The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
I just finished this book today. Valerie told me about it three months ago and I've been on hold for it at the library ever since. I picked it up on Thursday and ended up being under the weather, so I wasn't able to read it as much as I wanted, i.e., I fell asleep. I am a pathetically slow reader and I could not put this down, provided I was awake, of course. This book is absolutely brilliant suspense. I am putting it in my Amazon basket (for Ian), along with it's sequel which is coming later this summer. It's part of a trilogy and all three are published posthumously. There's interesting information about him on the Wiki. I find more and more than I enjoy foreign authors. I was reading my book while eating lunch at the China Diner today. My fortune said, "Read a novel - and learn more about life." Hmmmmm.
Another book that I loved was Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Luis Zafon. I read it, then listened to it in the car and loved it just as much. His book was translated from Spanish and he also has another book being released this summer. It's going into my Amazon basket as well.
I would love suggestions from suspense lovers, mysteries excluded. Sadly, I'm allergic to them.
