So I read lots of novels, especially murder mysteries and tales of international intrigue. One of my favorite authors was Eric Ambler.
I picked up one of the paperbacks the other day, and he seems like a better writer today than he seemed 45 years ago - and the novels were published in the late '30s.
If you like stories of intrigue, I urge you strongly to go to your local library and demand any Eric Ambler novel your system has.
If you're a chick snooping around, you might like Helen MacInnes, but Ambler is a lot more realistic....
...The Travis McGee Series
But classic and gritty intrigue - Dashiell Hammett is my go to guy. And the 007 James Bond books by Ian Fleming are COMPLETELY different from the movies! They really do his writing a disservice . . .
Honey Badger don't care. - Randall
Am reading the Russell Blake JET series. She is the kicka$$ female version of Jason Bourne, only prettier. And probably a better aim.
