I think I prefer the first, if only for the newness of the supernatural/noir combination. But I really enjoyed The Wrong Goodbye. It's a little more of a road/buddy story this time out. I blew through it in a little over a weekend, like I did with Dead Harvest - and I rarely ever read a book that quickly when not on vacation.

Finished Jeffrey Eugenides's The Marriage Plot. Excellent, excellent book. The best fiction book I've read in a year.

I keep finding these in the bargain bins here (which means the books are $10 instead of $30)... let us know how it is.

It was alright... it had a lot of potential but falls short.

It's well written and the general premise is good. The concept of memories being different based on perspective is interesting, but it wasn't executed well enough into the story I found. Overall I wasn't immersed into the story as much as I'd hoped. There's enough good in the book that I'm willing to give his next fiction work a try.
