The Black Echo - Michael Connelly

The series is one of the few that hasn’t deteriorated with age (as most do, and I am looking at you, Jack Reacher), and is a great escapist read in these depressing times. The author writes at length about police procedure, and the characters are vivid and hold up well. Give it a try to forget about the daily news.

Vietnam, An Epic Tragedy, 1945-1975 - Max Hastings

If you think 2020 is a tough year, the years of the Vietnam War weren’t all unicorns and sunshine either. As the expression goes: “those who cannot learn from the past are doomed to repeat it:, Vietnam as an era of American unrest is in some ways similar to that we are experiencing today. - Robert A. Karn

Bad Blood - John Carreyrou

A fascinating story of fraud, which also is the subject of a terrific new HBO documentary and an upcoming movie starring Jennifer Lawrence. Ms. Holmes is currently under indictment and awaiting sentencing soon. A fascinating story.

River of Doubt - Candice Millard

As the blurb says : “Along the way, Roosevelt and his men faced an unbelievable series of hardships, losing their canoes and supplies to punishing whitewater rapids, and enduring starvation, Indian attack, disease, drowning, and a murder within their own ranks.” Sounds like, and is, a pretty good read to me!
