Way to go Elysium!

Got just the one yesterday, "Worth Dying For" by Lee Child. After the fairies etc of "Incubus" I think I need some alpha male action, as it were!

I bought a signed copy from Hardwick Hall in Derbyshire (I think) of 'The second sister' by Marie Sandeford years ago, but have never got round to reading it yet - do post what you think Amanda :)

Madeleine, I think it was you that mentioned Tom Cruise is playing Jack Reacher. I mentioned it to my husband about 25 minutes ago and since then I've been hearing yelling and a myriad of cuss words. The hubby is not happy!
