Hard to express how terrific “Dark Sky” by @cjboxauthor is: I am still a purist though and think new readers should start w/ first book and read all 21 in order. The characters age very well, and playing Joe Pickett bingo is fun too. An observation: – source

From “Grant” to the new thriller from @AlexBerenson, “The Power Couple.” Gets a grip instantly. Every parent’s nightmare and Alex brings the page-turning he perfected in the #JohnWells series. (Not a Wells book, btw, but just as good.) – source

When has the forward to a book actually mattered? The four pages offered by Justice Elena Kagan to “The Essential Scalia” do. It’s an example of deep respect for, and friendship with, an intellectual opponent. Much needed these days. Much to be admired. – source
