    Oh my goodness - how can anyone stop laughing at The Bridges of Madison County or The DaVinci Code long enough to hate them? Anytime the author identifies SO clearly with his main character that the...

    I love Love LOVE Minette Walters. Her first books are more traditional mysteries, and her later books are more psychological thrillers - you can't be expected to solve the crimes from clues dropped...
