Dog Walks Man
This review contains a spoiler, though I don't think it will be a spoiler to anyone who reads dog books, but - who knows.      I had a very strange reaction to this book. It's …

The Ghosts of Cannae: Hannibal and the Darkest

It pains me to give An Arkady Renko Novel a meager two stars, but Martin Cruz Smith has put out a book that falls short of his usual great work. It remains true that Mr. Smith paints a picture of modern …

The Girl Who Played With Fire (2010 movie)

Not having read the book (one of the few it seems) I had no idea what to expect. I thought it was a terrific movie: taut, compelling, really interesting characters, no plot holes, atmospheric, brutal, …

posted a Quick Tip about Dog On It: A Chet and Bernie Mystery. September 02, 2010
Dog On It
