      Ok, here’s the deal: Torture does not work to get information. Period. You do not torture people to get information, you torture people to send information, or rather, to send a message. What is that message? (Originally from Dec 16, 2010, but it seems worth re-upping for a new generation of readers – Ian.) We Torture People […]

That Book Kept Me Up All Night

Damn you, Atrios.  He’s been pushing that damn book by Bee Ridgway for the past couple of months.  It’s called The River of No Return. It just so happened that I was looking for a good book to read on Audible but it’s not out in recorded format yet.  So, I downloaded it to my iPad.  Just a few quick pages, I thought, before I clean out the garage.  Before I knew it, it was getting dark outside.  Then I just gave up all pretense and read the whole thing last night.  I couldn’t put it down.

Now, I’m going to be dragging my ass all day long and I still have to clean the garage.

If you like stories about time travel, creepy guys with dead eyes, and international conspiracies, combined with  a touch of wholesome, 19th century bodice ripping, check it out.

I smell a series.

  1. I’m so glad you liked it. I put a library hold on it since I can’t buy anything until we get our tangled mess sorted. NOW I can’t wait!

  2. The ereaders are wonderful, if a little dangerous in the financial sense.
    Because I can adjust the font size and the backlight, I’ve read more books in one year than I have in the past ten.
    I’ll check out “River of no return.”
    You were right about the Hillary Mantel books-great reads.

  3. Since we are recommending books, China
    Mieville’s novel “The City & The City” was
    excellent reading.

  4. My first though was that this was an old movie. Not to be confused with the 1954 movie where Marilyn Monroe, Robert Mitchum and Tommy Rettig went down a dangerous river on a raft also titled “River of No Return..” Tommy Hilfiger later bought the three pairs of jeans worn by Marilyn for $42,000.
