    One of the very best authors. I've read almost all his books excluding the short stories. No one even comes close, in the genre of Westerns. My 8th grade teacher recommended L'Amour to me years ago and I started reading his books then.

    Another book/author recommendation: Anything by Clive Cussler, especially his Dirk Pitt books, and NUMA files titles. All very well written and suspenseful.

    If you like Cussler you should check out Vince Flynn and his Mitch Rapp books, also Lee Child and the Jack Reacher books.

    Dave, have you ever read, Curse of the Blood Ghoul?? I think it was written by Vincent Price.

    Reiterating a recommendation I made. The John Rain series, by Barry Eisler, six titles, I think, but the titles have been changed. A Clean Hit in Tokyo is the first one. Used to be something else, Rain Fall, Hard Rain, Rain Storm etc. These books are hard to put down. I'm reading them a second time now, finished A Clean Hit in Tokyo and am now on number 2, A Lonely Resurrection.

    John Rain is a paid assassin, takes out only the bad guys, no other targets. A work of fiction. But suspenseful, plenty of martial arts action (Rain is an expert); the author was at one time a CIA agent.

    Besides the action, the constant details of surveillance and counter-surveillance are very interesting in themselves; again, probably learned by the author while with the Central Intelligence Agency.

    Saw the movie, but never started reading "Jurassic Park" until yesterday.

    Highly recommended and only 2.99 on Kindle rather than the much higher prices usually charged for ebooks.

    Another recommendation I've made before...Strong Men Armed--US Marines Against Japan---by Robert Leckie. This book combines narrative with PERSONAL narrative about many of the Marines who participated in those battles in the Pacific War, in detail, making the narrative much more interesting than it normally would be.

    Read it and it is excellent.

    A great fictional series based on actual events in USMC history is "The Corps" series by W.E.B.
    Griffin. There are 10 books all together. Semper Fi, Call to Arms, Counterattack, Battleground, Line of Fire, Close Combat, Behind the Lines, In Danger's Path, Under Fire and Retreat Hell!

    Read just the first two books of the series The Corps, and they are excellent indeed, Gunny. Good recommendation.
