Hole in One finished

I just finished #21 Hole in One by Catherine Aird. I rate it a 7.
Detective Chief Inspector C.D. Sloan works in the deceptively quiet town and county of Calleshire, where for many years he’s endured the pressures of his demanding and unreasonable boss and the wearying company of Constable Crosby, Sloan’s all too constant but rarely helpful sidekick. With both these millstones about his neck, Sloan is called in to investigate a most unusual death in his most perplexing case ever.
At the Berebury Golf Course in Calleshire County, golfing beginner Helen Sewell has gone off in search of her wayward ball that she has hit into the dreaded “Hells Bells” bunker. What she finds there under the soft sand of the course’s steepest bunker is most surprising and unwelcome – a lightly buried corpse. Now Sloan must unravel a case with more twists and turns than the course itself.

I've now caught up on Catherine Aird's series. This is the latest one she's written.
I'm currently reading Califia's Daughters by Leigh Richards and plan on finishing tomorrow. Then I'll start the Christopher Priest book on Saturday and one of the pb myteries on the TBR shelf at work Friday night; probably Deborah Adam's Jesus Creek book All the Blood Relations.

wow you're reading speed always impresses me lol

I was wondering if you had ever read anything by Robin Cook because here's the thing: after coming home from Xmas shopping, I find in one my shopping bags a book by Robin Cook (The Sphinx) that I hadn't purchased... so I'm wondering... is this some kind of sign? lol! anyway, I hear he writes thrillers and Mum only reads thrillers... so that'd be one less Xmas present lol

free books can you believe it?

Robin Cook
I think Robin Cook writes medical thrillers. The only one of his I may have read was Coma and I don’t think I read it, just watched the movie.

I found this online at Robin Cook if it helps:
Doctor and author Robin Cook is widely credited with introducing the word "medical" to the thriller genre, and twenty years after the publication of his breakthrough novel, Coma, he continues to dominate the category he created. Cook has successfully combined medical fact with fantasy to produce a succession of New York Times bestsellers…
You’ve already got the book but here’s the synopsis:
It was the magic and mystery of an empire long past that beautiful Erica Baron came to explore. Innocently she cast her eyes in forbidden places and discovered the clue to a treasure beyond imagination. It was then that terror overtook her, as the most fearful curse of the ancient world and the most savage menace of the modern one threatened to detroy her. One dangerously attractive man offered Erica help...he offered her protection...he offered her love. And in this strange, exotic land of seductive evils, where no one could be trusted, desire became for Erica the deadliest snare of all...

Ok, in reading through some of the Amazon reviews…this was not helpful. lol Some liked it, some didn’t. I get the impression though that this is not a medical thriller. I suppose she’s already read Tom Clancy, John Grisham and Dan Brown?

What I’m wondering is...what did you buy that is not in the shopping bags and was replaced by the Robin Cook book? But one less Christmas present is GREAT!

Re: Robin Cook
actually, it didn't replace anything, it was just added... maybe it was already in the shopping bag and when she put my stuff in it, she didn't realize it was inside... honestly I have no idea... I actually got one more book for free...

thanks for the help anyway...
