Thriller Thursday

Two books recommendations, though for obvious reasons I've not done as much reading this week as I would have liked.


I am reading this one right now. I like his work because he sets his thrillers in multiple locations around the world, this one so far has me in Italy. His last went from the Caribbean to Israel to Switzerland. Me likey travel when I read, so thumbs up to THE CONFESSOR by Daniel Silva.


Cannibalism is illegal, right? Okay, then this book recommendation is crime-related because there's plenty of cannibalism in THE HEART OF THE SEA, by Nathaniel Philbrick. This is the true story behind Herman Melville's MOBY DICK, wonderfully researched and beautifully written, it is one of the best non-fiction works I've read in years.
