Four star review of The Killer Collective by Barry Eisler
A complicated story featuring characters from Eisler’s other books and involving people in high places and a child pornography ring. Full of action, but also emotion, even romance. The scenes that take place in Paris are especially riveting. Since I haven’t read any of his other stories, this was my introduction to Livia Lone, Dox, John Rain, Hort, Larrison and Delilah.
Five star review of Finding Myself in Borneo by Neill McKee
A fascinating account of the authors experiences as a member of the Canadian equivalent of the Peace Corps, the CUSO in the late 1960’s. He taught in Sabah, Malaysia (North Borneo), and explored southeast Asia. The people he met, the sights he saw and the events he experienced make for a great read. He does an excellent job of conveying his happiness with what he learned, and what he brought to his students and the residents of Sabah.
