Drugs, sex, science fiction. A word painting. You’ll have to be in a particular frame of mind to unravel this unusual book.
by Elizabeth George
A tale of tale of love, passion, and betrayal. This 18th installment of Inspector Lynley’s tribulations is the first to take place outside England. Fans of the series will devour it, and newcomers will too.
by Herman Wouk
You know you’ve seen the book or heard about it. Wouk himself wrote the screenplay for the TV mini series—but reading the book has an altogether different impact. Don’t miss it!
by Tracy Hickman

by Ayn Rand
This is one of those books one feels one “has” to read to be a card-carrying member of the civilized world—if only it weren’t so intimidatingly long and complex and, well, difficult. Unless you are, as one of the characters in the book, “impervious to thought” this review may change your mind!

Follow the trail of a mega-dollar Ferrari in this “mystery, love story, thriller.”

by Michael Pearson
This builds up to the 1957 Targa Florio road race in Sicily. Fast cars, pretty women, a man with a plan. You’ll be entertained—if you don’t think too much.
by Henry Gregor Felsen
Boy builds car, wins trophy, loses car. In print continuously since 1953, this novel just doesn’t seem to lose its appeal.
by Edward Evans
A crime caper revolving around a vintage Rolls-Royce. More of a hair-puller than a nail-biter . . .
