After I read Steve Bragaw’s review of Prince of Thieves by Chuck Hogan, I went straight to the library website to reserve a copy. And got a big fat REQUEST DENIED message, which befuddled me until I saw the fine print: “A copy has already been reserved for this account.”
But of course. Scott beat me to it.
Here’s how Steve hooked me (and, evidently, my husband):
…an amazing read. One of those books where you pick it up and say to yourself you’ll read a bit, and the next thing you know it’s 330 in the morning, your eyes are killing you, but you have to read just one more page to find out what happens.
Had me at “next thing you know.”
