Back with a bang

The last few editions of Lost Library Thing showcased a return to the theme of doctors and nurses covers. This week it is the return of the book cover theme Guns & Girls. So who is packing heat today?

Murder Is Out by Lee Thayer

What a stunning cover this is; the lifeless eyes of the victim with their extended fingers in extreme close up while in the background is the femme fatale holding the gun but looking extremely unworried.

I’m watching Mad Men season 4 on DVD at then moment. I find the show incredibly engrossing and I pity those people who watch the show on TV week to week. How could I wait a week for another fix of this show? With the complete series on DVD I just cue up the next episode and before you know it is past midnight. My co-workers are probably wondering why I have been coming to work recently feeling tired. Read the rest of this entry »
