(Day 12 - #MoneysTooTightToMention & Day 13 - #Panic)

*Given that the book begins with an elaborate plan to rob an armored car in front of an Atlantic City casino, we can assume that #MoneysTooTightToMention. But even the best plans can go awry. And when it does, the lost loot, which comes directly from the US Mint, will explode if not recovered in a short time. Now, #Panic ensues, as various entities go after that money. 💰💸

arlenefinnigan Double link. Nice! 1w
gradcat @arlenefinnigan Had to do it...no time the day before, so what‘s a Litten to do, but double duty! 😂 7d

Recently unemployed & newly single, Jules Larsen answers a mysterious ad as an apartment sitter at the Bartholomew. There are plenty of peculiar rules & mysterious residents, but #moneystootighttomention for Jules. I've read every Sager book & this is easily the best one. One of my favorite thrillers of the year.

Cathythoughts Nice review... must get this one so 1w
Cinfhen I wasn‘t that impressed from her first book that I haven‘t tried any of her newer ones. Maybe I‘ll reconsider reading this book 🤓 1w
arlenefinnigan Good advice in the title, there. 1w

vivastory @Leftcoastzen AJ Finn *cough* *cough* 😂 1w
Cinfhen Fair enough. Im willing to try another book by HIM 1w
Leftcoastzen Yeah , AJ Finn who has an interesting article published about him in the New Yorker back in February. (edited) 1w
vivastory @Leftcoastzen Yeah, I read part of it. I'm planning on reading the full piece after I read Finn's book. My favorite part of the article was Sophie Hannah's working title for one of her books, "You're So Vain, You Probably Think This Poirot is About You" ? 1w

I‘ve not yet read anything by former Greek Finance Minister (briefly) and economist Yanis Varoufakis. This little mini might be a good place to start #MoneysTooTightToMention #RedRoseSeptember

Sugar, a prostitute in 19th century London, is determined to lead a better life. #MoneysTooTightToMention , so she decides to find someone who can lift her out of her current circumstances. Enter Mr Rackham. Faber‘s epic story is spellbinding. I read this ages ago but can still remember descriptions of Mrs Rackham‘s wife and how dry Sugar‘s skin is. #RedRoseSeptember

arlenefinnigan Sounds an interesting read! 1w
ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled Me too! I still remember the descriptions of the lavender fields. Love this book! 1w
SauerPatch I‘m glad to see a (good?) review of this. I sometimes wonder what I missed out on because it was a hard DNF for me. :/ 1w

Librarybelle @arlenefinnigan It‘s a #chunkster , so a big commitment! 😂 1w
Librarybelle @ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled Faber seems to have a descriptive flare to his writing. 1w
Librarybelle @SauerPatch I did like this one! It‘s been at least 15 years since I read it, but I do recall Faber‘s language to be much more literary. Also, the length and the commitment to it seemed rather daunting. But, he somehow grabbed me in his story of Sugar. That‘s why books are so incredible - we each have a different experience with them. I definitely know some who have tried to read this one and just couldn‘t. 1w
Cinfhen I bought this book because @Centique has not stopped raving about it along with @Reviewsbylola & @Kalalalatja 1w
Kalalalatja And I won‘t stop until you read it @Cinfhen 😉 1w
Reviewsbylola Yup, one of my favorites! @cinfhen 1w

And Brexit is not going to make it any easier, just reading the Yellowhammer summary. Doom and gloom all round.
