I'm on a Frederick Forsyth run. Loved The Afghan & now just ordered several more old Forsyth books on Amazon.

Oh, the Vicky Bliss series? (Is that the right name?)
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
- "Into Battle"

No,not Vicky Bliss, but I think some of the characters from that series may appear in these, so they're sort of stand-alone cross-overs, or something. But the main characters are different.

One of my local towns has a big 4th of July *do* with all kinds of fun events, but the draw for me today is the FOL sale. I'll check back in later ;)

I've won a review copy of Red Dragon - White Dragon by Gary Dolman from Library Thing's Early Reviewers June batch. It's a Victorian/Arthurian murder mystery.
