Third installment of The Century Trilogy series covers
the time period of 1961 to 1989, basically the Cold
War. International politics are in the forefront. The third
generation of the families are now the leading folks.
Highly engaging & recommended.

Taking a break from John le Carre and Ken Follett, I discovered the author Robert Crais whilst looking for more characters like Jack Reacher. :)
His Elvis Cole / Joe Pike series is a hoot, now on book four out of 18. Pike is cut out of the Reacher cloth, but he talks less and wears sunglasses. They get into all kinds of productive trouble.

I read history books and current affairs but sometimes need some escapism and am fascinated with Jack Reacher, read all of Lee Child's books bar one or two. The earlier ones are generally better imo.

Elvis Cole is a more interesting character than is Joe Pike. If you get the urge, try out The Monkey's Raincoat. It's decent.

Great author...............and Joe Pike is a badass.............

Have you read the Vince Flynn books? Start with Term Limits, which is WAY ahead of it's time, then goes into the Mitch Rapp series, which are outstanding.

Yep, he's got over 20 books on the Mitch Rapp series. Sadly, he passed away from prostate cancer at 47 years of age but Kyle Mills is continuing the series. Not a big fan of the "ghost writer" concept but I still look forward to every Mitch Rapp book, as I do with the Tom Clancy series, even after his passing. I assume you've read the early Tom Clancy books? They are exceptional............my favorite is Without Remorse.

So does Kyle Mills' writing compare well with Vince Flynn's ... is it a good continuation?
I read a few of Tom Clancy's books, the later ones. Thanks for the new tip. Oh, and I agree that Joe Pike is a badass.
I looked at your profile - nice gear. Have you heard the LCD-4?

To stay on-thread, my wife has started on the Sue Grafton series featuring Kinsey Millhone. She is enjoying it.
