Company of Liars is a great choice!

Since my TBR list is getting uncontrollable (snigger), I'm nominating something from it: The Needle in the Blood, by Srah Bower (set around the Battle of Hastings).

Hey Chuck - I thought you might have another go for Robert Low's "Whale Road", after all, sheer persistence eventually worked for Misfit :)

ROFL. How did you know that my first post on the Jan. book of the month was going to be that everyone picked it just so I'd stop nominating it :D :) :p

I'm hoping persistence works for my choice "A Question of Guilt", I'm just going to keep suggesting it until it gets picked, so just be forewarned!

Hello Annis....I think I was the only one that voted for Low's "Whale Road.....His latest will be released in March 2009....."the White Raven"....maybe I give that a go on April or May Book of the Month lists.....Reverte's The Kings Gold is on hold....I picked up Liss's The Whiskey Rebels and really enjoying the intriguing tale......Christmas Cheers to one and all......

I will try to put up the poll for this tonight - after doing battle at the shops, tidying the spare room and wrapping all the presents!
