Emma by Jane Austen (1/9/10)
Murder on the Links by Agatha Christie (1/9/11)
It's all Emma's fault that I didn't get any more done.
5 Bullets by Lee Thayer (1944): From the frontispiece: Under the dark hands, the small planchette spelled out Peter Clancy's name. Perhaps it would be mere superstition to consider it an omen, but if the red-headed private investigator had not suddenly appeared in that small college town in Florida when his friend Zingara Hartley, retired newspaper syndicate writer, thought he was at least three hundred miles away, this story of the tragedy that followed hard upon his coming would not have been written. Instead it would have appeared only in the public Press as an ugly, stupid murder, fathered by jealousy, committed under peculiar circumstances that left little sympathy for the youthful murderer's probable passions and complexes and less doubt as to his guilt.
