Evening all.

Anyone got any good books for me to buy? I have read all of Torey Hayden's, but would be interested in Kathy Glass and any stories like 'A child called It', 'The Kid', or ones about being in prison abroad like 'Hell's Prisoner' or 'Marching Powder'.

I have read lots of books so you will have to bear with me if i have already read them, please let me know what you have got!

May also have a few books to trade

I have read both 'Cut' and 'Hidden' and both were excellent reads, I highly recommend them :thumbsup:
Have you gone through Torey Hayden? I find her books fascinating
I haven't got a 'The Works' near me unfortunately, the 3 libraries I frequent have nothing new for me and I really begrudge paying £4 for a book that rarely lasts me a week :giggle:

I would be interested, how much you want for it? I can buy it used from Amazon for £2.76 so would need to be a bit cheaper than that, or if you want any of mine we can just send them to eachother :thumbsup:

May not be what your after but I have: The Talisman of Troy: A Novel (Paperback)

Based on a true story,

A castaway tossed onto a deserted beach is the last survivor of a world that no longer exists. He has a terrible, fascinating story to tell - the true reason for which the Trojan War was fought...The protagonist of this tale is Diomedes, the last of the great ancient Greek Homeric heroes, who seeks to return to his beloved homeland after years of war against Troy. But destiny has other plans for him. Betrayed by his wife, who plots to murder him and persecuted by hostile gods, he has no choice but to turn his sails west, towards Hesperia, the mysterious mist-shrouded land that will one day be called Italy. He ventures boldly into this new world, for he carries with him the magic Talisman of Troy, a mysterious, powerful idol that can make the nation that possesses it invincible...

If you go to those books on Amazon, they will suggest similar others and you can read the feedback left - that's how I find mine :thumbsup:

The Damage Done is excellent

And Welcome to Hell
