The Young Buglers

by G.A. Henty

Henty's historical novels center on coming of age stories for young men. As such they contain a slightly moralistic tone that was common for this period. The protagonists usually find themselves in an amazing sequence of circumstances that allow them to demonstrate their courage, loyalty, honesty, etc. This gives the story a very "dated" feel. Nonetheless, the stories are engaging and historically accurate. I have enjoyed several of them and this one is no exception.

The Snare

by Rafael Sabatini

Brilliant! Reads like a three-act play. Marvelous twists and turns with a superb ending that ties everything up nicely. Well worth your time.

No Orchids for Miss Blandish

by James Hadley Chase

An excellent read. Very entertaining. The plot is raw, the gangsters are disreputable and the author makes no attempt to put the reader at ease. Not for the faint of heart.

Clean Break

by Lionel White

A real page turner. Like all good pulp fiction, there are no real heroes - just varying shades of villains, hoods, weak-willed scumbags and gun molls. There are a few annoying edit problems, but this book is well worth the time.
