    The Great Railway Bazaar is Paul Theroux's account of his epic journey by rail through Asia. Filled with evocative names of legendary train routes - the Direct-Orient Express, the Khyber Pass Local, the Delhi Mail from Jaipur, the Golden Arrow to Kuala Lumpur, the Hikari Super Express to Kyoto, and the Trans-Siberian Express - it describes the many places, cultures, sights and sounds he experienced and the fascinating people he met.

    The first Hispanic and third woman appointed to the United States Supreme Court, Sonia Sotomayor has become an instant American icon. Now, with a candor and intimacy never undertaken by a sitting Justice, she recounts her life from a Bronx housing project to the federal bench, a journey that offers an inspiring testament to her own extraordinary determination and the power of believing in oneself.

  • The Black Box: Harry Bosch, Book 18

    Story
    (1663)

    In a case that spans 20 years, Harry Bosch links the bullet from a recent crime to a file from 1992, the killing of a young female photographer during the L.A. riots. Harry originally investigated the murder, but it was then handed off to the Riot Crimes Task Force and never solved. Now Bosch's ballistics match indicates that her death was not random violence, but something more personal, and connected to a deeper intrigue. Like an investigator combing through the wreckage after a plane crash, Bosch searches for the "black box", the one piece of evidence that will pull the case together.

    Amazon Customer says: "Disappointing"
    "Harry Bosch still grabs attention"

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Black Box to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print version, but I prefer listening to this kind of story.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, there are plot turns that keep the excitement high.


    Which character – as performed by Michael McConnohie – was your favorite?

    Harry's daughter, Mandy.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, not extreme. No tears or laughter. I liked the whole thing & I'm very glad he is dating Hannah.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm eager for my next dose of Harry & company.
