    Shikar by Jack Warner.

    A man-eating tiger is on the loose in small-town America. Not bad so far.

            Still working my way throough Gideon's Spies but also reading Tom Clancy's Fighter Wing. I admit that it is a bit out of date now, having been published in 1995, but it is helping me to understand the organisation of a USAF combat wing.

                      Hi All,
                      Charlie,
                      I thought at the beginning it would get straight down to the nitty gritty but then jumped to Manson's London HQ so the plot thickens very enjoyable though.

                            Recently read Menacing The Reich: Mosquito Operations in World War II. Very good read, covers all aspects of Mosquito ops. I got it on Kindle as I'd never seen it on sale in any bookshop.

                              I'm currently reading American Sniper.

                              This is a great read thus far!

                                    Hi All,
                                    Charlie,
                                    You where right about the Dogs Of War excellent read especially the wy Roux was persuaded to give up with the assassination of attempt on Shannon with a present in his mail box.
                                    I am now 1/3 the way into Andy McDermott's - Covenant Of Genesis, only problem is it refers back to three other novels in the series. Anybody else ever pick up a book and have had the same trouble ? I feel that if I read on I have missed out on the previous story lines involving these characters again anybody else felt the same ? Also does it really matter if the three previous books are different events involving the same characters ? Your thought please gentlemen.

                                    Geoff.

                                        A fascinating read and if you ever get the chance of his "walk and talk" around the SR71 in the AAM at Duxford don't miss it!

                                          The previous books are the same characters finding themselves in the same situations but in different parts of the world, so don't worry - you haven't missed much. Those Andy Mc Dermott books are a good holiday read, but that's about it.
                                          I've just finished reading my first Hemingway novel - A Farewell to Arms - seems to me to be an exercise in writing style, story didn't go anywhere much.
                                          Currently reading 'Forgotten Voices of the Second World War' by Max Arthur, part of an excellent series of Forgotten Voices books based on the oral history tapes collected by the IWM back in the seventies and eighties.
