The Black Angel by John Connolly. Like the book but it is so long! I am a firm believer that most books could be condensed to 300 pages or less.

I'm reading The World According To Garp by John Irving.  It's rare for me to read something that isn't crime fiction, but I do like John Irving.  I read The World According... a few years ago, and am enjoying re-reading it.  Lifeless is lined up on my shelf as my next one to read!

I have read Garp and all John Irving up to and including A Prayer For Owen Meany, and I think he is fantastic author.
I don't think Peter will like them much as the last one I picked up in the shops was about a 1000 pages long.

I am reading Karin Slaughters 'Faithless' she is ace. I will never have a bad word to say about her writing. Even her news letters are entertaining and funny. Grin
If anyone gets a chance go to www.karinslaughter.com its a great website, I'm sure Mark wont mind me plugging her website but if he does I apologise.

at the mo i`m reading the last in Scarlett Thomas`trio,not a trilogy as such.Seaside.All 3 are great,pacy reads and even though she dismisses them as 'forced chicklit fiction',they are all literate crime novels and like Marks`novels can be followed or read as a one off piece of work.Check them out when you have no more Billingham unread.Dead Clever,In Your Face and Seaside.

Thanks Jayne, I know Karin mentions Mark sometimes on her website and news letters, but I was a bit scared as I know some forums dont like links to other websites without permission. Next time ill PM you first just in case.

That's fine, Jade. There's a link to Karin's website on Mark's LINKS page anyway so it's no problem at all that she's got an extra plug. I'm sure she'll be chuffed to bits!  Smiley

I'm also reading Faithless, although I did get a few strange looks when I dropped my wife off at her church choir practise not so long ago and decided to stay in the church and read rather than drive home and back again later.

Nothing like a burning cross on the front cover and a title like Faithless to stir up feelings among dedicated church goers!! Thankfully most saw the funny side of my unintentional efforts to offend!!

Karin Slaughter is excellent and I've read all of hers in chronological order, as I've done with Mark's and Ian Rankin's `Rebus` series. Oh and James Patterson's `Alex Cross` series.
