on) various times. They are good lights but as I say in my title, only really for city or town cycling (mainly concerning the front light). The back light is fine I guess - you just need to be seen, but the front is not bright enough for seeing the road in front of you. As a light to be seen it's fine but even in the city where I live there are badly lit roads and I am thinking of getting a second, brighter front light for this reason.
